Having problems with your Nikon D1X Digital Camera ?

Good day, I have a Nikon D1X. The shutter button when slightly depressed should engage the AF in the lens. The lens is a Tamron. The camera Auto Focuses fine when you press either of the two AF buttons on the rear of the camera body. Is there somewhere in the menu that controls this. Thanks, John


Answers :

You are correct, there is a setting. Press Monitor, then Menu to get to the menu; go to the thitd menu option (looks like a pencil), select option 4 (AF Activation) and set it to ON (Shutter/AF ON). This will solve your problem.

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black. Tried turning on w/o SD card

I have a D5000 camera w/ kit lens VR 55-200, less than a year old. Recently and only occasionally what is happening is when I press the shutter release button, the lens won't focus, it won't move in or out and it makes a odd noise, not the usual lens motor noise, but an odd squeaking noise, like it's trying to move but is stuck. The only way to correct it is to either shut the camera off and turn it back on again, or switch to manual focus, then back to auto. The battery is full, so it's not

I have a Nikon D80 with an 18-135mmNikkor lens.  It's about two months old.   Yesterday I was outside, on a snowy day,and a couple of times, I pressed the shutter release button and it would not take a picture.  I turned it on and off a couple of times, and my son looked at it and "pressed a couple of buttons", and then it worked.  This happened about three times.  I  wondered if it was because the camera was cold.  However, it was a beautiful wintery day - about 30 degrees.     Tonight, my nie


I suggest pointing the camera to an image which has more contrast as opposed to pointing it into a clear blue sky which has no clouds at all. the AF might have some trouble looking for cue to focus. go manual focusing and see the difference. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

My Nikon D3 is not firing when either of the shutter release buttons are pressed when the lens is attached. Both buttons fire when there is no lens attached. I have cleaned the contacts and the battery and the battery contacts. i have tried the lenses on other cameras and theyre fine.


Do the lenses auto focus on the D3? If not, try cleaning the contacts on the camera body with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. ... Nikon D3 Digital Camera

The camera was working fine until I purchased a pack of kodak rechargeable batteries. After a week or so of using them my camera stop coming on when I would press the power button, it would make this beeping noise and the lens wouldn't extend. After continuously pressing the power button I got it to come on but again the lens did not extend and the screen was frozen. Why am I having this problem and how can I fix it?

I put my memory card into my Kodak EasyShare C143 digital camera. I press the review button, but all that comes up is that the file is 'Unrecognised'. One out of the three pictures is unprotected, but the other two are protected. When I try to delete the unprotected picture, it doesn't work. When I try to 'Unprotect' the protected pictures, it doesn't work either. Please help and I am grateful for any suggestions. :) Thanks.


It sounds as if the card was not formatted for the camera before it was put to use. My suggestion is that you attempt to download the images that you do have to the computer, then format the memory card. Always format a new card and after each time y ... Digital Cameras

My Canon Powereshot 200SX IS does not start properly. Display comes on but the lens stays closed inside and a led blinks. After a while display turns black, a beep comes on and the white text says: there is an error, try to start again. Starting it again brings exactly the same situation. Loosing the battery does not help either. Camera seems not to react to any control buttons. There has not been any any obvious reason for this, no falling onto the ground or any other impact.

Brand new (one hour old) Canon Powershot A490 looks like it has a software bug. All the buttons used to work but now no button responds except fpr the left button when one of the two bottom buttons (camera and menu) is pressed. Pressing one of the latter then pressing the left button constantly cycles through the menus.
