Exchange with Canon re G7 failure to power up

This blog records unsatisfactory service from CANON – the email below now results in a computer response allthough their incident number is in the subject line – the question I ask is why do I only now get computer responses, am I being “put on hold”?



I have had no response to this email after 4 days – can you please assist?

I don’t understand your email of 14 July 2008 which I reply to here – seems to be a delaying strategy.

I made my first request online and got the automated response below:

Canon Europe Web Self-Service-3.jpg

You clearly had my problem which is highlighted in green.

Before any further feed back I received your attached email which was the one I responded to online via the link therein and you now seem unable to link back to the original call although you have the code.

Please respond to my original question – its now a week since my first request and I have no response to my original question, and now another request “ confirm that your request has been handled satisfactorily before it is closed…” today.

Not acceptable.
