What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: If your product requires service during
the limited warranty period, please call Epson at the number on the bottom of this
statement and be prepared to provide the model, serial number, and date of original
purchase. Epson will, at its option, repair or replace the defective unit, without charge
for parts or labor. If Epson authorizes an exchange for the defective unit, Epson will
ship a replacement product to you, freight prepaid, so long as you use an address in
the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico. You are responsible for securely packaging
the defective unit and returning it to Epson within five (5) working days of receipt of
the replacement. Epson requires a debit or a credit card number to secure the cost of
the replacement product in the event that you fail to return the defective one. If Epson
authorizes repair instead of exchange, Epson will direct you to send your product to
Epson or its authorized service center, where the product will be repaired and sent back
to you. You are responsible for packing the product and for all costs to and from the
Epson authorized service center. When warranty service involves the exchange of the
product or of a part, the item replaced becomes Epson property. The exchanged product
or part may be new or refurbished to the Epson standard of quality, and at Epson's
option, the replacement may be another model of like kind and quality. Epson's liability
for replacement of the covered product will not exceed the original retail selling
price of the covered product. Exchange or replacement products or parts assume the
remaining warranty period of the product covered by this limited warranty.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in the
United States, Canada or Puerto Rico. Twenty-four hours per day or other excessive
continual use is not considered normal use. This warranty is not transferable. Epson is
not responsible for warranty service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label
or serial number be removed. Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the
product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse,
abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters
such as fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical current, software problems,
interaction with non-Epson products, or service other than by Epson or an Epson
Authorized Servicer. Postage, insurance, or shipping costs incurred in presenting your
Epson product for carry-in warranty service are your responsibility. If a claimed defect
cannot be identified or reproduced in service, you will be held responsible for costs
