Do you have a Nikon D5000 on hand that won’t turn on even with a fully charged battery? You may not be alone. Nikon has issued a service advisory for the hot new entry level DSLR camera. Apparently a bad component in the power control circuit caused the problem. Nikon will be offering free fix to all affected users. However the problem seems to be either quite wide spreed or requires special handling that they need to setup a special facility for it. People will have to wait until July 23 to find out if his/her D5000 belongs to the pool of affect ones by checking the serial number against Nikon’s to-be-published list. If you have questions, you can check out the frequently-asked-questions (FAQ) page or contact Nikon.
