There is more that was left on the description:
* Broken plastic supports
* Missing screws
* Paper/label glued (strong glue!) all on the back
* The battery wires are corroded also, as some part of the PCB
* Leaked LCD display (already mentioned)
I was able to put it to work, but the display is only 2/3 readable. As the unit was opened by someone and left opened, the seller could tell the state of the battery.
I found the printer cover, it was wrapped on paper and I thought it was only filling stuff (my luck that I don't threw away the garbage!). My mistake.
But as was said, it isn't more about the item, is about the behavior of the seller. Ok, I was silly enough to haven't readed the other feedbacks. I wasn't the only that put a neutral one and received a negative!
I sold once on eBay, and when the buyer paid I wrote a positive feedback even before I posted the item. And I'll continue to do that.
It is all about trust. The buyer is allways on the weak side of the rope. We pay in advance and wait for the item to arrive - even months - and when the item wasn't that we are waiting, it is very frustrating. I'm shure that I'm not the only one with this feeling.
Best regards to all, and good luck to Cathy and much more luck to her buyers.
