My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!
Time for some "tough love"...suggest you buy one of the new Pentax point-and-shoots that are especially made for people who continually drop their cameras. This one can be dropped from 3 feet and still work. Leave the good DSLRs to the rest of us. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
I use my Nikon D50 for work and I am now required to have a date on all my pictures. Does the Nikon D50 have a facility to do this? If so how is it done?
All digital pictures include Exif Data which shows when the picture was taken and using what camera. \015\012Most photo edit programs like Picasa etc will show this data very readily.\015\012The times of printing a date onto the photo are gone, thoug ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Nikon D50 I have been reading through Fixya to try and find a similar problem. I have a Nikon D50 and have been using it with no problems for over a year. However, now when I try to take photos in AF, nothing happens. It locks up. So, I have to try to take photos in manual. Some come out OK and others not. Very frustrating as I missed lots of xmas pics. When I hit the AF-L button, it seems to work in AF mode. Any suggestions?? firstname.lastname@example.org

I have Windows XP - does Canon SD850IS 8 MP w/4X Optical work on my computer - I read in some of the specs that it only worked on Windows VISTA. If that is correct, which ELPH do you suggest I get for XP? I have a NIKON D50 SLR now but looking for one to carry in my purse every day - I'm always finding photo opportunities. Thanks - Nell

On my D50 the COMMAND DIAL has stopped working so shutter and apertrure cannot be set - but - normal photographs cxan be taken using 'AUTO' or MODE settings on the MODE DIAL. Only P,A,S,M modes cannot be used. Otherwise all functions of the camera work well and photo results are good. The camera has NOT been dropped or jarred.

I have a Nikon D40, which I recently dropped. :( Camera seemed okay, but then I noticed later that the 18-55 lens was being less than cooperative. It now is stuck on 55 adn will not zoom out. It still focuses (manually & automatically). My other lens, which was not on the camera at the time of the drop, works perfectly fine. Any suggestions on what could be wrong or how to fix it?
It sound like the lens zoom has broken.If other lens is ok and this lens still focuses automatically the conection is working.Sorry to bring the bad news but it may cost less to get a new lens than to get it fixed.Someon ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
SAME PROBLEM I didn't drop S60 or hit anything. When turn on the power, a motor vibration noise will be heard. Turn it off and turn it on again may get it work luckily. The repair center said the belt is not on the motor gear and asked $100 repair charge even it is still in warranty. Seems Nikon S60 has potential quality problem here. There is anyone has same problem here? We may collect such information to claim Nikon to get our right!
If it is still under warranty, you might inform Nikon that if they refuse to fix an obvious defect, you are prepared to notify the Better Business Bureau, your State Attorney General, and some of the popular photography magazines plus anyone else you ... Nikon COOLPIX S60 Digital Camera
Hello I have a nikon coolpix s7c that i bought in the usa about 2yrs ago i dropped it it does every thing but take photoes or film anything. i think the shutter must be stuck. bought anotherone off ebay but it does not work as well as the usa one ie photos not as sharp. is it possible to get the usa one working?
Yes, but its not somehing you're going to be able to do without explicit knowledge - as there are 200 pieces in the shutter alon that must be disassembled properly in tight tolerances - and then faulty parts replaced.I recommend taking th ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
Hi there, I have a nikon D50 camera and the inbuilt flash unit does not work any more.... it pops up in dark conditions bu tthen fails to fire. The camera will adjust the shutter speed as if the flash was turned off, and the flash doesn't work in any flash mode or any function mode. Could it be the bulb perhaps? I have reset the camera as well to no avail. please help! thanks :)
Hello, and welcome to Fixya.. This is a very common and known issue with the D50 camera by Nikon. Some buyers flash only works once and then quits. Its due to the speed of which the flash pops up, it literally breaks ... Digital Cameras
Nikon Coolpix L18 camera LCD screen only shows jumpy lines of images. Took a test picture and viewed through a card reader to find that it is recording images, so the problem is just in the screen. (Also installed fresh batteries.) Camera has been working faithfully on a regular basis. Worked just fine a few days ago. Hasn't been dropped or suffered any 'trauma'.
Hi,\015\012\015\012The fact that the screen is displaying an image even though it is a distorted one of lines in screen indicates that the screen is receiving a signal. This points to a fault with the screen itself and not the camera. ... Digital Cameras
I have a Nikon D40X camera with two lenses - one is 18-55 and the other is 55-200. Unfortunately, when I was at a wedding rehearsal, my 55-200 lens dropped off the pew on to the ground. It was not on the camera at the time and it has not worked properly ever since. My camera works properly with the 18-55 lens. Is there anything that can be done to fix it? Essentially, the camera can still focus, in and out, but when I try and push the button down, to take a picture, it just continues to refocus
It is broken - either you wear the cost and replace it, or send it to a lens specialist and have it reset. Without seeing it, it is impossible to ascertain the condition. Most lens repairers will give you a quote for only a few dollars.\015\012 ... Nikon D40X Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
Hi, i just dropped my nikon digital camera and it's stopped working! when i switch it on the camera computer does not work - what can i do??
You've likely cracked the board inside. DSLR's do not take lightly to drops as most everything inside of them is hard mounted to the frame which is mounted to the casing so when any physical damage is experienced it transfers to the weakest part. Alm ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

Hi, My daughter (12 years old) saved her money and bought a Nikon Coolpix L11 camera (SN# 34031249)from Target 8 months ago. She dropped it resulting in the following: - A silver round lens front came off (we have it) - A black lens ring with hole came off (we have it) - The interior lens extension looks tilted. - The screen says "lens error" She said it worked some at first, but had a line across it (I'm not sure if she meant the viewer or the picture) Target wouldnt ta
