When the system maintenance switch position 6 is set to the On position, the system is prepared to erase all
system configuration settings from both CMOS and NVRAM.
CAUTION: Clearing CMOS and/or NVRAM deletes configuration information. Be sure to
properly configure the server or data loss could occur.
NMI jumper
The NMI jumper allows administrators to perform a memory dump before performing a hard reset. Crash
dump analysis is an essential part of eliminating reliability problems, such as hangs or crashes in OSs, device
drivers, and applications. Many crashes can freeze a system, requiring you to do a hard reset. Resetting the
system erases any information that would support root cause analysis.
Systems running Microsoft® Windows® experience a blue-screen trap when the OS crashes. When this
happens, Microsoft® recommends that system administrators perform an NMI event by temporarily shorting
the NMI header with a jumper. The NMI event enables a hung system to become responsive again.

Optimum environment
When installing the server in a rack, select a location that meets the environmental standards described in
this section.
Space and airflow requirements
To allow for servicing and adequate airflow, observe the following space and airflow requirements when
deciding where to install a rack:
Setup
27
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 63.5 cm (25 in) in front of the rack.
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 76.2 cm (30 in) behind the rack.
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 121.9 cm (48 in) from the back of the rack to the back of another rack
or row of racks.
HP servers draw in cool air through the front and expel warm air through the rear. Therefore, the front and
rear rack doors must be adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the cabinet, and the rear
door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape from the cabinet.
CAUTION: To prevent improper cooling and damage to the equipment, do not block the
ventilation openings.
When vertical space in the rack is not filled by a server or rack component, the gaps between the
components cause changes in airflow through the rack and across the servers. Cover all gaps with blanking
panels to maintain proper airflow.
CAUTION: Always use blanking panels to fill empty vertical spaces in the rack. This arrangement
ensures proper airflow. Using a rack without blanking panels results in improper cooling that can
lead to thermal damage.
The 9000 and 10000 Series Racks provide proper server cooling from flow-through perforations in the front
and rear doors that provide 64 percent open area for ventilation.
CAUTION: When using a Compaq branded 7000 series rack, install the high airflow rack door
insert (PN 327281-B21 for 42U rack, PN 157847-B21 for 22U rack) to provide proper
front-to-back airflow and cooling.
CAUTION: If a third-party rack is used, observe the following additional requirements to ensure
adequate airflow and to prevent damage to the equipment:
• Front and rear doors—If the 42U rack includes closing front and rear doors, you must allow
5,350 sq cm (830 sq in) of holes evenly distributed from top to bottom to permit adequate
airflow (equivalent to the required 64 percent open area for ventilation).
• Side—The clearance between the installed rack component and the side panels of the rack
must be a minimum of 7 cm (2.75 in).
Temperature requirements
To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the system in a well-ventilated,
climate-controlled environment.
The maximum recommended ambient operating temperature (TMRA) for most server products is 35°C
(95°F). The temperature in the room where the rack is located must not exceed 35°C (95°F).
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third-party options:
• Do not permit optional equipment to impede airflow around the server or to increase the
internal rack temperature beyond the maximum allowable limits.
• Do not exceed the manufacturer’s TMRA.
Setup
28
Power requirements
Installation of this equipment must comply with local and regional electrical regulations governing the
installation of information technology equipment by licensed electricians. This equipment is designed to
operate in installations covered by NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code) and NFPA-75, 1992
(code for Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing Equipment). For electrical power ratings on
options, refer to the product rating label or the user documentation supplied with that option.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, fire, or damage to the equipment, do not
overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. Consult the electrical
authority having jurisdiction over wiring and installation requirements of your facility.
CAUTION: Protect the server from power fluctuations and temporary interruptions with a
regulating uninterruptible power supply. This device protects the hardware from damage caused
by power surges and voltage spikes and keeps the system in operation during a power failure.
When installing more than one server, you might need to use additional power distribution devices to safely
provide power to all devices. Observe the following guidelines:
•
Balance the server power load between available AC supply branch circuits.
•
Do not allow the overall system AC current load to exceed 80% of the branch circuit AC current rating.
•
Do not use common power outlet strips for this equipment.
•
Provide a separate electrical circuit for the server.
For more information on the hot-plug power supply and calculators to determine server power consumption
in various system configurations, see the HP Power Advisor website
(http://www.hp.com/go/hppoweradvisor).
