I've just purchased a second user D300 to replace my faithful and much abused D200 which gave up the ghost last weekend.

Just before I consign the old body to the metaphorical bin (and quite possibly the actual bin!) I'd like to check with the more knowledgable that there's nothing else reasonable that I can do with it.

In short, the body doesn't meter at all, always showing full deflection U/E. If the shutter is actuated nothing at all is written to card. Not even a blank or black image. Tried numerous cards, green button reset etc. Body still formats cards and if connected to a computer the computer can read the card in the camera body.

I'm assuming a sensor fault and an (economic) write off?
