Optimum environment
When installing the server, select a location that meets the environmental standards described in this
section.
Space and airflow requirements
Tower server
In a tower configuration, leave at least a 7.6-cm (3-in) clearance space at the front and back of the server
for proper ventilation.
Rack server
To allow for servicing and adequate airflow, observe the following space and airflow requirements when
deciding where to install a rack:
•
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 door and expel warm air through the rear door. 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, you must install the high
airflow rack door insert [P/N 327281-B21 (42U) or P/N 157847-B21 (22U)] 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).
Setup
9
Temperature requirements
To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the system in a wellventilated, 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.
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 (UPS). 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 may 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 percent 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.
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.
Setup
10
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.
Rack warnings
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, be sure that:
• The leveling jacks are extended to the floor.
• The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.
• The stabilizing feet are attached to the rack if it is a single-rack installation.
• The racks are coupled together in multiple-rack installations.
• Only one component is extended at a time. A rack may become unstable if more than one
component is extended for any reason.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or equipment damage when unloading a
rack:
• At least two people are needed to safely unload the rack from the pallet. An empty 42U
rack can weigh as much as 115 kg (253 lb), can stand more than 2.1 m (7 ft) tall, and
may become unstable when being moved on its casters.
• Never stand in front of the rack when it is rolling down the ramp from the pallet. Always
handle the rack from both sides.

Memory options
IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to mix
these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
The memory subsystem in this server can support RDIMMs or UDIMMs. Both types are referred to as
DIMMs when the information applies to both types. When specified as 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 (DDR-1333) DIMMs operating at 1333 and 1066 MHz
•
Quad-rank PC3-8500 (DDR-1067) DIMMs operating at 1066 MHz
Hardware options installation
18
Depending on the processor model, the number of DIMMs installed, and whether UDIMMs or RDIMMs
are installed, the memory clock speed may be reduced to 1066 or 800 MHz. For more information on
the effect of DIMM slot population, see "General DIMM slot population guidelines (on page 21)."
Memory subsystem architecture
The memory subsystem in this server is divided into channels. Each processor supports three channels,
and each channel supports two DIMM slots, as shown in the following table.

This multi-channel architecture provides enhanced performance in Advanced ECC mode. This architecture
also enables the Mirrored Memory and Lockstep memory modes. This server supports both Registered
PC3 DIMMs (RDIMMs) and Unbuffered DIMMs (UDIMMs).
DIMM slots in this server are identified by number and by letter. Letters identify the slots to populate for
specific AMP modes. Slot numbers are reported by ROM messages during boot and for error reporting.
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 2-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM would be 4GB, and a quad-rank DIMM would be 8-GB.
DIMM identification
IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to mix
these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
Hardware options installation
19
The memory subsystem may be populated with either RDIMMs or UDIMMs, but mixing the two types is not
supported. To determine DIMM characteristics, use the label attached to the DIMM and the following
illustration and table.

•
Advanced ECC—provides the greatest memory capacity for a given DIMM size, while providing up
to 8-bit error correction, depending on the specific DIMM type. This mode is the default option for
this server.
•
Lockstep—provides enhanced protection while making all installed memory available to the
operating system. The server can continue to function if a single- or mulit-bit memory failure within a
single DRAM device occurs.
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 ("ROM-Based Setup Utility" on page 30)."

UDIMM maximum memory configurations
The server supports a maximum of 12 GB with one processor and 24 GB with two processors using 2-GB
single- or dual-rank UDIMMs.
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. The server provides
notification that correctable error events have exceeded a pre-defined threshold rate.
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.
Lockstep mode uses channel 1 and channel 2. Channel 3 is not populated. Because channel 3 cannot be
populated when using Lockstep mode, the maximum memory capacity is lower than Advanced ECC
mode. Memory performance with Advanced ECC is also slightly higher.
General DIMM slot population guidelines
Observe the following guidelines for all AMP modes:
•
Populate DIMM slots for a processor only if the processor is installed.
•
To maximize performance in multi-processor configurations, distribute the total memory capacity
between all processors as evenly as possible.
•
Do not mix Unbuffered and Registered PC3 DIMMs.
•
Each channel supports up to two Unbuffered DIMMs.
Hardware options installation
21
•
If quad-rank DIMMs are installed for a processor, a maximum of two DIMMs can be installed on
each channel for that processor.
If a channel contains quad-rank DIMMs, the quad-rank DIMM must be installed first on that channel.
DIMM speeds are supported as indicated in the following table.

