Question about Nikon D40X Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
I recently noticed the CF lamp on Nikon D300 is constantly flashing and draining my battery power when the camera is off. I have tried inserting a new compact flash card Lexar Professional udma x300 2g card and have reformatted my existings memory cards (San disk extreme III 2gb & Lexar Professional Udma x300 4g card) with no success. Camera was working fine with these cards up until a couple of days ago. Can you help please?
Am afraid that it is an internal hardware problem. Chances are that the electronic trigger that fires the flash has shorted out and is therefore making the flash work even with the camera off. Since this would involve electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and a low wattage soldering iron or even a hot air blower, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Often even if you can actually open the unit for a look and see of the trigger/flash module, replacement part availability would be a major concern.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
