Troubleshooting
If your camera fails to function as expected, check the list of common prob-
lems below before consulting your retailer or Nikon representative. Refer to
the page numbers listed in the right-most column for information on solving
the problems listed here.
Electronically-Controlled Cameras
In extremely rare instances, unusual characters may appear in the monitor and the
camera may stop functioning. In most cases, this phenomenon is caused by a strong
external static charge. Turn the camera off, remove and replace the battery, and turn
the camera on again, or, if you are using an AC adapter (optional), disconnect and
reconnect the adapter, and turn the camera on again. Note that disconnecting the
power source as described above may result in the loss of any data not recorded to
the memory or memory card at the time the problem occurred. Data already recorded
to the memory or memory card will not be affected.
