Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

Red line on every photo taken with Nikon D40

\015 Recently I noticed a fine red line near the bottom left corner of every photo taken with my 2 year old Nikon D40. I took it to Nikon (Malaysia) and they wanted RM750 to replace the CCD. I told them to go fly @#%, for RM750, I can probably get a new body. When I took back my D40, they kept my non refundable RM20 deposit. Lesson # 1. Never send your Nikon back to them after the warranty period. Lesson # 2. Think twice before buying a Nikon.\015\012\015\012What I did with my D40 ?- Nothing. I can live with the red line for the time being. Probably, give it away to some kid later and get a Canon or Olympus or Pantex or even Sony but not another Nikon.\015

\015\012A new CCD for £128 - that is a total bargain. If you think you can buy a camera half as good as the D40 for RM750 you are deluded... although I agree that the CCD shouldn't have gone in such a short time - I would guess that Nikon UK would have repaired it on good faith - as long as the camera was obviously in otherwise good condition.

Picture error I have an Olympus SP-51OUZ camera. Nearly every photo I take, when reviewed, comes up with 'picture error' and a big warning exclamation mark (in red on a blue background). Only about 1 in 20 photos taken are ok. I have formatted the card but it still happens. When I used the card on my laptop it scanned it & said there were no problems with it. Obviously it's a nightmare because I have to review every single photo to check it has come out! Please help! Rachel

If you have a combo media-reader, put the xD card in that and connect it to computer. Copy all images through the reader. Then format the xD card. Now it should work okay. ... Olympus SP-510 UZ Digital Camera

Blurry/strippy photos I just got to Bilbao in Spain doing a photographic research project but every time and try and take a photo and view it comes out strippy with lots of little lines really close together and interspersed with a couple of fat ones too!!

Fuzzy Images Hello! Hi have the NIKON CooPix S7C. I would so appreciate some help. Majority of images I shoot are fuzzy if photo taken indoors. I have tried every white balance setting, and nothing helps. I have experimented with almost all settings and still can't seem to get clear, sharp images unless I am shooting outside on a sunny day, or in a room with a lot of sunlight. How can I fix this?

Nikon L10 has developed a flickering screen overlay (zoning lines or actions such as alter flash priority) When trying to close off the menu overlay a section of it remains and obscures the view from the lens. When a photo CAN be taken the image stays on the screen until the camera is forcibly shut down. The photo IS saved but all this makes a helluva nuisance to use.

A85 camera LCD shows up with pink and black lines every time a picture is taken. LCD screen displays the camera icons on LCD screen but will not take anymore photo's. Lens used to view picture status prior to photo shot but now, it consistently shows up in black. When a picture is shot, the screen then turns pink and black on the LCD screen.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

My Nikon Coolpix 4600 will take 1 photo, then refuses to take anymore unless it's turned off and then turned back on. When first turned on the flash and AF LEDs go on. After 1 photo is taken, the flash and AF LEDs won't come on. Pressing the shutter release does nothing. There are no alerts or other red indicators on the screen. The batteries are new.

I visited a brick-and-mortar camera store and asked a repair specialist. There I learned that the problem with my camera is a firmware problem and not worth fixing. I'll throw away the camera and buy another $150 disposable camera. ... Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

Photos taken now not visible on memory card. I'm currently on vacation and have been taking photos on my DMC-TZ5. Camera has been working fine, until yesterday. I took a number of photos of a particularly memorable day when none of the group had a camera with them. Every time a photo was taken the image was displayed for a second before being able to take another shot. A number of times I went back to check the photos, each time the photo was visible. However, when I returned home and p
