    I have a very similar problem. I get dark images, in the same spots in the frame (mostly), and almost always when these areas are sky or water blue. It happens on all of my lenses, so it has to be cleaning or sensor issues.



    I've had the camera for only 2 years and 2000 frames.

Ok, step one - find an appropriate cleaning solution - be it an air blower, like a rocket blower, a pads, alcohol and a qtip, etc. Keep in mind that it's not necessarily true more expensive means better cleaning... but I wouldn't go the dirt cheap route of alcohol and a qtip, though many claim they use it. Personally, I use a blower, but I havn't had anything more than dust thus far...

After that, prep a very clean environment, then take off your lens, and clean your mirror!!! Then when you think it's clean, try your camera again... if you still have spots, then you're going to have to clean the sensor... again, I'd use a blower, especially considering that if you ruin the sensor, you've pretty much ruined your entire camera.

If you STILL have spots, check your lens for dust, both front and back lenses. Still spots? Try another lense entirely (might be scratches). STILL on there? Then you probably have a bad sensor... see warranty information and pray :).

If any of this makes you queasy, look in your phonebook for stores that will offer repair, and try to locate the Nikon-qualified if possible.

My Nikon D50 in picture play back mode is giving pictures in multi colour not as pictures ?


I'm not sure what you mean by "multi-colour mode" but this page shows all of the possible playback display modes and describes them. Hopefully this helps you. I use a D7000 which is quite similar and I've never seen a multi-color mode. Nikon D50 SLR Review

Taking a black and white photo.


You can't, there is no black and white mode on the D50. You will need to take color photos and convert them with photo editing tool.

Check two switchs, one on the camera body and one on the lens. Make sure they are both set to AF. At least that is how it is on my D80

This suggests the mirror is stuck up in the take position. Remove the Lens and look at what is behind it In the rest mode you should see a mirror. If it is stuck up you would see the sensor window Which do you see. with the lens off - can the camera be switched on? This might just drop the mirror The mirror is surface silvered - do not touch it. If it still up then it is a repair shop/warranty replacement job.
