Coolpix CCD Failures Part Deux
Nikon's troubles with CCD failures rears it's ugly ahead again in 2007.
Nikon confirms reports compiled over 2006 that Coolpix 3500, 4500, 5000 and 5400 models may suffer from CCD "solder degradation." The previous year's hot summer had brought the manufacturing defects to light as user complaints were compiled and analyzed, leading the manufacturer to identify the component failure. The good news is that Nikon will replace the components for free, irregardless of warranty status.
