MCFS Warranty Policy for Schools and Educational Nonprofits
Minnesota Computers for Schools (MCFS) provides a warranty for most product purchased through the program. Warranties are as follows unless otherwise noted in the order confirmation:
- Desktop systems and laptops have a one to three year warranty.
- LCD’s have a 90 day warranty.
- Printers have a 30 day warranty.
The warranty for specific product is stated on the original order confirmation form you receive at the time you place an order.
There is no warranty on laptop batteries. If you would like a battery warranty; new batteries generally run between $25-$30 and will include a one year warranty. Laptop batteries are tested and guaranteed to hold a 30 minute charge at the time of delivery. Upon delivery the buyer has 30 days to test their batteries during which time a replacement will be provided.
The warranty will cover the cost of parts and labor for hardware problems with the equipment. The warranty does not cover accidental damage such as laptops being dropped or mishandled. MCFS will repair the customer’s computer; or will replace the product with comparable equipment if needed. If a problem exists with equipment purchased from MCFS, the first step is to contact the technical staff either by phone 651-748-7916, email or fax in a request for repair form 651-747-1613.
If the equipment needs to be returned to MCFS for repair or replacement, tech support will instruct the customer on the process for sending the equipment to MCFS. Any costs associated with returning equipment is the customer’s responsibility. MCFS will either repair or replace the equipment and cover the cost to return the equipment to the customer.
The warranty is not transferable and is from the original purchase date. Please allow 2-4 weeks for repair.
