Inspection:
Only an inspection for checking whether the product operates normally is conducted.
Repair:
After inspection, if it is determined that a failure occurred, a repair is performed.
When you cancel repair after our inspection, only a charge for inspection will be made.

  • For any inquiries about a detailed fee, contact your local Renesas Electronics sales office or distributor.
  • If replacement is cheaper than repair, we might recommend you to buy a replacement.
