Glorystar Group (GS) warrants its products will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the duration of the warranty, which is 24 months from the date of invoice. The warranty status of a GS product is determined by checking the serial number of the product or component. Products with longer warranty periods will be separately mentioned on offer and order acknowledgement.
A product is DOA (Dead on Arrival) if it is defective or does not operate according to the product specification within 10 days of arrival. DOA are collected by Glory star unless agreed otherwise in writing.
Repair Time/Turnaround Time (TAT)
RMA (Return Material Authorization)
GS will normally repair a defect item and have it ready for shipment within 14 working days after receipt of the defect system by GS. If the quantity of defect item exceeds this Turnaround time, GS will instantly inform customer. For larger lots, Glory Star will confirm the repair time separately.
Void Warranty Conditions
The product warranty covers only those defects which arise as a result of normal use of the product and do NOT apply to any:
Service required as a result of improper installation, including incorrect or insufficient AC supply.
Damaged caused by other system components
Damage (including cosmetic damage), failure, loss or personal injury due to misuse, abuse, negligence, improper maintenance or storage, or to acts of nature or other causes beyond our control. ( Causes beyond our control include but are not limited to lightning strike, power surges, power outages and water damage)
Product where the original factory serial number has been removed, defaced or changed in any way
Product has been explicitly or implicitly modified, tampered, altered or repaired in any way by anybody other than qualified technical staff of GS
The following procedure to return goods to GS for repair is used by GS:
Send an RMA request via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org including contact information and model number, serial number, invoice detail and adequate failure description of each defect product.
Glory Star sends an RMA form to customer to fill in. GS determines if product is within warranty or out of warranty.
Upon approval, customer sends the defect item to Glory Star (Flat D, 5/F, Excelsior Building, 364 Nathan Rd., Kowloon, H.K) with the following rules:
Each item should be well packed in the original or equivalent packaging to minimize the chance of damage during transportation. GS will not accept liability of any product damaged during transportation due to inadequate or insufficient packaging.
If the packaging is damaged in such a way that, according to GS, there is a fair chance that the inside product could be reasonably damaged too, GS will refuse the returned item. If Glory Star decides to renew the packaging to ensure safe shipping, this new packaging will be invoice to the customer.
