As a follow up, I finally sent the camera for repair. I did not and will not send anything to Nikon. They wanted a minimum of approximately $125.00 plus parts. Plus, this was for an issue that was their fault. I found a repair service on eBay, took a chance and sent it. It was fixed for $43.00 plus a couple bucks for shipping. Needless to say, I am not a fan of Nikon digital cameras.
