|Service at C. Farmer Ltd.|
|Our busy service department is located
above the rear of our new expanded store at 29 Causeway lane. We undertake repairs on the premises to TV's, DVD
Players and Recorders, Audio
Equipment, Satellite Receivers, and Microwave Ovens. Service for most White Goods is carried out by the relevant
manufacturers service network.
I'm Nigel Goodwin, Chief Engineer at C. Farmer Ltd, and I have over 30 years experience in the TV service trade. I am twice winner of 'Sharp Electronics Engineer of the Year (TV & VCR section)', and once winner of 'Grundig Satellite Engineer of the Year'. In order to keep up to date with modern technology I regularly attend manufacturers training courses, both on particular products and new technology. Besides myself we have two outside engineers to provide service calls in the customers homes, any repairs which require workshop attention are delivered to our Matlock service department.
We are also a Sony certified service agent for LCD and Plasma TV's, both in and out of warranty, as well as most of the Sony product range.
The Derbyshire Dales is generally a poor place for TV reception, it's mostly impossible to receive either CH5 or Digital TV terrestrially - they are only available via satellite. There are a fair number of transmitters which can be received at various places in our service area, most of them are listed here: Local Transmitters and Relays.
As a major Sky ASA dealer, we deal with a lot of customer queries, in particular asking how to set the Sky remote to work a particular TV, so we've provided all the details here, another common request is how to receive different ITV regions, again this is covered here.
