I purchased a Sharp GF-9595 from seller volodymyry123.
item id: 190878503698
This seller currently has other boomboxes on ebay.

Boombox arrived today, packed very well!

But, it has extensive water damage.
all chrome and all metal has pockmarks from mold.
grill has some rust that was Not visible in Ebay ad. (?)
All connectors have rust.
Inside the tape door is more rust, and mold.
Mild spores are actually coming out the cracks in the bottom of the boombox.

No mention of the mold in the ad, and I have allergies to mold. :(

To make matters worse, our Grandma got sick smelling it, and ordered it out of the house. It is on the porch now , in a sealed box. Any takers? Trash pickup is Friday.

Seller's ad says no returns accepted, but I will try returning it, thanks for the suggestion. If I can not return it I will offer it up for parts, in the for sale area.

That's what I would do :yes: I hate when sellers don't reveal stuff or show in pics. I especially hate when they don't have pics of actual item for sale :nonono:

The Huggajoe is absolutely correct. Contact eBay immediately and take plenty of pics of what you got.

I checked the MW band and it works great with out any problems. I do not know about the other bands.

In other words, it can't pick up FM stereo, and he doesn't want to say so :lol:

How sad! :(

 

Don't leave that crook alone! Contact him for a full refund and notify EBay for this cheating!

He shouldn't do this to other folks. :no:

 

Damn people! How can someone cheat like this? Crooks! :(

 

How disappointing it is to open a nicely packed box and see crap inside?

 

I was thinking of this happening to me when I hide from my wife all day long and open it in the garage when she is fast asleep. I would have fainted there! :sick:

Thanks everyone and ira, who convinced me that ebay rules trump a dishonest seller.
I was able to get a full refund for the sharp 9595 box thanks to ebay. seller was ignoring most of my emails all through the process.
I think the seller may be foreign ? unable to read much english ?

I never did try to turn the radio on. I did not want to kick up the mold spores which were making everyone sick. it went in a plastic bin stored 10 feet from the house, then grandma moved it to 30 feet because she could still smell the mold.

anyone who buys it should know that mold never goes away.. only lies dorment at best.

even still, all the chrome is pock-marked due to the water damage. Similar to the bumpers on old cars in New York, where salt eats away at the metal.

You mean the seller did that AGAIN? It was that way when I bought it last time!
it gives someone an out though, a way to cancel a purchase. they can say they were just buying what they thought was a sharp jvc m90, for their friend, who likes jvc boomboxes. :)

Shipping to Canada as well? That box is heavy, it will not be cheap. if he has to return it.

In my opinion, this sharp 9595 is overpriced and is in non-collectible condition. Search your local landfill with a shovel if you really need a box like this.

Hmmm....well, I bought tons of stuff from the US on ePrey, sold tons of stuff to US buyers, on ePrey & I live across the river from Detroit in Windsor, Ontario so yeah, its not that bad at all & definitely Au. shipping is more costly, takes longer, etc.  Personally, I hate these types of comments 'cause it discourages members from selling to us Canucks but hey, people have their opinions, I guess.  I've had no problems at all.  If you know what you are doing as a buyer or seller then it isn't an issue at all.  VintageMan is a good bloke & no dummy so yeah, of course he didn't see this before buying it.

My statement is true as I've shipped and received boxes from both Australia and Canada. I shipped an M70 to Canada and cost was over $100 and took over a week then I shipped quite a few to Australia of same size and weight and it cost about same and took less than week. I also shipped my 777 to Canada and it cost almost $200. So yes shipping to and from Canada is more costly than shipping to other side of World. My comment shouldn't discourage anyone because when a collector really wants something they usually will pay shipping no matter the cost :yes:

By the way I have nothing against vintageman buying unit but we are all looking out for each other. That is why these posts are made and since you are his friend you should also help to discourage the buying of a junk box that will cost a bundle to ship back to seller :yes:

Thank you brothers. You learn from your mistakes.. I hardly had my eyes open when I looked at the pics and saw the price. Someone brought too my attention the seller. After speaking with him learned it was found at a goodwill. FM works. And don't work. Powers. Up. Line in works fine. I have seen the pics. I took it for 100 and free shipping. None of my units come too Canada. I have USA shipping addresses. I will let ya know what happens. I will rip it apart and disinfect it if this was the case. Repaint the grills and deoxit the switches.. If it don't work out only out a hundred bucks.. And stick it in my shed for outdoor use..... He got himself a lemon. And I love too tinker. It will never enter my house till I check it out first.

Good luck! At least my thread saved you about 60$.
In exchange for the 60$ you saved :) please take some pictures of the inside before you clean it. I am
very curious if the fuzzy mold around the cassette head is also all over the insides.
Oh and be careful about playing your nice tapes in it until cleaned ..because some of the cassette components have surface rust.

$100 shipped is actually not to bad. Worse comes to worse you always got a great parts unit, speakers, antennas etc....

That's interesting, but could this be because to Australia... it spends most the distance on a plane, giving the ability to have it flown to the nearest big airport??? Whereas, to Canada, it probably spends most it's time, on a truck, with a more limited amount of packages, compared to a plane???  That would be my best guess anyways.
