D5 Problem: Please Help me Troubleshoot Before A Trip to Nike
1

My D5 is old -- it dates from there first couple months of production and has never been in for service. It has more than 400K clicks.

Last night at a football game, I was in continuous mode high -- the first picture in the series appeared in the viewfinder. Then it went dark but kept shooting. The pictures taken in there "dark" were still in focus but there was a very tiny variation in exposure between every other shot.

Did a two-button reset to see if it was bumped setting issue. No luck.

Is this a shutter on death row -- or is there a setting that I hit that I have never encountered. I guess I expected shutter failure to be more catostrophic, if that is indeed what this is.

I'm a low-IQ guy so any help or insight would be much appreciated! Hoping its something stupid that I did that has me in an odd mode.

Thanks folks!
