Yes, that is Nikon's unpublished policy.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.

Hi Mako,

Really all I asked for were written directions on how the process of me getting a replacement camera would work.

I didn't push - just asked them to write down how the process worked - that is when they balked and told me they would just try another repair.

Very sleezy, IMHO. This product is under warranty & they are not honoring it.

I called again and they told me that they will have a manager track my return and work closely with me this time (they refused last time) to clarify what is going on, and how to proceed if they cannot fix it.

No need for a lawyer, the BBB does wonders with companies like this when they are screwing their customers who have a legitimate complaint.  One more chance is all they get from me.

Thanks for the info.
