My screen was fixed and returned free of charge! They did a great job on it and additionally performed a general check and clean; including AF cleaning, image test, AF operation and image sensor cleaning. However, the sensor is worse than when it went in . I can clean the sensor, I'm extremely happy with the service!!
Hi My D3 & D3X bodies have both suffered fogging to the extent that they were unusable. They were also operated extremely carefully. The fogging is apparently a design fault of the original monitors which were not sealed against atmospheric moisture & therefore liable to fail when condensation forms,often in sunlight, between the two internal surfaces. Both monitors were replaced with new sealed units at no charge by Nikon Pro Support & so far have not shown further moisture ingress. Since the units are not fit for purpose it doesn't matter if they are in warranty or not - the manufacturer is required to replace them at no cost. I should add that NPS were brilliant & provided free replacement bodies on loan for as long as required. Long live Nikon ! Mike
This is a clip from the Nikon Glass Forum below. My question is, will this resin be used on my D3s when it gets sent in to fix the problem?
"Back On the back we get a totally new screen with plenty of improvements. Its slightly bigger at 3.2inches and seems wider than taller when compared to the screen on the D3s. Like the screen it replaces, its scratch-resistant with the same 640x480 VGA resolution and the same wide 170-degree viewing angle both horizontally and vertically and of course 100% frame coverage. But the real nice touches from Nikon are that it now supports a wider color range, nearing that of the sRGB color space, there is the ability to enlarge shots up to 46x and the glass now is fog proof. That last one will surely please a lot of wildlife photographers. There have been cases where the rear LCD screen would catch water vapor and fog up. Now Nikon have remedied the problem and helped to make a better weather resistant camera by filling the gap between the glass screen and the actual LCD with a special resin."
