Nikon has just issued a warning to the attention of owners of its cameras Coolpix L16 and L18. The manufacturer reported that an overheating problem was detected in a few copies of the compact. This problem may occur in case of reverse polarity battery / accumulator of the insertion, coupled with a shock or impact of the aircraft.
The risks are as follows:
- failure of the device, such as stationary;
- overheating that can cause deformation of the top cover of the device and a general breakdown of the latter.
As a precaution, Nikon calls owners L16 and L18 whose serial number is listed below to return their aircraft, except for models with a black dot at the bottom of thread for setting up ( see photos).
Nikon will repair for free products, even those no longer under warranty. The details of the technical service is accessible from this page
