My Coolpix 990 bit the dust!...

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Philippe Roger, Mar 19, 2005.

  1. The lens gears seem to be stripped, so the lens won't go into shooting position, and as a result all the pics are OOF. :cry:

    Has anyone had this happen to their Coolpix (other models should be similar)? How much did it cost to get it fixed by Nikon. Baywing suggested getting a used camera instead: I won't do eBay: do you have suggestions?

    If it was just me, I would just let it go (still have a 5700, besides the D70)... but the 990 is my wife's favorite camera of all three! Thanks for the tips. :wink:
