Why are people even opening shit that is still under warranty? Hell even to me taking off a heatsink from a video card and slapping a water block on it should void it since you modified the card. Shit how many people broke their GPUs just taking it apart for cleaning.
O know what I am getting into when I fix stuff or modify something. I fully accept that the warranty is out the window at that point.Physical damage has never been covered so yeah if you're breaking it then it's on you. Other than that there are many reasons to which I'm shocked by your comment coming from a [H] member!
Correct, big corporations exist for the good of the customers, employees, shareholders, and society in general.But but but...those policies can't be illegal, because big corporations would never do anything illegal, right?
I wonder how long those stickers have been in use? I swear I've seen them for decades. I think I can remember beige box computers, possibly from Sun, which had them. I wonder why the FTC is only now getting around to this.
Repealing, as in, current tense...
That's the big issue in my opinion -- people who think exactly the opposite. Lots of people [*cough entitled cough*] think/expect a company to warranty a product for *anything*. I still get customers who try to play that card when they pooch their OS and expect me to reload it for free.I fully accept that the warranty is out the window at that point.
Wait Net Neutrality was repealed? I didn't notice a thing change

They wanted a simple and efficient way to assure the items they received from warranty weren't tampered with and are genuine spec products. No one should be obligated to repair bubba'd equipment.
I'm almost positive, the sticker will be replaced with another method making it more expensive and difficult. If I was a manufacturer, I would. Countersink screws + epoxy, or just epoxy the housing.
And the reality is that would end up costing money to diagnose a problem in a world where many things arent fixed so much as replaced.No, any repair attempt that caused damage (bad solder job, broken cable, etc.) would still void the warranty.
They would just have to say something like "Warranty void due to solder damage on board." instead of just saying sticker damaged.

As someone said earlier cover it all in thermal epoxy, yes that costs more but how much compared to a guy who looks a boards to see how much they have been tampered with? And there is more than one way to destroy electronics, some without any solder globs involved, just make sure to clean up your botched repair job before sending the item in for warranty.
This is poor poor information. You've obviously never worked in the auto industry.
Dealerships have nothing to do with honoring the warranty other than being the intermediary between you and the manufacturer.
Here's how it worked when I was still wrenching, and it hasn't changed since: Customer brings vehicle in. States hard cold starts and CEL is lit. Vehicle is inside warranty miles/time limits. Do a quick scan with the IDS and pull/clear DTCs. Service writers toss them in a rental so we can do a cold soak start the next morning. DTC pointed to #6 glow plug. Verify harness wiring, good. Pull GP, yep, it's fucked. Replace GP, verify, send truck out the door. Dealership submits my book time and my findings notes to manf, and parts hangs on to the damaged GP in case the manf wants it. Dealership knew the moment they entered the mileage and last 6 if the vehicle if it was under warranty or not. They mark it warranty in the system, and submit. Goes straight to the many warranty department.
You shouldn't talk about shit you know nothing about.
Guess I rubbed ^this wrench monkey the wrong way.
Lol. Hard to rub those of us in skilled trades the wrong way. We just don't like people passing out bad information, especially when it paints the "mechanic" in a bad light. We have enough trouble shaking that old term that has become an insult. Mechanics are a dead breed.
