    Yes, I have.

    I've tried with no grip & different standard (Nikon label) batteries.
    I've tried with grip and various batteries in the body.

    I want to delete my input as much as possible (see Z7).

    After talking to Nikon support, we agreed that it should go in for evaluation.

    When I went to prepare it for shipping back to Nikon, (just like taking a car t the shop) mysteriously I could not get the flashing to occur. I tried & tried, but could not. I felt like sending it in w/o being to reproduce the condition would be of little value, so I did not send it.

    So far, it has not happened again. As time passes, I am gaining confidence in the body.

    Thanks for asking!

    I am reminded of the old FAR SIDE cartoon where a scientist in a white lab coat is staring at a chalk board covered with mathematical equations and in the bottom right corner of the board you see "AND THEN A MIRACLE OCCURS"

    Update: The blinking light returned. This time, I video taped the phenomenon (knowing it will probably not occur when it gets to the "hospital") and sent the body in for repair.

    I'll let ya know what they find.

    Update 2: I got my D850 back today. In addition to the normal clean, adjust, testing, they replaced the "Image Control PCB".

    Hopefully I'll be in great shape now.

    How is your D850 doing after the Image Control PCB replacement?

    Asking as mine is on a returned visit with Nikon Support for the blinking green light. Received back yesterday and out of the box it was happening again. They were very helpful on the phone and already sent back to them for additional repairs. Image Control PCB wasn’t replaced, however they originally replaced two other parts.

    Fingers-crossed and hope to hear how you are making out as you have had it back for a few months now. Thanks!

    Sorry for the slow response Adam.

    The repair they did on my D850 resolved the issue. In my case, the body is performing as well or better than before I sent it in.
