Start the replacement process online
Surface devices shipped in for service can't be repaired and must be replaced. We highly recommend that you back up your data if you can do so. We won't be able to recover it for you.
Go to https://account.microsoft.com/devices and follow these instructions:
- Sign in with your Microsoft account.
- Select the device that needs service, then select Start order. If it isn't registered, select Don't see your device? to register it.
- Follow the instructions to complete your service order.
If you’re able to turn on your Surface; be sure to save any important files and info from your Surface to another computer, drive, or cloud storage service like OneDrive. For more info, see How to prepare your Surface for service.
How much will this cost?
Without Microsoft Complete: If your device doesn't have Microsoft Complete or Microsoft Complete has expired, see the chart to determine the cost to replace your device.
With Microsoft Complete: For a Surface that is still within the covered warranty period, you can use one of your accidental damage claims to replace your Surface for a deductible fee (see table). Microsoft Complete is not available in all regions.
- To be able to use one of your accidental damage claims, you must select Cracked Screen under Select issue type when you create your claim (see Option 1).
- You must have at least one accidental damage claim available to use.
What is the warranty on my replacement Surface after service is complete?
The post-service warranty is 90 days or the remainder of the warranty, whichever is greater. If your device was outside of the Limited Warranty, you'll get a 90 day service warranty.