Electrical grounding requirements
The server must be grounded properly for proper operation and safety. In the United States, you must install
the equipment in accordance with NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code), Article 250, as well as
any local and regional building codes. In Canada, you must install the equipment in accordance with
Canadian Standards Association, CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code. In all other countries, you must
install the equipment in accordance with any regional or national electrical wiring codes, such as the
International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Code 364, parts 1 through 7. Furthermore, you must be sure
that all power distribution devices used in the installation, such as branch wiring and receptacles, are listed
or certified grounding-type devices.
Because of the high ground-leakage currents associated with multiple servers connected to the same power
source, HP recommends the use of a PDU that is either permanently wired to the building’s branch circuit or
includes a nondetachable cord that is wired to an industrial-style plug. NEMA locking-style plugs or those
complying with IEC 60309 are considered suitable for this purpose. Using common power outlet strips for
the server is not recommended.
Connecting a DC power cable to a DC power source
Setup
29
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or energy hazards:
• This equipment must be installed by trained service personnel, as defined by the NEC and IEC
60950-1, Second Edition, the standard for Safety of Information Technology Equipment.
• Connect the equipment to a reliably grounded SELV source. An SELV source is a secondary
circuit that is designed so normal and single fault conditions do not cause the voltages to
exceed a safe level (60 V direct current).
• The branch circuit overcurrent protection must be rated 20A.
WARNING: When installing a DC power supply, the ground wire must be connected before the
positive or negative leads.
WARNING: Remove power from the power supply before performing any installation steps or
maintenance on the power supply.
CAUTION: The server equipment connects the earthed conductor of the DC supply circuit to the
earthing conductor at the equipment. For more information, see the HP 750W Common Slot -48V
DC Input Hot-Plug Power Supply Kit Installation Instructions.
CAUTION: If the DC connection exists between the earthed conductor of the DC supply circuit and
the earthing conductor at the server equipment, the following conditions must be met:
• This equipment must be connected directly to the DC supply system earthing electrode
conductor or to a bonding jumper from an earthing terminal bar or bus to which the DC supply
system earthing electrode conductor is connected.
• This equipment should be located in the same immediate area (such as adjacent cabinets) as
any other equipment that has a connection between the earthed conductor of the same DC
supply circuit and the earthing conductor, and also the point of earthing of the DC system. The
DC system should be earthed elsewhere.
• The DC supply source is to be located within the same premises as the equipment.
• Switching or disconnecting devices should not be in the earthed circuit conductor between the
DC source and the point of connection of the earthing electrode conductor.
To connect a DC power cable to a DC power source:
1.
Cut the DC power cord ends no shorter than 150 cm (59.06 in).
2.
If the power source requires ring tongues, use a crimping tool to install the ring tongues on the power
cord wires.
IMPORTANT: The ring tongues must be UL approved and accommodate 12 gauge wires.
IMPORTANT: The minimum nominal thread diameter of a pillar or stud type terminal must be 3.5
mm (0.138 in); the diameter of a screw type terminal must be 4.0 mm (0.157 in).
3.
Stack each same-colored pair of wires and then attach them to the same power source. The power cord
consists of three wires (black, red, and green).

Memory options
IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing LRDIMMs, RDIMMs, or UDIMMs. Attempting
to mix any combination of these DIMMs can cause the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
The memory subsystem in this server can support LRDIMMs, RDIMMs, or UDIMMs:
Hardware options installation
42
•
UDIMMs represent the most basic type of memory module and offer lower latency in one DIMM per
channel configurations and (relatively) low power consumption, but are limited in capacity.
•
RDIMMs offer larger capacities than UDIMMs and include address parity protection.
•
LRDIMMs support higher densities than single- and dual-rank RDIMMs, and higher speeds than
quad-rank RDIMMs. This support enables you to install more high capacity DIMMs, resulting in higher
system capacities and higher bandwidth.
IMPORTANT: Due to thermal limitations, only one of the following components can be installed
in a server at a time:
• 10 SFF drive cage
• LRDIMM
• E5-2687W processor
All types are referred to as DIMMs when the information applies to all types. When specified as LRDIMM,
RDIMM, or UDIMM the information applies to that type only. All memory installed in the server must be the
same type.
The server supports the following DIMM speeds:
•
Single- and dual-rank PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) RDIMMs operating at up to 1333 MT/s
•
Single- and dual-rank PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) RDIMMs operating at up to 1600 MT/s
•

HP Qualified memory and verifies whether installed memory has passed HP qualification and test processes.
Qualified memory is performance-tuned for HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers and provides future
enhanced support through HP Active Health and manageability software.
