Nikon D40 - Flashing black on the light/white areas of inside & outside pics

\015 I have a Nikon D40 and I am having trouble with parts of the pictures flashing black. It's usually on the white or bright areas. Doesn't matter if the picture was taken inside or outside. This did not start happening until last week. The lower right of the viewing screen is showing "highlighted". I must have accidently pushed a button or something for this to start happening and I can't get it to stop. It is effecting all my pictures now even the ones that are on the disc from Christmas. How do I get the flashing to stop.\015

Answers :

It sounds as if you have changed the viewing setting so that the camera highlights over-exposed/highlight areas of the image.

While playing back images, press the multi-selector (4 way cursor) up or down to cycle through the various options.

This should be explained on page 51 of the cameras manual.

Hope this helps.

Matt.

Hi there, I am having the same problem. I have this dark round cicrle on each of my photos weather im outside or inside night or specially at night. I have a D90 nikon and it has a hoood on it and iam not using the additional flash just the build in it goes automatic since I did put it on automatic settings. Another thing how do I correct the pictures that has the black shadow, since it is made already. Thank you [email protected]


A huge possibility, without actually seeing the picture is that it's a shadow caused by the lens hood. The internal flash units are "generally" good for up to about 80mm then the focal length of the lens starts getting in the flash burst, add a hood ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

Nikon D60. When viewing pics I get a section of the display that flashes on and off. I have no idea what's happened and I can't get back to viewing pics without the annoying flashing, it flashes black and white.


You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been overexposed so much that they've gone pure white and lost all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you so. Of course, the ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

My nikon d3000 is great. but now when i view my pics there is a flashing in certain areas of the pic. also my flash won't flash. is there something i can do to fix it


This flashing is often an indication that those areas are 'over exposed'. This could be because you have manual settings such as 'EV +1'etc., or 'spot metering' when you took the picture centred on a dark part of the scene. You could check this by se ... Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera

I purchased DMC-FZ28 k August 2008. I am not a photographer and used iAuto function and other preset modes. The pics come out "flat" "dull" and lack vibrance and color depth. This is made more obvious when pics are compared to other pics I have taken (older Canon powershot camera) and pics taken by others using their less expensive cameras. This has been this way since new and applies to all sorts of pics - inside, outside, light, flash, etc. I have tried various settings, experiment

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?


Are you getting a Err message? If so The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I have a Nikon Coolpix L110 and the pictures have a yellow tint when taken inside. I've noticed the yellow tint varies when I point the camera to different areas in the room. I've never had an issue like this with other cameras so I'm not sure what is causing this. I read the manual and there was really nothing to address this issue. Okay this may be stupid question but; Do you think raising the flash will get rid of the yellow? Thanks Marie Steel

DARK PICTURES I just bought a Konica Minolta X1 DiMAGE digital camera. But I bought it used. It looks brand new and the seller had everything that came with it originally including the original box.So far, I have been extremely disappointed with it.

The image that shows up on the camera when I review them, has black flashing areas. For example if the area I photographed had a lot of white - it shows up as a flashing black section. What is this?

I have a Cuddeback C-1000 trail camera. Mostly all the pics taken at night are black. About every 8-10 pics will take. The rest are black. Apparently the flash is not going off every time. Even in the black pics you can see a faint image. This camera has taken over 15,000 life time images. Cuddeback will want to upgrade my camera for a newer one. I do not want to do this as I have read the reviews of newer cameras and realize their first two models are the best. I think we have had this
