Will Nikon honour warranty if camera resold?

    Just a simple question really :)

    I know some companies will reject a warranty claim if they get wind of you
    not being the original purchaser, even if you have all the relevant
    receipts etc.

    Does anyone know what Nikon's policy is in this situation?

    Not sure but maybe best to give Maxwells' a call

    Sydney (Head Office):
    Switchboard: 8745 5200
    Service: 8748 5222

    I'd be interested to hear what they say

    How do they know the equipment has been resold if you got all the original
    receipts and still within the warranty period?

  4. As far as I know, Nikon warranties are not transferable.
    Just a ploy to avoid warranty claims.

    If you have the original receipt, warranty forms etc, and the warranty
    registration has never been mailed in, they have no way of knowing if you
    are the original purchaser or not.

    By law in Australia a copy of the receipt IS your warrarntee.
    Due to grey marketing however, Maxwells started requiring the yellow
    warantee slip to be presented.
    We (repair centre) actually fought this out with them because it contradicts
    local law.

    if you have the yellow slip... no probs.
    If you have the original purchase reciept you should be able to argue it
    I am not sure what their currrent stance is, but this was how they were
    running approx 12 months ago.

    Thanks for the detailed reply Kosh. That puts my mind at rest, I have all
    the paperwork, including the yellow slips.
