D810 key symbol continuously flashing on info screen

For some reason the key symbol seems to be permanently displayed on the camera info screen. I cannot find any indication in the 810 manual on how to disable flashing symbol.

Anyone encounter this problem before, it does not appear to be interfering with any function but I would rather not see it f possible

I have no idea if this is right but is the lock engaged on the side of the SD card?

Which camera screen do you mean. Top LCD or back LCD when you press i button?

Try a Two Button Reset

That and reformatting the card are the only things that come to mind.

I just checked. If you have CF card and locked SD card inserted, the key symbol will flash on the rear LCD when info (i) button is pressed. If you have only locked SD card inserted, the word "Card", key symbol and (---) will be flashing on rear LCD when i button is pressed.

So yes, locked SD card is causing this problem.

Gentlemen one and all

You all nailed it, the culprit was the locking mechanism for the SD card which had moved when inserting card.

Thanks again everyone
