Re: Big Bad D700 Grip Power Issue!
In reply to VegasHoward, Oct 18, 2014

Realise this is an old post.

Just had this issue twice in a year on a 4 year old D700.

With Battery Grip in place, and camera set to run on Grip battery first, the camera fails to recognise the internal battery.

Remove Grip and camera wouldn't work at all, no power.

All genuine Nikon equippment, batteries, Grip etc.

Now back at Nikon for the SECOND time for an expensive repair.

First repair returned to me with the explanation of 'Component Failure' - but nothing more than that. Suspect it was a failed circuit board.......but I'd like some explanation as to why it has failed....clearly the problem wasn't solved the first time if it has then reoccured with a new 'component' in place.