Certain performance features are unique with HP SmartMemory. While the industry supports DDR3-1333
RDIMM at 1.5V, this Gen8 server supports DDR3-1333 RDIMM up to 3 DIMMs per channel at 1066 MT/s
running at 1.35V. This equates to up to 20% less power at the DIMM level with no performance penalty. In
addition, the industry supports UDIMM at 2 DIMMs per channel at 1.35V at 1066 MT/s. HP SmartMemory
supports 2 DIMMs per channel at 1333 MT/s, or 25% greater bandwidth.
The 1333 MHz support for 3DPC PC3-10600H HP SmartMemory feature can be enabled through RBSU to
enable HP SmartMemory 1600 RDIMMs to run at 1.5V 3DPC at 1333 MT/s.
Memory subsystem architecture
The memory subsystem in this server is divided into channels. Each processor supports four channels, and
each channel supports three DIMM slots, as shown in the following table.

For the location of the slot numbers, see "DIMM slot locations ("DIMM slots" on page 13)."
This multi-channel architecture provides enhanced performance in Advanced ECC mode. This architecture
also enables Lockstep and Online Spare Memory modes.
DIMM slots in this server are identified by number and by letter. Letters identify the population order. Slot
numbers indicate the DIMM slot ID for spare replacement.
Single-, dual-, and quad-rank DIMMs
To understand and configure memory protection modes properly, an understanding of single-, dual-, and
quad-rank DIMMs is helpful. Some DIMM configuration requirements are based on these classifications.
A single-rank DIMM has one set of memory chips that is accessed while writing to or reading from the
memory. A dual-rank DIMM is similar to having two single-rank DIMMs on the same module, with only one
rank accessible at a time. A quad-rank DIMM is, effectively, two dual-rank DIMMs on the same module. Only
one rank is accessible at a time. The server memory control subsystem selects the proper rank within the
DIMM when writing to or reading from the DIMM.
Dual- and quad-rank DIMMs provide the greatest capacity with the existing memory technology. For
example, if current DRAM technology supports 8-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM would be 16
GB, and a quad-rank DIMM would be 32 GB.
LRDIMMs are labeled as quad-rank DIMMs; however, they function more like dual-rank DIMMs. There are
four ranks of DRAM on the DIMM, but the LRDIMM buffer creates an abstraction that allows the DIMM to
appear as a dual-rank DIMM to the system. The LRDIMM buffer also isolates the electrical loading of the
DRAM from the system to allow for faster operation. These two changes allow the system to support up to
three LRDIMMs per memory channel, providing for up to 50% greater memory capacity and higher memory
operating speed compared to quad-rank RDIMMs.

Memory configurations
To optimize server availability, the server supports the following AMP modes:
•
Advanced ECC—provides up to 4-bit error correction and enhanced performance over Lockstep mode.
This mode is the default option for this server.
Hardware options installation
46
•
Online spare memory—provides protection against failing or degraded DIMMs. Certain memory is
reserved as spare, and automatic failover to spare memory occurs when the system detects a DIMM that
is degrading. This allows DIMMs that have a higher probability of receiving an uncorrectable memory
error (which would result in system downtime) to be removed from operation.
Advanced Memory Protection options are configured in RBSU. If the requested AMP mode is not supported
by the installed DIMM configuration, the server boots in Advanced ECC mode. For more information, see
"HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (on page 83)."
The server also can operate in independent channel mode or combined channel mode (lockstep). When
running in lockstep mode, you gain reliability in one of two ways:
•
If running with UDIMMs (built with x8 DRAM devices), the system can survive a complete DRAM failure
(SDDC). In independent channel mode, this failure would be an uncorrectable error.
•
If running with RDIMM (built with x4 DRAM devices), the system can survive the complete failure of two
DRAM devices (DDDC). Running in independent mode, the server can only survive the complete failure
of a single DRAM device (SDDC).

Advanced ECC memory configuration
Advanced ECC memory is the default memory protection mode for this server. Standard ECC can correct
single-bit memory errors and detect multi-bit memory errors. When multi-bit errors are detected using
Standard ECC, the error is signaled to the server and causes the server to halt.
Advanced ECC protects the server against some multi-bit memory errors. Advanced ECC can correct both
single-bit memory errors and 4-bit memory errors if all failed bits are on the same DRAM device on the DIMM.
Advanced ECC provides additional protection over Standard ECC because it is possible to correct certain
memory errors that would otherwise be uncorrected and result in a server failure. Using HP Advanced
Memory Error Detection technology, the server provides notification when a DIMM is degrading and has a
higher probability of uncorrectable memory error.
Online Spare memory configuration
Online spare memory provides protection against degraded DIMMs by reducing the likelihood of
uncorrected memory errors. This protection is available without any operating system support.
