D800 autofocus won't engage

I just bought a D800. Unfortunately, there is a problem with it: the autofocus sometimes won't engage. It happens once in a while that when i press the af-on button, there is no reaction from the camera. After fiddling with buttons and switches for a while, it starts to work properly again. It is as if there is some sort of glutt to the electrical circuits of the af-system. Anyone else had this problem?
