    I'm guessing that's light reflecting off the sensor.

    Howdy and welcome to Nikonites! Unfortunately, it's not under better circumstances.

    As others have pointed out, I would expect this to be a pricey repair and something that should be done by a Nikon authorized shop. I'd estimate it in the ~$500 range, but a lot depends on what other damage may be there that isn't easily shown.

    Good luck regardless, and please keep us posted on the progress!

    Welcome to the forum. Good luck on the repairs. At ~$400-500 for repair, I'm not sure the camera would be worth that cost unless it is your special one.

    No activity from the OP since this thread was created so I would guess they have moved on. There have been a rash of one post wonders of late with strange problems who post and you never hear from them again.

    Live View or movie mode would open the shutter, burning a hole in the sensor. The Mirror Up option is the only way I can decipher this to have happened (but which seems less likely?) What am I missing?
    Yes, the mirror up must have been selected. shutter would have been visible to sun. Sensor wouldnt get burnt unless set to slow shutter speed. My guess is he let it sit pointing at sun for a long time and without filters. I did a test with just my zoom lens with and without filters pointing at the sun. It did get hot without filters on after a short period of time. To burn a spot must have been several minutes.

    Welcome! Keep in mind the cost may be very close to what the camera is currently worth.
