My D600 was nearing the end of it's first year warranty so thought I had better get it to Nikon. What is the likelihood they will change the shutter on the first complaint? What are other first time complainers seeing? I am assuming a shutter change will be more likely to fix the problem although I have read the survey results and it looks like I would have about a 70% chance?? Has anyone submitted the camera for warranty after the first year and are they honoring the 5 year warranty on the oil/dust issue? Interesting that my D600 started showing the problem after about 4 mos. and probably only 300 actuations. I have a D800 that is about 6 mod old and I have not seen a speck of dust.
They replaced my shutter the first (and only) time I sent it in. All I did on the service request was state that there was debris on the sensor that I could not remove with Self Clean and blower bulb. I didn't have to ask for a new shutter, they just replaced it. It seems like most D600 owners have the same experience.
What 5 year warranty are you referring to? The Nikon warranty for a new camera is only 1 year.
I recently noticed a spot that would not budge what so ever with blower or wet cleaning. It was about 50 pixels across and looked like a donut - a small spot with a ring around it. Definitely not a dust bunny. The round trip for warranty service including shipping was 8 days total. I don't know if the quick turn around was helped by calling Nikon first and having a case number to reference.
The camera was cleaned and the shutter was replaced.
MInes been at Nikon for just under a week with dust issues, just checked on the progress and it states they are awaiting parts. Prob just a shutter change and clean. To be honest I received tip top customer service and I would reccomend joining the NPU (Nkon professional user) After I informed them of my membership wheels started to move in my favour! I'm hoping that they will replace the old shutter with the new one from the 610... Time will tell
You don,t really have a old shutter, its only been a year, i am happy they are changing for new ones, hope it will do good. Soon i,ll buy a Nikon, i just got a fuji, might sell my canon 5dmkII, cause i like nikon viewfinder, its crystal clear
