Robert, Where did you purchase the D3S? Was this a Nikon factory refurb? Nikon factory reconditioned camera bodies come with a 90 day warranty and some resellers extend that to a full year. Unless you purchased this refurb from a private seller, I would take the camera back and have the store address the issue.
Hope this helps...JL
