Question about Leica Digilux 2 Digital Camera
I was using my digilux 2 in a high moisture, tropical region, and all of the sudden, the screen just started blinking and stopped working ever since.. it does not power on.. and absolutely dead!!! Any solutions??
Leica has offered an extended service option for the Digilux 2 to deal with this problem. The text of Leica UK's announcement follows. A similar notice appeared on the Leica USA website for awhile but has since been removed. Contact Leica before you take any other action. They may have a fix that would be no cost to you: 13/12/2006 Leica Camera AG is offering all owners of the LEICA DIGILUX 2 a customer service free of charge even beyond the stated warranty period. Specifically, this refers to exchanging the digital camera's sensor in the case of a rarely occurring malfunction. Leica Camera AG has opted for this extended warranty due to the fact that there have been a few reports of this malfunction caused by faulty manufacturing which also affects some other makes' cameras. Prolonged use of the camera in tropical climate conditions has occasionally led to effects such as black stripes in the image or even a totally black image. This malfunction can be the result of sensors whose specifications do not meet the respective Leica Camera AG production and testing standards. Even though the malfunction occurs only after prolonged use in extreme conditions, i.e. perhaps even after the warranty period has expired, thanks to the service described here, the LEICA DIGILUX 2 customers can rely on having their camera repaired free of charge over a longer period of time. Thus, supported by this measure, Leica Camera AG is ensuring that the LEICA DIGILUX 2 will retain its value after having been discontinued.
