Having problems with your Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera ?

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?


Answers :

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 over the lens. Joe

I've just bought a vistaquest FS-501 Scanner. I don't have an sd card for it. I've plugged it into my xp pc (using the usb cable supplied) after installing the driver. Now the led light comes on when I open the cover but when I insert some film into the scanner no image is displayed on the screen. Does it have to have an sd card in it to make it work?the screen does work when it's first turned on but then goes off and it does matter which buttons I press it won't display the images???


Tweak the USB cable at the back socket of the box...there's a certain point where the cable will actually work and then you will have an image on the screen...sort of not quite completely fully in to the socket.you're meant to be able to ... Digital Cameras

HI! I have a one year old Lumix DMC-FS15 that I barely used for some personal photos, I bought a 4 GB SDHC memory card with it, it used to work just fine but now whenever I turn o the camera I message saying that the pictures will be saved on built in memory. Any solutions? is it the memory card or the camera itself? the memory card works well on my PC. thanks!

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

Hi I have an Olympus 1050 SW which had been coping well with canyoning. ... until now. After the last canyon trip, the camera had severe condensation problems in the LCD screen and lens. I have dried the camera out with a hairdryer and used silica gel packets, which worked OK. But now when I point and shoot the camera it gives me streaks across the image. However, if I use the movie camera option, no streaks. I'm not quite sure what to do with the camera as it's past warranty and I'm reluctan


The fact that the streaks are present only when shooting stills confirm that the issue is not with the LCD display but with the imaging chip. The camera uses a different section of the imaging chip to record video with, so what's happened is that moi ... Digital Cameras

Black Screen Bought wife L18 last Xmas. Used once since. Turn it on and lens comes out, but screen is nearly completely black. Menu items barely readable if not viewed under bright light. "Reset ALL" at Setup does nothing. Replaced batteries 3 times, and have taken batteries out of camera for several weeks. No change. Cannot see on-screen image even in bright sunllight.

A few months ago my camera started having problems. no matter how many times i change the batteries, the camera still will not turn on and when it does it flashes a quick image and then the screen goes black and it dies without taking in the lens!!! i am very VERY careful with it and have never dropped it, so i do not understand why it is not working! the Camera is only a year old and i have used it quite a few times and it has never had a problem until now.

Like looking at the image through venetian blinds. They stay on the screen for a few seconds and then disappear.

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

Distorted images When I try to capture a "superfine" resolution image (1600x1200), the image is distorted - segmented, linear blocks across the image, steps in the image, colour is separated into colour blocks - if only I could send you an attachment to demonstrate the effect - it would be so much easier!  I try to use this camera at work to document problems with equipment. This was my first digital camera - and what a disappointment! The batteries drain almost immediately, and never try to use

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?
