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


\015 My friend dropped my camera now the auto flash doesn't work. i assumed that the impact blew the bulb. if that is the case can the flash be replaced? do i have to take it to a service center or is that something i can do myself?\015

Answers :

If the camera still takes photos with no additional issues, i suggest you buy an external flash like a sb400 or an sb600. getting the flash serviced will fetch you around 100-150 usd which is about the price of the sb600.

Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2. High ISO Auto Either setting, the indoor photos are grainy. Further, there are times when my flash will not work. It won't work on Auto setting or when I try and "force flash" it. No flash and the photo will not allow a picture to even be taken. Any suggestions? Thanks

The flash is either far too bright or not bright enough even when using the auto setting. The flash either doesn't flash at all on "soft flash" and then blinds people when the flash is turned on so it produces very dark faces or bright white images. I've tried using different scene modes but this does not seem to work.
