Hi Brian. Through the Nikon USA website, I was directed to send it to Nikon service in LA. After receiving the estimate I called (and got Nikon in Nebraska, I think!) to make a couple of inquiries about itemizing the jobs on the work order. This was 'not possible', I was told - the job is done complete - everything that's of possible concern is replaced - or not at all. They were friendly, but not overly so, and obviously had no direct accss to the camera (typical of any good shop, to isolate the techs from annoying customers).
BTW, I almost jumped on a Nikon-refurbished D2xs this morning, but desisted when saw that it only had a 90-day warranty 8>/

Repairing mine still looks like a decent option, given the unknown aspect of any used D2x, even a clean one. (Significantly, they almost always are sold 'as-is'.)
