Second Time Recall for Nikon D5000 DSLR

Nikon D5000 DSLR Camera

For the second time in a month, Nikon has to recall some D5000 DSLRs from customers to service the defective units. Nikon explains that “subsequent to the publishing of the Service Notice and the adoption of the preventative maintenance, an additional and enhanced procedure was developed,” which really sounds like “Oops, we did not do it right the first time so we’re doing it again.”

Additionally, Nikon advises its customers to check the updated list of “Affected Product Serial Numbers”, confirming that there were more affected units than previously thought. The issue had to do with a malfunctioning power switch. The D5000 is an enhancement of the entry-level D40/D60 line with the addition of an articulating LCD screen and live view.

If you own the D5000, head on over to their site to check your serial number against their list.
