I have a Nikon L19 Coolpix camera which I bought at Carrefour in Cartaya, Spain. When I came to download my photo's from the camera to the computer I found the cable supplied in the box with the camera, does not fit in to the camera. I have taken this back to Carrefour and they gave me another cable, but when I returned home I found it is for a Kodak camera. Should this work for my Nikon L19, as I can't get it to??


The USB cables supplied with digital cameras are almost all miniUSB to standard USB. The small connector on the cable fits into the camera, but it must be oriented a certain way. If you flip the small end the wrong direction, it won't fit. And someti ... Nikon COOLPIX L19 Digital Camera

Nikon D100 Hi. Out of the clear blue my af lens doesn't work. No motor sound. Can use manually. Is there a motor in the lens that needs replacing? I think its only 4 years old (inhered camera). Nikon AF 70-300mm. I don't really have the money to go to camera store without indications of what I need. How costly is the motor? Also there is no light on the internal view box. Can you help? Thanks, Mary Louisville, KY


If the lens is AF (not AF-S) there is no motor in the lens. A motor in the camera turns a screw in the lens mount to focus it. If it is easy to turn it manually, my first recommendation would be to check that you didn't accidentally bump the focus ... Nikon D100 Digital Camera

There's some dust spots in my pictures with my Nikon D80. I have sent it for sensor cleaning at Nikon centre but seems that the spots cannot be removed as the technician says it's hidden underneath/behind the sensor. I am not sure how true it is or the technician is just plain lazy because I had to tell him where the spots were 3 times before he got the remove most of them. The spots are not visible if I don't scrutinise the pictures though but it sure is irritating knowing there are 1 more spec


I think the problem is with the technician. I suggest you talk to the manager and ask for another technician to help you with this problem. I do not recommend trying to clean the sensor yourself as you may cause more harm than good. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