Online spare memory protection dedicates one rank of each memory channel for use as spare memory. The
remaining ranks are available for OS and application use. If correctable memory errors occur at a rate
higher than a specific threshold on any of the non-spare ranks, the server automatically copies the memory
contents of the degraded rank to the online spare rank. The server then deactivates the failing rank and
automatically switches over to the online spare rank.
Hardware options installation
47
Lockstep memory configuration
Lockstep mode provides protection against multi-bit memory errors that occur on the same DRAM device.
Lockstep mode can correct any single DRAM device failure on x4 and x8 DIMM types. The DIMMs in each
channel must have identical HP part numbers.
General DIMM slot population guidelines
Observe the following guidelines for all AMP modes:
•
Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
•
When two processors are installed, balance the DIMMs across the two processors.
•
White DIMM slots denote the first slot of a channel (Ch 1-A, Ch 2-B, Ch 3-C, Ch 4-D).
•
Do not mix LRDIMMs, UDIMMs, RDIMMs, or HDIMMs.
•
Do not install more than two UDIMMs per channel. UDIMMs should not be installed in slots Ch 1-I, Ch
2-J, Ch 3-K, or Ch 4-L.
•
HDIMMs require 12 DIMMs per processor.
•
When two processors are installed, install the DIMMs in sequential alphabetical order balanced
between the two processors: P1-A, P2-A, P1-B, P2-B, P1-C, P2-C, and so on.
For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool
on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator).
DIMM speeds are supported as indicated in the following table.

Controller options
The server ships with an embedded Smart Array P420i controller. For more information about the storage
controller and its features, select the relevant controller user documentation on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/go/smartstorage/docs).
To configure arrays, see the HP Smart Storage Administrator User Guide on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/go/smartstorage/docs).
Upgrade options exist for the integrated array controller. For a list of supported options, see the QuickSpecs
on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/support).
The server supports FBWC. FBWC consists of a cache module and a capacitor pack. The DDR cache module
buffers and stores data being written by the controller. When the system is powered on, the capacitor pack
charges fully in about 5 minutes. In the event of a system power failure, a fully charged capacitor pack
provides power for up to 80 seconds. During that interval, the controller transfers the cached data from DDR
memory to flash memory, where the data remains indefinitely or until a controller retrieves the data.
CAUTION: The cache module connector does not use the industry-standard DDR3 mini-DIMMs.
Do not use the controller with cache modules designed for other controller models, because the
controller can malfunction and you can lose data. Also, do not transfer this cache module to an
unsupported controller model, because you can lose data.
CAUTION: To prevent a server malfunction or damage to the equipment, do not add or remove
the battery pack while an array capacity expansion, RAID level migration, or stripe size migration
is in progress.
CAUTION: After the server is powered down, wait 15 seconds and then check the amber LED
before unplugging the cable from the cache module. If the amber LED blinks after 15 seconds, do
not remove the cable from the cache module. The cache module is backing up data, and data is
lost if the cable is detached.
IMPORTANT: The battery pack might have a low charge when installed. In this case, a POST
error message is displayed when the server is powered up, indicating that the battery pack is
temporarily disabled. No action is necessary on your part. The internal circuitry automatically
recharges the batteries and enables the battery pack. This process might take up to four hours.
During this time, the cache module functions properly, but without the performance advantage of
the battery pack.
NOTE: The data protection and the time limit also apply if a power outage occurs. When power
is restored to the system, an initialization process writes the preserved data to the hard drives.
Installing the cache module
CAUTION: In systems that use external data storage, be sure that the server is the first unit to be
powered down and the last to be powered back up. Taking this precaution ensures that the system
does not erroneously mark the drives as failed when the server is powered up.
IMPORTANT: A cache module is required for a 10 SFF drive cage. Drives installed in a 10 SFF
configuration do not function without a cache module.

HP Trusted Platform Module option
For more information about product features, specifications, options, configurations, and compatibility, see
the product QuickSpecs on the HP Product Bulletin website (http://www.hp.com/go/productbulletin).
Use these instructions to install and enable a TPM on a supported server. This procedure includes three
sections:
1.
Installing the Trusted Platform Module board (on page 69).
2.
Retaining the recovery key/password (on page 71).
3.
Enabling the Trusted Platform Module (on page 71).
Enabling the TPM requires accessing RBSU ("HP ROM-Based Setup Utility" on page 83). For more
information about RBSU, see the HP website (http://www.hp.com/support/rbsu).
TPM installation requires the use of drive encryption technology, such as the Microsoft Windows BitLocker
Drive Encryption feature. For more information on BitLocker, see the Microsoft website
(http://www.microsoft.com).
