Folks,

Just an update to my plight...

Camera sent, camera repaired and camera on its way home!

Yay!

Do they give you a report on what they repaired? Curious.....

Cost of all of this?
AU$34 dollars to post via AusPost.
US$93 dollars to repair and send back.

Really not complaining at all...

Paul

That's good news Paul, quick turnaround time isn't it (3 weeks), I would imagine they replaced the main board rather than just one faulty component.

Certainly can't complain about Chinese pricing on repairs compared to what you would pay from a U.S. camera supplier.

Cheers
Bill

So true Bill! Big update is...I have my camera in my hot little hands! They put it down to a "Drive Chip Broken?" Whats a drive chip broken...eh?



Weather is terrible.. so on the weekend I will test it out building a new database of Bias, Flats and darks and see how she performs.


Thanks for all your help on settling me down on this, it really helped.
