Registering your Sharp product
Products with registration cards enclosed can be registered by post.
Problems on first use of your product
If you are unhappy with the initial results it may well be that the product has not been set up correctly, so please telephone us for operational advice (See Other service arrangements below for the relevant number).
If you find there are any items missing, please contact your retailer immediately so they can obtain free replacements.
Finally in the unlikely event of the product being faulty or damaged as new, please contact your retailer for a replacement. However, if you prefer a repair, please read on.
Replacements or refunds
Our guarantee mainly provides for the repair only of a product (see Other service arrangements for details). Naturally we will consider a replacement if our service centres are unable to guarantee an effective repair. However we cannot assist with refunds at all unless a product was purchased direct from us. Otherwise any request for replacement or refund must be pursued with the original retailer.
Repairs outside guarantee
Once the guarantee has expired you can take your product anywhere for repair. However the service centres we use within guarantee receive support from Sharp and will have more experience than most service companies. Therefore please try the numbers below in the first instance. Please also note we have negotiated special rates with Sharpserv for repairs outside guarantee.
Spare parts, accessories, manuals, drivers and downloads
Replacement spare parts may be obtained from our parts distributors.
Replacement accessories and consumables may also be purchased from our parts distributors, however many accessories are available to purchase on line.
Replacement manuals can also be ordered from our parts distributors. However downloadable copies of most recent manuals are available here.
Drivers and software downloads for many recent products are available here.
Once our guarantee has expired any complaints should normally be referred to the original retailer as per your statutory rights. However we are always sympathetic to any customer who has a genuine grievance about a Sharp product or service and would welcome an email.
