Hope someone can help with this. I have followed the instructions on page 81 of my D200 manual to select FV Lock for the Function Button via Custom Setting f4. Then I tried testing it out with the pop-up flash up, following the sequence instructed in the manual. It actually did seem to be working (the camera made a buzzing sound and emitted a light, the exposure looked good), but the FV Lock icons did not appear in the control panel or the viewfinder as the manual said they should. I only see the 'jagged-arrow' flash icon. No "LOCK" or "L". I tried both center-weighted and matrix metering even though I couldn't imagine why that would matter, just couldn't think of anything else.
Does anyone know why the LOCK icon wouldn't show up?

Thank you,
