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

I can't take pics with my camera - the buton doesn't even press down. The screen keeps flashing "F_ _ ". I don;'t see this in the manual & have no clue what to do to get it to work. Help?

Answers :

"F--" usually means that no lens or a non-cpu lens is atached. Try changing camera to manual mode. If that works, then it is the lens, if it doesn't then more than likely it is the camera.

DC-3185 Frozen A really odd problem is my son's DC3185 is frozen with a live LCD and the Flash in auto mode except the flash icon "flashes" I see a good LCD image of what I am looking at but can not take a picture. The led light is also red. I have installed new batteries and it didn't help.

White Screen Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise.

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx

Horizontal lines OK, we fixed the black screen and black pictures, but I'm still getting a strong pattern of horizontal lines in my pics. Pictures shot with manual setting adjustments are better than those on automatic, and the lines don't show too much with a strong flash (but if the flash is too strong then the image is washed out). Is this fixable? Or is my camera dying? ~Ange
