Remove the battery, memory card and lens (use the body cap to protect the mirror area). Switch the camera ON. Allow it to sit idle for 1 hour. Switch the camera off. Insert the battery & memory card and remount the lens and try it out. If normal operation is not restored then the main circuit board has a faulty component. Since this is a new body, you should be able to return it to the "point of purchase" for a replacement or refund. If not please contact Nikon, using the information at the link below, for new camera warranty service. http://www.europe-nikon.com/en_GB/service_support/Repair+Centre/Support_Send_Repair.page? Please keep in mind that my diagnosis & solutions provided are directly dependent on the accuracy of your description of the problem. As with any "do it yourself" fixes, success is a "team effort", since I can't see or touch the camera, and relies on the customer's manual dexterity and ability to follow the instructions well. If you require additional information, please use the Reply to ExpertTab to contact me. Click the ratings only after our exchange iscomplete and you are satisfied. If you are satisfied that my answer is accurate or solves your issue, please do not forget to rate my answer OK, Good or Excellent. Thank you
