No Extended Warranties are available.

If for any reason your FARGO product fails to perform, HID Global will exchange it with a new product within the first sixty (60) days of field service as long as the card count is fewer than 2,000 cards.

* HID technical support determines all product failures.

Reviewing On-Call Express services:


When a request is received by 3:00 PM (Central Time), a loaner unit will be shipped that same day via overnight delivery. Upon receipt of the defective unit, HID depot repair cleans, repairs, tests and returns the same unit to the customer. All repaired printers are shipped via UPS ground.
Repaired printers will include a Pre-Paid Federal Express label. The FSP/ASP/End User affixes this return label to the outside of the loaner box for return shipment. If you do not receive a return label please contact Technical Support, they can also issue a call tag.

On-Call-Express services are available to FSP/ASP’s only. HID Global will not ship an On- Call-Express printer to an end-user without the involvement of an FSP/ASP (certain exceptions may apply).

Reviewing On-Call Express Terms:

Effective August 1, 2009, HID made the following process changes to the On-Call Express program for FARGO printers:

Before HID ships a loaner printer, the FSP/ASP will need to send in a purchase order referencing the RMA # of the loaner unit. If the FSP/ASP does not have payment terms set up with HID, the FSP/ASP will need to provide a valid credit card number.

If the loaner printer is not returned within 30 days of HID’s requested return date, HID will invoice the FSP/ASP’s company or bill their credit card for the value of the loaner printer, less their standard printer discount. A courtesy notification will be sent out prior to any billing. Please note that no charges are incurred as long as the loaner printer is returned to HID within the requested date.

HID Global pays all shipping charges on On-Call-Express printers. The FSP/ASP or the end user pays to ship the repair printer to HID Global. HID Global covers the return shipping of the repaired printer and ships the printer via UPS ground.
