Obtaining Service. If you experience problems with your Printer during the applicable warranty period, contact Roland DGA's Service Department by telephone at (866) 296-4025 or email at Service@rolanddga.com.

When contacting Roland DGA's Service Department, please be prepared to provide the service technician with the model and serial number of your product, the name and address of the dealer from whom you purchased the product, and the date of purchase.

Warranty Service Options. Roland DGA will provide warranty service of your Printer through one or more of the following options:

On-Site Service. If Roland DGA determines that the repair of your Printer is eligible for On-Site Service and you are within Roland DGA's on-site service territory, a Roland DGA Authorized Servicer will be contacted to make the repair at your facility. If you are outside Roland DGA's on-site service territory, warranty services will be performed at your facility only upon prior agreement; you may be required to pay travel expenses and other applicable expenses for such services. Roland DGA may also elect to ship repair parts to your location which are to be used solely by the on-site servicer dispatched by Roland DGA. Roland DGA's shipment of repair parts does not imply that replacement is required. Once service is complete, You will return any unused repair parts to Roland DGA. Roland DGA will pay for shipping to and from your location if all instructions regarding the method of packaging and shipping the returned repair parts are followed.


In order to obtain on-site service, you will be required to provide: access to the product; electricity and internet access; a safe and hygienic working environment; an environment that is free from violence, discrimination and harassment; and have an adult present at all times while a servicing technician is on-site.


On-Site Services will be provided during 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday, but may vary with local business practices. On-site service provided outside these hours is not covered; but if available, will be billed at prevailing labor rates and trip charges based on time of day, day of week and geographic zone.


Right to Change Service. Roland DGA reserves the right to change the method by which Roland DGA may provide warranty service to You, and your Roland DG Product's eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available in the territory or country where service is requested. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to territory or country. You may be responsible for shipping and handling charges if the Roland DG Product cannot be serviced in the territory or country it is in. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, Roland DGA may repair or replace Roland DG Products and parts with comparable Roland DG Products and parts that comply with local standards.
