I bought a Kodak C653 early this year. After a few times using it, the camera shutter len can't open, even with a new batteries.
I decided to take the camera for repair. I took along the chopped warranty card to the same dealer that I bought the camera. Besides the chopped warranty card with the dealer name and address, the counter staff also asked me for the copy of the receipt. According to him, they need to send a copy of the receipt with the warranty card to their supplier, in order to get my camera repaired.
Lucky I kept the receipt in the box, so I don't have make another trip to the shop to get my camera repair.
I find it ironic that the supplier doesn't acknowledge their own valid warranty card.
