well the seller says hes authorized.how can i supposedly ask him and do u think he will tell me the truth?and one more thing.the other guy who has same issue bought from another amazon fulfilled seller.so are they all selling grey market items.then for sure this is a bigger scam that amazon is involved in.\n\nsecondly if hes unauthorized then isnt amazon guilty here and can they anymore say that they dont have any part in this to play?\nlastly i dont know if u know the way stuff works here,mostly sellers take people on a ride in india becuase they very well know people wont normally take them to court and would go ahead with the repair till they meet sm mad people like me who will go to the extent of taking a legal action.\n\nafter the consumer forum thru which i wud be sending my legal notice sent a formal mail to yamaha music india they happened to call me today afternoon after being in hibernation for this long.I have sent them all the data i have and have asked them to refund\/replace or take it back for free as i am not ok with a repair and i have this strong feeling that this is certainly going to end up in court coz they wont refund\/replace and i wont be giving up without a fight\n\nand since u have been telling this i have also put this forward to yamaha and they said they will verify with the serial\nnumber.when they get back i will definitly update here.see i have nothing against or for a particular company but if they confirm that this is made for india then surely this is a really grave issue not becuse\nof the voltages etc but its a big question mark on the so called quality of recent yamaha products\n\n\nI think you have come up with the correct route to pursue this matter. Yes, please keep us informed. If that dealer is not authorized then it will be difficult. If he is not you should report all these facts to Amazon. If he is authorized, then Yamaha should replace your unit. As I said before this is not a repair issue, but a replacement issue most likely.
