D800E- buttons unresponsive (Video posted)

The camera shoots and displays last shot picture, but all the buttons in the back doesnt respond (except LiveView)


Doesnt work:

  • Menu

  • Play

  • Delete

  • Lock...etc

All the top buttons including shutter.

AE-L button (which i had set to Hold Toggle) is perpectually ON.

I have tried rebooting, installing fresh batteries, removing SD card, changing different lenses, with and without battery grip. No dice. It just shoots - but no way to access any menu. I cant even see the Firmware version as I cannot access menu.

D800E version, around 1000 clicks, 3 weeks old. I may have highlight display turned on, but no way to tell as buttons down move up/down.

Anyway to upgrade firmware without the LCD screen being not visible?
