Hi -Somehow I snapped off the cover of the compact flash compartment (D700). I can use the camera (I cover the area with heavy duct tape), but I should probably get it repaired. Can anybody recommend a place? (I live in Eastern PA)
Thanks,
Bill

Yes, send them to Nikon:

Nikon Inc. Melville. Go to www.NikonUSA.com and look for service. Eventually you can download a Packing list that includes the instructions, packing list and labels. Nikon will not repair grey market cameras. If you have a grey market camera, I would start with www.mackcam.com, which is warranty company, but they know where to get your camera fixed.

Thanks for taking the time to respond Marty. I've decided to go ahead with Nikon service.
