    D90 - 2 weeks old - gone to the grave

    Hi all,

    Anyone had a similar issue with their Nikon? The SD Card's green access light was blinking away while the camera was off. Turned it on and all ok. Turned it off and blinking again. Tried everything no good. Went through 1/2 a battery in a few hours.
    Swapped out the SD card and same problem.

    Took it back to store and they did a swap, no questions asked.

    Anyone had similar probs or know what prob could have been.

    I am a bit peeved that a problem developed so quickly.
    Often beaten, never scared.

    It's definitely unfortunate, but I would prefer it happened early , much easier to get warranty stuff organised early on. I hope the new one works out fine.

    Yeah me too, don't want to have to worry about it when in China. Might take my warranty card with it.

    just doing some trolling on the net - it even has an acronym - BGLoD - blinking green light of death -

    most failures usually happen early in a product's life or towards the end of it's life (when it's out of warranty), so whilst unfortunate, probably a good thing for you.

    On the whole Nikon has treated me very well over the years with (touch wood) no failures. Pulled out my old D80/18-135mm combo on the weekend and it worked flawlessly. I got the D80 when it was first released back in 2006, so that's 4 years worth without a hiccup...

    They tried a number of cards different brands and different capacity at the store and they all had the same problem.

    I am happy that they swapped it straight out.
