RMA Request


At Costar Video Systems we recently updated our troubleshooting and RMA processes making it easier to request an RMA and get updates on the status of your repairs or replacement.

In the below video, we show you how to request an RMA and begin the new process.


RMA Information


Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you!

We will process your request and a copy of this form will be forwarded to you with the RMA number to be included with your return. Please note that any item sent to Costar Video without a RMA number will be refused.

By acceptance and use of this assigned RMA number the customer agrees to the following:


Non-warranty repairs are covered by the standard 90 days parts and labor. A diagnostic fee of $50.00 for non-warranty related issues will be applied to any repair cost. If an estimate is not approved, or the unit does not require any repair the diagnostic fee will be assessed at the discretion of Costar Video Systems. Also, Costar will do its very best to preserve any and all data from digital video recorders but will be held harmless if unable to save the data stored in the unit under repair.
