No, it is obvious by other things, for example the foam on the 4 pin connector that is present and torn, the foam was attached, them removed from something. It is not new, if you look close, you can tell.You think it is used..... It could be a scratch from the factory. Cal the store or email before you go shouting and attempting to get a mob to support you.
No mob needed, just very disappointed. I am grown up, I have stated what I see. No yelling or screaming or demanding money or anything. It was less than $50, so nothing to get over excited about. Maybe they got it from somewhere that sold MP3car a used unit, I don't know. I have not (yet) directly accused anyone of fraud or anything else. It is probably just a mistake by someone.
no, I wish there wasIs there a protective plastic overlay on the display that hasn't been removed and that might have become scratched?
have u tried calling the store for a replacement? unit might have got scratched accidentally.I will call as soon as possible, but I am leaving for vacation later today (Sunday) for a week and cannot phone them immediately. Besides just got in mail Sat afternoon and the store is not open until Monday. Email sent though.Definately ring / email the store. I am sure they will sort it out for you.
I will update as soon as I get back. I guess I will not have touch panel on the road this week. No roadrunner and no Nav. I am going to a car club meet and wanted to show off my setup.
We do not ship used touch panels, these are all unused. It sounds like you have received a touchscreen that was somehow scratched in storage. Please email the store and we will ship you out another touch panel.
Also, we have not received an email from you at all regarding this issue, and I see above that you write that you submitted a ticket.
In the future, should you have an RMA issue, please email the store directly, so that you can be assisted immediately.

What was your order number?

(Order#: 30010 placed on 8/12/2008)
I sent an email tonight to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that the screen is clearly used, it wont work as its scratched and one of the wires is cut and that the product description doe snot state its a used part. Everyone is entitled to the benefit of doubt and hopefully I'll receive an answer tomorrow morning and a NEW touchscreen this weekend. But it is still suspicious that this is happening to other people too.
I have faith that this is just a mistake. I chose mp3car store instead of a honk kong vendor even though mp3car store was more expensive hoping to get good service.
Heather from mp3car store contacted me and everything is solved now. They are going to send me a replacement screen today.
She explained that these replacement touchscreens are pulled from new monitors that were never used. That explains why they have foam glued to the connector. In this case it seems the screen got scratched while in storage and they didn't catch the problem before mailing it.
She updated the product description to reflect where the touchscreens come from.
