D200 & Grid lines

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR Forum' started by DrJani, Jul 16, 2008.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm feeling like a complete idiot now, but I can't figure out if I'm just doing something stupid here. The thing is, I wanted to switch off the grid lines of the view finder after having them on for quite a long time, and it seems only the lower part will disappear if I select 'OFF' from the menu :confused: 

    Is it just me or is there something wrong with the device?

    Haven't yet tried to remove the battery for a longer period, 'cause I'm not sure if it would make a difference.

    Any thoughts are appreciated :smile:

    I turned mine off temporarily the other day, and they went completely off.
  3. Exactly. What I'm wondering is if there would be some other menu settings which could affect this...

    When you turn your camera completly off, do they go away? Mine go off also, when turned off.
  5. They do if I take the battery out, if that's what you mean. I kept it out for some time yesterday to see if it makes a difference, but it didn't.

    Hi Jani,
    I'm sorry to hear this. There is no menu setting to enable/disable the grid display only partially. I am afraid your camera is malfunctioning :frown:
  7. That's what I also thought. Just wanted to check here before taking it to Nikon.

    just turn the grid back on and live with it...i dig the grid ..lol

  9. Well... I could. But the warranty is still on and I'm afraid there might be also something else wrong if the grid is malfunctioning.
  10. I have the grid permanently on as I find it useful for composition

  11. Getting it checked while on warranty is a good move. You never know what other problems might be lurking there.