CAUTION: Always observe the guidelines in this document. Failure to follow these guidelines
can cause hardware damage or halt data access.
When installing or replacing a TPM, observe the following guidelines:
•
Do not remove an installed TPM. Once installed, the TPM becomes a permanent part of the system
board.
•
When installing or replacing hardware, HP service providers cannot enable the TPM or the encryption
technology. For security reasons, only the customer can enable these features.
•
When returning a system board for service replacement, do not remove the TPM from the system board.
When requested, HP Service provides a TPM with the spare system board.
•
Any attempt to remove an installed TPM from the system board breaks or disfigures the TPM security
rivet. Upon locating a broken or disfigured rivet on an installed TPM, administrators should consider the
system compromised and take appropriate measures to ensure the integrity of the system data.
•
When using BitLocker, always retain the recovery key/password. The recovery key/password is
required to enter Recovery Mode after BitLocker detects a possible compromise of system integrity.
•
HP is not liable for blocked data access caused by improper TPM use. For operating instructions, see the
encryption technology feature documentation provided by the operating system.

NOTE: The server ships with the same version programmed on each side of the ROM.
Safety and security benefits
When you flash the system ROM, ROMPaq writes over the backup ROM and saves the current ROM as a
backup, enabling you to switch easily to the alternate ROM version if the new ROM becomes corrupted for
any reason. This feature protects the existing ROM version, even if you experience a power failure while
flashing the ROM.
Keeping the system current
Drivers
IMPORTANT: Always perform a backup before installing or updating device drivers.
The server includes new hardware that may not have driver support on all OS installation media.
If you are installing an Intelligent Provisioning-supported OS, use Intelligent Provisioning (on page 80) and its
Configure and Install feature to install the OS and latest supported drivers.
If you do not use Intelligent Provisioning to install an OS, drivers for some of the new hardware are required.
These drivers, as well as other option drivers, ROM images, and value-add software can be downloaded as
part of an SPP.
If you are installing drivers from SPP, be sure that you are using the latest SPP version that your server
supports. To verify that your server is using the latest supported version and for more information about SPP,
see the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/spp/download).
To locate the drivers for a particular server, go to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/hpsc) and click
on Drivers, Software & Firmware. Then, enter your product name in the Find an HP product field and click
Go.
Software and firmware
Software and firmware should be updated before using the server for the first time, unless any installed
software or components require an older version.
For system software and firmware updates, use one of the following sources:
•
Download the SPP ("HP Service Pack for ProLiant" on page 82) from the HP Service Pack for ProLiant
download page (http://www.hp.com/go/spp).
•
Download individual drivers, firmware, or other systems software components from the server product
page in the HP Support Center (http://www.hp.com/go/hpsc).

Electrostatic discharge
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the system
or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage system
boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To
provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet when
standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller install
the part.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.

Customer Self Repair
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow for
greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period HP (or HP service
Support and other resources
103
providers or service partners) identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will
ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts:
•
Mandatory—Parts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts,
you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service.
•
Optional—Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for customer
self repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, there may or may not be additional
charges, depending on the type of warranty service designated for your product.
NOTE: Some HP parts are not designed for customer self repair. In order to satisfy the customer warranty,
HP requires that an authorized service provider replace the part. These parts are identified as "No" in the
Illustrated Parts Catalog.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography permits.
If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help you over the
telephone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a defective part must
be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you must ship the defective
part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days. The defective part must be
returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective
part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping
and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used.
For more information about HP's Customer Self Repair program, contact your local service provider. For the
North American program, refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Réparation par le client (CSR)
Les produits HP comportent de nombreuses pièces CSR (Customer Self Repair = réparation par le client) afin
de minimiser les délais de réparation et faciliter le remplacement des pièces défectueuses. Si pendant la
période de diagnostic, HP (ou ses partenaires ou mainteneurs agréés) détermine que la réparation peut être
effectuée à l'aide d'une pièce CSR, HP vous l'envoie directement. Il existe deux catégories de pièces CSR:
Obligatoire - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est obligatoire. Si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, les coûts de déplacement et main d'œuvre du service vous seront facturés.
Facultatif - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est facultative. Ces pièces sont également
conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la réparation. Toutefois, si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, l'intervention peut ou non vous être facturée, selon le type de garantie applicable à
votre produit.
REMARQUE: Certaines pièces HP ne sont pas conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la
réparation. Pour que la garantie puisse s'appliquer, HP exige que le remplacement de la pièce soit effectué
par un Mainteneur Agréé. Ces pièces sont identifiées par la mention "Non" dans le Catalogue illustré.
