Help -- weird problem with my D5100
May 31, 2014


I was out shooting on a hike today and everything was normal.  I took about a dozen pictures and they turned out fine.  I continued shooting and all remaining pictures were black.  Everything about the camera's operation seemed normal, but the pictures were blank.  I went to liveview and the scene was black.  I tried .nef and .jpg and they were all black.  I looked at the images at home off my card and they (the blank/black images) all showed the correct exposure; they were just black.

Any ideas?  I didn't drop the camera or anything, but it's like the image sensor somehow got disconnected?  Is there any trouble shooting I can do?
