Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

Dirt in the viewfinder of my d200. I've cleaned the eyepiece. i have also removed the lens and cleaned the ground glass. there is still what look like small pieces of dirt.


Answers :

Dear friend, take your lens off, turn your camera to M for manual, rotate the main comand dial till you see the word BULB, press down the shutter button and keep holding it down, use a hand puffer, not canned air and gently puff some air into the camera. Very important, the lens opening must be facing down so any little debris will fall directly out. Let go of the shutter button when finished and replace the lens, repete if needed. You can buy those little hand blowers or puffers at any camera store. Hope that helps, Barry [email protected]

My wife has a Canon 60D DSLR camera. When she looks through the view finder, it looks like the lens has a speck of dust on it as she can see it in the viewfinder. She has swapped lenses and the spec is still there. She used the auto clean function for the sensor, but the spec hasn't moved, This is almost a brand new camera. Should we clean the sensor by hand? If so, how do you do it?

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??


I imagine the only way to obtain a proper part is to send it to an approved Olympus service centre, hopefully under warranty (though I expect they would not regard this as covered).The camera must have some way of telling that the door is ... Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera

While disconnecting a lens from my Olympus OM1 camera, a rectangular shaped piece of plasic fell out of the camera. The plastic piece is a foggy looking material and the center has a small clear lens like surface. The plastic piece is about 3/4" by 1-1/4" in size. What fell out and where does it go?


That is probably one of the two curtains on the lens shutter, check if both plastic parts are closing the lens objective when the camera is off. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon EOS 400D. Photographs are appearing with what looks like round marks or bubbles in the image. I've cleaned and changed the lenses but it still appears.

I just received my Nikon D3100 in the mail today, and I was so excited. When I opened the lens cap on the camera body to put the lens on a small, clear-ish rectangle fell out. It was surrounded by a thin cooper colored frame that is easily removable. It looked like a little magnifying glass so I am kind of nervous. It seems to shoot pictures fine, but some times it tells me the shot is to dark even though I am in full light. It also took black pictures the first few times and if I point it di

Hello. I have recently gotten a Sony DSC-s950 SteadyShot. Yesterday, I plugged in the camera and later took it out. But when attempting to view the photos inside of it, all I get is a very small box in the center that looks like a bunch of meshed up colors. When I connect to the computer though, I am still capable of seeing the images. Any help on this would be gladly appreciated.

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

Before Christmas, I was in the EasyShare program, looking for a particular picture. I hit one (or 2) keys by mistake--Either/or shift key on right side, the Control key,the one that looks like a window and also one that looks like a printed page. The Easy Share program disappeared so fast, I hardly so it go. Since that time, I have been unable to open it--usually, when you want to remove something, it will ask "are you sure you want to whatever" This did not happen. I finally remember

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.
