If you require Technical Support, we apologize for our inability to assist you at this

If you have sent a product to Hayes for repair against a pre-assigned RMA number, and
you have not yet received the unit back, please be advised that we are exploring ways to
complete the repair or to return the unit to you. Updated information regarding repair
will be posted here as it becomes available.
If you are checking the status of an outstanding rebate claim, processed claims have
been scheduled with the court as part of the Chapter 11 filing. As a matter of law, Hayes
may not pay the claims at this time. On a practical matter, Hayes won't know whether it
has funds to pay its unsecured creditors, including estate claim holders, until after its
assets are sold and collected, which will take a number of months. We suggest you keep
checking the web site for additional information.
We apologize again for any inconvenience caused to you. Our limited staff is working
diligently with the bankruptcy court toward an orderly sale of the company and/or its
assets as quickly as possible.
We will provide periodic updates of these issues when information is available, as well
as the status of the auction, on this web site.
