Remote problem
diagnosis and support
Once the Customer has placed and HP has acknowledged the receipt of a call
as described in the ‘General provisions/Other exclusions’ section, HP will work
during the coverage window to isolate the hardware incident and to remotely
troubleshoot, remedy, and resolve the incident with the Customer. Prior to
any onsite assistance, HP may initiate and perform remote diagnostics using
electronic remote support solutions to access covered products, or HP may
use other means available to facilitate remote incident resolution.
• Call-to-repair time commitment in lieu of onsite
response time for hardware support (optional
for eligible products only)
• Enhanced parts inventory management
(included with select, optional call-to-repair
time commitments)
HP will provide telephone assistance during the service coverage window
for installation of customer-installable firmware and Customer Self Repair
(CSR) parts.
• Desktop-/workstation-/thin client-/notebookonly coverage (optional for eligible products)
Regardless of the Customer’s coverage window, incidents with covered hardware
can be reported to HP via telephone or Web portal, as locally available, or as an
automated equipment reporting event via the HP electronic remote support
solutions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. HP retains the right to determine the
final resolution of all reported incidents.

Onsite hardware
support
For hardware incidents that cannot, in HP’s judgment, be resolved remotely, an
HP authorized representative will provide onsite technical support on covered
hardware products to return them to operating condition. For certain products,
HP may, at its sole discretion, elect to replace such products in lieu of repairing
them. Replacement products are new or functionally equivalent to new in
performance. Replaced products become the property of HP.
Once an HP authorized representative arrives at the Customer’s site, the
representative will continue to deliver the service, either onsite or remotely,
at the discretion of HP, until the products are repaired. Work may be temporarily
suspended if parts or additional resources are required, but work will resume
when they become available. Work to completion may not apply to onsite
support provided for desktop, mobile, and consumer products. Repair is
considered complete upon HP verification that the hardware malfunction
has been corrected or that the hardware has been replaced.

A call-to-repair time commitment may be selected for eligible products in
lieu of an onsite response time. For critical incidents (severity 1 or 2) with
covered hardware that cannot be resolved remotely, HP will use commercially
reasonable efforts to return the covered hardware to operating condition
within the specified call-to-repair time commitment. For noncritical incidents
(severity 3 or 4), or at the Customer’s request, HP will work with the Customer
to schedule an agreed-upon time for the remedial action to commence, and the
call-to-repair time commitment will then start at that time. Incident severity
levels are defined in the ‘General provisions/Other exclusions’ section.
Call-to-repair time refers to the period of time that begins when the initial
call has been received and acknowledged by HP, as specified in the ‘General
provisions/Other exclusions’ section. Call-to-repair time ends with HP’s
determination that the hardware is repaired or when the reported event is
closed with the explanation that HP has determined it does not currently
require onsite intervention. Call-to-repair times are measured during the
coverage window only and may be carried over to the next day for which
there exists a coverage window.
Call-to-repair time options available for eligible products are specified
in the Service-level options table. All call-to-repair times are subject to
local availability. Contact a local HP sales office for more information.
Repair is considered complete upon HP verification that the hardware
malfunction has been corrected or that the hardware has been replaced.
HP is not liable for any lost data, and the Customer is responsible for
implementing appropriate backup procedures. Verification by HP may
be accomplished by the completion of a power-on self-test, standalone
diagnostic, or visual verification of proper operation. At its sole discretion,
HP will determine the level of testing necessary to verify that the hardware
is repaired. At its sole discretion, HP may temporarily or permanently replace
the product in order to meet the repair time commitment. Replacement
products are new or functionally equivalent to new in performance.
Replaced products become the property of HP.
It will take 30 days from the time this service is purchased to set up and
perform necessary audits and processes before the hardware call-to-repair
time commitment is in effect. During this initial 30-day period and for up to
5 additional business days after the audit is completed, HP will provide a
4-hour onsite response time.

