    Nikon D4s stone dead!

    Suddenly, after the vacation, my Nikon D4s is stone dead. It hasn't been used for weeks. It gets electricity so the battery works, but nothing else works. Can I have locked it somehow? Strange ???

    How can you tell the battery is working if it's totally dead?

    I changed memory card and now it works again. A brand new Extreme CF PRO 64gb. It completety locked the camera. I haven't experienced this before. Does anyone know what it is?

    Was the card formatted in the camera before it locked?

    I am not 100% sure it was formatted with that camera. But the card didn't want to format in the camera when I tried. I tried three other CF-cards too and they didn't want to format either (The XQD-Card works). There might be something wrong with the pins in the camera? Maybe they can't read the cards?

    Cards have to be formatted in the camera they are being used in. But it sounds like you might have problems

    I move cards around to different cameras all the time, and never reformat them. Even moving between a Sony and a Nikon. Never had any trouble with cards.

    Sounds like your CF card bay is damaged . Send it to Nikon.

    Same here: Nikon, Leica, Canon... 20+ cameras in total. I don't think I have ever formatted a memory card, it is a waste of time.
