My Coolpix 990 bit the dust!...

  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:
