I went to take a photo this morning and after one take, I was in Manual mode and tried to adjust of aperture and shutter speed. Neither would move off of the settings. I turned the camera off and on again and could adjust the settings. Later, I tried to change modes and the camera went to 'format' mode! I turned it off and on again, but could still not get a mode change. A little later I lost the LCD screen, just stayed blank on playback or menu. Thats the current state.

I thought I remembered reading somewhere on this site about defective batteries. I am almost positive that this is the first time that I have used this battery . It is a Nikon EN-EL3e, serial #16021 and ordered from either Adorama or B&H.

Additionally, I had accidentally left the camera on and ran an older battery to zero. I then put in the above battery and got the problems stated above.

Coincidence? Appreciate any feedback.

Many times when I click the shutter, I just hope ....
