Now a 2nd board has broken!

They sent me this unit 60 days ago!!! It is well within the warranty.

I have 5 other Antminers in the same room - they are alll working fine.

Obviously it is a defective machine.

i dont know what to do now - ? Send the whole machin back to them? So they can tell me the logistics broke it!!!!!???

F**K IT

I am really pissed off with these morons.

Do I really need to take them to court? To get my money back? What a joke.

I might just fly over to Hong Kong and put a brick through their car window.
Maybe not today, maybe in 5 years time, I will find some Bitmain staff's car and smash it up with a baseball bat.
I am a big fan of revenge served up cold.
They will never know why but one day something valuable of theirs will be broken.
i do not forget my enemies.

Dear will,

The problem is not we do not repair but the hashboard can not be fixed anymore because of that two of chips were falled down and the PIN on the board were damaged in the way of returning.

Please check the picture attached.

Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns.

Best regards,
Andy
Bitmain


So now they are claiming that it got damaged when I sent it back to them - so they wont repair it!!!!!!
It was broken anyway.

What a bunch of piss-taking assh**les !

no i dont have a picture, but when i sent it to them it looked comletely normal - no burnt parts or anything like that.

now a 2 nd board has died.

I don't know if i should send the whole machine back to them. Maybe there is a fault with the fans, who knows?

I don't trust those A**HOLES to send me a new machine.

$1800 ..... turned to shit.

F**K YOU BITMAIN

I HAVE THIS F**KING MACHINE LESS THAN 60 days

AND IT IS F**KED, WHY WON'T THEY REPLACE IT !?Huh

I also had an experience with getting a S9 (12.93 TH/s version) with a bad hashboard. We received the miner on June 16th. Powered it up (we are in a data center with heavily reliable electrical systems) and the one board never turned on. Keep in mind there was still 85+ days left on their manufacturer warranty. Initially they refused to accept the warranty claim, saying there wasn't any way it came damaged and we had caused the damage. After some heavy bitching and begging, they said we could ship it back, but the repairs may not be covered by the warranty. Sent it back June 20th. Here it is August 15th and we still haven't heard a word back from them about it. Had someone inquire on the status today. We have spent well over $150k on miners from Bitmain. Luckily most of our machines have worked to spec or are within tolerance. However even with all the money that we have given them, we get no special treatment and are still treated like we are a problem. If they continue this practice, they may be subject to some international class action lawsuit.

WOW! They really are stupid. Why don't they want happy customers. Right now, I think I would NEVER recoomend Antminers And I will NEVER buy from these people again.
I hope they go bust.

I'd start with trying to get the "I'm going to smash their car" thing removed from public space. It's probably not gonna look good later.

no idea what 'the pin' is supposed to mean.

Anyway-  Bitmain have now offered to pay for me to return the 2nd faulty hash board at their expense.

AND they have said they will 'try' to replace both the faulty boards. So I am feeling hopeful now.

Shame I had to write them 100 threatening emails to get to this point but hey - at least they seem to be honoring their warranty now...

we will see.... if I ever get any hash boards back again! I hope so...

I'm surprised Bitmain capitulated to your demands, they seem so cock sure. I guess they saw the threads on the forum and decided there were too many bad publicity out here.

Hey Bitmain,

Don't capitulate! You look weak when you're strong, don't forget these idiots will come back begging for your miners sooner or later.

You might say that now, but if OP goes to court (as he claims he will), then you can bet your bottom dollar that either the laws of OP's country of origin, Chinese law or international law WILL apply. Otherwise, a court is not possible.

I'm not saying it would completely ruin his case, but posting that kinda shit will easily lead to a statement such as 'the customer used threats and aggressive behavior to state his demands'.

Bitcoin is just another commodity, like cheese or steel. In some countries it's defined as a currency, but leave that aside for now. Even if you are trading commodities across borders, it IS possible to hold someone responsible if they do not adhere to the agreement landed upon purchase or breach of any applicable law (such as protection of consumers via treaty/national law or regular agreement-laws). So, I guess, welcome to the real world where (if you have enough money to take someone to court) people are sometimes held responsible for their actions.

So even with a photo of a clean board  you were rejected.  
You know maybe  they have a bad employee  and he or she is stealing from the company. Think about this from the owners viewpoint does he really want the bad publicity that  the warranty issues are causing?  This type of publicity will hurt sales.

My photos are like yours zero visible damage to the board, but I do have  markings on my bad board. Some one penciled over the label.

Tupsu:
I'm not on Bitmain's side in this, but I was just barely able to confirm that the picture Bitmain sent for you is your board.
I used zoom and sharpen effect with Irfanview.

See picture below.

It corresponds with your original picture of the hash board, posted here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1540037.msg16016240#msg16016240
