Repair cost for mapping out two hot pixels
Jun 8, 2009

I bought D90 camera (body only) from JR. Com less than 1 month ago.

Then, I found two hot pixels (green and red). Thinking that the repair is covered under warranty, I sent the camera to Nikon Service Center, CA. I got an email with a repair estimate today: $201.08 including tax.
This is what I see at the bottom of the paper:

Reason for Service: Total Amount 201.08
TO GWO DEAD PIXELS
This repair is not covered under warranty and needs approval.

I was surprised that repairng two hot pixels for a month-old camera was not covered under the warranty. How you guys handle hot pixels for a new camera? Tana
