I had been shooting a bridal for about two and a half hours. I showed the "bride" the last picture before we did the couples pictures. Right after that, the monitor on the back of the camera went blank. I couldn't bring up any of the pictures to look at or the menu. I thought I might be able to see if I somehow switched something and that was why I couldn't see the pictures any more. Yet, I couldn't see the menu either. I checked the battery setting on the top. I had used about 1/4 of the battery, so that wasn't it. I tried turning it off and turning it back on. That didn't work. I had my D300 there, so I switched to it because I was using off camera flashes and needed to see if my exposure was correct. When I got home, I tried to access the pictures again and still had a blank screen. I downloaded the pictures. There was nothing wrong there. I will try recharging the batteries and see if that fixes it; although, I could still read the top of the camera. Any suggestions? This is only the fourth time I've used this camera.
