Having problems with your Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera ?

My Nikon D 300 has no power, The battery is fully charged. I have a spare that I use with my MD 10 grip. There is no display on the LCD; can someone give me some advise, P.S I had the D300 for 8 months, no contact with water or mis-used


Answers :

Im not trying to sound degrading, but isnt there a little button on the bottom right of the display that turns it on or off? I know there is on the D70 and D80, Ive never actually used a D300 myself, bu tI just thought maybe thay had a common trait.

I have a JVC GR-DX25EK digital video camera which I have had for several years and never had any problems with. I used it yesterday to video my daughters wedding but when the tape ran out I couldn't remove it from the camera as it won't eject it. This has never happened before and I don't want to damage the tape. Please can someone advise me how to get the tape out of the camera? Michelle Gillingham 19.7.08


When you get errors do a complete rewind or fast forward to the end of the tape in order to pull out tape slack. Then remove battery and tape for a while. If still screwed, then yes, sharply tap (not hard!) on the closed tape door. That may repositi ... JVC Digital Cameras

I have two years old Sony DSC S 750 Digital Still Cemera. Suddenly it is producing photos with small Horizontal Lines. I have tried to restore the factory settings and tried with different settings. But, it is still giving pictures with horizontal lines. I always keep the battery away from the cemera when it is not in use. I never mis handled and dropped the cemera. Please tell me how to fix the problem.

My 82 yr. old sister has been offered thru the mail (a sweepstakes)a 3.0pixal digatal, cam corder, webcam, Nippon camera, they want a check for $39.95. Is this a scam? She probably won't even use the camera. She'll more than likely give it to someone. Thank you for you consideration.


Yes, it is likely a scam. If she did not enter into a sweepstakes and won a prize then likely the amount of money they are asking is much more than the actual item is worth. ... Digital Cameras

My Lumix DMC-LZ6 has started giving a blue hue to all pictures taken outside. The images taken inside are fine, but almost all that are taken outside have Smurfland-like lighting. I haven't seen anyone else with this problem...hope someone can advise!

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.


Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

I just purchased a Power Shot sx200is. I will be taking pictures this evening where most of the subjects are African American. They will be getting awards and the person giving the awards is Irish American and very light skinned. This will take place in a room that is well lit with florescent lighting. In the past I have had success shooting this combination with a Nikon camera using the night snapshot mode. But this is the first time I will be using the Canon. Any tips you can give me.


In most cases in this type of venue what you do is take some test pictures. Adjust accordingly a good tip would be lighting make sure the lighting is mostly behind you.. \015\012\015\012It hard to tell as I have ... Digital Cameras

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?


Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
