I tried the same thing with a flashlight and a magnifier, just in case there was something abnormal about the plug. I didn't see anything that didn't look right.

I agree about the 2 grips. I have the feeling SOMETHING is wrong in the camera body. And I'm pretty sure if I send it to Nikon, even though I keep seeing entries in different discussion that the 3rd party grips DO NOT void the warranty, that they'll demand some ridiculous amount to fix it...

I think somehow, some way you need to try an OEM grip.  If it doesn't work with an OEM grip, you can send it to Nikon and say it doesn't work with your / a Nikon grip.  If you send it in and say it doesn't work with your 3rd party grip, you may be at their mercy when it comes to parting with $$$.

At the same time, I'm having trouble believing that with the large number of people using 3rd party grips, that SOME wouldn't have experienced the same thing I am.

Unfortunately, the nearest "camera store" where they MAY have a grip I could try is about 100 mile round trip.

I think it's worth phoning and confirming if they have one, and if so, consider making the trip. In Toronto, a 100 mile round trip is a trip to the grocery store.

Fortunately, the D850 still works, other than not having 9fps, which I don't need all that often, and MAYBE not having the camera USE the battery in the grip, which will be annoying...

Let us know how it goes.

All cameras are so good nowadays, that the good stuff is kinda "given" or "expected". It is the limitations that get to you when you use them in real world situations. Windsurfer LA