•
UDIMM: Sequentially in alphabetical order (A through F).
Lockstep Memory population guidelines
For Lockstep memory mode configurations, observe the following guidelines:
•
Observe the general DIMM slot population guidelines (on page 21).
•
Always install DIMMs in channels 1 and 2 for each installed processor.
•
Do not install DIMMs in channel 3 for any processor.
•

74).
Operating system updates
Use care when applying operating system updates (Service Packs, hotfixes, and patches). Before
updating the operating system, read the release notes for each update. If you do not require specific fixes
from the update, it is recommended that you do not apply the updates. Some updates overwrite files
specific to HP.
If you decide to apply an operating system update:
1.
Perform a full system backup.
2.
Apply the operating system update, using the instructions provided.
3.
Install the current drivers.
If you apply the update and have problems, locate files to correct the problems on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/support).
Restoring to a backed-up version
If you recently upgraded the operating system or software and cannot resolve the problem, you can try
restoring a previously saved version of the system. Before restoring the backup, make a backup of the
current system. If restoring the previous system does not correct the problem, you can restore the current
set to be sure you do not lose additional functionality.
Refer to the documentation provided with the backup software.
Troubleshooting 74
When to reconfigure or reload software
If all other options have not resolved the problem, consider reconfiguring the system. Before you take this
step:
1.
Weigh the projected downtime of a software reload against the time spent troubleshooting
intermittent problems. It may be advantageous to start over by removing and reinstalling the problem
software.
2.
Be sure the server has adequate resources (processor speed, hard drive space, and memory) for the
software.
3.
Be sure the server ROM is current and the configuration is correct.
4.
Be sure you have printed records of all troubleshooting information you have collected to this point.
5.
Be sure you have two good backups before you start. Test the backups using a backup utility.
6.
Check the operating system and application software resources to be sure you have the latest
information.
7.
If the last-known functioning configuration does not work, try to recover the system with operating
system recovery software:
o
Microsoft® operating systems:

Firmware maintenance
HP has developed technologies to help ensure that HP servers provide maximum uptime with minimal
maintenance. Many of these technologies also reduce server management efforts, enabling administrators
to work on issues and resolve problems without taking servers offline.
The process of updating system or option firmware is referred to as a flash process or flashing the ROM.
A firmware or ROM flash removes the existing version of firmware from the ROM and replaces it with a
more recent version.
Update the firmware to do the following:
•
Support new hardware, such as a processor revision
•
Support new features
•
Correct problems in a previous firmware version
Without the correct firmware version, the server and hardware options may not function properly.
Types of ROM
Types of ROMs include:
•
System ROM (on page 76)
•
Option ROMs (on page 77)
System ROM
All ProLiant servers have a system ROM.
A system reboot is required for a ROM upgrade to take effect. For disaster recovery or ROM downgrade
purposes, backups of the most current ROM image are available in either redundant ROM or a ROM
backup.
Troubleshooting 76
Automatic backup
A backup copy of the ROM image existing on the target server is made in the ROM image backup
subdirectory:
\CPQSYSTEM\FWBACKUP\SYSTEM
For additional information, see the HP Online ROM Flash User Guide on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/support/smartstart/documentation).
Option ROMs
Types of option ROMs include:
•
Array controller ROMs
•
Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) ROMs
•
Hard drive ROMs
ROMPaq utility diskette or USB drive key
The bootable ROMPaq diskette or USB drive key contains all the necessary system files, option ROM
image files, and the configuration files required to upgrade the ROM firmware.
This procedure is most effective when flashing the ROM on a small number of servers located in close
proximity.
To flash the ROM using ROMPaq:
1.
Download the system ROMPaq utility diskette or USB drive key for each target server. ROMPaq
downloads are available on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/support).
2.
Shut down each target server, and then reboot using the correct ROMPaq diskette or USB drive key
for that server.
3.
Follow the interactive session in the ROMPaq utility, and then select the devices to be flashed.
4.
After the ROMPaq utility flashes the ROM for the selected devices, cycle power manually to reboot
the system back into the operating system.
Option ROMPaqs have been retired as an upgrade delivery method for storage options. Firmware
upgrades for storage options are now delivered using Smart Components and Smart Component
deployment utilities.
For additional information about the ROMPaq utility, see the server documentation or the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/support).

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 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.
Technical support 90
•
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.
Technical support 92
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 CSRErsatzteil 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
Technical support 93
el caso de todas 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.

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:
Technical support 94
•
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.
•
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
