On My D800 the View finder blind is jammed open. (as well as the viewfinder glass vover being stuck) Any ideas how to release this would be appreciated. Thanks

If a lot of pressure has been used to try and unscrew the eyepiece, it may be jamming the viewfinder blind mechanism. Try turning the eyepiece clockwise a little.

I had the same problem with my new D810.  Robin nailed it -- a slight turn clockwise freed the stuck eyepiece.  Once it was free, turning it counter-clockwise popped it right off.

Thanks, Robin!!!
