    Over the last few weeks, I've had a problem wherein my D3 refuses at times to display the picture on the rear display for more than about 2 seconds - it comes up but then blinks off. Last night it was refusing to display at all except with repeated presses. Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing, or is it time for my new best friend to take a trip to Nikonland?

    (I've applied the latest firmware updates, fwiw.)

    LOL!! This happens to me frequently, as the vertical shutter on/off is turned pulling the D3 out of the bag. :biggrin:
  4. my D200 still does this all the time
    grip on or off
    not leaning against any buttons.... at least i don't think so

    as for the D3... have NOT had this issue
  5. hmmmmm
    i never thought of this about my D200 with the grip on
    not sure now

    I'll try to pay more attention -- willing to bet I owe you a cuppa coffee!

    I was doing the same thing when I started using my D3. It had me worried for a bit. :redface:
