That's mind boggling. How anyone can think a faulty camera and multiple repairs is not the fault of the manufacturer.

No one said it wasn't. Your confusing the repair process with the manufacturing process.

No I'm not. "Solving the OP's problem has nothing to do with Nikon" is not an ambiguous statement.

Yes it may because solving Juggernaut122's issue may indeed have nothing to do with Nikon Japan. And based on the resolution he got, apparently it indeed did not have anything to do with the manufacture. Not sure, in the OP's case here, if the manufacture was ever involved in the problem resolution.

Nikon attempted and failed to do the repair several times.

The Nikon repair facility the OP used in this case...is Not Nikon USA.

That's fine. Which country's implied warranty regulations would you like me to look up exactly? Most are very comparable and differ only in the detail of who's responsible in the first instance.

Only matters who's responsible for the warranty regards which issue your speaking of. Nikon USA, Nikon Japan, etc. Certain differences do come into play.

Nikon do not allow 3rd parties to purchase parts from them anymore.

Not sure that policy holds with the independents in Europe.

It looks like they've had to waver a little in the US as well


Not a waver at all. Nikon Parts store is Nikon USA...not a third party

Hardly consumer friendly behaviour...

Actually very friendly...I can now order a door directly. Couldn't before

Now it may be true that the retailer is responsible and the buck stops with them to ensure the goods they sell work, but they can send the camera to the manufacturer for repair or have the buyer do so as an attempt to rectify the situation.

Not necessarily. The repair facilities, world wide, have different agreements with the manufacture. Works very different from how Canon works.

Regardless as soon as they accepted the camera for repair it's their responsibility to it correctly.

Yes, but not necessarily the manufactures, depending on the country we are speaking of.

I'm not aware of anywhere that's against the law. Once Nikon accepts the camera for repair they're involved and responsible.

There are nuances. Certain Nikon repair facilities in Europe will accept a US body, and then the terms get fuzzy.

If they want to stick only to the letter of the law that's fine.

Sure...their call. I'm not commenting regards the subjective right or wrong...always pluses and minuses.
