Standard Guarantee

Your Roland machine comes with a standard one-year guarantee. Consumables are not included in this guarantee.

Below you will find the details of the standard guarantee. In the text we have abbreviated Roland DG Benelux to "RDG" and Roland DG Authorised Service Centres to "RASC".
 

Start and duration of the guarantee

The guarantee period starts on the day that the authorised Roland dealer installs the machine. Either you or your dealer enters the proof of this installation on myRoland within 30 days of purchase.

 

Content of the guarantee

The guarantee covers the repair of the machine should there be a defect in the material or the finish during normal - as specified by the manufacturer -use and maintenance (see user manual).

Repairs includes solving (either by replacing the faulty parts or not) the problems hampering the normal functioning of the appliance (see product specifications).

During the guarantee period RDG or RASC will change any spare parts that have manufacturing defects.
RDG agrees to replace any parts that reveal hidden defects at any time during the guarantee period.

RDG offers three months' guarantee on repairs and parts if these are directly the result of manufacturing defects.

 

Parts that are worn or aged

Parts that are worn or aged as a result of use are not covered by the guarantee. Examples of consumables are cutting knives, wipers and print heads.

 

Response time and execution

RDG and RASC agree to render your appliance operational as quickly as possible.

For on-site repairs the client should ensure that the necessary provisions and facilities as well as sufficient space to work are provided for the RDG or RASC technician to be able to carry out the repairs.

 

Call-out charges and working hours

RDG and RASC will not charge for hours spent on repairs during the guarantee period. They will charge for hours spent on maintenance work however as well as the consumables that are replaced.
Call-out charges during this guarantee period are covered if the intervention is a direct result of a problem caused by a manufacturing defect or problem. In all other instances a call-out fee will be charged e.g. for maintenance work.
