I recently had a sliver of an SDHC card break off in the card slot on my D300s. The sliver was very small and unnoticeable on the card. I went to swap/rotate my card with another and as I put it in the slot and pushed down to latch it i felt a small snap. Needless to say the card sliver got pushed down into the pins and latch assembly at the base of the card slot and messed it up. Sent it to Nikon got the quote back for I believe he said mainboard which makes sense since that card slot is mounted on the mainboard. The damages will be $236.50 which I thought was a bargain, my brain was thinking $500-$700. At any rate my question is: has anyone ever had Nikon replace the mainboard and if so will pretty much all the electronic alignments such as focus, metering, and so on have to be performed? That would be great to have all that adjusted and the camera cleaned and checked out for $236. Anyone have any ideas?
