Serviced March 2nd/2020. It carries a limited 30 Day warranty, starting from the day you receive it in your home (if shipped out to you) or on the day it is picked-up or delivered. Warranty is provided by Absolute Electronic Service, located at 2904 Dufferin Street, in Toronto, Canada. Technician's name is Konstantin (Shop Owner). Telephone number: 416-782-3448. The 30-day warranty is applicable only within March 2nd. to September 2nd.

Note: I do not own the rights to any music you might hear on these videos.

The warranty covers you for the Tuner section. The tape mechanism was tested, cleaned, mechanical parts were lubricated, and belts were replaced. It all works very well, however the buttons seem to have a quirk. They always operate but you will have to work them gently and you will get the hang of it and have no issues. You will have to be patient to learn to operate the deck keys. Please keep in mind, Boomboxes were never really manufactured to have a life of more than 10 to 15 years by any brand, but here we are 35 to 40 years after, and yet we still expect them to keep on working (!). The Technician guarantees the equipment to work as shown in the video(s) clip(s) and will cover for the labour only of making adjustments and repairs if any of the radio or cassette functions fail within a 30 day period. Bottom line, any kind of warranty on electronic equipment this old is rarely offered. Any and all mishaps or accidental damage that may occur during shipping will void this warranty. I suggest you opt to cover for the full shipping insurance allowed on the item to protect your investment.

The Boombox was also slightly enhanced, by having added some small LED strip lighting as shown in the pictures and video. If this is not something you like, it can be easily removed. This does not interfere with the boombox electronics and its basic performance. This will allow you to operate the radio in a dark setting should you wish to do so.

I will ship the Radio to most places in the world. Please send me an email with your request and address, and I will find the best possible shipping rate available.
