Yep, I agree with you. But when it happens to something that is under warranty still - like my Z612 - then it is a big disappointment. And even a bigger one when you find out from the forum that many others are experiencing the same defect. Bad quality control or design or both, if you ask me.

It'll cost me more to send out the camera for repair than the cost of the capacitor itself, most likely, as a number of owners are also finding out.

So what do you do??? Live with it!

Bad QA yes but very probably a supplier cheated. Gateway and Dell had to replace a slew of MBs about 6 years ago due to bad caps. I am inclined to think the mfr. should include shipping or at least a flat rate shipping cost.
