Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera ?

When I look at pics I've taken the sky is always flashing (black, then sky). I know that this shows that the exposure won't work for the sky. Is there any way I can turn that off so that when I review my pics I don't have to see it flashing?

Answers :

The best solution in most cases is to reduce the exposure so as to avoid the blown-out highlights. However, if you simply want to get rid of them on the screen, press up/down on the multiselector to select a view you prefer.

TRy and reformat the CF card through the camera. Youll lose the pics for sure but you cant see them anyway. You can also check for bent pins in the CF slot. Sometimes if you shut down the camera in mid write to the card, itll mess up the cards FAT (f ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

Flash I there a way i can program the camera to take perfect pics without manually adjusting flash. All i need is to shoot at the object and get a clear pics. With this minolta i have to test several shots while adjusting the flash to appropriate exposures before I get a good pic.

What's perfect to you may not be perfect to someone else, That is why this pro grade camera offers so much in the way of adjustments. One doesn't often GET the perfect picture. More often, one must CREATE the perfect picture.. \015\012\01 ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

Last night was taking photos indoors with flash on auto setting. All appeared fine except thre was a vertical line on the viewfinder, not quite half way across. After about 4 flash photos, the flash turned itself off and it wouldn't allow me to adjust the settings back to flash again. I checked the setting and it was still on auto and there was plenty of battery left. Tried a couple of shots and they took, but no flash, so useless. Turned camera off for half an hour then tried again and it was f

I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?

Cleaned is not the problem. Most of the time it is poor battery. Just becuase the battery says it is charged means nothing. These cameras take a great deal of power compared to other AA devices. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 Digital Camera

I purchased DMC-FZ28 k August 2008. I am not a photographer and used iAuto function and other preset modes. The pics come out "flat" "dull" and lack vibrance and color depth. This is made more obvious when pics are compared to other pics I have taken (older Canon powershot camera) and pics taken by others using their less expensive cameras. This has been this way since new and applies to all sorts of pics - inside, outside, light, flash, etc. I have tried various settings, experiment

My flash won't turn on for my iSonic digital video camera. The instructions say to press the "up" arrow on the camera in the capture mode. I do this, I hear a beep, the tint of the screen changes, but it doesn't flash in any mode. I either see a "no flash" symbol, or nothing, and either way it still doesn't flash.

My husband dropped my sony dsc-H10 in the river for a very quick swim. We let the camera dry out and it actually works great now, except for the flash. I can turn the flash on and it will click like the flash is working during a picture but it never lights up. I am wondering if there is an easy way to replace the flash or should i try to send it in for repair.

To remove and replace the flash unit is complicated and fraut with the unexpected. I would suggest that you take it for repair. Also this is not an underwater camera, so after a while expect problems from corrosion. If it was dried in a bowl of rice ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera

Hi, I have a problem with my Sony Cybershot, 10.1 mega pixel camera. There is a little orange dot that keeps flashing, next to the flash symbol, and to take a pic you need to turn the flash off, the flash won't work. Any suggestions of what might be the problem? Thanks.

The next time I turned it on, the power light would flash, but nothing would happen. I have a cord that conects to the computer but it doesn't charge that way. Whats wrong here?
