Customer Question

My Nikon D800E has just started to show problems. The viewfinder goes darker and it will not focus. If I turn Live view on and off if might get back to normal, but not always. I see in the interne that many have the same problem, but I have not found a solution. What can I do?
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: Nikon 800E. About 4 years old
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Hi there and welcome

Can you remove the battery please then hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds then release.

Wait 5 minutes, put the battery back in and try to turn it on.

Tell me please if it now operates correctly

Thank you
