Questions of Cash: Curry's kept me out of the picture over my faulty camera complaint

Q. I bought a Sony Alpha A58 camera on 29 August from Curry's. On 8 September while using the camera, the built-in flash malfunctioned.

This time something more drastic happened and it could not be closed at all.
