MB-D80 problem


Recommended Posts

<p>I got a MB-D80 grip as a birthday present recently. Feels good and all controls seem to be exactly where I want them.<br>

There is - however - a strange problem with the unit and that is when I tighten the screw so that the grip is firmly connected to the camera (A D-90) the camera signals that it does not have a battery.<br>

When I loosen the knop about one and a quarter turns it all works - but feels a little bit rickety.<br>

I would expect poor electrical connection to be caused by the grip being too loose and not by it being firmly connected to the camera body.<br>

And yes - I have thorougly cleaned all contacts. Did not help.<br>

Ideas? Similar experience?</p>

<p>Did some Google searching for you and turned up this thread:</p>

<p>Sounds like the middle pin in the battery compartment of your D90 is not lined up properly. There are some pictures that should help show you. Seems to be a problem for a few people. Mine worked fine - I have the same setup MB-D80 on a D90.</p>
