Just my two cents (which isn't worth much) is that based on the sellers response they may have know there was an issue. Why else refund the money AND tell you to keep it. That's a lot of trust on the seller's part. that other items failed since is also an indication they knew the condition of the camera wasn't on par with their evaluation.

No, I got your meaning
. I just think the seller knew more than he let on if he was quick to let revenue go like that without checking if your claim was legit.
I don't think that's it at all.
I deal on eBay a LOT, and have had hundreds upon hundreds of experiences as a seller and thousands upon thousands of experiences as a buyer there. . One thing I've learned is that there are a lot of sellers who will gladly give a full refund and tell you to keep the merchandise whenever you have any complaint at all. . It is just their policy, their m.o. . They figure it's just easier to keep everybody happy than to try to maximize the profitability of every transaction. . It's basically just how things are done nowadays on eBay.
Your allegation that the seller "knew there was a problem" seems entirely unlikely, if not actually ludicrous. . Most sellers couldn't be bothered with the hassles that come with misrepresenting an item. . They just don't care. . They move lots and lots and lots of items every month and they can't be getting hung up with any one item taking more than just a few minutes of their time.
As a seller myself, if anyone ever had a complaint about somethign that they bought from me, I, too, would just give a refund and tell them to keep it. . Couldn't be bothered with having them mail it back to me, picking it up from the post office, relisting, etc. . It's just not worth it.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
