I will clean the electrical contacts and see if that hekps any. I haven't had any trouble out of it except temp getting HOT and shutting down on me when I first got it. I have learn what to do when I see it getting close to over heating over the last 4 yrs with it. I did need the other places , that I could send it oo. I have always sent my things to Nikon in Merriville NY , but with Sandy there , they are having problems on thier own and repairs are at a stand still for them right now. If that doesn't get it fix , I will send it off to one of the shops you have here for me. Have you had any work done at any of these Marty? Let me know. I love the Merriville NY shop. They always got right back to me pretty quick on what was wrong and LOL how much it would be. Thanks again and look for your reply.
