Removing the Sticker Does Not Void the Warranty Your electronic device likely comes with a sticker warning “Warranty Void if Removed.” Other stickers— and fine print in the documentation—state that the warranty is likewise void if you or a third party performs repairs. But these are utter nonsense and violate the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has stepped in and put six companies on notice, telling them in a warning letter that their warranty practices violate Federal law. The upshot is, in any warranteed device that sells for $15 or more, manufacturers are forbidden by law from voiding the warranty if repairs are made by individuals or third parties. And any company that tries to tell you that you’ve voided the warranty by making repairs yourself is in violation of Federal statutes. The FTC would not name the manufacturers cited; only indicating they “market and sell auto mobiles, cellular devices, and video gaming systems in the United States.”
