I bought a D7000 a couple of months ago together with my gf, and we couldn't couldn't be happier with the camera. We already have quite a few amazing pics! Unfortunately, we just encountered our first issue with the D7000. I thought I would throw it out there to see if anyone had anything similar happen...
While in the middle of taking some pictures, all of a sudden, after hitting the "play" button to review an image, the display went funny: dark background (black) with various patterns of light vertical lines. The lines seem to change somewhat when I hit the wheel as I normally would while scrolling through the menu. Everything else still works. It seems like a technical issue with the display or some connectors to the display. In other words, it seems like the camera is actually scrolling through the pictures or menus, but the display is showing just vertical lines.
We take great care of the camera, and the problem happened literally from one image to the next while shooting a few pics of our friends. The camera has never been dropped, wet, etc., etc. etc.
Anyone have anything similar happen to them? We're gonna take it to the service center this week as it's still under warranty. Hopefully, it will get resolved before our next planned trip in 2 weeks (fingers crossed). The funny thing was that we were just showing our friends what a great camera we bought when it happened... guess that's what we get for bragging. ;-)
