Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

D50 not taking pictures


\015 I am a novice. I left my d50 in the car, and it had a little condensation on the lens. So, I rmoved the lens and wiped it off. then, replaced it and now, the shutter sounds different and it will not take pictures. One thing I did do was push the shutter while the lens was off. HELP please.\015\012\015\012ak\015

Answers :

Okay this is how i fixed mine. take the lense off and hit the button to take a picture the shudder should snap down up down or something like that
\015\012
\015\012or lift up the shudder and see at the very back there should be a little black almost curtan like thing. make sure there are no bends or breaks or bubbles the curtan things.
\015\012hopes this helped
Not experienced on this but if not taking pictures it could be the `mirror ` is not moving have you tried taking off the lense again and re fitting, you may not have fitted properly.
\015\012My own opinion is that pushing the shutter shouldnt cause a problem. Do the white dots line up?
\015\012Wish I could be of more help.