Consumable items including, but not limited to, removable media, customer-replaceable
batteries and tablet PC pens, maintenance kits, and other supplies, as well as user maintenance
and non-HP devices, are not covered by this service. HP Notebook and Tablet long-life batteries
are covered for up to 3 years.
For replacement parts and components that are discontinued, an upgrade path may be
required. Upgrades for discontinued parts or components may in some cases result in
additional charges to the Customer. HP will work with the Customer to recommend a
replacement. Not all components will have available replacements in all countries due
to local support capabilities.
Prerequisites
The Customer must have rightfully acquired the license for any underlying firmware that
will be covered under these services.
HP, at its sole discretion, may require an audit on the covered products. If such an audit is
required, an HP authorized representative will contact the Customer, and the Customer will
agree to arrange for an audit to be performed within the initial 30-day timeframe. During
the audit, key system configuration information is collected and an inventory of the covered
products is performed. The information gathered in the audit enables HP to plan and maintain
replacement part inventories at the appropriate level and location, and allows HP to survey and
troubleshoot possible future hardware incidents so that repairs can be completed as quickly
and efficiently as possible. At the sole discretion of HP, the audit may be performed onsite, via
remote system access, via remote audit tools, or over the phone.
If an audit is required by HP, it will take 30 days from the time this service is purchased to set
up and perform the audits and processes that must be completed before the hardware callto-repair time commitment can be put into effect. The hardware call-to-repair time commitment
will not take effect until five (5) business days after the audit has been completed. Until such
time, service for the covered hardware will be delivered at a 4-hour onsite response time
service level.
In addition, HP reserves the right to downgrade service to an onsite response time or cancel
the service contract if critical audit suggestions are not followed or the audit is not performed
within the specified timeframe, unless the delay is caused by HP.
For hardware onsite response time options, HP strongly recommends that the Customer
install and operate the appropriate HP remote support solution, with a secure connection to HP,
in order to enable the delivery of the service. For hardware call-to-repair time commitments,
HP requires that the Customer install and operate the appropriate HP remote support solution,
with a secure connection to HP, in order to enable the delivery of the service. Please contact a
local HP representative for further details on requirements, specifications, and exclusions. If the
Customer does not deploy the appropriate HP remote support solution, HP may not be able to
provide the service as defined and is not obligated to do so. Additional charges will be applied
for onsite installation of non-customer-installable firmware if the Customer does not deploy the
appropriate HP remote support solution in cases where they are recommended and available.

Data sheet | HP Hardware Support Onsite Service
Once the specified limit is reached, the cost of repair for any additional claims will be charged
on a time-and-materials basis, but all other aspects of the HP Care Pack service purchased
will remain in effect unless specifically documented otherwise in the country of purchase.
For those Customers with a history of significantly high claims, HP also reserves the right to
deny acceptance of requests to purchase the accidental damage from handling service feature.
Limitations to the defective media retention service feature option
The defective media retention service feature option applies only to eligible data retentive
components replaced by HP due to malfunction. They do not apply to any exchange of data
retentive components that have not failed.
Data retentive components that are specified by HP as consumable parts and/or have
reached the maximum supported lifetime and/or the maximum usage limit as set forth in
the manufacturer’s operating manual, the product QuickSpecs, or the technical data sheet
are not covered by this service.
Defective media retention service coverage for options designated by HP as requiring separate
coverage, if available, must be configured and purchased separately.
Failure rates on these components are constantly monitored, and HP reserves the right
to cancel this service with 30 days’ notice if HP reasonably believes that the Customer is
overusing the defective media retention service feature option (such as when replacement
of defective data retentive components materially exceeds the standard failure rates for the
system involved).
Exclusions to the maintenance kit replacement
service feature
Excluded from the maintenance kit replacement optional service feature are activities such as,
but not limited to, the following:
•Any repair beyond the replacement of the maintenance kit; should the Customer’s printer
need any additional part replacements, there will be a separate charge for this service.
•Maintenance kits for HP printers can only be replaced by authorized HP technicians.
General provisions/Other exclusions
HP will acknowledge a call by logging a case, communicating the case ID to the Customer,
and confirming the Customer’s incident severity and time requirements for commencement
of remedial action. Note: For events received via the HP electronic remote support solutions,
HP is required to contact the Customer, determine the incident severity with the Customer,
and arrange access to the system before the hardware call-to-repair time or hardware onsite
response time period can start.
Hardware support onsite response time and call-to-repair time commitment may differ
depending on incident severity. The Customer determines the incident severity level.
Incident severity is defined as:
•Severity 1—Critical Down: for example, production environment down: production system
or production application down/at severe risk; data corruption/loss or risk; business severely
affected; safety issues
•Severity 2—Critically Degraded: for example, production environment severely impaired;
production system or production application interrupted/compromised; risk of reoccurrence;
significant impact on business
•Severity 3—Normal: for example, non-production system (e.g., test system) down or degraded;
production system or production application degraded with workaround in place; noncritical
functionality lost; limited impact on the business
•Severity 4—Low: for example, no business or user impact

Travel zones
All hardware onsite response times apply only to sites located within 100 miles (160 km)
of an HP designated support hub. Travel to sites located within 200 miles (320 km) of an
HP designated support hub is provided at no additional charge. If the site is located more
than 200 miles (320 km) from the HP designated support hub, there will be an additional
travel charge.
If the product is located or is to be installed outside of the specified travel zone, or the site
location is not accessible by driving and thus requires special access (e.g., oil rigs, ships, remote
areas in deserts, etc.), service may be subject to additional support charges, longer response
times, reduced coverage hours, or pickup and return service delivery, as determined by HP.
Please check local support conditions with your HP sales representative.
Travel zones and charges, if applicable, may vary in some geographic locations.
Response times to sites located more than 100 miles (160 km) from an HP designated support
hub will have modified response times for extended travel, as shown in the table below.
A call-to-repair time commitment is available for sites located within 50 miles (80 km) of an
HP designated support hub.
For sites that are located within 51 to 100 miles (81 to 160 km) of an HP designated support
hub, an adjusted hardware call-to-repair time commitment applies, as shown in the table below.
