Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

My Nikon D40 has developed a shadow in photos, not associated with lens. Please advise.

Answers :

Is this shadow more like a spot that you can see clearly in areas of the picture like the sky? If so, this could be dust on the sensor. This is easy enough to remedy. Just Google the words "how to clean a DSLR sensor" and you will find sites that explain in detail with pictures the entire procedure. You will also find the materials needed and where to find them.

I just got the Nikon Coolpix P100. Wonderful camera. Here is my problem. I can download the photos. But I cannot edit them. When I try to go to picturetown it asks for my email and password. It will not accept my password. Thus I cannot download any photos to it, and really enjoy 'doctoring' the photos. Please advise me as to how to reset, or get the right password. Thank you.

When I take a photo with my Nikon D90 in auto mode and flash i get a dark spot on the bottom of the image on the lcd that resembles a shadow. there is no shadow in the picture. What is casuing this?

This is more than likely a shadow from your lens. The on-camera flash is in a fairly low position, and I am able to duplicate your description when using my D200 on-camera flash and a physically longer lens- in my case a 28-70 F2.8 lens. Using a hot- ... Digital Cameras

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When

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.

I have a Nikon D40 which is coming upto being two years old. Recently I have noticed that the auto-focus will not work. If I manually focus I can still take photos but when auto is engaged it will not even try to focus and therefore will not allow me to take a photo. I have not made any changes to the settings and therefore I am concerned it is a hardware fault. The lens in question is the standard lens supplied with the camera and is the only lens I have so have been unable to check t

I have bought a Nikon coopix S600 and recently I have taken a considerable amount of pictures while on holiday.This is the first time that I happened to develop most of them for my album.On computer the colour of the photos was excellent.However I was very disappointed with the picture colours.The colour came out very strong which I did not like. Is there some feature on the camera I am missing out for the printing of these photos?

You said that the pictures on your computer looks perfect. It just that when you print them out, the color came too strong. Well i think it is with the printer and its color separation that has the problem and not the camera. When you see those pi ... Nikon Coolpix S600 Digital Camera
