Warranty and RMA

The following warranty and RMA policy applies to orders with shipping addresses within the 48 contiguous United States only (excluding Alaska & Hawaii). For orders with shipping addresses outside United States, please see the bottom of this page.

Product Warranty:

All complete lamp modules come with a 270 days warranty (except some product warranties may vary, check the individual product page for more information) covering problems due to defective materials or workmanship provided by ApexLamps. The warranty period begins on the date of shipment and lasts for 270 days. The warranty does not cover lamps damaged by projector malfunction, i.e. cooling or power supply issues. Additionally, the warranty will not cover lamps damaged in shipping or installation. The customer must make damage claims with us within 5 business day if the product is DOA (damaged on arrival).

NOTE: The warranty from date of shipment is non-renewable. If, for any reason, you have a lamp replaced with us through the RMA process, its warranty period will consist of however many days were left on your original warranty.

RMA Authorization:

All our lamp modules are covered under our warranty. If there is a problem, or if you are not satisfied, please call or e-mail us for a RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number. We cannot accept returns and will not process refunds or replacements without the original lamp and RMA number.


An RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number is required for any product that is to be returned to ApexLamps. RMA numbers are valid for 10 business days from the date of issuance. Any products returned to ApexLamps without an RMA number, or with an RMA number issued more than 10 business days prior, will be refused.

If you set up a return within the first 30 days of the warranty, we will provide UPS return service label if the return is caused by the defective materials or workmanship provided by ApexLamps. If the return is set up after the first 30 days of the warranty, the customer will be responsible for the return shipping costs, and will be able to ship it back for a REPLACEMENT ONLY.
