I am forwarding this email I received from the camera repair service center. I bought the camera on 5/2/12 and only used it 3 times until it went dead. I mailed to the repair center and I received the email below. There is no way that rust and corrosion could happen if I only had it for 5 months. The camera was not exposed to any liquid. Possibility is that I was sold a defective camera and I would like to have it replaced with a new one or give me a refund for the amount I paid for it. I am sorry to send this compliant,but I need to try to explain my version of what could have happened to the camera. Thank You Please respond to my email.
