Glenn,

Don't know if you have already taken the D3 for service yet... if you haven't then one more thing you should check before you do...

Check the Custom Settings c1 and c2.. AE-Lock button or AE-L in general... if you do use that function... whatever metering mode was selected will stay selected and display in the viewfinder even though you manually select a different mode via that selector switch UNTIL the AE-L is released.

Again, this may not be the problem ... the internal contacts on the switch could be faulty, but if this can be ruled out... and it is the cause then you saved yourself a $$$$$ costly repair!

Hope this helps
