I gotta say, I've had the same problem with Nikon equipment from them. Bought an N60. Worked in only manual. Sent it back and it took forever to get the refund. That one was EX. On the other hand, I got a Canon F-1 (old) in BG condition, and well, it's a tank. Everything works perfectly including the meter. I bought my first DSLR from them too, way back, a Canon 10D. The condition was EX+ but the battery was nearly dead. I mentioned that to them and they sent me a free new battery.

Honestly though, they don't test the cameras well - if at all - so I'd go eBay and ask the seller detailed questions if you want a "good one" from the get go. eBay will be cheaper too, in most cases.
