If you ever have any repair work done on your camera body, be sure to check your camera's date stamp when you get it back. It just might have been reset to the factory default...

After all, you wouldn't want to miss a challenge or worse, get dq'ed ;-)

Yup.
That happened to me. DQd a 7+ image.

Be forewarned.

They change all sorts of things. I was given a refurbished camera in exchange for one they no longer made parts for. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get my wide angle shots with my wide angle camera.

A full frame camera.

They'd set it to crop frame.

I upgraded firmware on a Nikon D810 and went on a workshop. Incredibly frustrated with nighttime photography until I noticed that AutoISO was on, which I never do. SO, yes, they probably reset to factory default as SOP in a repair shop.
