"D7000 issue - anyone heard of this one?"

Hi. Brand new to Nikonians, just got my D7000 a week ago. From the getgo it did something I thought was peculiar: whenever the camera power switch is on, the memory access lamp blinks-about once every 10 seconds. I tried several different SD cards, same thing. Since I own a D40 and a D300 and they don't do this, I finally called Nikon yesterday. They said yup, It ain't supposed to do that. So the D7000 is off to El Segundo for repair. The camera seems to work perfectly, though. Takes stunning pics, every setting I've tried works just fine. Oh well...

Hi Tom,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Sorry to hear of your problem.
Nikon Service should have your D7000 up and running before too long.
Let us know what the problem was.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

It is always best to get the camera exchanged by the retailer.
It is usually quicker, and in the unlikely event of Nikon not having the right parts available, you will not be kept waiting until pats arrive via Japan.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.

Of course, I tried that first. I got it from Adorama, waited 2 1/2 months for it. They said they are still so backordered on the D7000 that I would get quicker service by sending it to Nikon. Nikon sez their turnaround is 7-10 working days, so that's not so bad. They'll have it tomorrow.

...and rather quickly, I think. 10 days including transit time. The invoice said:

Service Repair Rank B2 (which is Nikonese for moderate repair, major parts replacement)

RPL MEMORY COMPRESSION

Anyone know what that is? A circuit board? an IC?

Anyway it seems to work perfectly now. It's stopped winking at me!

Tom
