How are refurbished computers manufactured?
Factory-refurbished products from HP are thoroughly tested by certified HP technicians to make sure they're in proper working order. If a model fails testing, HP determines cause and replaces any failed components. If a model contains a component with a known failure rate, the component is automatically discarded. Then, refurbished models are put through a series of mechanical and electrical stress tests, new software BIOS are downloaded, a final inspection, cleaning and re-packaging. Most often, refurbished products are indistinguishable from their equivalent counterparts, though some may have cosmetic blemishes or scratches.
are refurbished printers re-manufactured?
HP factory refurbished
printers are fully tested
by certified HP technicians and updated into like-new condition. Since
only refurbish printers with less than 10% usage and because we adhere
same cosmetic standards as new printers, the HP warranty for
printers are the same as new. All accessories including new Ink and/or
cartridges are included in the box.
Where do refurbished products come from?
Factory-refurbished products from HP are clean, fully-functional models from customer returns (often unopened), cancelled orders, overstocks and demo returns. This is not product that's been in use over a long period of time or product returns from warranty service work.
HP offers a 30-day return on new computers, and inevitably, some are returned during that period because the customer didn't like the keyboard, didn't like the color, and so on. All such products have to go through HP's refurbishing process, and they cannot be represented as new products. In many cases, a refurbished PC from HP may never have been used, and could be a system that was returned because newer models took their place, a cancelled order, or simply because the packaging was marred.
What is the return policy?
Customers who wish to return or exchange product must obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) by contacting a HP eBay store representative at 1-877-471-9656 prior to shipment. RMAs must be requested within 10 days of product delivery date. In most cases, shipping costs for returning product back to HP will be paid by the customer; final determination is based on the reason for the return. Original shipping and handling charges also may not be refunded to the customer; final determination is based on the reason for the return.
