    No, it means a warranty for all factors: faulty wiring, poor performance, falling apart, etc.
    Full warranty usually comes with an asterisk and small print. You have to read the small print to discover what "full" means.

    Hello,

    The only think I can tell you is when you buy something in a shop, the warranty of the product has a length of time. After this, you stay with it without guarantee.

    However a full warranty can include the time spended by the person who is working on the trouble. In fact you can consider that the lifetime warranty do not take the price for the transport or another things who is not precisely included, spare part for example.

    Hope it's help you.

    See you later on the forum.

    Re: full warranty?

    No offense meant. Reading your reply, I just couldn't refrain from drawing a parallel with Mark Twain's great character, Huckleberry Finn, with whom you share a taste for, ehem, rather unusual forms of past participles. (spended?). Most of our mistakes are understandable in terms of
    coherence and it sometimes turns out that it is the language that should be blamed. This very morning, as I was strolling, I caught someone saying "we goed" (I couldn't make out more of his speech) The young creature inside the pram had, it seems, never heard of irregular verbs.
    Why on earth should we say "we went" ? Bloody grammar !

    Hello,

    I realize I have made a mistake, but I believe the better thing you can do it's to correct my answer with explanation about the grammar points to show me way.

    Thanks and see you later and the forum.

    Re: full warranty?

    OK I'll try and give you a hand.
    Here's your post:

    Hello,

    I do not understand what do you have written. Can you explain us what the issue is ?

    See you later on the forum.


    1st inaccuracy: word order. When asking a question in reported speech, reverse the terms of the sentence so that the subject goes first and the verb ends your sentence.

    -What is the issue ? (correct)
    -Can you explain what the issue is ? (correct)
    -Can you explain what is the issue ? (bullocks !)

    2nd inaccuracy: misusage of the word "issue". An issue is indeed a problem, but in the present context "problem" is preferable. An issue is a far more concerning problem. Consider the paper, "the Big Issue", which beggars sell in the streets of Britain. It deals with poverty and pauperisation, something overwhelmingly beyond grammar ! (or is it ?)

    This is normal grammar for an English-speaking child who is learning the formation of the regular past participle. Children will often regress from saying "I saw" to "I seed" etc. when they are going through this phase. In fact most of the early past participles that a child uses are irregular, so for a while it might appear that their grammar is going backwards.
