Video Capture Problem

My camera no longer captures images. The view finder appears black when it is on standby and when I turn on record, the image is pure black. The VCR mode still works. When I played previously recorded tapes, everything worked fine. I think the video processing board/chip is toast. How do I repair this? Does any body have a detail service manual? I would like to take it apart. Thanks, MyFix

Sounds like your imaging block is bad or a ribbon cable came loose. You can get the service manual for $24.00 US at http://www.servicemanuals.net You will need a good jewelers screwdriver set, magnifying glasses, a steady hands and a whole lot of patience. Make lots of notes as you disassemble the unit if you ever want to get it back together. After you get it apart check for any loose or disconnected ribbon cables, especially in the area of the CCD block which is the front of the unit behind the lense. Good luck and let us know how you make out or if you need any more help.

When taking photos, the image is not captured when using liveview


Sure you are pressing the shutter realise button half, so the camera can focus?
Only when the middle AF-point (square in the middle) becomes green and you hear a beep, you can press the button compete to make the picture. With live view, you degrade your camera to a point and shoot. Focusing takes longer that way. Can be handy is special situations, but the focusing could be a pain, when you are used of taking pictures trough the view finder.

The CCD image sensor of the camera has failed. It is the component responsible for capturing the image the camera is focussed on, display it on the screen and capture it. If its malfunctioning you are bound to see problems like these. Getting the imagesensor replaced should resolve the problem

Dust inside my d200


The view finder and focusing screen are separate from the CCD sensor. The mirror reflects the image to the view finder until you take a picture. Then the mirror goes up, the shutter opens to expose the CCD to capture the image.

If you have a lot of dust, you should look into a cleaning kit, or have it professionally cleaned. This will show up on your images as white and/or black specks.

Yes some of the Canon's can do this using a small program called "RemoteCapture". See the link to try it out:

Samsungscd23/blank viewscreen for photo memory stick


My advice is that you should by a DV cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!

NEF Image will not open - Macintosh


RAW NEF images from Nikon cameras are proprietary formatted raw data directly from the cameras's sensor. If the images are improperly transferred to the computer they will not be able to be opened and will give an "Unsupported File Format" warning. Macintosh OS X has an "Image Capture" application (found in: Hard Drive/Applications/)that can be used to transfer images. If "Image Capture" is used NEF files will be corrupted and will not be able to be read. Only Nikon View, or manually dragging images from the mounted card, should be used to transfer NEF's. To disable "Image Capture": Double-click to open the hard drive and then the "Applications" folder Double-click "Image Capture" From the "Image Capture" menu choose "Preferences..." In the "When a camera is connected" pop-up choose "No Application" Close the Preferences window and Quit Image Capture After disabling Image Capture, it will not launch when the camera is connected and you can use Nikon View to properly transfer NEF images.
