I've found the following "magic sequence" on different sites on the net, and it's supposed to remap the sensor on our D700 in case there are any stuck/hot pixels ... Anyone that tried it?
- Remove the lens and attach the lens cap. - Set the camera to manual focus. - Go to manual exposure mode. - Set ISO to 6400 and shutter speed to 1 second. - Take a "photo" and check the result for stuck/hot/discolored pixels. - In the menu, go to "clean the image sensor" (but don't perform the cleaning yet!), just so that this menu appears faster when entering the menu later. - Set the shutter to 25 seconds. - Take two photos like this and immediately afterwards go to the menu and perform the "clean image sensor" twice. The sensor is now supposed to be remapped ...
So, is this just wishful thinking or is there any truth behind it? Haven't got my D700 around to try it right now ...
Have a nice afternoon!

Camera gear: Nikon D700, AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8, AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6, AF-S 50mm f/1.4, Speedlight SB-600´s, MB-D10, filters, and ..... I really like Nikon!
I took it today to Nikon Service Center during my lunch time and they remapped the sensor pixels in few minutes. The picture taken after that with cap on body at ISO 6400 1/20s is now absolutely clean, black, without a sigle hot pixel.
Too bad that we have to go to the service center to do a remapping that cost $20 !
Thank you, but the problem is that the D700 folder is not complete, the very important missing is D700img.exe ! This is the application that fix the white dots issue or do the remapping of the sensor. I searched all the web about it, nothing !
It will be great if someone could give the link for it !
