This item in the D800 Setup Menu along with Image Dust Off Ref Photo are greyed out even with a fully charged battery(s). Any ideas? Thanks, Richard

This has been discussed before...
topic #19619
Subject: "D800E Lock Up Mirror For Cleaning Alert"

lookat this part:
Check your setting for G4 (the movie action for shutter).
If you have that set to "take movies" then the "lock mirror up" will be greyed out.

If battery doesn't have enough charge to safely have mirror up for cleaning, it will be greyed out.
