Nikon Australia — SB-103 Underwater Camera

Underwater camera flash

What are the defects?

In rare cases, if charged and uncharged NiCd batteries are used together, hydrogen gas may be discharged by the batteries. This gas build up in the unit may cause the front to separate from the housing.

What are the hazards?

If this gas then mixes with air inside the body of the SB-103, it is possible that the mixed gas could be ignited by an electric spark at the time of firing, causing a burst of the flash head. This may pose an injury risk to the user.

What should consumers do?

Nikon Australia will arrange the return freight of the product (free of charge) and an electronic funds transfer refund of $100.

For further information, consumers can contact Nikon Australia by phoning 1300 401 200 Mon-Fri between 9am and 5pm, by emailing Service.Nau@nikon.com or go to www.nikon.com.au
