Having problems with your Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens ?

When i turn the camera on, the F (aperature) button blinks, not allowing the camera to focus, even in auto mode. when this happens, i can't even customize my setting on A or S priority. I am frustrated because i can't get my camera to take a picture until the camera decides to focus itself!


Answers :

This is usually because the lens is not compatible with the camera body. It will work fine with 'M', but light metering, autofocus or distance information are not transferred to the camera.

Since I believe you have had this combination for a while and it has worked fine earlier, it's better to take to authorized Nikon dealership for checkup and repairs.

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u

I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it shows a great view of the picture in the screen. Even changing the setting to night, does nothing-it's black I honestly was thinking of replacing the camera for this reason, it is very frustrating. Other than that, it is a great little camera.

Camera takes photos without actually "focusing" on the object. Seems their is no "prefocus" with the button. As soon as you touch the focus button, the camera automatically takes the photo. When the camera was working correctly, you'd push the focus button half way down and then it would do it's job. Now it just takes the shot if you barely even touch the button. Not good...........
