Hola, mi camara no dispara correctamente, al presionar el disparador se traba y aparece un rotulo en la pantalla que dice presione nuevamente y luego termina la foto, las fotos son de buena calidad... pero...

Cuando esto sucede en mi Nikon D-90, recibo un mensaje "ERR" en el panel de control. Nunca he conseguido un mensaje "vuelva a intentarlo". Sin embargo, suponiendo que esto es el mismo fallo, el manual del usuario dice que esto es un fallo de c?mara que puede ser aclarado por liberaci?n del obturador. En mi D-90 s?lo puedo hacerlo girando la c?mara y otra vez. A veces, tengo que quitar y volver a colocar la bater?a. El manual dice que si este problema persiste, debe enviarla a un centro de servicio autorizado de Nikon. Si lo que he sugerido que el problema no soluciona, sugiero que contactas Nikon support en para ver lo que proponen.

Battery incompatable

Just because someone claims a battery is compatible does not make it so. Nikon knows the specs of their batteries. Third-parties have to reverse-engineer to work out the specs, and they don't always get everything right.
Stay with Nikon batteries, unless you want to jeopardize your camera just to save a few dollars.

How do I know when an EN-EL! for the Nikon Coolpix 5000 is fully charged? what do the following conditions indicate? 1. Charger red light flashing 2. charger red light steady 3. charger red light...

Charger flashing red indicates the battery is still not full and is in the process of recharging.
Red light steady indicates your battery is fully charged and ready to operate with your Coolpix 5000.
When red light is off it indicates there is no battery inserted or the charger is not pluged in.

I have a Nikon D40 where the battery cover latch has broken through on the bottom of the camera body. It's similar to a door jab busting where the latch fits into the door jab. It looks like the bottom of...

You'll have to get that from Nikon, ( the bottom cover ). I doubt if you will find it else where.
