Key Features:

This Support Contract will cover you against all breakdowns on your HP Designjet T520 printer. Cover includes all callouts engineering labour and parts - including maintenance kit items which wear and tear with use. Our SLA is 'Next Working Day'. This allows us time to ship out all parts overnight so that our engineer has the right parts for the job.

We do not send an engineer without parts as our primary aim is to get you up and running quickly rather than just to hit a response time. This means that 99% of all of our contract calls are actually repaired by next working day. In addition our current Contract Customers enjoy 5% off all HP ink paper and printheads.

This product is compatible with:

Designjet T520 36" (A0) ePrinter.

These contracts are aimed to address your specific service needs within a specified timeframe and aim to return your hardware to good operating order within the shortest possible time.

HP Plotter warrants that during the period of cover, the hardware will be covered and maintained so that it functions in accordance with the manufacturers specification, and in accordance with the terms and conditions stated below.


In these conditions the following words shall have the following meanings ascribed to them:

(a) "Agreement" means these terms and conditions and any schedules hereto contained in this document and the Certificate of cover. No terms and conditions other than the terms and conditions contained herein shall be binding upon Resolution unless accepted in writing and signed by the Managing Director of Resolution. All terms and conditions contained in any prior oral or written communication, including, without limitation, Buyer's purchase order, which are different from or in addition to the terms and conditions herein are hereby rejected and shall not be binding on Resolution, whether or not they would materially alter this document, and Resolution hereby objects thereto. The Customer will be deemed to have assented to all terms and conditions contained herein if any part of the goods and/or services described herein are shipped or an invoice is presented in connection with the said goods and/or services

(b) "Commencement Date" means the date of this Agreement

(c) "Consumable" means items which are consumed during the normal operation of the Equipment including, but not limited to, printer ribbons, inkjet cartridges and laser toner units

(d) “Cover Period” means the hours of cover specified in your Certificate of Cover, noting that HP Plotter may close their offices between the Christmas and New Year period

(e) “Customer” means the person, firm or organisation placing an order for service with the Supplier

(f) "Equipment" means the equipment listed in your Certificate of Cover

(g) “Minimum Term of Service” means the period starting with the Commencement Date for which a fixed charge has been agreed as specified on the front sheet

(h) "Product" means any service, product, item of equipment, hardware, software, microchip, semiconductor (or other item containing, using or dependent upon any of the foregoing) supplied by the Supplier under this Agreement including, in the case of the Service, any hardware or software provided to the Customer by the Supplier as part of such Service or used by the Supplier as part of such Service

(i) “Remedial Maintenance” means rectification of a hardware failure to restore the Equipment to the configuration and functionality which existed prior to the failure and to the point of passing Resolution (GB) Ltd diagnostic testing applicable to that Equipment

(j) “Prime Shift” means the hours between 09.00 and 17.00 Monday to Friday, during the Cover Period – excluding Bank holidays and Weekends and HP Plotter holidays.  Calls received outside of the coverage window will be acknowledged next coverage day

(k) “Service” means the services as described in Clause 2

(l) “Supplier” means Resolution (GB) Limited trading as HP Plotter


(a) The Service shall commence on the Commencement Date and shall consist of Remedial Maintenance

(b) The Supplier shall respond to valid service requests during the Prime Shift or such other hours of cover as may be stated in the Certificate of Cover

(c) The Supplier will make all reasonable endeavours to ensure the visit of an engineer to the Customer’s site within the contracted response time which is next working day in England and up to two working days in areas of Wales and Scotland, noting that 95% of all Scottish/Welsh calls are attended next working day and of those 98% are resolved and fixed on the initial visit

(d) The Supplier will arrange shipment of parts to either the customer site or directly to engineers in order to effect a repair. Should parts be shipped directly to the customer site, the Customer must set aside the package in readiness for the engineers’ attendance, and the package must remain unopened and passed directly to the engineer. In the event that the customer opens the package, should there be any discrepancies later (such as parts being damaged or fail to test correctly), then such parts, at the discretion of the Supplier, will be billable. In the event that parts are despatched in a timely manner but couriers fail to deliver the shipped parts, or there are unusual circumstances causing the delays e.g. Olympics, catastrophic events or other Acts of god, then the Supplier may not be held responsible for any shipment delays which are outside of their control. However best effort to ship parts will be used at all times.   Where shipments of parts are required there is a shut-off time of 4:00pm to allow us sufficient time to pick parts for onward shipment.  This is because our couriers arrive each day between 4:00pm-5pm.   Calls received too late to allow parts shipment to take place will be carried over to the next coverage window where absolutely necessary although every attempt will be made to ship parts out the same day

(e) For HP DesignJet large format printers, all standard maintenance item parts, other than Consumables, used in the repair of Equipment shall be provided by the Supplier. The Supplier reserves the right to provide either new or refurbished replacement parts. Defective parts removed during the course of a repair become the property of the Supplier or sub contractor. Replacement parts become the property of the Customer

(f) The Supplier shall hold or have access to an adequate stock of replacement HP DesignJet maintenance kit parts

(g) For HP LaserJet printers (or other unspecified printers) all standard maintenance item parts including Consumables, used in the repair of Equipment shall be provided by the Customer. The Supplier will provide a quotation for replacement parts which if acceptable to the Customer will then be supplied and billable to the Customer, noting that the customer is at liberty to source their own maintenance kit parts. In the event that the Supplier arranges to fit such parts which are not covered under the contract, and upon attendance find that the parts supplied by the Customer are incorrect, then the abortive engineering callout will be billable at the normal engineering callout + hourly rate

(h) The Supplier may repair the Equipment away from the installation address. In such circumstances a repair will be completed as soon as is practically possible. If the repair is expected to take longer than five working days, the Supplier may lend the Customer temporary replacement equipment, at no extra cost, until the repair is complete.

