When you buy something from Bic Camera, most of the time, they do one
of two things (sometimes both).  If the item has a warranty inside the
box, they open it and stamp it.  Also, they sometimes give you a
receipt and a warranty after you paid.

Perhaps on one of these, there should be the terms of the warranty.

I suppose there is no harm in asking, but you can save yourself a trip
and them a headache if you skim through the warranty for anything that
looks like a duration.  e.g., "1 year", etc.

Quite frankly, few places in the world (Japan included) would give you
a replacement after having used it since August.  Great if they offer
it to you, but don't get your hopes up!  By then, it's hard to argue
that it's a manufacture defect...  But, if it is still within the
year, they may direct you to the manufacturer instead for you to
explain yourself.

I've never tried this myself, but I *think* in some cases, you have to
pay for shipping.  Not too sure...
