Find out everything you need to know about sending your product in for service or repair. This includes locating a repair centre, the steps to follow to arrange a service or repair and a selection of FAQ’s to help answer any queries that you may have.


Service & Repair Process

My Canon product needs a service – what should I do?

If you require a chargeable service for your product (i.e. Maintenance or Upgrade Services), please contact your chosen Canon Authorised Service Partner in advance, to discuss the available options.

Please note, some services may not be available from all Canon Authorised Service Partners. In addition, Canon Authorised Service Partners may offer similar or equivalent services to those offered by Canon.

You can arrange a service for your product by following the process shown below.


My Canon product is not working – what should I do?

In the first instance, we suggest that you refer to our Product Support which contains information that may be useful in helping you resolve your issue. After selecting your product, you will have access to frequently asked questions, user manuals, drivers, software and firmware downloads.

Alternatively, you can arrange a repair for your product by following the process shown below.


My Canon Product needs to be serviced or repaired – what are the next steps?

1 - Locate your nearest Canon Authorised Service Partner

Please use our Canon Service Centre locator to find the details of your nearest Canon Authorised Service Partner.

All Canon Authorised Service Partners are independent organisations and, as such, operate within their own terms of service (including fees/charges, turnaround times etc…). Please contact the relevant Canon Authorised Service Partner for further details, prior to sending an item for service or repair.


2 - Please print and complete the standard Canon repair form to return with your product

This form will provide your chosen Canon Authorised Service Partner with all of the information required to investigate the issue with your product, to repair it if required and to update you on the status of your request. If you are unable to print the form, please confirm the same information in a letter which you should send with your product.


3 - Ensure that the product is securely packaged for transit

By sending an item to a Canon Authorised Service Partner, you are not entering into an agreement with Canon, therefore Canon will accept no liability for any loss or damage that occurs during transit.

We recommend that your product is safely and securely packaged. Please refer to your User Manual for shipping instructions, as failure to do so may cause further damage during transit. Depending on the value of the product, you may also wish to consider insuring the shipment. You also have the option to take your product(s) in person to a Canon Authorised Service Partner.


4 - Once I have sent my product for a service or repair, what happens next?

Canon Authorised Service Partners are independent organisations and therefore operate with their own terms & conditions and processes. Therefore, you may wish to contact them, prior to sending any products for repair, to discuss their applicable procedures

Please note: The above information is provided for customer advice only and does not constitute an agreement of any kind between Canon and the customer. The specific terms and conditions of the Canon Authorised Service Partner will take precedence over all information provided on this page.

All Canon Authorised Service Partners can accept repairs either via post / courier delivery or in person.

Where your product is covered by a Canon Commercial Warranty offering, any repairs performed will be free of charge to you (subject to the applicable Canon warranty’s terms & conditions). Where your product is not covered by a Canon Commercial warranty offering, any repairs performed will be on a chargeable basis.

Alternatively, as a consumer, you benefit from statutory legal rights covering the sale of goods and you may wish to contact the seller who you purchased your product from to discuss any support options that they may be able to provide.


Q: My product is faulty and is not covered by a Canon Commercial Warranty. How much will the repair cost?

A: A: In the event that your Canon Commercial Warranty period has expired or the nature of the fault is not covered by it, Canon Authorised Service Partners can also offer you a Chargeable repair. However, the exact Chargeable repair options available to you may differ and will be subject to the Canon Authorised Service Partners terms and conditions.

A: The applicable method of repair for your product will be determined at the sole discretion of the Canon Authorised Service Partners.

Alternatively, you may wish to contact the seller who you purchased your product from to discuss any support options that they may be able to provide.


Q: Do I have to include any accessories when I send my product for repair?

A: In general, unless you feel there is a connection between the fault and the applicable Canon accessory it is usually best to retain any accessories and only send in the faulty product for repair.


Q: How should I package my product if I am sending it in for service or repair?

A: Please ensure that your product is safely and securely packaged and refer to your User Manual for specific shipping instructions, as failure to do so may cause further damage during transit.

We recommend taking the following steps for Printers:

  • Turn off your printer by pressing on/off button to secure the printhead in the correct position
  • Unplug all cables and wrap them separately in a plastic bag.
  • Remove any paper from the printer and close its paper trays.
  • Secure the trays in place with a few pieces of tape.
  • Ink cartridges (even if empty) must be left inside printers (as failure to do so risks damage to the printhead and will invalidate any Canon commercial warranty)
  • Pack the printer in its original packaging if you still have it, ensuring you cushion the printer with bubble wrap or paper to prevent it from moving within the box and secure it with tape.
  • Alternatively, if the original packaging is no longer available, place the printer into a double wall (thick) box and cushion with bubble wrap or paper until it is secure and not moving in the box.
  • Place your ‘Order Summary’ in the box with the product.
  • Secure the box with strong tape. Double tape the top and bottom of the package for extra support.

We recommend taking the following steps for Photo and Video products:

  • Prior to packaging, please save any settings (if applicable), as your product may need to be reset to the default factory settings during repair.
  • Remove accessories such as batteries, memory cards, battery chargers, cables (unless related to the product fault).
  • Pack the product in its original packaging if you still have it, ensuring you cushion the product with bubble wrap or paper to prevent it from moving within the box and secure it with tape.
  • Alternatively, if the original packaging is no longer available, place the product into a double wall (thick) box and cushion with bubble wrap or paper until it is secure and not moving in the box.
  • Place your ‘Order Summary’ in the box with the product.
  • Secure the box with strong tape. Double tape the top and bottom of the package for extra support.
