How Do I Take Advantage of Manufacturer Warranties?

  • If you have a problem with your equipment Looking Glass Photo will send it to the manufacturer for you. We will need your receipt and warranty paperwork. Should you misplace your receipt, Looking Glass Photo may be able to reissue it, as long as the information still exists in our computer system.
  • If you did not purchase the equipment at Looking Glass, we may still be able to handle your repair (please contact the store for current details regarding your specific situation). If the manufacturer detects any indication of moisture, dirt, shock, misuse or other problems not detected when left off for repairs they will void the warranty.
  • While the manufacturers do not make any accommodations for loaners, Looking Glass may be able to arrange low cost/NC rentals. If you have any questions about these policies, please contact us for more information.

Can I Return Special Orders?

  • Looking Glass Photo policy is that special orders are final, with the exception of manufacturer defects within the item’s warranty period. However, this is at store management discretion. Should you wish to return or exchange special ordered item, please call Mike to discuss the situation: 1-510-548-6888.
