Having problems with your Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera ?

Nikon D200 has become nearly impossible to grab images

\015 Recently my D200 began exhibiting problems, which have developed to the point that the camera has become mostly unreliable. First symptom was it began freezing while shooting in Continuous High mode. Then, the top panel battery meter began showing the batteries were drained (I'm using the MBD200 battery grip), then the meter returned to a more normal state, showing more life in the batteries. This developed to the state that nearly every attempt to take a picture failed. The shutter freezes open, and after a few seconds lag time, a second depression of the shutter release button closes the shutter, but no picture is recorded.\015

Answers :

False low-battery warnings, focusing, and metering problems may be the result of poor contact between the body and certain lenses. Try removing your lens and thoroughly cleaning the contacts. I would recommend using a contact cleaner, but rubbing alcohol will also work. Remember that the whole ring needs to be cleaned. If that does not work, try scraping the battery contacts.

Tokina AT-X PRO 28-80mm 1:2.8 lens has recently developed a problem when mounted on my Nikon D200. The images are way too dark and my only way to obtain usable images is to bracket heavily. This lens has worked flawlessly on film Nikons and, until recently, worked flawlessly on the D200. I am now also having AF problems with the lens. When I attach any of my Nikon brand lenses - no problems. Can you help? I really love this lens.

I have this lens also but with a canon mount and loved it to death when i had film. I started to use it on the digital and like your experience it worked well for a while then started to produce faulty registered photos.. too dark and some too light. ... Digital Cameras

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.

Hi there I have a Moultrie MFH I 40 camera and the Info Strip has degraded from a loss of 25% of the image (which was still readable) to less than 50% of the image, which means it is now nearly impossible to read the set up instructions and settings. The batteries are good. Can I reformat this camera? I use a Macbook Pro. I have been using this on a trail through a period of cold weather in the Highlands of Scotland.

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck

Your boyfriend is probably right, and it makes sense, if you can't change the f-stops. \015\012The following blog on Flickr might help you:\015\012 ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera
