Nikon D2Xs Firmware Problem

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!!

SOURCE: Nikon D200 problem with SIGMA 28-200 lens - works on one D200 and not my other

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.

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.

SOURCE: I need a master reset, hard reset, firmware reset

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

SOURCE: New 4GB CF card for E5400, camera gives 'out of memory' message

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.

SOURCE: How do I update my Nikon Coolpix S210 camera firmware?

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.

Nikon d2xs will not power on. Hi my nikon has been sitting unused for a while. I wanted to use it to shoot some time lapse and bought new batteries for it. I charged them and put them in only to find

You are correct. The internal battery typically lasts around ten years; but that is a very rough number. I would take it to a camera repairman or contact Nikon Support at 1-800-645-6687 between 9AM and 8PM EST, Monday to Friday for an RMA number.

When i take a pic,it says error press shutter release button again

I e-mailed nikon for this same problem. Their solution was to take out the memory card and press the shutter release button in the demo mode. To get to the demo mode you first need to go to custom menu/controls/no memory card?/press ok/ arrow down to enable release and press ok. Now you are ready to try solving this problem. Press the shutter release button to see if it will reset the shutter release button. I haven't tried it yet but it is worth a try.

Increaseing sshutter speed when using flash

Make sure of the compatibility of the flash unit and the camera body, The D2X is a pro camera that came out in 2005 and it was the flagship for DSLR's at the time,the camera should very well sync to the flash as long as the camera and flash can communicate. There shouldn't be an issue with a newer Nikon flash unit unless there was a change in the hotshoe connection, bring both in to a reputable camera shop and compare the hotshoe with a newer Nikon.