Les pièces CSR sont livrées le jour ouvré suivant, dans la limite des stocks disponibles et selon votre situation
géographique. Si votre situation géographique le permet et que vous demandez une livraison le jour même
ou dans les 4 heures, celle-ci vous sera facturée. Pour bénéficier d'une assistance téléphonique, appelez le
Centre d'assistance technique HP. Dans les documents envoyés avec la pièce de rechange CSR, HP précise
s'il est nécessaire de lui retourner la pièce défectueuse. Si c'est le cas, vous devez le faire dans le délai
indiqué, généralement cinq (5) jours ouvrés. La pièce et sa documentation doivent être retournées dans
l'emballage fourni. Si vous ne retournez pas la pièce défectueuse, HP se réserve le droit de vous facturer les
coûts de remplacement. Dans le cas d'une pièce CSR, HP supporte l'ensemble des frais d'expédition et de
retour, et détermine la société de courses ou le transporteur à utiliser.

Riparazione da parte del cliente
Per abbreviare i tempi di riparazione e garantire una maggiore flessibilità nella sostituzione di parti
difettose, i prodotti HP sono realizzati con numerosi componenti che possono essere riparati direttamente
dal cliente (CSR, Customer Self Repair). Se in fase di diagnostica HP (o un centro di servizi o di assistenza
HP) identifica il guasto come riparabile mediante un ricambio CSR, HP lo spedirà direttamente al cliente per
la sostituzione. Vi sono due categorie di parti CSR:
Obbligatorie – Parti che devono essere necessariamente riparate dal cliente. Se il cliente ne affida la
riparazione ad HP, deve sostenere le spese di spedizione e di manodopera per il servizio.
Opzionali – Parti la cui riparazione da parte del cliente è facoltativa. Si tratta comunque di componenti
progettati per questo scopo. Se tuttavia il cliente ne richiede la sostituzione ad HP, potrebbe dover sostenere
spese addizionali a seconda del tipo di garanzia previsto per il prodotto.
NOTA: alcuni componenti HP non sono progettati per la riparazione da parte del cliente. Per rispettare la
garanzia, HP richiede che queste parti siano sostituite da un centro di assistenza autorizzato. Tali parti sono
identificate da un "No" nel Catalogo illustrato dei componenti.
In base alla disponibilità e alla località geografica, le parti CSR vengono spedite con consegna entro il
giorno lavorativo seguente. La consegna nel giorno stesso o entro quattro ore è offerta con un supplemento
di costo solo in alcune zone. In caso di necessità si può richiedere l'assistenza telefonica di un addetto del
centro di supporto tecnico HP. Nel materiale fornito con una parte di ricambio CSR, HP specifica se il cliente
deve restituire dei componenti. Qualora sia richiesta la resa ad HP del componente difettoso, lo si deve
spedire ad HP entro un determinato periodo di tempo, generalmente cinque (5) giorni lavorativi. Il
componente difettoso deve essere restituito con la documentazione associata nell'imballo di spedizione
fornito. La mancata restituzione del componente può comportare la fatturazione del ricambio da parte di HP.
Nel caso di riparazione da parte del cliente, HP sostiene tutte le spese di spedizione e resa e sceglie il
corriere/vettore da utilizzare.
Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma CSR di HP contattare il centro di assistenza di zona. Per il
programma in Nord America fare riferimento al sito Web HP (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Customer Self Repair
HP Produkte enthalten viele CSR-Teile (Customer Self Repair), um Reparaturzeiten zu minimieren und höhere
Flexibilität beim Austausch defekter Bauteile zu ermöglichen. Wenn HP (oder ein HP Servicepartner) bei der
Diagnose feststellt, dass das Produkt mithilfe eines CSR-Teils repariert werden kann, sendet Ihnen HP dieses
Bauteil zum Austausch direkt zu. CSR-Teile werden in zwei Kategorien unterteilt:
Zwingend – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren zwingend vorgegeben ist. Wenn Sie den
Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen, werden Ihnen die Anfahrt- und Arbeitskosten für diesen
Service berechnet.
Optional – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren optional ist. Diese Teile sind auch für Customer
Self Repair ausgelegt. Wenn Sie jedoch den Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen möchten,
können bei diesem Service je nach den für Ihr Produkt vorgesehenen Garantiebedingungen zusätzliche
Kosten anfallen.
Support and other resources
105
HINWEIS: Einige Teile sind nicht für Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Um den Garantieanspruch des
Kunden zu erfüllen, muss das Teil von einem HP Servicepartner ersetzt werden. Im illustrierten Teilekatalog
sind diese Teile mit „No“ bzw. „Nein“ gekennzeichnet.
