I bought my camera today from ebay and I do not have a battery to switch it on and check. I attached my 18-135 mm lens to the camera. I tried to look through the viewfinder and I cant see a thing. Everything from the viewfinder looks grayish and blurry. I do not have battery right now to check the camera when it's on and neither I can restore the camera to its default factory settings. Can you please tell me if there is something wrong with the camera or if it's a usual thing for Nikon D80 and a


Hi.Re: "Everything from the viewfinder looks grayish and blurry."Ensure that the problem is not the CCD sensor. A faulty CCD sensor will tipically return a grayish or purple-toned blurred image. Kind of shadows-like. If you ha ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Crash I greatly enjoyed the D70 until it suddenly stopped taking pictures. I got the dreaded ERR message. WE tried different batteries, lenses, cards, etc., but to no avail. This is a real bummer. I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off! Plastic.A couple of years ago, the self-timer stopped working and Nikon had to replace the software circuits. (The warranty had run out.)


The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Che ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )


Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Dead Nikon D50 in mint condition... Changed lenses with the power off. Powered back on and no LCD, or any actions at all. Flash will not pop up, no shutter noise, no auto focus. No top menu, no back menu. Did the double green button reset and the hard (hole in the bottom of the camera) resets while both on and off, with and without batteries, with and without SD card and every combination. Tried different lenses, also without a lens. Tried with two additional Nikon brand, fully charged batteries

Battery Problem When fully charged the camera will work for a few hours. It can be switched off annd back on again and will run with no little loss of charge after 8 hours or so. If a fully charged battery is fitted but is not turned on the camera will not even switch on after about 15 hours - the battery is totally run down. New batteries have been used but no difference is found. This has happened from new. It was returned to Nikon UK's service department with a covering letter trying to

Take the lens off and look at the front of the camera body...on the left side ( 9 0'clock position ) is the stop down lever. Check if it looks bent to the side. It's pretty flimsy and can get bent out of shape. The top of that lever needs to be ho ... Digital Cameras

Power issues. Just recently I've encountered a problem with my camera. After plugging it into my computer (And not noticing the power surge notification on the desktop while doing so). It locked up and powered itself off. I tried turning it back on, and it turned on for a split second then shut off without retracting the lense. I switched batteries and it retracted the lense, but I tried powering it on and the lense only came halfway out and it powered off. I've tried 4 fresh sets of batteries a

A Canon A570IS will power on and and everything works with external power (3.5-3.7V, 2A. 3rd party) but is dead with batteries (two fresh alkaline or NIMH AAs). I have used parts (from junk 570s) and have replaced the main board, button board, flexicable that includes on/off switch & shutter, leds, etc.. Again, lens, flash, storage, LCD, etc. work with external power, but not with batteries. I am at a loss. Any suggestions?


Since the external power works, we need to know, first off, if the battery terminals have continuity with the external power supply contacts. That will tell us an important part of this puzzle. The one hard thing about this problem, is that what ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Canon eos 450d. When switched on, the display does not show ie shutter speed, battery level, iso etc etc. It works fine when the auto display is disabled and can be switched on and off using the disp button on the camera body but will not come on when it is enabled.


Check whether there is anything obstructing the range sensor just above the rear LCD. The sensor could be thinking that your face is near, thus turning off the display. Also, you should be able to use the Disp button even in auto display mode, which ... Canon EOS 450D + EF 75-300mm lens Digital Camera

When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S70 camera on it says battery exhausted. I thought that meant the battery was dead. I just charged it overnight & it now still says the same thing. I took the battery out & put it back in & now it doesn't say anything the yellow light just flashes. Any assistance would be great. Never been mishandled, dropped, etc. It's in great condition & stays in the case unless used.

The viewfinder of my Nikon D80 is grayish and blurry when it's off. I cant see a thing when I tried to use my 18-135 mm lens. I don't have a battery to reset it to its factory default settings. Do you think there's something wrong with the camera or the viewfinder is always blurry and grayish when it's off. I have owned D40 earlier and I could play around with the viewfinder even when the camera was off.

Nikon Coolpix 8800 VR - changed memory card (last thing I did) and the zoom lense stopped half way. It won't retract, in fact there is no motor sounds, lights displays or anything working. Charged all batteries I own and tried each of them with no success. Is there another "well hidden" battery that I need to change? OR has it officially died??

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor
