    As of a few nights ago, information remains on the LCD display of my D7000 even after I switch it to "Off". This happens (estimate) 3/5 times, and sometimes will turn completely off (only show me the remaining pictures on my card) after a while. If I hold down the shutter (after doing this), it shows me the remaining pictures in the queue (r41 or so), but will not take a picture. I also cannot browse the menu, but I can change the aperture / shutter. Help? I am afraid this will drain my battery. Only attachment I have had on it was an MB-D11 with the standard En-El15 battery.


    Thanks!

    The LCD on the top?

    That's normal.


    Perhaps you can't take a photo because, as you stated, you've turned the camera off.

    Maybe the on/off switch isn't really turning the camera off.

    Is it just the top LCD?

    When I power mine off it hesitates 2-3 seconds then shuts all the readings down EXCEPT the number of pics left on the card, and the fact the memory card is present in slot 2.

    Are you shutting it down after firing off a bunch of frames? You can turn the camera off, but I don't think it will actually turn off until the buffer clears. Of course, once enough of the buffer is available, it should fire the shutter.

    Unless you are using Class -3 cards.

    I don't even have to shoot a picture for it to happen; I am using 2 SanDisk Extreme 16GBs.

    Mine normally does that, but recently it started doing this; what happens is, I turn it off, and the LCD looks exactly the same as it does when it is powered on.

    Yes.

    The LCD screen will drain your battery completely in as little as 658 days!!! So definitely, send it in for a warranty repair and be prepared to be without the camera for 10 days. Otherwise, charge the battery once every 90 days or so, and you'll be good to go, 24/7. [wink]

    Edit: Derrel's post at the same makes more sense than mine. As usual [​IMG]
