Yes, that is Nikon's unpublished policy.

When I asked them to send me a confirmation email that they were going to replace the equipment, they refused to, and told me that they would just try to repair it again."

Yes, that is there policy as well. It would have indicated replacement on the invoice though.

In the end, Nikon was not going to replace it at all. Unacceptable.

They were going to replace it...then they got pushed (in their mind...we don't know what was actually said). Unfortunately, I've seen this before when things are demanded. I would have simply recommend the OP take the replacement when offered. It will be offered again so only more time is lost. He will not get a refund, I suspect, based on similar reports.  As it stands, they are going to try and "fix" it again. More time lost. I would learn from this, good or bad.  I'm not saying OP is Wrong and Nikon is right, only saying he could have a new camera on the way with a brand new warranty...now he doesn't.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
