Re: Totally dead D800 - any ideas?

I'm very grateful to the forum members who have taken the time to suggest solutions.

The camera has been indoors with the central heating on for 5 days now so condensation isn't likely. My car isn't that damp anyway and the distance from the car to the front door of the house was only 8 feet when it was transferred, with an ambient air temperature (SW France is mild at the moment) of 12 degrees C. I've tried with and without the grip and have swapped the batteries around. I'll scratch at the battery contacts but given that neither the camera battery nor the grip battery powers up the camera I'm pessimistic. I've tried MUP/on/shutter press but no luck. Dead as a dodo. Back to Nikon once I'm back in the UK. Happy New Year to you all, though, and thanks for the suggestions!
