In the past, I have sent my CoolPix 990 to Nikon and they have\nrepaired it (and done a routine check) for free. I don't remember\nevery giving any warranty information, so maybe they fix anything of\ntheirs as a good gesture? Anyways, my warranty by now is likely\nexpired, and my camera has a problem. I noticed one of the plastic\nparts in the battery chamber that keeps latch closed (after the close\nbutton slider is slid) had broken, and therefore the chamber would not\nstay closed, and the only was to take pictures was to press upwards\nforcefully with my thumb awkwardly. I can barely take photos this way\nand was hoping to get a repair. The old website which told me how to\npackage and where to send the camera is one that I have forgotten, but\nthe domain, which I remember, [URL="http://www.nikontechusa.com"]www.nikontechusa.com[/URL], redirects to a\ndifferent Nikon site and I can't find any info. Any help would be\ngreatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!