CSR-Teile werden abhängig von der Verfügbarkeit und vom Lieferziel am folgenden Geschäftstag geliefert.
Für bestimmte Standorte ist eine Lieferung am selben Tag oder innerhalb von vier Stunden gegen einen
Aufpreis verfügbar. Wenn Sie Hilfe benötigen, können Sie das HP technische Support Center anrufen und
sich von einem Mitarbeiter per Telefon helfen lassen. Den Materialien, die mit einem CSR-Ersatzteil geliefert
werden, können Sie entnehmen, ob das defekte Teil an HP zurückgeschickt werden muss. Wenn es
erforderlich ist, das defekte Teil an HP zurückzuschicken, müssen Sie dies innerhalb eines vorgegebenen
Zeitraums tun, in der Regel innerhalb von fünf (5) Geschäftstagen. Das defekte Teil muss mit der zugehörigen
Dokumentation in der Verpackung zurückgeschickt werden, die im Lieferumfang enthalten ist. Wenn Sie das
defekte Teil nicht zurückschicken, kann HP Ihnen das Ersatzteil in Rechnung stellen. Im Falle von Customer
Self Repair kommt HP für alle Kosten für die Lieferung und Rücksendung auf und bestimmt den
Kurier-/Frachtdienst.
Weitere Informationen über das HP Customer Self Repair Programm erhalten Sie von Ihrem Servicepartner
vor Ort. Informationen über das CSR-Programm in Nordamerika finden Sie auf der HP Website unter
(http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparaciones del propio cliente
Los productos de HP incluyen muchos componentes que el propio usuario puede reemplazar (Customer Self
Repair, CSR) para minimizar el tiempo de reparación y ofrecer una mayor flexibilidad a la hora de realizar
sustituciones de componentes defectuosos. Si, durante la fase de diagnóstico, HP (o los proveedores o socios
de servicio de HP) identifica que una reparación puede llevarse a cabo mediante el uso de un componente
CSR, HP le enviará dicho componente directamente para que realice su sustitución. Los componentes CSR se
clasifican en dos categorías:
•
Obligatorio: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es obligatoria. Si solicita a
HP que realice la sustitución de estos componentes, tendrá que hacerse cargo de los gastos de
desplazamiento y de mano de obra de dicho servicio.
•
Opcional: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es opcional. Estos
componentes también están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Sin embargo, si
precisa que HP realice su sustitución, puede o no conllevar costes adicionales, dependiendo del tipo de
servicio de garantía correspondiente al producto.
NOTA: Algunos componentes no están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Para que
el usuario haga valer su garantía, HP pone como condición que un proveedor de servicios autorizado
realice la sustitución de estos componentes. Dichos componentes se identifican con la palabra "No" en el
catálogo ilustrado de componentes.
Según la disponibilidad y la situación geográfica, los componentes CSR se enviarán para que lleguen a su
destino al siguiente día laborable. Si la situación geográfica lo permite, se puede solicitar la entrega en el
mismo día o en cuatro horas con un coste adicional. Si precisa asistencia técnica, puede llamar al Centro de
asistencia técnica de HP y recibirá ayuda telefónica por parte de un técnico. Con el envío de materiales
para la sustitución de componentes CSR, HP especificará si los componentes defectuosos deberán
devolverse a HP. En aquellos casos en los que sea necesario devolver algún componente a HP, deberá
hacerlo en el periodo de tiempo especificado, normalmente cinco días laborables. Los componentes
defectuosos deberán devolverse con toda la documentación relacionada y con el embalaje de envío. Si no
enviara el componente defectuoso requerido, HP podrá cobrarle por el de sustitución. En el caso de todas
Support and other resources

sustituciones que lleve a cabo el cliente, HP se hará cargo de todos los gastos de envío y devolución de
componentes y escogerá la empresa de transporte que se utilice para dicho servicio.

contacto con su proveedor de servicios local. Si está interesado en el programa para Norteamérica, visite
la página web de HP siguiente (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Customer Self Repair
Veel onderdelen in HP producten zijn door de klant zelf te repareren, waardoor de reparatieduur tot een
minimum beperkt kan blijven en de flexibiliteit in het vervangen van defecte onderdelen groter is. Deze
onderdelen worden CSR-onderdelen (Customer Self Repair) genoemd. Als HP (of een HP Service Partner) bij
de diagnose vaststelt dat de reparatie kan worden uitgevoerd met een CSR-onderdeel, verzendt HP dat
onderdeel rechtstreeks naar u, zodat u het defecte onderdeel daarmee kunt vervangen. Er zijn twee
categorieën CSR-onderdelen:
Verplicht: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant verplicht is. Als u HP verzoekt deze onderdelen
voor u te vervangen, worden u voor deze service reiskosten en arbeidsloon in rekening gebracht.
