    It is the buyer who escalates to a claim. You just need to email through the dispute and politely say item was sold as used so it's not expected to be like a brand new item but it was working as described. EBay will decide. If she wins, she has to post it back to you at her expense by tracked mail and you get the $16 taken back off you and given to her. So you both "lose" money with the shipping cost. Buyers can always lodge disputes even if you say "no returns". No returns is more to do with them changing their mind or not liking it and you agreeing to accept the item back. But again, the buyer loses out on shipping costs, a refund would only be the item price, the shipping to them and the shipping back to you for a refund would be at their cost. So it's actually better to say you'll accept a return for a refund but the buyer pays all shipping costs. The buyer is probably not realizing that she is going to have to pay shipping to return the item.
