    Terms and Conditions

    To obtain copies of the Lenovo Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or Lenovo.  
     

    Warranty period for machine types 6072 and 6075 

    • System hardware - Three years on side on parts and labor 2BD
    WARRANTY PERIOD FOR MACHINE TYPES 6066 and 6069

    • System hardware - Three years carry-in on part and labor

    Optional Lenovo features initially installed in a Lenovo system carry the same warranty period as the system. If installed after the initial system installation, they carry the balance of the system warranty or the optional feature warranty, whichever is greater.  

    Warranty service  If required, your service provider provides repair or exchange service depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. A service technician will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures. Scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call and is subject to parts availability. Service levels are response time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations, additional charges may apply outside your service providers normal service area, contact your local service provider representative or your reseller for country- and location-specific information.  

    Customer replaceable unit (CRU) service  Lenovo will ship CRUs to you for you to install, Tier 1 CRUs are easy to install whereas Tier 2 CRUs require some technical skill and tools. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from Lenovo at any time on your request. You may request that a service provider install CRUs, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service designated for your machine. Lenovo specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if Lenovo does not receive the defective CRU within 30 days of your receipt of the replacement.  

    On-site service  Your service provider will either repair or exchange the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose. For some machines, certain repairs may require sending the machine to a designated service center.  
     

    International Warranty Service (IWS)  IWS is available during the warranty period to customers who travel or relocate to countries where their computer is sold and serviced by a service provider authorized to perform warranty service. Eligible Lenovo computers are identified by their four-digit machine type.  

    You can obtain IWS through the method of service, such as CRU, depot, carry-in or on-site, provided in the servicing country. Service methods and procedures vary by country, and some service or parts may not be available in all countries. Service centers in certain countries may not be able to service all models of a particular machine type. In addition, some countries may have fees and restrictions that apply at the time of service.  

    Note: Due to the earth's magnetic field, CRT monitors are manufactured to work in northern, southern, and equatorial regions of the earth and may not produce a satisfactory image when moved between them. Any required adjustment (if possible) is not covered under IWS and may be subject to a chargeable action. The magnetic field does not affect flat-panel LCD monitors and ThinkPad LCD displays.  

    Licensing  Programs included with this product are licensed under the terms and conditions of the license agreements that are shipped with the system.
