Service Advisory for Nikon Z 9 Mirrorless Camera

[ 16 December 2022 ]

Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.

Users of the Z 9 mirrorless camera have informed us that there are cases in which the lens release button on their Z 9 cameras, when pressed, does not function as it should and does not allow for rotation and removal of a lens or mount adapter from the camera.

Based on our investigation into the matter, we have discovered that parts that do not meet our quality standards were used on some Z 9 cameras. We have identified a range of Z 9 serial numbers that may contain those parts and will address the issue as follows.

Nikon will inspect applicable cameras and replace parts as needed at no cost to the customer, including the cost of shipping affected Z 9 cameras to Nikon, as well as their return to customers, even if the warranty has expired. Please direct inquiries regarding this issue to your nearest Nikon service centre.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

Identifying Affected Products

To check whether or not your Z 9 is one of those affected by this issue, click Affected Product Serial Numbers below and enter your camera’s serial number as instructed.

Your camera's serial number will be checked against those of affected products. If your camera is one of those affected, instructions for requesting repairs will be displayed. If your camera is not one of those to which this issue applies, rest assured that repairs to your camera are not necessary, and you may continue using your camera without concern for this issue.


Open the camera's monitor to locate the product serial number. It is the 7-digit number printed on a label affixed to the camera body as indicated by the red frame in the image above.
