A possible mechanical fault has been discovered in a small number of Coolpix
2000 digital cameras. This potential fault can result in overheating within
the battery compartment. Whilst it is highly unlikely that this will cause injury
to users of this product, the problem is sufficient to result in the melting
of the outside casing, causing irreversible damage to the camera.
The product affected is the Nikon Coolpix 2000 Digital Camera with serial numbers
in the ranges:
2010001 - 2042816 2510001 - 2543248
3010001 - 3060980 3510001 - 3561916
4010001 - 4063334 4510001 - 4555696
5010001 - 5014664 5510001 - 5512592
We would like to advise all customers who own a product that is within the

little as possible and will arrange to have product collected and exchanged.
