    DJI "support" is non-existant for exchanges of DOA products

    I bought a third P4 battery direct from DJI, and it was DOA; Dead On Arrival. It will NOT take a charge, tho my others will. I called DJI about a return and replacement, and got this BS in return by email, with my reply to the BS at the start. The blanks are what they sent; for example "Dear {!Account:Account Name;} ". I've changed nothing in their reply beyond eliminating about 20 blank lines.

    What a pain in the butt! Anyone else had this experience? Talk about inscruitable!

    Or maybe he is.

    DJI Support:

    This makes absolutely no sense. Attached is a copy of the order info. You sent me a dead battery for Phantom 4 that will not take a charge. I told you on the phone that I do not have a working printer attached to this computer, and requested on the phone that you print and mail a return shipping label to me.

    Instead I get this crap with forms to fill out with information I don't have so you can send me something online for me to print on the printer I don't have.

    I bought a Phantom 4 battery direct from DJI for $79 after DJI Credit of $90.. You sent me a defective battery that will not take a charge, or even show one LED when connected to the charger.

    Surely DJI has a working printer somewhere so that they can print a return shipping label and send it to me by snail-mail, so I can attach it to a package to send you for a replacement.

    Im not seeing the problem here. Seems pretty reasonable and straight forward. Do you know someone with a printer? If you stick to the scripted processes you might be suprised how well this turns out. Asking for a label to be printed and posted or anything else out of the ordinary often takes things off track.
