I have a Nikon D3200, which i bought in April, I had recently sent in my camera to Nikon to be fixed. It was having focusing issues, prior to sending it in the diopter dial worked fine. I waited three weeks to get my camera back, finally received it only to discover that now the diopter dial to adjust the viewfinder no longer works. No matter what i try the dial will just not budge, completely will not turn in either direction. I am still covered under warranty so I called Nikon and they said for me to send my camera back in. If that's the only choice I have it is what it is, but honestly I'm really dreading having to most likely, go another 3 weeks without my camera AGAIN, for SOMETHING Nikon did. My question is ---Has anyone else had this issue, Is it something I can TRY that may fix this problem? I'd appreciate any advice at all. I know this isn't a major issue, but it is something I would like to be fixed. Its frustrating I send my camera in to get fixed with one issue & it gets sent back to me with ANOTHER issue.
One post is enough. :er: We don't need three.
best just to let nikon fix it. If you do something and break it further, nikon might not cover the repair under warranty.
seems like an easy job for a local camera repar if you don't want a 3 week wait !!
Also some cameras need to be powered on for the diopter to work :)
