Hank; I copied the wording from Sony’s class action agreement. It appears to me that Sony will limit the coverage to $271 only to a person who had the camera repaired on their own. If Sony does the repair it is free. Below is the wording:
If a member of the Settlement Class owns an Settlement Class Product and the product does not work due to a failed CCD imager, SEL will continue its program to repair it at no charge to the member. SEL will also pay to return the repaired camera or camcorder to the Settlement Class member. SEL will not, however, provide a no-charge repair if the CCD imager has failed, or if the product exhibits the LCD or viewfinder "blank" or distorted image problem, due to the abuse, misuse, or neglect of the product after its original purchase at retail.
I f a Settlement Class member has already paid to have the CCD imager in his or her Settlement Class Product repaired, SEL will reimburse the member for the cost of that repair, and related shipping costs, subject to the following limitations:
SEL shall not provide any reimbursement for the cost to repair a digital still camera listed above, and related shipping costs, in an amount that exceeds $171.00 per camera;
SEL shall not provide any reimbursement for the cost to repair a camcorder listed above, and related shipping costs, in an amount that exceeds $271.00 per camcorder;
I have already contacted Sony and they have given me a work order to repair the camera. So videomakers what does this poor sap do? Get the camera repaired or send it back to the seller? I know what Hank’s position is. Does everyone agree that I should return the camera?
