Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

Just bought a new Nikkor 70-200 AF-S VR lens. I CANNOT remove the rear lens cap, nor are there directions for removal in the instruction manual. Is there a secret ?!? Many thanks! (I am feeling like a total idiot.)


Answers :

Did you try twisting the aperature ring to release the lens cap? You can't just pull it off, as the body cap locks on by twisting the aperature ring.

Olympus 570uz is not working and is not worth the cost of professional repair (as told to me by Olympus), so I'd like to take apart and see if I can get lucky fixing it myself. Otherwise, it's a paperweight. Can anyone tell me the secret to removing the back cover? All discernable screws have been removed, but it's getting hung up by the hot shoe and flash. My next step is to take out an x-acto blade and start cutting, so please let me know the secret. Tried finding a repair manual online with n

No focus It does not get focused on object. Looks like there is something on lenses inside the camera because when I do wide zoom directed on white paper there are few gray dots visible on the picture. I tried to open it but did not get to the lenses. Is it posible to open it with some instruction from you. Minolta does not support digital cameras anymore and there is not local repair stores. I like it but can not use. Thank you in advance

I have a replacement LCD display for my Finepix S1000 FD camera. I can remove all the screws, but the cover will not come off. There are two small screw like pins on the bottom on each side of the tripod connection but they are not standard tips. Can you give instruction on how to correctly remove the cover. I am fairly hardware proficient as I service pc's and printers.

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.


Hello ... Digital Cameras

Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow the camera to work, directly after a fresh charge, but not after it is removed, unless directly after insertion from being freshly charged. Have checked all 4 different batteries and voltages all appear at of above specified 3.7 VDC. Still only one of the 4 will ever allow the camera to functio


A voltage test alone cannot determine if the battery is good unless you can have the current rating of the battery tested. So if the camera comes on after a charge it seems that the battery is not retaining current for the camera to boot on.\01 ... Nikon COOLPIX S710 Digital Camera

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

Wickedwahine Just today, the directional buttons froze up so that the up/down, left/right arrow buttons no longer work to scroll through pictures nor can I use them to navigate menu items. I removed the battery for 1 min as suggested in troubleshooting but it still didn't work. I also tried to press and hold the control and power button (just a guess) trying to trigger a reset. The directional buttons worked very briefly after that but it might just have been a fluke.
