    Send it in to the service centre, get a quote on repair costs.

    If you are keen, you could try getting the manufacturer to do a check on the serial number.
    They will know how old it is. Only problem is it may have been in the store some time before sold.
    If they are willing to tell you which store bought it, you then contact the store.
    Then get the sell date.... If all comes true, you may have a chance at warranty (still doubt it though).

    A $500 camera is generally not worth repair.
    Do a check via a news group to see if someone else has had this problem with same camera.

    You might be lucky and find their fix is something you can do yourself.

    Cheers
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    that depends on the service personnel that service you... in sg, its really hard to see a service personnel that gives u a service which really makes your 2 thumbs up... if i can find 1 that doesn't make me lift a finger at him, he is considered quite good already.

    like my retired camera issue, i dunno where i put my warranty, and the camera is a pre order model, the guy saw & say no warranty card cannot repair, i told him bought in sg, he say no warranty card = maybe is parallel import, makes me wonder if they ever keep track of the number they sold...

    I will kick my legs, scream, bang my head and finally push the button to detonate all nukes that would destroy the world.

    Ok, enuff of the dramatics. I'll send it to the service centre and explain my situation to them. If they take my word for it, honour the warranty I'll be more than happy. If not, I'll get a quote frm them and see how much it'll cost and whether its worth it to get a better camera den to repair it.

    Of cos, I can't understand why izzit would one wanna buy something from someone they don't know MINUS the warranty card? Warranty cards can't be eaten without causing indigestion you know?

    If the warranty's expired, still understandable that the former owner lost or dumped it. If it hasn't even expired, why they hell would the warranty card be lost?

    Well, out of all the dramatic actions, you may also like to know that some manufacturers stated clearly that the "warranty is non-transferrable".

    Since the camera is working for a week, this shows that it is working initially. If it is malfunction after that, just send it to the camera vendor centre.
