How to Claim
Simply contact RED Technical Support here or by calling your local office:
- US: +1-949-206-7900 or UK: +44 (1753) 386585
- If, through troubleshooting, the Technical Support team determines that your camera is in need of repair, we will provide a Service Order (SOR) number AND return shipping label to return your product to RED via expedited service. Upon receipt of the SOR, RED will immediately ship a replacement camera via expedited service.
- Customers will need to provide a valid credit card. If the damages on the returned camera are not warranty eligible, the repair charges will be billed to the credit card provided or to the default card on your red.com account. If you are unable or unwilling to provide a credit card, we will be unable to provide a replacement and will proceed with a repair request.
If RED does not have a replacement available, or you would like to keep your original camera/serial number, simply return the malfunctioning camera to RED for repair. Turnaround time to repair cameras typically takes up to 10 business days. RED will cover the expedited shipping both ways for warranty repair requests.
