Just got my D700 back from Nikon service where they replaced most of the electronics. However, my camera has a dark border across the top of my images (about 15% of the screen). I tried a different lens and it is still there, I checked all my settings (like DX vs FX formating) and they appear to be set okay.
Before I send it back to Nikon (for another 4 weeks of work, and hundreds of $$), any suggestions.
That looks like it could be a sticking shutter, which could be a fault or could perhaps be because of low temperatures. Does it happen on every shot? What was the original problem that it was sent to Nikon to fix?
I assume you were shooting this image through glass - hence the odd patterns and spots in various places...?
Yes I was shooting through glass and yes it happens on every shot (although it does appear to be a little worse on some then others). The reason it first was sent in was because when you put on an AFS lens it would shut the camera down completely and register a dead battery. If you took off the AFS and put on an older lens it would work fine.
Your thought of a sticking shutter makes sense. is there something I can do, or do I need to send it away again?
