NIKON D100 LCD DISPLAY FLASHING CHA ERROR WITH ANY CF 1 GIG

\015 I HAVE TRIED 3 CF CARDS NOW 2 NEW 1 GIG AND A 2 GIG, WHICH WORK IN OTHER CAMERAS, LCD ON TOP SHOWS "CHA" ON SOLID WHEN CAMERA IS OFF, FLASHES WHEN CAMERA IS ON, HAS NEWLY CHARGED BATT, CHECKED PINS IN CF SLOT, ALL APPEAR UP AND STRAIGHT, NOT SURE OF SOFTWARE VERSION OR HOW TO CHECK, NOTHING IN MANUAL TELLS ME WHAT TO DO, CAN THIS BE FIXED??? CAMERA APPEARS TO FORMAT THE CARD BUT NO JOY! please reply, thanks!!\015

Answers :

I had the same problem and thought I had looked closely at the pins in CF slot but after finally taking it to a repair shop, the tech showed me a bent pin. It really wasn't that apparent first time around. He told me its a common problem as long as they use the CF cards. I had the pins replaced and my D100 is working great. Best of luck.
The CHA problem with the Nikon D100 is the compression board, must be replace with a new part


price to replaced this board parts,labor and return shipping $ 117.50 with 90 days warranty.

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor
