I have a Nikon D-700 I downloaded the firmware version 1.04/1.03 to a formatted card with the .bin file but when I go to the menu to update, I have the yes button and I can see the previous and newer firmware versions but the menu will not allow me to select it. I am stuck in the yes bar and it will not go any further. Is the camera damaged or is there another way to update this?

  • Just wondered if you actually formatted the card on the camera first and not via a computer.Card needs format via camera only.Then add the bin file.

  • I formatted by camera then copied the .bin file and I tried formatting on the computer (FAT32) and neither method worked. Jan 28, 2019 at 16:34
  • The right hand side selector does work for other menu options, just not in the firmware upgrade options Jan 28, 2019 at 18:02

You should not be pressing the selector button. It's asking you to press the OK button, and that is at the bottom left.

  • Formatting cards works the same way, you can click the select until the last step, then you have to click OK. Prevents you from mindlessly clicking and reformatting a card.

enter image description hereThat's correct. It's showing you the current and new firmware.

[!Here is what my screen looks like. When I depress the select button, nothing happens. I can't select the version, It is stuck at yes and won't go any further.

There is no selection other than YES, do the upgrade.
