I sent my Nikon Coolpix 5700 in for a "5 day" repair about a month ago, and, after much complaning finally got it back today. The camera was in nicer physical condition than I remember it being in (I could have sworn there was a fingerprint on the LCD and more dust clinging to the viewfinder), but the serial number was correct. The serial number, though, is on a sticker.
I took a picture with with my CF card, which still had a pre-repair photo on it. The image count has jumped from 668 to 9091:
NOT FOUND: 1
Before I raise hell over this, can anybody think of a reasonable explanation?
The part that was supposed to be replaced is the ccd. From an email correspondance:
"I apologize for the delay, your repair was holding for a part (ccd). I was trying to get an update from the parts department and did receive confirmation that the parts came in. It will be assign to the technician shortly."
I'm having difficulty seeing how installing a new ccd would set the image count to 9091.
