D5300 "Metering Malfunction Detected"

03 July 2020 - 10:36 AM

Hello,

 

I have a D5300 which is about 6 months old, but is a "Nikon Refurbished" model and so is out of warranty.

 

It hasn't bee dropped or subject to moisture.  When I turned it on yesterday it displayed a message saying:

 

"Metering Malfunction Detected.  Contact a Nikon-Authorized service representative."

 

I plan to do that, but figured I would start here and see if anyone had run into this issue and might have some advice.

 

The camera will now only take a picture in manual mode and I mainly do sports photography so that is not very useful.

 

Thank you,

 

Mike
