When i take a "standard" picture the camera tunes up the light so much that I can´t see anything on the picture it almost looks like a blank white page.

Flash problem So, I set the camera to 'Flash On'. I take a picture and the flash goes off for about a quick second. I look at the picture and it's nothing but a black background, sometimes white where I can only slightly see the object I took the picture of. What's wrong with my camera? This only happens sometimes, by the way. Sometimes I take a picture and everything's normal.

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is.... I'm taking pictures at my sons wrestling events and I can't get it to take clear pictures. If i put it on sports it's one of the worst with blurriness. I don't know a good setting for this?

My Z1 suddenly started having white lines across the photos I take. Some are narrow and some wider, virtually wiping out the image. I thought it might be the memory card but it happens with a different one too. Might it be the battery? There is no indication that the battery is low. What else can it be? The camera is about 3 years old and this just started last summer. I can send you a picture to demonstrate the issue.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, Initially, this problem on a Z1 indicates a developing fault in the CCD lens. If not attended to professionally, it might lead to bigger problems in the very near future.Just a start, do postba ... Digital Cameras
