Thanks, I guess the best thing to do is wait.

Be advised that Nikon may actually BREAK something else when they fix your CCD sensor. I'm sending in my Nikon for its 3rd repair as we fix because they didn't get the first 2 "repairs" correctly.

Found this thread and whew, hope this will help. My 5700 worked fine, put it away for the nite, turned it on the next day and I have horizontal strips of color. the images can kinda be made out, but it was a sudden problem. When in camcorder mode the picture is fine, it is just the stills at this time that have the problem. I will pack the Camera up, send in the completed forms, and keep the forumn posted on what transpires.

I am in the market for a new and improved camera and my decision will be tempered by how Nikon treats me.

Nikon was very responsive to my problem....but yes, I also found another problem after getting my camera back from the ccd repair that was not there before. BUT....Nikon was great with that problem too. After talking with them, they sent me postage paid label and camera was back and fixed within a week or 10 days. I found this problem 3 months after the first repair. Unfortunately, I realized this problem while on vaca in Hong Kong, so I missed some great pix. My mistake was not using the camera between repair "fix" and my vaca. So, make sure you use the camera after the repair. I have been overall very pleased with Nikon customer service. I think with digitals, you always need a backup camera.

Had my Coolpix 5700 for almost 2 years and then just after taking a great shot, nothing, black viewfinder except for menu items. Luckily I came across this forum, alerting me to the Sony CCD issue. Sent my camera in for repair to Nikon Johannesburg in South Africa. Got it back by courier, fixed and cleaned free of charge after 10 days. Great service! :-)

When you send in the camera, do you have to send in the camera as is? In other words, should I remove battery, lens etc?

Thanks

Hi Beerdamage

Were you satisfied with the repair job by Nikon?

yes, when you send in the camera, take out battery, take off strap, (I left on my lens cover). I had excellent service. Good luck.

I had my camera 2 years & then it went totally black. This was also part of the recall. It has been fixed & working beautifully now.

Then only complaint I was I had to pay to ship it to them. I figured they should've paid shipping both ways, but as least they fixed it. Saved me the cost of a new camera that I really can't afford.

Hope this helps.
