I picked up my D200 from Nikon (El Segundo) this morning for the Banding issue and of course did a quick test to make sure it was gone....unfortunately, it was only reduced. I originally had the 'type 2' banding with the longer stripes, with the repair it has become 'type 1'. On the service invoice, it states that they "Adjusted Image Control" not the "RPL memory compression" that others had done in Nikon NY. So I ended up talking to the technician dealing with this issue and he said mine was the first case that the "adj image control" didn't work for and that it was surprising that it only took me a few frames to induce the banding where they had done extensive testing to find it after the adjustment and found none. He then apologized that they hadn't fixed the issue completely and that they are now in contact with Nikon HQ in Japan and NY's Service center to find a solution. It is clear to me that they do NOT have a clear handle on this issue. They will contact me as soon as they find a solution as I took my camera back to use in the meantime. I was promised a replacement if they are unable to fix the banding issue a second time. I dropped mine off this past Monday fyi. I hope this helps! Good luck to all with the banding issue.
