Very odd. You should still have been covered by the $10+$10 no-fault warranty, which should even include replacement if an item cannot be repaired. In my case, with the scope and other stuff I've sent to Nikon for repair, I've always included copies of the original sales receipts and warranty papers, so I've never tested their generosity myself.
