Nikon Recalls the D750 a Third Time for the Same Shutter Issue

Unfortunate news from the Nikon camp this week: Nikon has issued yet another recall notice for the D750 DSLR, informing owners that the shutter problem first reported in 2014 may still be present in cameras manufactured recently.

Back in 2014, D750 owners began reporting that some of their photos had a strange flare issue that caused a noticeable dark shadow band across the tops of photos that contained flare.

After looking into the issue, Nikon began offering free repairs for the problem and started quietly pulling the D750 from store shelves before issuing an official service advisory.

That was in December 2014 and January 2015, and Nikon said the issue was only present in D750s made between October and November 2014. In early 2016, however, Nikon issued another recall notice for the exact same D750 shutter issue, expanding the original recall to D750s made between December 2014 and June 2015. It seems the problem still hadn’t gotten fixed.

And that brings us to Nikon’s latest announcement this week. It’s recalling the D750 a third time, expanding the list of affected cameras yet again to those made between July 2015 through September 2016. So basically, if you purchased a D750 anytime since the original two recalls, you may want to see if your camera is affected.

To see if your D750 is included in any of Nikon’s 3 recall notices, find the serial number on the bottom of your camera and enter it into this website. If your camera is one to which this issue applies, Nikon can repair it free of charge at its service centers.

“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused,” Nikon says.

With photographers already grumbling about Nikon’s quality control after the original recall was announced, this latest news doesn’t look good for a company that has already tried and failed twice to fix this widely publicized issue in newly produced cameras.
