Having problems with your Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera ?

I have spots showing up in my photos, I guess dust or something on the CCD. Can I clean it with a dust free swab and alchohol?

I have a Nikon D80. Whilst at Yosemite National Park a few weeks ago, where it was extremely cold I noticed that my camera would not take photo. After a few tries, it started working fine again. However, yesterday the shutter started sticking, and the ERR message showed on the screen. Then I can take one photo, and same thing happens again. Is there something I can do with settings, or do you think there may be something wrong with the camera body? I took to a camera shop and they say the

Hi.my daughter's Panasonic DMC-FZ7 has gone dark through the view-finder, and all the photos and videos that she tries to shoot are likewise totally black. While photographing yesterday, she paused to gently clean the lens. All photos since then have been black. The camera records taking a photo but shows a black screen on play-back.Changing to a fresh battery makes no difference, neither does using a flash. Can you give any guidance about what is likely to be the problem, and what we should do

I have the Canon Rebel XTi. I am getting a message the CF card has a problem. I am able to put card in computer and it opens the files that are on the card. The camera screen shows a blank space where the photo count should be. I have cleaned the connectors on the body of the camera and the lense. The camera is maybe 1 1/2 years old and I have taken maybe 10,000 photos. could the card need to be replaced? or could it be the camera itself :<(

My Canon 5D mkI turns on ok, will focus, displays top and back, but it will not take a shot. I have two batteries, both which I have charged to full and tried (display shows full charge). I have also tried two seperate CF cards. I have tried cleaning all contacts. Still it won't take a photo. The shutter will work when I use the "clean sensor" function though. Also, I have reset all settings on the camera. Anyone know why the camera isn't firing off a shot?

I applied lens cleaning fluid directly to the lens of my camera, a Fuji F50FD digital compact, but it seems to have leaked into the lens housing. Any photos I now take appear with mutiple fine white streaks across them. Curiously, when I shoot in video mode the footage appears completely unaffected. Is this something that I can fix myself - is it just a question of taking the camera apart, then cleaning the inside with care? Or would the lens housing now to be replaced?


This is not something I would recommend you do without the proper knowledge or alignment tools. You would probably just end up with a brick instead of a camera. Sending it to a repair center would be very expensive. Possibly much more than the camera ... Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera

How do I clean dust inside the camera? I noticed some splotches on my photos, then looked closely at the lens and it appears there is dust on the inside of the lens.


You can't clean inside the camera. Dust inside the lens would be so out of focus, it wouldn't register on your pics unless the particle was huge. Do these splotches only happen in your flash pictures? ... Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera

Recently had to ship my canon Digital RebelXS/ 1000 digital camera for repair. It would keep showing me an error 99 code. the camera is only 7 mths old. I'm just learning to use this camera.. Is it something I could avoid or done to give me this code. I asked the place I had to ship it to what canon had done. All I was told there was a short in the camera and they cleaned the lenses. I really like to find out what shorted out.

Seriously confused... It was only 6 days ago when I went to my favorite photo-outlet to have my S2 CCD-chip cleaned. One of the main 'cons' of my camera is the amount of dust that is sort of living nowadays behind the viewfinder and the LCD screens. It rather bothers me that a piece of equipment -at that time costing about 2600,- euros- is that sensitive for external influences. But anyway, camera still works fine and in some way it has become a part of me. So I was very enthousiast when the ann

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.


It is definitely a CCD issue. First of all how long have you owned the camera? I am guessing it is out of warranty so in most cases it is the best option to purchase a replacement as you will be able to get one twice as good for about as much as the ... Digital Cameras
