    My Nikon CP950 has recently decided that it doesn't want to autofocus
    properly all of the time. I also can't get it to focus on infinity even in
    manual focus mode. I would like to ship it to Nikon for repair but wanted to
    get some comments on their service. What was the turnaround time? .. Was the
    cost reasonable? .. etc.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  3. Sent my CP885 back under warranty (less than 10 days left!) for hot
    (red!) pixels. It was returned in less than two weeks with the problem
    fixed. Unfortunately, less than 2 months later -- and OUT of warranty
    -- it has now developed hot GREEN pixels. I'm guessing that I'll have
    to return it again for this problem. Still, a reasonably good experience.

    Yeah here's a guy posting from ''

    Well get a clue and get out of hotmail. All they do is give their members
    abuse. If I didn't turn off the spigot I would receive about 500 spam
    messages a day. Yahoo! Mail is worlds better than snotmail.

    Anyway, my 990 is also beginning to show intermittant focus errors. I got
    it in December, 2000.

    Ron,

    The AF on my wife's CP950 just quit completely, you could hear the
    sound of "gears" slipping as the camera started up. We had it returned
    to Nikon and the estimate was $187 USD. We pick it up today, the turn
    around was about 4 weeks - from estimate to go-ahead to return.

    Regards,
    Roger
