  • Wow EM1 warranty extended to 6 years for free!

    Now maybe I'd missed this and everyone else knows but having just gone in and checked my MyOlympus registration as per my last thread about US offers. I took the opportunity to also sign up for regular review updates for the EM1 mk2. Anyway within minutes I received some emails from Olympus one of which has extended my original 3 year warranty for another 3 years without me having to do anything. Now that is what I call excellent service from a company that cares about its customers and has faith in its products.

    Nice one Olympus.

    Thanks Phill, I tried signing up for updates previously, but my login stopped working. Sorted with a new password. Checking my E-M1 registration, I have an extra 3 years! Splendid!

          Pretty much Timboo although I don't actually know what initiated it. It seems to be subscribing to the newsletter which I was already subscribed to? so just asking for EM1 mk2 updates seemed to do it. I did actually get two emails one saying I had 6 months extended Warranty and then after it but at the same time and date was the email with all my details and the 3 year extension confirming the Warranty lasted till 2019. A bit confusing I agree but I'll take their last offer.

              Ed that's interesting as when I looked it showed that I didn't have my latest lenses registered and I thought I'd done it? This is most probably me forgetting though

                  Ed why don't you try re registering them. Maybe that will get you your extra warranty as well.

                    Re: Wow EM1 warranty extended to 6 years for free!

                    I registered my interest in information about the E-M1 II yesterday and have received a newsletter but no offer of an extended warranty.

                    However, when I registered a new lens a year or so ago, something happened and the warranty on my E-M1, which I purchased on 10/16/2013, was extended until 4/16/2019 according to My Olympus. I even received emails confirming it. It still shows that in My Products but when I attempted to get the rubber grip replaced under warranty a few months ago they rejected the claim as they could find no record of me paying for an extended warranty. I think there was a mistake somewhere and my camera has been out of warranty for over a year. I don't know if these offers of a free six year warranty are genuine or administrative errors too.

                      Olympus customer facing systems have always been a bit ropey...

                        That's a shame Ron I'd have hoped they would have honoured that. My grip also became detached a few months ago and I was also considering sending it back for repair. As it was I just used a drop of super glue and it's been fine ever since. So I didn't test the extended warranty. Did they ever ask you to pay for the extended warranty? I've not been asked for any payment just told in the email it is covered till 2019.

                          No, I didn't realise it was possible to purchase an extended warranty before the normal warranty expired. If they had offered me an extended warranty at a reasonable price I would probably have purchased it. I hope that my camera carries on functioning without any major expensive problems for a year or two.

                            I bought this for mine. Do I now get the extra free 3 years to take it up to 9 years?

                              I did register for the free 6 months extended warranty, priority servicing etc when I first got my E-M1. If you didn't do that, you may not get the extra free 3 years? It sounds like it might be partially a softener for a horrendous price on the E-M1 II

                              For those having problems finding things they registered, check you don't have more than one login. Oly's various sites are a bit of a mess. It's sometimes not clear which login you should use.
