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

Sometimes pictures are dark even in auto mode, err message is always coming, dark image in the view finder.



Answers :

Hi dear pmorala
1) check
the lens if to drive the diaphragm actuating lever that opens.
2) also check the aperture lever on the camera body may be broken or bent.
3) look at the Shutter release the mirror and shoot the camera in a low speed (M mode) note if this works correctly or some of the leaves that make up the curtain is loose or out of place.


Everything seems fine ... OK command dial to select the full aperture, shoots the camera at you and see the diaphragm (set M mode and speed sh bellow 1 / 8). Full closed? = Aperture Mechanism defective.

I'm having problems with the settings on my Canon EOS 400D. When I take pictures in AV mode I can get quality pictures but in TV or M modes the pictures always come out so dark even when taking them outside in daylight. They are not coming back with a completely blank screen as I can see the outlines of the image. Even when I try different settings nothing improves the image.

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos. After that, the camera is acting weird, pictures sometimes are taken but the picture is always dark, although flash is used and AUTO mode selected. I do not see the error message anymore, but the camera simply do not take pictures properly. I tried formatting, etc with no result.

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?

Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

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.

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too.  Help please, it seems like I must be doing something wrong either that or my camera is broken. P.S. it is brand new Amber


No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?

Hi, I have the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W130 digital camera - whilst away on holiday a message appears when I turn on the camera "turn power off and on again". I have done so many times but it still comes up with the same message - hence not allowing me to take any pictures. I can view existing images through the window and I can download them fine - I just can't take any new ones. There is plenty of space on the card and a full battery. Any suggestions?

"Unidentified Image" I took a bunch of pictures and now about 15 of them say "Corrupted Data" when I go to view them. A few of them say "Unidentified Image" and I can still view the picture. When I loaded them all on my PC, those that say "corrupted Data" or "Unidentified Image" loaded, but no program will open them. Even the ones that I am still able to view the picture. I believe all these pictures are my close up shots, too. Hmmmm... is there any solution to being able to open these pics

I rec'd a The Sharper Image digital photo album with keychain as a gift two years ago. I have installed the 55 pictures from my pc to the unit. This unit will only work if I keep the unit plugged into my pc or a wall adapter. It does not respond to clicking the on and off switch. No light comes on green or red, but it is always green when plugged in. I think the unit does not have a battery in it as it should. If the battery is dead, it wasn't even used.

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.


Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras

Verticle Lines When I turn on my camera, all I can see in my view-finder is many lines, almost like a multi-colored bar code. Sometimes this occurs after trying to take the first picture, but most of the time there cannot even be a first picture. When I attempt to snap a picture with the lines in the view finder and then 'recall' that picture, it is only the lines.

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?


Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure. ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera
