Best Buy Geek Squad won't fix hardware issues - I am geek squad customer

I had a issue where my HP Envy dv6 ( 4 years old) has fan issues. Geek Squad won't fix it. I am geek squad customer. They mentioned they can try sending it but it will cost me possibly 300 to resolve.  

 

All they do is install softwares , take backups and few things here and there.. This is waste of $$ for people who already are aware of how to ffx small issues. 

 

Why will someone want to pay 150+ to get this done in this age, They really need to start revising their hardware teams. 

 

 

On asking the rep, she mentioned if I have another newer laptop or ipad issue, she can help.. but why will someone have issues with newer laptop.

 

I am a very unhappy customer.

It's out of warranty... To old for a service plan... Any repairs would be at your expense. And they can't keep parts for every laptop ever made the the store it would need to be sent in..

Hey, rakeshbbpahuja,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us on the Forums. I'm sorry to hear that you are not able to get your laptop repaired. A Geek Squad Protection Plan is a great way to protect your new product, and I'm sorry to hear that you had unexpected costs while attempting to get this repaired.

O! yea, and they need a laptop bought from yesterday to service? That scenario won't happen ever. 

So best buy geek squad is better off installing anti-virus and screen protectors for the plan and good for nothing else.

I am a geek squad customer if you didn't catch that in my message. Now why will best buy not fix the hardware issue ? Answer provided b y geek squad: They are too scared to open up and cause another damage. If they are too scared then it is better they install softwares and ani-virus . The plan I took deserves more than that.. I should be refunded.

They have 2 types of plans.

A service plan for individual items (an extended warranty) which covers hardware

A tech support yearly subscription which covers software, antivirus etc for multiple devices.

You obviously have the software plan...
