So my obscenely expensive D4 stopped working in the middle of an Arizona Highways birds photography workshop that I'd paid lots of money for. The LCD did not work and the focus-mode selector did not work. You can't check your histogram, change your focus mode or points, or do anything with your menu if the LCD doesn't work.

I sent it in to Nikon for warranty service two weeks ago, and got it back today -- with a note saying they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

WTH? So a non-functioning LCD is _normal_? Yes, it's working now, but it worked for nine months before it stopped also. So it strikes me that it's just a matter of time before it goes out again and if Nikon thinks that's okay, I just have to accept it. Also if it goes out again six months from now I'm SOL without warranty coverage any more.

Suggestions? Anyone else have LCD problems, and/or a similar experience with Nikon not finding anything wrong when you know there is?
