Kodak M763. Display works all right if I review photos already taken, but there is usually no display when I try to take a picture. It's black. It may be that, if the battery is fully charged, I may see a display in a sepia tone or a bluish overcast. The information on the screen is bright, it's the viewfinder image that can't be seen. It would have helped me if I could turn it on while its charging, but I can't. That would have solved te question of a low-voltage electrical input. If a subject

I had my D5000 for a month now, recently i noticed something with my camera. looking though the viewfinder only, whenever i focus (half pressing the shutter button), the view from the viewfinder moves up, and without making the shot and letting go the half-pressed shutter button, the view from the viewfinder then moves down to its original position. These movements are noticeable just through the viewfinder with the VR on. But without the VR, the view from the viewfinder makes no movement. i don

I've recently wet-cleaned my Sony A100 sensor and in the process, I attempted to clean the viewfinder pieces. The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.

Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Changed lenses on my Nikon D2X and the viewfinder is now dark. When I unlock the fstop ring and open it up the viewfinder lightens. Lens is Nikon AF 80-200 2.8 How do I get the viewfinder back the way it should be?

Take the lens off and look at the front of the camera body...on the left side ( 9 0'clock position ) is the stop down lever. Check if it looks bent to the side. It's pretty flimsy and can get bent out of shape. The top of that lever needs to be ho ... Digital Cameras

Blurry viewfinder While the viewfinder has always been a little blurry, I've had a recent problem with it being so blurry you couldn't even use it take a picture. Then after swtiching to the LCD viewfinder to shoot from, I see a large yellowish black line on the left side of it, doesn't seem to affect the pictures as I can view them afterwards ....am I going to have a major repair>
