1. If the lens has a A setting on the aperture ring (right after the f22 mark) make sure it is set to that.  You should then get a picture.\012

I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.

Hi there. I suddenly have a problem focusing my canon digital rebel xt. I have done nothing different to it, but cannot get it to focus AT ALL now. I am a professional photographer so tried other troubleshooting routes that I thought might cause focus problems (i.e. not enough light; played around with the shutter speed, f stops. etc.). I also took battery out, and put back. I took lens off and put back on. Any other ideas that you can suggest that would be causing this problem? Thank you for yo

Lens Error! We have a Nikon Coolpix S6. When attempting to turn on, the camera buzzes. Afterward, the screen shows what the lens is pointing at, but then it goes white and the words, "Lens Error" appears. I can't find the manual to pinpoint the problem.

Dear Sir/Madam, My daughter did get an Olypmus FE-340 digital camera last year but has since a few weeks problems with this camera. On switching on the camera the lens keeps opening and closing.

GoPro Hero camera. I get a "buzzing" sound on the videos recorded from inside my car. It seems there's some interference with the car electronics, so I've been told (and videos taken with the engine off don't suffer this problem). I've tried to "insulate" the camerea with cooking aluminium sheet, but: 1) I can't cover it entirely, because lens, display and operating buttons must be kept obviously clear; 2) It doesn' solve the problem. Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanks!


The source of the interference is usually the radio signals, so did you try turning off your car radio/music player to see if the problem persists. There are currently no covers that can solve the interference. Your only hope is to suppress the sourc ... GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera

Hello, I recently bought a Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D lens for my Nikon D40. I can't get the Auto Zoom to work. I was wondering what I am doing wrong. is ther any setting I have to put my camera in? Anything I have to do on the lens it self? Help!!! Thank you Higor

How do I get rid of the histogram display which automatically displays when I review a photo.I can get rid of it by pressing the "ENTER" button, but then I can't continue to review the other photos I've taken. I didn't have the histogram display until recently, so I must've pressed the wrong button somewhere! Help! Please.... thanks, Crisse
