I saw this news when it came out and immediately went to fetch mine from my home "office". I wanted to comfort it during its last usable days. Sadly, when I turned the switch to "on" - nothing! No response, no familiar comfortable information on the screen, no focus

I immediately realized what once had been nothing but snark had been changed to reality, probably in the last firmware update: Nikon had finally developed a way to terminate the usefulness of its cameras in order to force us to update to newer models. Silently I cursed the corporate overlords and their evil (but quite clever) plan. What would I do?

Then I remembered that I had removed the battery the night before for charging. Once I put the battery back in, all was good. Apparently the camera must have a power source in order to obtain the "disable" message from Nikon headquarters.

From the rocking of the cradle to the rolling of the hearse, the going up was worth the coming down
