Sound like a damaged card, can you try another card in the camera?

My D80 did this once and the card would work in other cameras but not the D80 again.

My Nikon D2oo is not working with Extreme 111 Compact flash cards that I just had the camera Format. There is an burn oder coming from either the camera or card.Wanting to put card not formatted with...


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Please if the card contains any important pictures, connect it to a computer and copy them to the computer if they are not backed up. Then put the card in the camera and format the card in the camera, then you can connect it back to the computer, put those pictures in there and then the card back into the camera if that is what you wanted to do.

Note that the camera might not show your pictures, unless they are named the same way as original pictures taken with the camera.

Nikon D200 - problems formatting card


To use the two format buttons:
Press the "trashcan" format button and hold it. Then press the "mode" format button and hold it. Hold for approx 3~4 seconds. The screen will go blank and display "For" and the number of shots taken on the card.
Release both buttons. Then press the "trashcan" again followed by the format button. The screen will go back to normal, except the number of shots indicator, it will display "For". In a few seconds, your card will be formatted.

Although this may not solve your problem, you may have bad CF Card.
This is normal. Happens all the time.

Try another card. It should format fine. If it doesnt, take your camera to an authorized dealer/repair shop for maint.

Can not format card for Nikon d200


Is you camera plugged into you computer. If so, you cannot format the card from the camera, unless it is unplugged. This just happened to me (I was about to look for a bent pin). Unplugging solved the problem.

"for" message on LCD


It means you need to format your compact flash card.  Or...it may be that you've been bitten by the infamous BGLD problem (Blinking Green Light of Death) that caused my D70 to eventually be replaced by Nikon.  Thankfully it was under warranty at the point, which yours will not be.  
If you haven't ever formatted your card, this is probably the problem.  To do so, just hold the two buttons that say "for" in red on them down for a second so that the letters "FOR" start to blink, then do it again while seeing that.  Let go and wait a couple of seconds.  The FOR will be replaced by numbers that tell you how many images you have left on the card until it is full.  I format my cards EVERY time I put a card back in the camera.  This prevents bad locations from cropping up on the card and creating bad images (corrupt).

Nikon D200 and microdrive


I assume by "microdrive" you mean the compact flash card - right? Not all compact flash cards will word with the D200 - what is the brand of each of the flash cards you have (and are they all the same-purchased at the same time)?

Exposure button not working


Have you done the firmware update? If not the update is available here: CLICK HERE FOR MACINTOSH or CLICK HERE FOR PC.

If that didn't solve your issue, you may have to go to an authorized Nikon dealer to have the camera reset. The internal battery cannot be serviced by untrained persons. I would also suggest that going forward, you carry your camera inside your coat when you're outside in cold weather, since electronics are easily damaged (especially software) by frost and / or water vapor which can very easily damage parts of your camera (hardware and software) in any weather.
