"D5100 - Green line across LCD display" Tue 12-Mar-13 04:00 PM by D2xer
'The Green Line of Death'? for display ...I hope not
I've been happily playing with my used D5100 for a week or so now. Everything was fine. I mean, apart from the way it blows my D2X away 8>/
Anyway, today I noticed a fine green vertical line running from top to bottom of the LCD display, about 12mm from the right side. It's always there, whenever the screen is powered up, over-writing whatever mode the display is in.
Kind of a bummer 8>/
Has anyone seen or heard of this fault? Any suggestions?

Yes, I know it only affects the display. I'd try to ignore it, as I only paid $300 for the body. But only if I could be sure it wasn't a sign of worse to come. I still have a day or two left to return it.

Thanks. Yeah, I did. It's being repaired free of charge under the 30-day store warranty. It'll be a few weeks before get it back. No problem doing without it for as long as it takes - after all, I have D2x 8>)
