Alert! Alert! Some CoolPix Cameras are Defective

Nikon Logo

Nikon has issued a service alert for its CoolPix 3500, 4500, 5000 and 5400 models. Certain electronic image components in these models could fail when used in hot or humid places.

The company said this could happen in rare occasions and only in extreme conditions. Should your camera fail, however, Nikon is ready to service it and if a faulty component is found they will replace it for free even if your warranty has already expired. Sweet.

Your camera is faulty if its images exhibit a strong color tint, are totally black or contain defects. If you own any of those cameras and you think you have a defective unit, go to the nearest Nikon service center immediately
