check out dpreview.com in the Nikon forum. Seems like all cameras thru #3114394 have the defect. I think this represents ~2.5 months' worth of sales, *plus* whatever is in the inventory pipeline.

I purchased a D5000 in July and have been very satisfied with it. Great camera. I recently received an email from Nikon about this problem. My s# is 304**** and they say it has the problem. I haven't sent it in yet. I'm having a problem with fixing something that works fine.

I just went to my local Best Buy today. They had 3 D5000 in the box and I had them check all serial numbers at Nikon's web sight. All were within the recall. Most recalls give customers a serial number range so I also would not be surprised if all D5000s are recalled either.

Oh, one other point. From the Nikon webpage FAQ:
Q. My D5000's serial number was verified as affected by this Advisory, but my camera is working fine. Does it still require the service related to this Advisory?
A. Yes. Even though your camera may not yet exhibit the indications related to this Advisory, Nikon recommends that the service be performed at your earliest convenience.

Nikon recommends you send your camera in.

I sent mine in on July 27 and got it back today, Aug 4. Everything went perfectly.

Thanks for the reply! I do have a back up, a Sony 2.5 megapix I got around 2001. The D5000 gives you a much better picture to work with , I like to use RAW files with Photoshop which the Sony doesn't do. I've read the info on Nikon's site and will send it in. Our grandbaby (4 months old) is coming for a visit tomorrow for a few days and I plan to send it in after the visit. I'll miss it. . .The camera and the grandbaby.

I saw that also. I want to say the ones I had checked were in the 308**** range if I'm remembering right. 30** for sure. Bummer. I'm running out of summer and I've got the itch for a DSLR. I may go for the Canon T1i. But I really like the user menu Nikon uses. That and the pictures seem better.

yes, I've asked twice and haven't gotten an answer. I've returned a recall unit. If I could get a clean one, I'd buy it. I think it's a very nice product. But, I for one, am not going to pay retail for a "fixer-upper". At a "refurb" price, I'd think about it, because units below ser 3114200 are exactly that - refurbs waiting to be refurbed. I'm going to wait another week to see if I get an answer, and then just get something else. Sigh.
