Re: New to EX1R - Issues already / Help?

Seems to me as we are being encouraged to buy "based upon reputation" that we should know who the seller is. The "not my problem' comment with the camera sitting for a year is as important to me as "this might be a normal camera problem" defensive comment. I am getting ready to acquire some equipment. It would be great to know who I am dealing with. Not trying to cause mud slinging, but you can't protect identities and then say, "we depend upon reputation".

Not sure it's such a simple equation. My old EX1 has exhibited none of the LCD symptoms at 7 years old and closing in on 1900 hours - and it still gets its share of use whenever I need multiple cameras.

Re: New to EX1R - Issues already / Help?

Just a bump to this thread, I've sent my camera in to have that board replaced. As I was sending it in, my camera stopped exhibiting said symptoms. Not taking any chances though, for it is most likely the previous owner of the camera in this thread had something identical happen where it happened once or twice, but then he ignored it after it went away, leading to issues for the buyer.

It's going to cost me $270CAD to get it fixed.
