Having problems with your Nikon D100 Digital Camera ?

Getting blue spots on longer exposed images?

\015 Hey everyone,\015\012\015\012When i expose my images usign the D100 at night, for say 1.5 seconds exposure, some blue dots appear on the frames. For just small exposures this is fine and i can photoshop them out because there isn't many of them. But when I make a longer exposure on BULB and so on more bluespots appear, almost as if its noise adding to the picture, but iwouldnt expect this sort of noise with a digital SLR camera?! \015\012\015\012I was wondering if I needed to get the CCD professionally cleaned or something. I had it recently blow-cleaned and cleaned with that 'pen cleaner' item that you can use for cleaning the CCD. \015\012\015\012Any advice would be much appreciated!\015\012\015\012Thanks very much in advance,\015\012\015\012Niall\015

I have Image Expert 1.8.5 that was supplied with my Toshiba camera (that I no longer use). Recently the program offered to compress my files (or at least that's what I thought I was being offered). After the operation, the folder "image exepert images" is now displayed in blue. When I tried to back up these files to a flash drive, I kept getting the message: "Cannot create or replace Image Expert Images. Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path and file name."

We use a Nikon D200 to do child portraiture in preschools and day care centers. Our original camera started turning some images blue a couple weeks ago then quit working altogether. I bought a barely used D200 online and went back to work and I am getting images in either magenta or blue. What could cause this?


Hello. The infrared blocking filter is on overload possibly due to the lighting in the rooms where you are working. Fluorescent lighting is often the culprit. Take your camera into a good camera shop and try some of their infrared filters that fit ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

Suddenly the pictures I take with my Lumix DMC-ZS3 have dark, shadowy, relatively circular spots on them. The spots are more noticeable when I zoom in. The spots are always in the same places on my images. This is my favorite camera of all time and I very distressed over this issue. I suspect dust has collected somewhere inside the lens where I can not get at it. I have gently cleaned the outside surface of the lens and have blown it off with compressed air but the problem persists, What c

I have a Samsung digital camcorder. When I turn it on it takes longer than normal and I do not get an image on the screen. The screen gets light, and a horizontal line repeatedly comes down from the top. It emits a ringing sound.

My Olympus FE-290 hit the floor I can't get an image when I turn it on. I was able to put the pictures that were on the card onto the computer. When I came to the spot that I dropped it the next pictures(?) were just a black square on the computer. About 4 or 5 of them that I had tried to take a picture after it dropped. I can't get the last picture taken either. Jenny

My Canon 1D MkII suddenly started capturing images completely black. File sizes are smaller 2, the black images are only 2mb. Could it be possible the data is no longer getting recorded to the memory card? I've tried different cards


The first thought I had come to mind was the shutter has failed but, the Canon 1D MK II shutter is capable of 150,000 actuation. If you feel this is not possible then another thing you may want to look into is the memory card needing to be cleared of ... Canon EOS-1D Mark II Digital Camera

Black-out I've had my camera for about six months now, since February. It's worked fine, and I never had a problem, until about two weeks ago. Now, when I turn it on, all I see is black. If shaken it shows an image for about two seconds, before it goes black again. Taking pictures doesn't do anything, it's still black. Sometimes I can get an image, but it's grainy and only shows up as blue with light on the main object. It's worked fine up until now. I've changed the batteries a few times, but i

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,

This is more than likely a shadow from your lens. The on-camera flash is in a fairly low position, and I am able to duplicate your description when using my D200 on-camera flash and a physically longer lens- in my case a 28-70 F2.8 lens. Using a hot- ... Digital Cameras

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p
