A Product is deemed to be Dead on Arrival ("DOA") if it fails to function according to its specifications either on set-up by the Buyer or within 30 days of its purchase date. The time period for calculating DOA commences two working days after delivery of a Buyer's Order.

If the Buyer believes that a Product is DOA, they must contact Epson technical support http://tech.epson.co.nz/contact/ report the DOA status and discuss the fault. If Epson considers the Product to be DOA, it will issue a (RMA) number and will send a DOA label, consignment note and return instructions to the Buyer.

Epson will pay the freight cost associated with the return of a DOA Product, provided that the Buyer uses the Epson nominated freight carrier. Epson will deliver a replacement Product to the Buyer promptly upon receipt of a Product that it considers to be DOA.
