Warranty

The company provides the following warranties on its products within the UK.

  • A standard 3-year free warranty covering hardware failure but excludes accidental damage or user error.
  • Free lifetime telephone support.

Any suspected hardware failure should be reported to Screenco first. Screenco will then provide telephone technical support to determine hardware failure; hardware failure must be confirmed by Screenco.

All screen sizes up to and including 55” are covered by a swap-out or collect and return service. Once hardware failure has been determined by Screenco™ the screen must be repackaged using the original packaging. At this point Screenco at their discretion, will either: a) arrange for collection of the faulty screen by a courier service, then once the screen is back with Screenco it will either be repaired or replaced with a new unit, or b) a replacement screen will be sent out and a courier service will be used to collect the faulty screen. All deliveries and collections will be at the cost of Screenco. If the screen is not packaged correctly in its original packaging no liability will be taken by Screenco if the product is damaged during transit. If the screen is returned in full working order, no liability will be taken by Screenco and any costs incurred will be passed on to the customer.

Screen sizes above 55” and exclusive of 55” and freestanding products are covered by an on-site service. This technical support service is free and covered under the warranty period for genuine failures. Where no genuine failure has occurred a call out charge of at least  £250+ VAT is payable for each visit.

Repairs will be carried out as effectively as possible noting the following:

  • For customised or out of stock items the turnaround period is dependent upon factors such as, but not limited to, availability, production and shipping.

For overseas warranty. Once hardware failure has been determined by Screenco over the phone, replacement parts along with an instructional guide will be sent to the client at the cost of Screenco. If the client does not have the facility to repair the product and no local repair agents can be found the product should be repackaged using it’s original packaging and returned to our factory in China (or another specified location) at their cost. The product will then be repaired and sent back to the Client at the cost of Screenco.
