Even though you may find that the time displayed is correct, part of the set up requires the user to go to the set up menu and set the time in order to make the little clock blinky go away. This was shock to several of use when we first picked up our D3’s in December (posted on this long ago).

James ,

You need to set the time in the menu see page 40 in the manual, see page 408 in the manual for the error message.

Bruce.

Replacing the Clock Battery

The camera clock is powered by a CR1616 lithium battery with a life

of about two years. If the B icon is displayed in the top control

panel while the standby timer is on, the battery is running low and

needs to be replaced. When the battery is exhausted, the B icon

will flash while the standby timer is on. Photographs can still be

taken but will not be stamped with the correct time

Just remember to reset your Time Zone, Hour Min, Sec and Daylight Savings after you change the Battery. For some reason, at first I did not do this and thought there was a issue with the camera. Thankfully see the above link by way of the OP Response for the Manual for D5 and replacing Clock Battery.
