    I updated the firmware today to see what they updated. While going through the menu, I did a battery check. The battery in the MB-D10 registered at 97% and the internal battery didn't even register, just as if it wasn't installed. Powered off and on a couple of times with no change. I removed the MB-D10 and the internal battery now appears and registers 77%. I didn't even open the camera and touch the internal battery. I reinstalled the MB-D10 and both batteries now register correctly. I had this same problem a couple of times before and had sent the camera to Nikon to fix, but apparently the cleaning and adjusting of the MB-d10 didn't do much good. The contacts should be in good shape as I just recently used De-Oxit on them. Going on a 10 day cruise to Alaska in a week and a half, so there is no time to send it to El Segundo. Come on Nikon, time to get your act together.

    Mine too !

    Funny, I did not notice this earlier but i just checked and the same thing happened to me. What is wierd is that I have never experienced this problem before. I wonder if it has to do with the firmware update I performed this evening. It should not but i wonder if you perform an upgrade with grip attached if there needs to be a reset ..by removing and replacing grip.

    I did mine with the internal battery as the grip battery was at 51% and would not let me install the firmware. I removed the grip battery and did the install.

    P.S. The firmware update from 1.02 to 1.03 was installed just before I checked the battery levels.

    Do you have an EL3e in the grip?

    I also just updated to the 1.03 firmware and I did have an EN-EL3e in the grip.

  8. I've completed the 1.03 AB updates..
    my first attempt on updates was not complete. I dumped them both in and clicked update
    it only did A. So I updated one at a time. loaded A and updated, shut off camera after complete
    and then formated card. Then update B, same process

    Just checked the batteries
    enel3 in camera and enel3 in grip both rgistered

    I just updated. While on the beginning the camera battery was correctly detected, after turning it off and on again, it dissapeared. I had to took the grip battery away and in again to restore the system to its previous state.

    I sometimes do a check of the changing from grip to body battery by just taking the grip battery out while on play mode. It works fine, it is working fin with the 70-200 also. Also took a picture and it works. I also hot plug the battery and it worked fine.

    Hope to not get that glitch again...
     
  10. I did the upgrade to both "A" & "B", after the upgrade the battery in the grip was missing. I removed the grip, and the battery came back......Maybe we should name it the "MISSING BATTERY SYNDROME" I kinda felt left out of the DBS :wink:
