i've got problems with my 995 similar to what's stated here. i also have a post in the thread '995 help'. there was also a couple of folks in that thread that had the same problem ie: the screen going dark but able to get intermittent correction by light pressure on the case under the flash mount. my problem first was noticed when i attempted to use the flash. possible crack in the circuit board? what is interesting in all of these problems is the cameras tend to be 3 to 3.5 years old or so. this must be a known problem to nikon but when i queried them they said no known problems. ?? what to do?
