Question about PNY Optima 1GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SoDIMM Notebook Memory

PNY Does not Honor ''Lifetime Warranty'' for memory

I have purchased PNY laptop DDR333 memory and it is failing. For warranty, PNY has you register the product to receive warranty, however when registering if some unknown period of time has been exceeded since original purchase, PNY does not honor the so called Lifetime Warranty.

PNY is no longer a repuitable company to buy anything from. PNY sells false advertizing and out right lies.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Ram installed about 2 years ago I think 2x4gb ddr3 sodimms
Failing after a year started as blue screens and not recognized short time after.
Without receipt = no warranty
Got it as a gift = no warranty
Oem = no warranty
Purchase with gift card and misplace receipt = no warranty
House burn down with all paperwork = no warranty
Not good at keeping records =- no warranty
I have been in contact with PNY and can you tell they have told me without the receipt they can do nothing for me?
COMPLETE WAISTE of the word warranty.
and yes there support people get smart with you and quote other companies warranties and state see they do they same thing!
Why even have a lifetime warranty, just call it a "prove it" warranty?

No pop ,,bought off ebay how register for lifetime maps

Try to get, from the eBay seller, any/all PoP document, etc. If you have that, you can register your device on TomTom website, and you'll be the first owner ... with all the privileges ... including latest map, TomTom Support, warranty, etc. If you can't get all the PoP documentation, you can still register your GPS device on the TomTom website. However, as a "second" owner, you may not get all of the "privileges" ... e.g. warranty, etc. (unless the eBay seller is an authorized TomTom distributor/seller.). You may get the lifetime map (feature) ... because that is usually associated with the specific TomTom device (serial no, etc.).

Where can I get a replacement motor? Was the motor guaranteed for the life of the fan when I bought it in 2001?

Most small home appliances come with, at most a one-to-three year warranty. This is more because the parts to repair will most likely be obsolete by the time the unit fails. This fan made it for 14 years - everyone should be so lucky. Besides, unless you registered the product's warranty at the time of purchase, it is unlikely that the manufacturer would honor any claim. And a lifetime warranty is for the lifetime of the owner/user, not the device. Otherwise, when the device breaks (dies), so would the warranty.

Do i have to register my mp4 player

You don't have to do anything, as the player is yours. The manufacturer offers you a method of registering your player as a means to honor the warranty. They also get to offer you future sales of other products. If the warranty is for a year or more I would say register it as saving the receipt for that long to prove your purchase is often not possible.

I just bought a mini MSI pc from a friend..can I register it in my name..thanks

You can register the computer in your name here

Here is the information on the warranty

The computer should have been registered after it was purchased. It has a 1 year warranty from the date of purchase and the warranty is non-transferrable. If your friend registered it in his name then the 1 year warranty is tied to him and cannot be transferred to you. If you re-register the computer in your name you will not qualify for any warranty work. I suggest you leave it in your friend's name(if he is a good friend) and if there is any problems with the computer have him contact MSI for warranty work. If the computer is over a year old then it is past the warranty date anyways(unless he got an extended warranty) so re-registering the computer in your name would allow for e-mail updates from MSI and any recall information for your computer.

No Lcd and no viewfinder. Pics taken are black

manmufacturers are bound to honor warranty as long as you have proof of purchase. Try taking it back to the store yopu bought from as they would have a record of the transaction.

If all else fails claim it on insurance policy as being dropped

I ve a nvidia 7300 gt graphic card, i bought it on dec 06 and i am facing sum problem. anyone known about warranty covered on it.



BFG Technologies warrants to the original purchaser of the graphics card included in this package ("Product") that the Product will be free from defects in material or workmanship for as long as the original purchaser (residing in the United States or Canada) owns the product, when given normal wear and proper usage. For original purchasers residing in areas outside the USA or Canada, the limited warranty for graphic cards shall be for a period of ten (10) years from the date of purchase.

In connection with such Limited Lifetime or Ten Year Warranty, all BFG graphics cards introduced on or after February 21, 2008 must be registered on within thirty (30) calendar days of the original purchase date to activate the limited lifetime warranty or limited ten (10) year warranty. Products not properly registered will be covered from the date of purchase by a two (2) year warranty in Europe, and a one (1) year limited warranty in the U.S. and other countries. Proper registration includes submitting proof of purchase to BFG.

This warranty is VOID if the product:
  • Has evidence of the serial number sticker being altered, removed, replaced, or defaced.

With Dell, as long as you are the registered owner of the machine, they will honor the warranty. If you haven't registered the machine into your name yet, follow the link bellow. It's simple and takes about two minutes. Then you can contact Dell support about your warranty and fixing the machine.
