I was shooting in fairly cold weather (35 F) this morning, and after a few frames, the D200 locked up when I tried to take a shot. The viewfinder went black (I guess the mirror didn't come back down) and the top LCD displayed "err". Hitting the shutter release again reset it, but then it happened several more times. I was able to take a few pictures, and they came out ok, but no image was recorded in these lockup instances. In fact, only in one case of lockup was there a file created at all, and it is unreadable.

I called up a repair technician, and he told me once the camera warms up, to turn it on, and then remove the battery (in my case, unscrew the MB-D200) while the camera is on. This resets the charging system. Of course, if the issue comes back again, it will need to be looked at.

Anyone ever have this issue? What was the outcome?
