product requires service. If service is needed, Epson will,
at its option, exchange or repair the product without
charge for parts or labor. If Epson authorizes an

you use an address in the United States, Canada, or
Puerto Rico. Shipments to other locations will be made
freight collect. You are responsible for securely

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

period of your original product covered by this limited
warranty.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty

service from such use will not be covered under this
warranty. This warranty is not transferable. This
warranty does not cover damage to the Epson product
caused by parts or supplies not manufactured,
distributed or certified by Epson. This warranty does not
cover third party parts, components, or peripheral
devices added to the Epson product after its shipment

service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label
or serial number be removed or 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
