Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
I have a D200 with the MD200 grip and 2 new batteries. The last 2 days of shooting the low battery symbol started flashing and then shuts the camera down. If I turn the camera off then back on it will be fine for a few minutes or so. I check the battery meter and both batteries are fully (or close to full) charged. I took the grip off and tried it with just the single battery and the same thing happens. I am using a 70-200 Nikon VR lens and a Sandisk 4 gb card. I am a sports photographer and can't have my camera shut down all of the time. Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
Try cleaning the contacts inside the battery compartment with alcohol and q tip also clean the contacts on the battery itself

I think that pbinvestot might have the solution. Last night, I had a hell of a time with a rented 70-200mm 2.8 using the MD200 grip. The damn thing kept on having the low battery signal and then shutting down. This is after circulating between 4 freshly charged batteries from the night before. I ended up giving up on the lens and replaced it with my 18-200mm. The problem went away. Later on in the evening I tried the 70-200mm lens again and this time the camera lasted about 30 shots before the problem came up again.
I think the problem may be the lens and the contacts.
thanks for the troubleshooting pbinvestot
