Refurbished guarantee

30-Day Limited Warranty



We want to take the uncertainty out of buying retro tech and give you a product that goes the distance. Devices refurbished by High Fidelty Vinyl are warranted to the original purchaser to be free from defects in workmanship for a period of 30 days from the date the item was delivered (determined via tracking). 

During the warranty period, we'll repair or replace defective parts at no cost to you. Shipping charges are covered by High Fidelty Vinyl for customers in Canada. Beginning on the date the warranty-repaired item is delivered to the return address (determined via tracking), we will extend the warranty for 14 more days. After those 14 days, or after the original 30 day warranty has passed (whichever comes last), any subsequent repairs will be offered at an additional cost. 

New items (i.e. not refurbished by High Fidelty Vinyl) from third-party suppliers are not covered under this warranty.  

If you are experiencing a product defect we're sorry to hear it — but we're happy to help! Please contact us at with your order number and a brief summary of the issue to begin the warranty troubleshooting and repair process.

High Fidelty Vinyl's Response to Warranty Claim

During the warranty period, High Fidelty Vinyl shall repair or replace defective parts at no cost to the customer. Shipping charges are covered by High Fidelty Vinyl for customers in Canada. On the date the warranty-repaired item is delivered to the return address (determined via tracking), High Fidelty Vinyl will extend the original warranty for 14 additional days. After these 14 days have passed or after the original 90 day warranty has passed (whichever comes last) the warranty will be void and subsequent repairs will be at the cost of the customer.

When a Product or any of its parts are replaced, any item or parts issued as replacements become the property of the customer and the replaced Product or parts becomes the property of High Fidelty Vinyl.

If High Fidelty Vinyl deems a Product is unable to be serviced under warranty, High Fidelty Vinyl's customer service team will, at its sole discretion, offer a comparable replacement or refund for the product or service.


Making a Claim

To start a claim under warranty, first contact High Fidelty Vinyl's customer service ( High Fidelty Vinyl may require proof of purchase details (e.g. the order number or receipt), and may begin the troubleshooting process via email or phone in an attempt to diagnose potential issues and provide simple fixes able to be carried out by the customer quickly without having to send in the Product. Once sufficient information is collected, High Fidelty Vinyl's customer service team will provide the necessary details for obtaining warranty service by mail.

In returning the Product, the Product must be delivered in either its original packaging or packaging affording an equal degree of protection.

High Fidelty Vinyl will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred in transit or otherwise in connection with the return of the Product to High Fidelty Vinyl, nor will High Fidelty Vinyl be responsible for any additional items included in the package but not originally part of the Product.

Important: Do not attempt to open the Product or remove any protective caps attached to the Product.
