Printer Warranties and Service Agreements


Printer Warranties

The use of A Vaughan I.T compatible print consumables does not affect or in validate any printerwarranties or service agreements. This is a position supported by printer manufacturers such as HP and backed by consumer law worldwide.

It is a common misconception within the printer consumable industry that the use of any brand other than OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) affects the printer warranty.

It is in the OEM’s financial interest for consumers to buy OEM cartridges; however it is the consumer right to choose their own supply sources. It is illegal for a printer manufacturer to require you to use any particular brand of supplies. This is commonly known as the “antitying” provision because it prevents a manufacturer from “tying” its warranty to the use of specific products. Section 2302(c) of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (See below):

A printer cartridge issue is the responsibility of the cartridge supplier. Any other printer issue that occurs during the term of the consumer’s warranty or service agreement are covered by the consumer’s warranty. This is a fact acknowledged

by HP (See below).


How Does This Affects The Consumer?

The use of A Vaughan I.T compatible print consumables does not void consumer printer warranties. The consumer is free to choose a cartridge supplier based on price, quality and service.

HP Statement:

HP LaserJet and Colour LaserJet Printer Families - Use of Non-HP Print Cartridges “Non-HP print cartridges include new, re-manufactured, and refilled print cartridges from

other vendors. The use of non-HP print cartridges does not affect either the warranty or any maintenance contract purchased from Hewlett-Packard”

Consumer Law:



Warranty Improvement Act United States Code Annotated Title 15 Commerce and Trade


Chapter 50 Consumer Product Warranties 15 Section 2302 http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/buspubs/warranty.htm

(c) No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer’s using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this subsection may be waived by the Commission if:

1.   The warrantor satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with the warranted product, and

2.   The Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest.

China:Law of the People’s Republic of China Protecting Consumers’ Rights and Interests

Article 9: “Consumers are entitled to choose their own commodities or services

Article 11: “Consumers enjoy the right to receive compensation in accordance with the law for personal and property damages incurred as a result of the purchase and use of commodities or receipt of service.

 Service & Maintenance Agreements

A common question among our customers is, will using non OEM cartridges void or effect my service or maintenance agreement?

The use of non OEM cartridges should not invalidate or void your service or maintenance agreement. HP makes this fact clear in their statement on the use of non HP cartridges. Consumer law in America makes clear that cancelling or voiding service or maintenance agreements because of the use of non OEM parts is in violation of antitrust laws.

The U.S. Supreme Court (IBM vs. The United States) held that IBM could not threaten customers with termination of their data processing equipment leases just because they did not use supplies manufactured by IBM. Such practice constituted a "tying agreement" and was found to be to violation of the Sherman and Clayton Antitrust Law.

In late 2008, a German printer maintenance company refused to honour the regular warranty of a printer, claiming that “non-OEM cartridges were used and that this usage had rendered the warranty on the printer void”.

ETIRA (European Toner & Ink Remanufacturers Association) informed all parties involved that in accordance with EU and national law, a company cannot simply argue that the warranty is void only because non-OEM cartridges were used: there must be clear and undisputed proof that the malfunction was directly caused by the non-OEM cartridge. If this proof cannot be provided, the warranty stands as normal.

This illegal practice of refusing to honour the warranty simply because of the use of non- OEM cartridges is a permanent nuisance in our industry. Indeed, several OEM brands (HP, Brother) have published clear statements, even on the internet, that the printer warranty is not void simply because non-OEM cartridges are used. This argument is then to be used when dealing with maintenance firms.


In summary

The consumer is free to choose which supplies they use. They cannot be forced to buy a particular brand. Warranties and service agreements cannot be voided simply by using non OEM product. The manufacturer must prove that the printer failed as a direct result of the use of non-OEM cartridges, which if you're using high quality compatibles, should not happen. It's also worthwhile to note that even if your printer is damaged by a non-OEM cartridge; all other aspects of the warranty should remain unaffected and we as the supplier of the cartridges will cover the repair or replacement.
