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

Tina's Nikon D40

\015 Okay, I\342\200\231ve got three problems (more if you\015\012don\342\200\231t just count the camera!). I have a Nikon D40 which I bought and have been\015\012using with quite a lot of satisfaction generally for a year. The problems are: \015\012\015\012\302\240\015\012\015\0121)\015\012\015\012\302\240\015\012\015\012Suddenly a load of my files have got new\015\012modification dates of 1st January 1980. The date on the camera in\015\012the settings is still correct. Only some of the files had been altered (82\015\012became 1980 and 134 remained correct).\015\012\015\012\302\240\015\012\015\0122)\015\012\015\012I keep getting a soft grey small mark on my\015\012files which I do not think is anything on the front of the lens as it looks\015\012clean. I can only imagine it is either on the chip or inner optics of the lens.\015\012Either way I have to keep retouching it out, although it mainly shows on large\015\012one-tone, clear, plain areas.\015\012\015\012\302\240\015\012\015\0123) \015\012\015\012\302\240\015\012\015\012In the preview screen viewer, I keep\015\012getting highlights burning out in a sort of solarised manner, which even if is\015\012a warning or incorrect, is irritating to look at. How can I turn this off.\015

Answers :

1. If the files were on the computer and not in the camera then obviously it wasnt the camera that modified the dates. If the camera's clock is ok and new images date stamp are ok while the files are still in the camera (you can see this in playback mode on the camera) then its not the camera.

2. The camera's ccd sensor has gotten a speck of dust/dirt on it, Have it cleaned at a reputable camera shop. (Shop here charges $45).

3. While in playback mode, press up or down on the 4-way controller to toggle between highlights, shooting info, custom settings, histogram, or none.
