The period of this standard warranty is provided in the respective manual. Within the warranty period, if an instrument is malfunctioning, WPI will provide technical assistance through telephone or email to attempt to make the instrument operational. If it is determined that the instrument requires repair, we will issue a Return Material Authorization (RMA) so that the user can ship the unit back to our Precision Care Center, typically Sarasota, Florida, USA. Once at our repair facility we will repair the instrument and return it to the user free of charge if the cause of failure is determined to be a manufacturing defect. In the event the malfunction is not caused by manufacturing defect, such as a liquid spill, we will contact the user and advise on the cost of repair unless another service program is in place.

EXTENDED WARRANTY 

MECHANICAL BREAKDOWN AND ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE – This Service Contract provides repair or replacement coverage for hardware failures due to normal wear and tear including accidental damage (such as drops, liquid spills, and mechanical breakage).  Should we repair your Covered Product, we will restore its hardware and preloaded manufacturer’s functionality to the manufacturer’s written specifications.

Within the Total Care warranty period, if an instrument is malfunctioning, WPI will provide technical assistance through telephone or email to attempt to make the instrument operational. If it is determined that the instrument requires repair, we will issue a Return Material Authorization (RMA) and a TOTAL CARE label to affix in the shipping box, so that the user can ship the unit back to the WPI Precision Care Center – the repair center, typically at Sarasota Florida, USA. Once at the Precision Care Center, we will repair the instrument and return it to the user free of charge within 3 business days from receiving the unit.
