Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

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!!!!


Answers :

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 eraser to make sure you get good contact. Install the batteries so the positive side faces up in the cap. Use two 1.5 volt S76 or A76 cells. The single cell 3 volt lithium is not recommended.

I have a brand new G12 and have used it for the past 10 days. I loved it until it would no longer take pictures. This is the problem: I turn on the camera and the display screen is black. I take a picture and nothing appears. However, I have no problem viewing previous pictures taken before this issue. Can you please help....I really want to love the camera, but I should not be frustrated after 10 days. THANKS

Be sure to fully charge your batteries if rechargeable - at least 14 hours. Check that your card door is closed good - it's common for the latch to break. There's a switch at the top of the door that has to close before it'll turn on. ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

My camera is charged but for a while when i turn it on the screen is just black and my pictures do not come out. It has been doing this for a while but on and off and would usually start to work again after a while. Now it hasnt gone back to normal for a long time and i cant take any pictures. i tried taking out the battery and memory card and putting them back to refresh it but it still wont work.

Black screen I just took pictures yesterday, went to take a picture today, and the screen is black, but the settings still show up around the edge of the LCD screen. I took a picture "just for fun", but it still showed up black (I thought that when the picture took, it would show up in the screen -- nope !!) HELP, I've only had this camera for about 6 months, and I love it (when it works). It was given to me for Christmas, so of course I don't have any of the receipts. Hope you can help me --
