    7. Warranty Service Exclusions.

    Warranty services are excluded for issues for which Fujitsu is not responsible including but not limited to;
    • Missing parts, accessories, supplies, consumables and expendable items, or problems caused by those items
    identified as being the user’s responsibility in the Periodic Routine Maintenance chapter of the User’s   Manual.

    • Any other damage, whether accidental or deliberate and any causes other than normal use.

    Fujitsu reserve the right to apply charges for callouts, repairs and/or replacements that are not covered by the
    warranty.

    8. Cleaning & Daily Care.

    To maintain optimum image quality and feeding performance, it is necessary for the scanner operator to clean the product regularly, using the approved cleaning materials and guidelines outlined in the operator’s guide. The Warranty does not cover image quality issues or feeding issues that are attributable to cleaning & daily care. In such instances, Fujitsu reserves the right to apply charges for the service.

    9. Consumable Items.

    To maintain optimum performance of your Fujitsu product, consumable kits will need to be purchased to replace consumables that become exhausted through normal use. Fitting of replacement consumables is the responsibility of the customer. Guidelines on how to fit consumables are contained in the operator’s guide. The Warranty does not cover the replacement or the fitting of consumables. Replacement consumable kits can be sourced from your point of purchase and we recommend that customers always have a spare set on hand for continuity of operation.

    10. Periodic Maintenance.

    During the life of your scanner product, periodic maintenance (preventative maintenance) by a Qualified Service Technician may be required to ensure continuous scanning operation. Required maintenance frequency varies depending on use. Heavy users or users scanning high ratio’s of non-standard
    paper types (e.g. Carbonless papers – otherwise known as “NCR paper”, dyed papers, very rough grade dusty papers or other chemically treated papers) will require maintenance more frequently as these papers typically leave large amounts of residues and dust. These residues and dust deposits can downgrade the performance of the product over time if not removed.

    Good indications that your scanner requires maintenance include:
    • Sensor alarms/errors (dust build-up preventing sensors from operating).
    • Persistent paper jams despite cleaning and consumable change (residue build-up on rollers or dust inside
    sensors).
    • Image quality issues such as lines down image or other artefacts (dust and/or residues on glass or inside
    optical units).
    • Unusual ‘Grinding’ or ‘knocking ‘noises (severe build-up of residues and dust/toner on rollers and moving
    parts).

    For best performance with standard paper types (80 gsm A4 Fax copier/paper) and providing correct operation and care of the product is performed (as described in the operators guide), we recommend maintenance intervals of:
    Customers can purchase Preventative Maintenance in packs of 1,2 and 3 visits as required, depending on their daily scan volumes.

    11. Limitation of Liability.

    Except in the case of death or personal injury caused by Fujitsu’s negligence, Fujitsu’s liability for damages of any kind will be limited to the price paid for the product(s), its repair or replacement. In no event will Fujitsu be liable for any loss, damage, costs or expenses of any nature whatsoever of any indirect or
