Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

I Cant remove a battery from a Nikon D40. It comes out about 1/4 and stops as though there is some kind of release switch i'm missing. Can you help?

Answers :

The battery has a little groove with a "ramp" in it to keep the battery from falling out when you open the door. It should come all the way out if you grab the 1/4 that is sticking out and pull/wiggle it a bit. I'm doing it as I type. There is a definate "catch" in the removal, but a little extra tug does the job.

I have a nikon FG, the old fashion kind not a digital, that has a frozen shutter. It clicked once and went to black and now won't release. I'd love to take this camera out of town wiht me....HELP!!!!

Turn the speed dial to the M90 or B setting. That will complete the release cycle for the camera. Neither of those settings require battery power. You probably need new ones. Clean the cap surface and the contact in the camera with a pencil erase ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!
