    Hello all,
    Just purchased a brand new D3 and while working the Custom Menu and Shooting Menu I noticed the LCD would go black if I was reading my notes to make a change, i.e. idle time about 15 seconds. I don't recall my D2x doing this and when I checked my D3x it takes at least 1 minute of idle time for it to do it. Is this normal? I can't find any settings allowing me to change the idle time nor do I recall having done so in either the D2x or D3x, thanks for any suggestions, OBTW the battery is 100% and freshly charged too.

    check setting C4

    You can set the monitor idle time to something useful there ;-)

    Duh ...... Thanks, never used C4, I guess buying the D2x and D3x previously used their owners set them for 1 minute and now the D3 is too......
