Warranty and service

As a general outline devices are serviced only during the warranty period. Warranty policies of all the IT devices are shown below and guides for servicing the devices.

Taking the device to warranty repair

The easiest way of getting the faulty device to warranty repair is done by contacting Aalto IT Servicedesk. IT Servicedesk checks if the fault can be fixed independently and, if needed, takes the device for manufacturers service. At the Servicedesk you can also ask for backup devices for a short-term loan.

IT Service Desk contact information and service hours

IT End User Support is a contact point to the users of the Aalto University IT who are in need of help and information. There are local service desks in every campus. You can ask for help by email, telephone or visiting the service desk during opening hours.

IT Service Desk

The easiest way of getting the faulty device to warranty repair is done by contacting Aalto IT Servicedesk. Alternatively you can also make a service call by yourselves. You can find vendor spesific instructions below.

Warranty periods

Device service is most profitable during the warranty period. As a general outline devices are serviced only during the warranty period. After the warranty period there should be very powerful reasons to service a faulty device. Usually it is more economical to replace faulty devices after the warranty has ended, usually fixing a faulty phone costs as much as a new mobile phone.

Warranty does not cover devices with accidental faults (Water damage, dropped devices...).

If the warranty does not cover the servicing the unit bears the costs.
