FlexRadio Service and Repair

Your Complete Service and Repair Facility for all FlexRadio Products

Occasionally your FlexRadio Systems' software defined radio or accessory may need service to keep it in top performing condition.  The FlexRadio Systems Service and Repair Department provides warranty and non-warranty board level repair for all FlexRadio Systems' products.

FlexRadio Service and Repair Guidelines

Before sending in your transceiver for service, it is recommended that you review the Troubleshooting section in the appropriate User's Manual to make sure that your problem is not easily resolved.  If you still have an issue, submit a request for support via the FlexRadio HelpDesk.  Once you are assigned a incident or ticket number, one of our Technical Support Engineers will determine if the problem your radio is experiencing requires service or repair and will issue you an RMA (Return Material Authorization) number which is required for all repair services.  

Warranty and Non-Warranty Repairs:
Before shipping a FlexRadio product to a FlexRadio Systems authorized service center, you may contact the Service and Repair Department to get an estimate of the service fees for out of warranty products. For either warranty or non-warranty repairs, you must open a FlexRadio HelpDesk ticket for service and have the issue pre-qualified before being issued a RMA number.

All products being sent in for service requires that you fill out a Hardware Repair Worksheet for each product and include it in the shipping container.  Make sure to include the RMA number on the Hardware Repair Worksheet.

If you do not fill out a Hardware Repair Worksheet, fail to get an RMA number and/or leave required information incomplete, this will significantly delay getting your product back to you in a timely manner.  Please be as detailed as possible in the description of your problem and/or how to reproduce it.  Also, if you have performed any modifications on out of warranty products, please describe those too in detail so that the repair technicians can better diagnose your issue.

Repair Turn Around Time and Bench Rates:
Turn around time for warranty service is estimated at approximately two weeks.  Non-warranty service may take a little longer since in warranty items have priority.  Discontinued or products out of production have the lowest repair priority.  All repair turnaround times are estimates and are subject to change due to variations in work load.

The current bench rate for service and repair at the Austin facility is $85 per hour.  All out of warranty products will incur a minimum one (1) hour of service bench time for testing, analysis and re-calibration of your products to determine the problem root cause.  Any time from the required 1 hour of bench time remaining after troubleshooting and calibration is complete will be applied to any additional repair services if needed.
