Having problems with your Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera ?

My nikon d3000 is great. but now when i view my pics there is a flashing in certain areas of the pic. also my flash won't flash. is there something i can do to fix it


Answers :

This flashing is often an indication that those areas are 'over exposed'. This could be because you have manual settings such as 'EV +1'etc., or 'spot metering' when you took the picture centred on a dark part of the scene. You could check this by setting the camera to automatic to see if it solves the problem. If it does, have a good look through the menus and user guide to see what the various manual settings are.

The flash settings include one where the flash is off, and there is usually a button to toggle between the automatic/off/forced flash/red eye suppression etc.

Menu button doesn't work. Can only see pics thru viewfinder then have to unload pics off chip to view. Pics are always out of focus and discolored (usually too much red or yellow). Also can't use flash because of no access to menu. Would like a fix or will need to purchase another camera. This one is only 3-4 years old.

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!

Focus Problem I recently took the camera apart to fix the zoom. lens would not come out. Fixed it all good now goes in and out smothly. Now the pics are fuzzy out of focus. has auto focus 2' too infinity. Wiped the lenses off while i was in there with a lens cloth from binoculars. Maybe not well enough and it might have a film on it. Would that make the pics fuzzy or out of focus? Or is there something else?


A small amount of dirt on the lens would just produce some flare and redule overall contrast slightly. It wouldn't produce a grossly out of focus image. Either you misaligned something or you messed up the autofocus system somehow.\015\012\015\012Can ... Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital Camera
