I have a problem with my D810. Now when I shoot a few pics with it, the battery indicator says I don't have a charge and won't let me take more pics. I check the battery info and it says the battery is fully charged, which I know it is. I take the battery out of the camera and reinsert it and it works for a few pics, then says I don't have a charge again. I have checked the batteries and they are the ones labeled Li-ion 20, so I know they aren't the ones that need replacing. Anyone else had this problem? Do I need to send it in? Thanks, Jeff

UPDATE: I did have the 200-500 mounted on my D810 during this problem. I just changed lenses so my 24-120 is now on the D810 and everything seems to be working fine. Could this battery problem be a lens compatibility issue?

Sounds like something to ask Nikon.

Thanks, Dennis.

Problem Solved (I hope): I remounted my 200-500 on my D810 and everything seems to be back to normal now. I guess the lens wasn't quite seated or something when I was having the battery issues. I don't know why that would affect the battery, but I'm glad the problem has gone away.

Glad that you appear to have solved the problem, Jeff.  My heart skipped a beat or two, but I'm breathing a sigh of relief.

 

Like Herman and Peter, I've never had that problem.  Knock on wood!  :)

Almost all of my "random" issues with a camera have been solved by taking out the battery and remounting the lens. Put the battery back and things work again. It seems to be one or the other so I just kill 2 birds with one stone... (-:}