Optioneel: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant optioneel is. Ook deze onderdelen zijn ontworpen
voor reparatie door de klant. Als u echter HP verzoekt deze onderdelen voor u te vervangen, kunnen
daarvoor extra kosten in rekening worden gebracht, afhankelijk van het type garantieservice voor het
product.
OPMERKING: Sommige HP onderdelen zijn niet ontwikkeld voor reparatie door de klant. In verband met
de garantievoorwaarden moet het onderdeel door een geautoriseerde Service Partner worden vervangen.
Deze onderdelen worden in de geïllustreerde onderdelencatalogus aangemerkt met "Nee".
Afhankelijk van de leverbaarheid en de locatie worden CSR-onderdelen verzonden voor levering op de
eerstvolgende werkdag. Levering op dezelfde dag of binnen vier uur kan tegen meerkosten worden
aangeboden, indien dit mogelijk is gezien de locatie. Indien assistentie gewenst is, belt u een HP Service
Partner om via de telefoon technische ondersteuning te ontvangen. HP vermeldt in de documentatie bij het
vervangende CSR-onderdeel of het defecte onderdeel aan HP moet worden geretourneerd. Als het defecte
onderdeel aan HP moet worden teruggezonden, moet u het defecte onderdeel binnen een bepaalde
periode, gewoonlijk vijf (5) werkdagen, retourneren aan HP. Het defecte onderdeel moet met de
bijbehorende documentatie worden geretourneerd in het meegeleverde verpakkingsmateriaal. Als u het
defecte onderdeel niet terugzendt, kan HP u voor het vervangende onderdeel kosten in rekening brengen. Bij
reparatie door de klant betaalt HP alle verzendkosten voor het vervangende en geretourneerde onderdeel en
kiest HP zelf welke koerier/transportonderneming hiervoor wordt gebruikt.
Neem contact op met een Service Partner voor meer informatie over het Customer Self Repair programma
van HP. Informatie over Service Partners vindt u op de HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparo feito pelo cliente
Os produtos da HP são projetados com muitas peças para reparo feito pelo cliente (CSR) de modo a
minimizar o tempo de reparo e permitir maior flexibilidade na substituição de peças com defeito. Se,
durante o período de diagnóstico, a HP (ou fornecedores/parceiros de serviço da HP) concluir que o reparo
pode ser efetuado pelo uso de uma peça CSR, a peça de reposição será enviada diretamente ao cliente.
Existem duas categorias de peças CSR:
Obrigatória – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é obrigatório. Se desejar que a HP substitua essas peças,
serão cobradas as despesas de transporte e mão-de-obra do serviço.
Support and other resources
107
Opcional – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é opcional. Essas peças também são projetadas para o
reparo feito pelo cliente. No entanto, se desejar que a HP as substitua, pode haver ou não a cobrança de
taxa adicional, dependendo do tipo de serviço de garantia destinado ao produto.
OBSERVAÇÃO: Algumas peças da HP não são projetadas para o reparo feito pelo cliente. A fim de
cumprir a garantia do cliente, a HP exige que um técnico autorizado substitua a peça. Essas peças estão
identificadas com a marca "No" (Não), no catálogo de peças ilustrado.
Conforme a disponibilidade e o local geográfico, as peças CSR serão enviadas no primeiro dia útil após o
pedido. Onde as condições geográficas permitirem, a entrega no mesmo dia ou em quatro horas pode ser
feita mediante uma taxa adicional. Se precisar de auxílio, entre em contato com o Centro de suporte técnico
da HP para que um técnico o ajude por telefone. A HP especifica nos materiais fornecidos com a peça CSR
de reposição se a peça com defeito deve ser devolvida à HP. Nos casos em que isso for necessário, é
preciso enviar a peça com defeito à HP dentro do período determinado, normalmente cinco (5) dias úteis.
A peça com defeito deve ser enviada com a documentação correspondente no material de transporte
fornecido. Caso não o faça, a HP poderá cobrar a reposição. Para as peças de reparo feito pelo cliente, a
HP paga todas as despesas de transporte e de devolução da peça e determina a transportadora/serviço
postal a ser utilizado.
Para obter mais informações sobre o programa de reparo feito pelo cliente da HP, entre em contato com o
fornecedor de serviços local. Para o programa norte-americano, visite o site da HP
