Nikon Complaint - Save Your money don't buy Nikon S710 is Junk!!!!
I was very excited when I first bought my Nikon in Jan 2009 for our 25th Anniversary. I know it was on the expensive side I was going to buy a Cannon live and learn. My boss said he had one and was working well for him at the time. Well I went on our trip for our Anniversary and wanted something light to take that would keep those special memories. Well I took about 15 pictures and started getting a lens error, which I now know is very common! My bosses started doing it too a month after mine did. So anyways, I ended up buying a Kodak throw away to capture our specials moments. I was not happy to say the least.
I thought well things happened and sent it back they repaired it and said this was a common error. Asked where I lived I said Arizona and they said oh that is why due to the dust! I babied this camera, it was in a nice case, and I was not dirty at all. I received my camera and it worked for a month then went to the NASCAR races and guess what? I got the ole lens error again, so this time no pictures were taken at all! Sent it back and the support is just awful cannot hardly understand the techs, must been from India! Received the camera after spending $100 they said the body had a small dent?? There were no dents when I sent it to them I took very good care of it.
Now the flash is not working most of the time. They told me it was due to a bad battery, right! So bought a new battery and still the same. So now, I have to send it off again and I am sure they will come up with something to charge me with. The sad thing is I bought the extended warranty. Buyers beware stay away from NIKON. The service that I have received from the Nikon repair department is pathetic. I will never buy another NIKON product! What a shame I mainly bought it because it had such a high pixel waiting and thought they made good camera’s I now know I was wrong!
