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

Images get bright flashing border when looked at. I think it is highlighting, but I want to get rid of it.


Answers :

If when you are reviewing the LCD after taking a photo and a portion of the picture is flashing black, that would be your highlight exposure warning. This can happen when the picture is overexposed, so you will need to use a faster shutter speed or a smaller aperture.

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.


There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

I have just recently boughta Nikon D60 and currently own a Tamron 28-300 lens and a 90 macro lens. I think that I want to buy a strob after a workshop I went to this past weekend. I want to be able to hold the flash off the camera and use it to high light some macro shots. I don't know whether to but the Nikon SB 600 or spent the $100 difference and buy the SB 800? Or am I bitting off more then I can chew at this stage of the game and getting into equipment that will be complex and frustrati


The SB-600 will probably do everything you want.One caution: To use flash off your D60 you're going to need either an external sync cord or a wireless controller. The SB-800 (and the current SB-900) can be used as a controller, the SB-600 ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon Coolpix L110. When I take pictures, they often look yellow. I can get the color to correct by focusing on a nearby area, but when I return to the shot I want to take, the color almost always goes back to a yellowish cast. I bought this camera because I was having the same problem with my last Nikon. I thought it was the camera. Now I'm thinking the problem is with the manufacturer.

I have a Nikon Coolpix L110 and the pictures have a yellow tint when taken inside. I've noticed the yellow tint varies when I point the camera to different areas in the room. I've never had an issue like this with other cameras so I'm not sure what is causing this. I read the manual and there was really nothing to address this issue. Okay this may be stupid question but; Do you think raising the flash will get rid of the yellow? Thanks Marie Steel

I was given an old sony fd200 digital camera (that takes the old floppy discs!) to use momentarily until I get a new camera - BUT it doesn't have a manual. I used it years ago but its been awhile.

Silly problem I just can't figure out how to turn the side bar with the different shooting options off and use a regular shooting mode that's not night or outdoors, or some other option--I can't seem to click out of it, and I also don't have the option of using close-up, which I think is because I can't get rid of the menu sidebar.

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing.

Nikon CoolPix S500 shows colored lines on lcd and in photos where the lights are bright. I have restored settings tried using it with no flash, soft flash, and auto flash and the problem continues. Noticed the lines on the lcd over a year ago and it has progressed to brightly lit photos also now. In some photos lighter colors also show up with the lines. ie.

Hello people im trying to get into my daughters DMB fs7. i'v got the sides - the back off - but i'm trying to get to the lense. it wont open or close properly. i want to know why - think it has been dropped by little sister. does the outer face ring 'screw' off? my daughter also has a dmc-fh1 with a broken screen!! are the lenses inter changeable?
