Gocha. Well, I guess you could consider whether imaging with the camera in the sunlight is something you actually intend to do or not. If not, then you may not need to really worry about it, as if the issue does not exist in the dark, then it probably won't matter in practice. There have been some few rare cases where I'v'e noticed slight light leaks with my ASI1600 and ASI183 when trying to capture flats during the day. Usually, tossing a blanket over the scope to shade the camera solved it, so I've never really worried about it. I only do flats against a bare blue sky every great once in a while, otherwise the camera is always used at night in the dark, and light leaks have never been a problem.
I guess I am more the type to try and fix it myself if I can (especially if it might just require the addition of a bit of tape) before I send the thing overseas for repair. If something requires disassembly of more than a very simple degree, then I'd probably send it out for repair, but simple stuff...I like to fix it myself and save myself lost camera use time, shipping costs, etc.
