A Note on 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, taking 
care to avoid burns, and turn the camera on again, or, if 
you are using an AC adapter (available separately), 
disconnect and reconnect the adapter and turn the 
camera on again. If the problem persists, turn the camera off, open the memory card slot 
cover and, using a paper clip, press the reset button by the memory card slot (this also resets 
the camera clock). Note that disconnecting the power source or pressing the reset button 
may result in loss of any data not recorded to the memory card at the time the problem 
occurred. Data already recorded to the card will not be affected. In the event of continued 
malfunction, contact your retailer or Nikon-authorized service representative.
