Question about Nikon D2Xs (Body Only) Digital Camera
Hi, I recently purchased a D2Xs floor model or demo unit form a liquidation company here is Kansas City. The problem is that I have no menu options and the only thing that comes up when I access the menu on the camera is a small setup menu with about 6-7 options, none of which include a reset or any additional features. This renders the camera practically useless as most of my dials will not work because they need to be directed by the firmware. How can I reinstall the original version 1.0 firmware? Where do I get it if it is a possibility. Also the weird thing is that the firmware version on the camera now reads 7.3! There is no such firmware from Nikon so I have zero clue why this is setup like this. Please help!!
Sigma lenses sometimes need re-chipping for full compatability with certain Nikon camera. They are usually quite good about doing this gratis.
Try the Sigma on another body at the camera shop or at home (preferably and older AF film camera). If it works then its likely just a chip compatibility issue.

white balance can only be manually configured on "PSM" modes only, the other modes set the white balance automatically .

Take your memory card out and look to see if you may have moved the sliding switch on the memory card, if you have move it back.

Two methods...scroll to "reset" in the setup menu and follow the on-screen instructions. -or- Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave the camera alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

So far as I am aware, the 5400 will support only up to 2GB cards. As to the firmware upgrade you mention, I don't recall that that has any bearing on the max. card capacity; but it's worth doing for the RAW format support (for me, at least). Cheers and good shooting. Davo, Tas.

There are no official firmware updates for the S210. The currently available firmware updates are posted at
If you do want to update it with some other piece of firmware, simply put it onto an SD card in a folder named "firmware" and plug the card into the camera.
