Whenever you want to return material to LaVision GmbH for inspection or repair, you must request a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number before sending it back.
Please be aware that if you return material without an RMA number, we reserve the right to reject the material. In order to obtain an RMA number please contact your local dealer or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide information on item and serial number of all the devices you want to send including a brief description of the failure.
LaVision GmbH will return an RMA form to you via email. Please cross check and if necessary correct the list of items and your contact details on the RMA form. Sign the form and add it to the shipping documents.
Fix the shipping label clearly visible on your return packaging. The products must be returned with freight pre-paid, in original product boxes and packaged in protective materials. LaVision GmbH will not be responsible for any damage occuring during transit of returning products.
LaVision GmbH will send a receipt to the email address specified on the RMA form as soon as the items have been received. After the inspection of the items LaVision GmbH will send a cost estimate for the repair if this is not free of charge. The repair itself will be carried out after receiving your purchase order. PURCHASE ORDER
If your system is no longer covered by a warranty or any part of the warranty has expired, you will need to supply a purchase order according to the LaVision GmbH cost estimate to cover the repair.
If your system is within warranty then any valid repairs will be carried out at no cost to you. We will inspect the items and if in our opinion the warranty has been invalidated in any way, we will inform you of this immediately and of any associated repair costs. REPAIR WARRANTY
All items repaired by LaVision GmbH are warranted for a period of 90 days. This period applies only to the repaired item whether the system was under warranty or not. Systems repaired under warranty keep the original warranty period or 90 days, which ever is longer. SHIPPING POLICY
