If you are wanting to return a product

We send all warranty returns back to the manufacturer for professional appraisal and replacement / fixing. They know how a product has been damaged and will not fix or replace products that you have damaged yourself. Returns can incure a substantial amount of shipping charges which you will be liable for if you attempt to return a product that has been damaged by you. Warranty return is not a "Tech" service, it is a way that manufacturers guarantee their products. It is not a way to rectify problems you have caused by mis-use.