HP provides two categories of CSR parts- namely CSR-A (for which customer self repair is mandatory or billable which include items such as inks, print heads, cutters, jet direct cards etc) and CSR-B (for which customer self repair is optional even though they are designed as self repair – and will be replaced at no additional charge under your support contract and include items such as hard disk drive, carriage, electronics module etc)


(a) The Customer will care for and operate the Equipment in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and only use it for the purposes for which it was designed.

(b) Any faults caused as a result of not using original equipment manufacturer (OEM) consumables will be billable

(c) The Customer shall provide, at no charge to the Supplier, full and free access to the Equipment as necessary to provide the Service.

(ii) any items of media originally supplied by the manufacturer for maintenance purposes
(iii) such Consumables as may be reasonably required to perform the Service

(f) The Customer shall be solely responsible for all software but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing shall be responsible for:

(i) ensuring adequate backup copies of its operating system, application software and data files are kept 
(ii) restoration of such operating system, application software and data files as may be required after Remedial Maintenance

(g) The Customer shall notify the Supplier in writing of any intended change in location of the Equipment including changes of location within the same site. The Supplier will at the Customer’s request supervise the de-commissioning and re-installation of the Equipment (for which an additional charge may be made). The Supplier reserves the right to terminate this Agreement if the Equipment is relocated without written notice or if any failure in the Equipment is due to damage incurred during such relocation. The provisions of this clause 3(f) do not apply to Equipment specified by the manufacturer as portable

Failure to fit an anti-surge device to your printer will mean that should you have any electronic faults – e.g. parts which can become faulty in the event of a power surge such as the GL2 card, Jetdirect Card, power supply unit or electronics module – then all parts and labour to replace such parts will not be covered under the support contract

(i) The Customer, by signing this agreement, is assuring the Supplier that the equipment is in good working order at the time of signing

(j) Any damage or faults caused as a result of using non OEM equipment to make modifications or alterations to original equipment will not be covered. (For example: where a customer has fitted a roll modification kit that bolts onto the machine which results in the X-axis being overstressed, then this callout will be billable)

(k) The Supplier reserves the right to withhold all services until such time as payment has been made

(l) Non OEM equipment will not be covered under this contract unless specifically approved in writing and added to the Certificate of Cover

(m) In cases where CSR parts are replaced and the defective part needs to be returned to Resolution within a defined period of time, normally five business days, the Customer shall return the defective part with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective part may result in Resolution billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair Resolution will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used

(n)  Where possible the Customer shall notify the Supplier of any breakdown prior to 4pm to allow sufficient time to organise parts to be despatched


(a) With the agreement of both parties, additional equipment may be included in the Equipment from time to time, the charges for such additional equipment being invoiced on a pro-rata basis (with a minimum charge of six months) up to the end of the then current invoice period and incorporated in the total charge thereafter

(b) A revised Certificate of Cover showing such additions will be provided by the Supplier detailing any price increase


If in the opinion of the Supplier, a particular piece of Equipment can no longer be properly maintained due to wear or deterioration caused by excessive usage or unsuitable operating environment or for any other reason, the Supplier may withdraw the Service in respect of said item of Equipment.

This is a break-fix contract only - which means that we attend site when your printer is not printing correctly or when there appears to be a fault (notably it does not provide for regular maintenance visits).   Our Standard Support Contract provides full breakdown cover - and key information is highlighted below:

 Key points 

  • ideally you should fit an anti-surge protector and use HP original consumables
  • when an engineer attends site there should be sufficient ink/paper in the printer so that the engineer can carry out test prints as part of his work
  • all of our contract customers will receive 5% discount off any HP inks, printheads and paper
  • this is not a rolling contract so you are not tied in after your contract expires - we will simply contact you next year to see if you wish to renew cover
  • your printer must be in good working condition prior to taking out a support contract - if it's not please talk to us first for the best way forward 


  • Accidental damage/misuse (e.g. if you drop the printer down the stairs or damage the plotter during an office move, or if you break a solid part which ordinarily does not wear and tear with use such as the spindle or blue lever).
  • Consumables (ink, printheads and paper)
  • Damage resulting from fitting remanufactured/non-HP consumables and parts
  • Damage resulting from fitting 3rd party add-ons which stress the X axis of the printer
  • Damage resulting from the machine being operated outside of HP's operating instructions (e.g. hostile environment - too hot/cold/dusty - or with fluctuating power/power surges etc). 


What if we move or sell the printer? If you move address simply notify us in writing and we can quickly switch cover to the new location free of charge.  There may be a reduced response time depending on the new location so please check with us first (e.g. Outer Hebrides aren't covered, Isle of Wight may not be next working day if we are unable to secure a ferry etc).  If you decide to sell or upgrade your printer please contact us first.  If you trade-in your machine against a new purchase we will offset any full months left remaining on your contract and put it against your new printer.

What is your response time? We provide a next business day response, Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm - excluding bank holidays and weekends.

What if I want my machine to be serviced each year as well? Our Support Plus (S+) Contract provides a full annual service/clean/inspection/recalibration of your Designjet and acts as a preventative maintenance contract in order to keep your printer in optimum running order.  It aims to reduce or avoid unplanned downtime as our engineer will replace parts which are worn or failing during the visit - on a date to suit you (normally approximately half-way through the contract).   This contract is perfect if your printer has not been serviced in the past year, you print high volumes or where a breakdown is a 'catastrophe' rather than a mere 'inconvenience'.
