Equipment Repair Services
Media Technical Services can repair media equipment, assist you with returning equipment for warranty repair, or help locate an outside service provider for items we cannot repair. We generally do not repair consumer grade video equipment because new products are available at a cost lower than the cost of a typical repair. Examples of equipment we may repair include:

  • Overhead projectors
  • 35mm slide projectors
  • 16mm film projectors 
  • Professional grade video and audio equipment
  • LCD projectors
  • Document cameras 
  • Audiocassette and reel-to-reel audio players
  • Audio amplifiers

Media Technical Services recommends that clients who purchase professional or industrial grade equipment obtain an extended warranty that is good for at least three years. This can be arranged during the purchasing process.
