The S6 was announced in Feb of 2006,
it probably was available for sale about March 2006.
It is April now.....
So the oldest you camera can be is about 13 months.
Contact Nikon and see what they say.
My nikon coolpix S6 recently died and i'm pretty sure it's still under the one year warranty. However, i don't have the receipt, but i do the the original bax it came in. Would Nikon still fix/replace my camera under the warranty?
