Top displays tend not to last for ever.
Based on a repair I had done about 2 years ago Nikon UK might be able to repair it for about 175.
Would you be happy to use it if the top display ceases to function altogether?

I've noticed the number "10" on some recent items of kit. Is that because there's a risk of "tin whiskers" forming after a decade? Presumably they do now use the dreaded lead-free solder?

No, it of course isn't acceptable Wink

Hm... Unfortunately, I don't know anything about this problem. I am not a really good technician, if you asked for my opinion of course. Smile

Thanks to all answered!
