[-E-] on top of lcd screen


New member
Just bought a used Nikon d810 and there is a [-E-] icon that appears at the top of the lcd screen even with the power turned off. What is it and how do I fix it?

Like was said, install a memory card and you will see a number instead which will indicate about how many pictures you can take on that card, It is the nature of the cameras to always display that much whether on or off. I asked the same type of question when I got my first Nikon. Ha!

Welcome to the forum, by-the-way.
