If a product is faulty on receipt (Dead on Arrival) they are generally replaced with a new unit rather than repaired. There are certain exceptions to this rule.
Products that develop a fault after use are generally repaired rather than replaced. Some manufacturers require that the end user contact them directly regarding faulty products and not the retailer. In such cases please contact Elara and we will be happy to supply you with the manufacturer's contact details. Please note that your statutory rights are not affected, if you are having problems contacting/dealing with the manufacturer, we will be happy to assist you. The quickest route is usually always for customers to contact the manufacturer directly. There are some items that require troubleshooting at the source; an example is a router with connected to an internet connection. Elara Online will not be able to do this for you.

LCD displays are made up of a set number of pixels and each pixel is made from 3 sub pixels; one Red, one Blue and one Green. Every sub-pixel is addressed by its own transistor and so the manufacture of a glass substrate is very complex. Due to the nature of the manufacturing process, occasional defects can occur. Pixel defects or failures cannot be fixed or repaired and can happen at any stage in the LCD's life. To regulate the acceptability of defects and to protect the end user, ISO have created a standard for manufacturers to follow. ISO-9241-302, 303, 305, 307:2008 recommends how many defaults are acceptable in a display before it should be replaced, within the terms & conditions of warranty. All reputable manufacturers conform to and support the ISO ISO-9241-302, 303, 305, 307:2008 standard.
