    Howdy and welcome to Nikonites, qwerty!

    I wouldn't say it's a known problem ... definitely not expected. Is there a lens attached?

    First off welcome to the forum. Things to do before moving on.
    Remove the battery and leave it out for a few minutes before putting it back in. Now try to see it it is working.
    Make sure the SD card is inserted and was formated in the camera.
    Make sure the lens is on and in place. Did it click when you installed it.
    Last thing I can suggest is to do a full reset on the camera

    Restoring Nikon D7200 to its default settings, just hold down the [ISO button] button and the [+/- Exposure Compensation button] together, until the control panel turns off briefly while the camera resets itself to the factory default settings.

    Be sure to let us know if this helps.

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.

    I found this on the internet and it is worth checking.

    "Buttons on the back of the camera not working, LCD monitor not working. I just had the same problem but I noticed that my "Delete" button was actually stuck down. I must have pushed it and it didn't pop back up. I pried it a little to get it back up and now everything works! Check your buttons, all of them and make sure they aren't stuck. I'm so glad that my camera is working and I really wanted to let everyone know. Now I have a working camera.

    Other reports of similar issues have no fixes reported.

    Hi QWERTY500, i am having a similar problem only it is with the qual and iso buttons. I have tried every imaginable thing and consulted with Nikon (and Nikonites)with the final suggestion being "mail it in". I wondered if you went that route or found another solution?

    The OP hasn't had any activity since the day he/she registered. Maybe qwerty500 will come back some day.

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

    Re: HELP Play and Menu buttons not working

    Thank you thank you thank you... Stopped by the camera store to get my D3200 fixed. I could take shots and view them for a few seconds. Then download and view them. But none of the buttons on the camera would work. Couldn't view, delete, change settings etc. Staff had never seen the problem before. Was told if they sent it in, they would only call me if it was over $250.00 to repair. Otherwise they would go ahead and fix it. I left. I went to Google University and saw this post describing the exact same problem as mine and read your solution. I found the stuck button, fixed it and voila... works as it should. You just saved me money and frustration.

    Re: HELP Play and Menu buttons not working

    I am having the same problem with my D3200. I can take pictures, and even press the Lv button and see and take the pictures through the screen, but besides this all the buttons are not working. Also, when I take a picture it does not flash in the screen like other people say, I just hear the sound of taking it and it's saved to the card. None of my buttons are stuck... But the button to remove the objective is doing something weird, I am afraid my problem is there. The screen always says Flash mode except when I press that button really hard (then I think the camera works normally again). Also, when I remove the objective the camera does not detect it (or at least the screen does not output a message about it). What should I do?
