yes, the image appears when the playback button is pushed; I have tried several cards
After I posted this I tried this again, several times and during this trial, the image appeared a few times, and it didn't appear some of the time. So, perhaps this is not a constant problem. This is the first and only time the display has not been consistent.

How soon after snapping the shutter are you reviewing the shot... even if you have the Image Review set to on... check setting C4 Monitor off delay... if you have it set to less than 20 seconds (default setting) such as 10 seconds you will have to look/review faster (10 seconds will save battery life however !) ... Also maybe I am reading more into this... but are you pressing the shutter again to review the image? if so, that automatically turns the monitor off... also are you using both card slots? If you are using only one slot are you perhaps trying to review the wrong slot (see page 279 of the manual)
That happens to me occasionally on my D3. It's usually due to my pushing (or even just touching) the vertical release. Solution: lock the vertical release button and see if it still doesn't show the image.
