Hi all,
Jumping in with my first post to ask for advise with a problem. I recently purchased a MB-D12 battery pack for my D800e. I initially tried it out using 8 Duracell AA's, and the camera recognizes that the battery pack is attached, but does not give any power levels. This is consistent no matter which order the batteries are prioritized. In addition, if the battery pack is left in place, even with no batteries installed, the camera battery is dead by morning. When the camera battery is charged and the battery pack is attached, the controls on the MB-D12 appear to all operate accordingly, but the camera does not appear to be getting any power from the pack. The MB-D12 was an Ebay purchase from a Chinese supplier, and therefore has a warranty card in Chinese. I normally do not purchase equipment outside of Nikon USA warranties, but the price was so tempting I took the chance and may be paying for it now. It's not worth trying to send it back and I'm afraid I may have a high tech. paperweight. I have double and triple checked everything in the manual and would appreciate any advise you may have.
Thanks in advance.
