Just to share that I got the sp4 sent in for out-of-warranty replacement!

Call the hotline 800 1013659, speak to a customer service officer. Your mileage may vary, I had to send them a short video of the screen problem.

After a few days, they called me back to arrange for a replacement. Appreciate the CSO handling my case, 'cos he really explained to me in detail what steps would proceed from that point on.

Waiting for the sp4 to reach them and a replacement to be shipped back.

UPDATE:

Got mine delivered a few days ago!! Whoopee!!! With 3 mths warranty extension from delivery date.

Do you guys get back a pro 4 or a newer model since the pro 4 has been out of sales for so long.

  1. Dial 800 1013659
  2. Home User Press 1
  3. Technical Support Press 1
  4. Surface Device Press 3
  5. Within Warranty Press 1 otherwise Press 2

Tried calling the support hotline but keep failing at step 5 (tried both 1 & 2)...the line keep getting cut off once it says connecting my call.

I tried calling in MS and they said they are unable to provide out of warranty replacement It will cost over $900 to repair the screen instead. The officer said that if anyone has received a replacement unit for free under an out of warranty period, they will do the same for me too. Are you able to help me out and provide me with your case ID or something so that I can show it to them as a reference? Please :X

I managed to call in today and told them that my screen flicker, searching online led me to the MS support page depicting the issue and offering the exchange (Source).

The CSO gladly arranged the exchange request for me and set up a courier to pick up my SP4...maybe those successful bros here can help you out.

P.S. Mine is also out of warranty though...expired in Dec 2018. I have prepared video proof to show them the flicker issue but CSO nv asked for it.

Lucky you! Yeah really hoping any bros out here can pass me out. I just need the serial number of any unit that was replaced for an out of warranty period. Once they have this serial number, they will proceed to do the same for mine.

Sigh, not sure why there is different standards though, or maybe the issue lies with the officer I’m speaking with.

Hi everyone,

i just called microsoft today regarding the flickering issue on my SP4
However, they told me that they can only do replacement for purchases in Dec 2016 onwards, and mine was in Feb 2016.

Hence i am not eligible for the replacement, he gave me 2 options
1) pay 800++ to get SP 5
or
2) Trade in my faulty set and get a new product

Is there anyway i can still get the replacement pls?

Anyway I tried and I shall update everyone here (So that no one will end up wasting their time). For the flickering issue, MS is willing to extend 2 years of warranty on top of your original 1 year warranty. Hence if your unit is within 3 years of your purchase date, you are technically out of warranty but MS is able to replace your unit. If your unit is beyond 3 years of your purchase date, MS will not replace your unit.

So for me, my unit is beyond 3 years of purchased. I’m mad at NS for not doing a total recall but there is nothing I can do. This will be the last time I’m dealing with MS products.

Anyway thank you to the bros whom assisted, truly appreciated Especially Big_Fish.

Thank you for taking the trouble to return with an update! It confirmed my fears as my SP4 was bought in March 2016 and beyond the 3 years deadline too.

I wasted 30min talking to the luckless CSO who took my call and got the same ultimatum as everyone else - pay $885 for a SP5 or get some 3rd party to fix it. MS is a dead end.

On the bright side, I saw that digital hospital is doing a screen replacement for SP4 at $279. One of their listed problems for a screen replacement is 'Screen Flicker', which is probably a common problem for SP4 everywhere. The replacement screen comes with 3 months warranty and a 92% success rate (their words).

I am considering the deal even though I don't need an SP4, because the alternative is a dead elephant in storage. If anyone else is interested, here's the carousell link I saw -
