From time to time it may be
necessary to ship your Casablanca unit to us for repairs or hardware
upgrades. When you do, you will be taken care of by our Service Department,
one of the best support services in the business.
If you suspect that you have a
hardware malfunction, please first consult our FAQ
Section . If you still suspect a hardware
problem, contact our Tech Support department at (360) 371-4942 for
diagnosis. This is an answering machine, so you will need to leave the

Please allow the repair
technician at least 2 weeks in the shop for all repairs.
Products that fall under
warranty will be either repaired or replaced at no charge. The repair
technician will determine whether to repair or replace a customer's unit.
After the repair has been made,
units will be shipped via FedEx Ground unless other paid arrangements are
made. All out of warranty repairs will be charged a minimum
diagnostic fee of $100.00.
Be prepared to have the hard
drive erased. The majority of the repairs require a full installation of
the operating system software, which will result in a loss of all project
data. We are not responsible for any lost projects.
We cannot stress enough the
importance of leaving your corrupted footage and the approximate time the
errors occur. The longest part of the repair process is replicating the
problems. Leaving existing problems on the hard drive will help increase
the timeliness of the repair.
The Casablanca Classic and early
Avio boxes had cardboard inserts with a plastic sheet covering one of the
sides. When packing the editor in one of these boxes, make sure that the
unit is sandwiched between the two plastic sheets of the inserts. The
insert on the bottom will have the plastic sheet to the top, and the top
insert will have the plastic sheet to the bottom. If these pieces are reversed,
the system will have room to bounce around and will likely be damaged.
The current boxes have foam
inserts that fit around the sides of the machine to separate the unit from
the edges of the box. All we need is the original box and packing material,
chassis, codesheet, and power supply if yours is external. If you are returning a Prestige, Renommee,
or Renommee Plus for repair, please be sure to send the key to the
hard drive. DO NOT LEAVE THE KEY IN THE LOCK. It can cause damage. Put it in an envelope, or tape it to the machine.
If you do not have the original
packing material, we recommend using at least 3 inches of foam padding or
bubble wrap on all six sides of the unit.
Packing peanuts and crumpled
newspaper are not sufficient to protect the machine during
shipping. Foam packing peanuts attract static electricity, which can
damage the machine. You will be responsible for any damages incurred from
insufficient packaging during shipment. If you have further questions,
please contact us before shipping.
We recommend using FedEx or UPS
to ship your unit so it can be insured and tracked. If your unit is
shipped using the US Postal Service, or some other non-trackable shipping
service, we cannot be held responsible for units lost in shipping.
