Nikon USA have announced that they are expanding their recall of Nikon D750 bodies to cover those manufacturered over a significantly longer period of time.
Since the silent recall of the D750 in January of last year, Nikon announced an official recall in June covering cameras produced in October and November of 2014, warning that they “may not function normally”.
This has now grown to cover potentially all D750 bodies manufactured between October, 2014 through to June, 2015.
Nikon’s updated recall announcement states :
In July of 2015, we announced that the shutter in some Nikon D750 digital SLR cameras manufactured in October and November of 2014 may not function normally, sometimes resulting in shading of a portion of images. Since that time, we have learned that the same issue may also affect D750 cameras manufactured from December, 2014 through June, 2015.
For those who have already purchased a D750 and would like to have their camera serviced for this issue, Nikon service centers will service cameras as indicated below. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.
While there are probably a great many number of D750 bodies not affected by this issue, Nikon do provide a service to check your serial number against their database to confirm whether or not your camera might be affected.
If your D750 camera may be affected, as confirmed with the serial number check above, you will be provided with the necessary information to obtain service for this issue free of charge. Once your D750 camera is received by Nikon, your D750 camera’s shutter will be examined and replaced, and your D750 camera returned to you free of charge, even if your D750 camera warranty has expired.
Even if you’re not noticing any issues with your D750, it’s worth checking out the serial number, and sending it back if Nikon shows it to be an affected body.
With the issues that plagued the Nikon D600, going as far as replacing them for free with the D610 as part of a class action settlement, and the amount of problems that have also followed the D800 around, it seems that Nikon can’t seem to catch a break lately.
