Having problems with your Nikon D200 Digital Camera With 18-135MM ?

Hi, my Nikon D200 has a blank screen. If I go to the menu, it shows the menu just fine, but if I want to take a picture it is black. I tried taking a couple of shots, and they are all dark with a small amount of definition just to where I can see what I am photographing. Is there some setting that has been messed up? I can't figure this out from the manual. Thanks!


Answers :

There are a couple ways you can bring this back to "normal" one is called a two button reset. The Two Button Rest is where you press the "Qual" and the +/- buttons for a few seconds and the camera LCD panels go dark might blink then come back on to the original settings.
Here is a diagram to show you what it is I'm talking about.

Now if someone has really messed up things you can do a "Custom Reset" it's a little more complicated but actually the one I prefer as it brings the whole system back to factory default. You might want to do the two button reset first before this.

Doing both will bring the camera completely back to factory defaults if this doesn't solve the problem then the camera is a little bit further out of tune and mat need to visit the service department.

Hi, I recently purchased a D2Xs floor model or demo unit form a liquidation company here is Kansas City. The problem is that I have no menu options and the only thing that comes up when I access the menu on the camera is a small setup menu with about 6-7 options, none of which include a reset or any additional features. This renders the camera practically useless as most of my dials will not work because they need to be directed by the firmware. How can I reinstall the original version 1.0 firmw
