As of about a week ago, I'm having some problems with my Mb-D10 on my D700.

When the grip is attached I'm trying to move my focus point using the multi-selector on the grip. The focus point simply won't move at all. It moves fine using the one on the d700 body, and I'm 100% certain the focus point "lock" isn't in use.

I've recharged the batteries and removed the grip and put it back on several times.

Any suggestions what may be the problem? I could be wrong but I don't think there is a camera setting to toggle it on/off.

Thanks.

That is weird. Have you tried accessing menu using the directional pad on the mb-d10?

Joey - I can't offer any suggestions that you probably haven't tried, but I can say that I've noticed this type of behavior occasionally when I had a MB-D10 on my D300 and D700. It usually resolved itself after turning the camera on and off. It was frustrating, and the grip was one of the big reasons I went to the D3. Hope you can find a solution to this one.

Thanks everyone for the tips, but it's still not working.
The grip is not turned off, the shutter still works...
The AF-ON does not work, nor does the joystick on the navigational menu.

I guess I'll try it on someone elses D700/300 and then if it still isn't working I'll send it in to Nikon. I bought it last september, I assume it has at least a 1 year warranty?

I seem to be having the same problems with my grip - just got it a week ago and first time playing with it. Multi-selector just doesn't seem to want to move the sensors around. It's frustrating. All other buttons af-on works fine. Any ideas on what could be wrong?
