Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
Hi, I am from Malaysia and this is the first time I post in this forum. I have a similar problem with my CP5700 - ccd problem after reading the various postings in this forum. I sent it to Nikon service center in Malaysia requesting for a free repair although Nikon Malaysia does not post such an Advisory concerning this faulty ccd. They came back advising that the fault is not ccd problem but a faulty main pcb and quotated a repair cost of US$250. They diagnosed the fault to be caused by the CF pin dented area in the camera. I challenged their finding whereby I sent a copy of the bad pic affected by the faulty ccd for reference. A reply came admitting the ccd problem but they insisted I paid for the main pcb replacement reason being replacing the image sensor alone will not help the camera to function fully. I am in a dilemma as paying $250 for repair is as good as getting a new camera. Hope someone here can provide the answers to my questions below in order for me to pursue the matter further with Nikom. 1) Does repairing the faulty ccd as per the advisory includes replacing the main pcb of the camera? 2) Is it possible for the dented pin to cause such a severe damage to the main pcb thereby requiring a replacement instead of just repairing the dented pin? Thanks for your help.
Nikon will replaced or fix your ccd problem no charge but in my case I was told they must fix anything else they first find wrong ! (to bring it back to its 100% state ) , My case a hair line crack on the monitor casing and some sand in the lens , so $160 later My problem will be fixed . with a 6 month warenty , but if I'm lucky I can bid under this price and get another one from E Bay .
