Repair of a Nikon N55
August 11, 2008
To Nikonians Members:
I have a friend who loaned out his Nikon N55 camera to a friend and when he got it back from her, he noticed that the battery cover on the bottom of the camera was broken off and she attempted to re-attach it with some type of yellow glue.
I was able to use some contact cleaner and get the glue off of the silver positive battery terminal and using some wide sticky cello type tape I was able to "tape down" the battery cover so that it would make contact with the batteries inside the camera so that he would be able to use his camera on a photo shoot on Saturday.
My friend will have to send his camera into Nikon in Melville, NY in order to have the battery cover replaced. There is also some glue residue on the bottom face plate of the camera.
My friend is wondering if anyone knows what the cost would be in order to have the camera repaired. If anyone has any idea I would appreciate knowing. The young lady who borrowed the camera said she will pay for the repairs.
Thank You for your assistance.
