    I'm having a similar problem. I, too, get error message. I have tried everything. Just as I'm ready to take the perfect shot, it freezes! I zoom out, then in...sometimes remove the lens completely, and that sometimes works! I wonder if sometimes I'm too close to the subject. Seems to be something with the focus??? I have a 28-300 Tamron zoom.

SOURCE: Nikon D50 LCD Display does not work

NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

SOURCE: Auto bracketing on a nikon d50

no. if you want more than 3, you will have to manually bracket those beyond the initial three. alternately, you can get a reading for settings then change to manual and continually adjust your aperture setting from whatever under exposure level you want to whatever over exposure level you want.

SOURCE: Nikon CoolPix Flash Problem

This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

SOURCE: nikon d50 highlights problem

That's the overexposed highlights display, to warn you when highlight details may be lost. Disable it by pressing the up arrow twice. First press shows you the histogram, second press shows pic only, no other info. It will remember this setting for all photos display (until you change it).

SOURCE: Nikon D50 flash not synchronizing

Ok this is a crappy fix but it works for me.

If your flash isn't syncing correctly make sure your on auto flash. when your flash flips up and you get the beep push the piece that holds the flash just a little forward. and walla your flash syncs up.

Nikon D50 will not autofocus, the menue item 02 Autofocus is no highlighed and I can not set it


You should check two switches.

First, on your lens, be sure it's set to M/MA not M. That puts the lens in auto focus mode.

On the camera there should be a switch that shows C/S/M. If switched to M, it's on manual focus. Change this to S for single auto focus or C for continuous auto focus.

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

Nikon D50 reads [-E-] in window not viewfinder and won't shoot.


This is the error code for having a lens with manual or auto aperature adjustment in manual mode with the camera in anything other than "M". You need to put the lens in the max aperature (usually it's red) and then move the small red switch to the red dot. I don't think anything else will give you this error.

I want the on board flash to turn on manually


If you operate the camera in green Auto mode you don't control the flash, it controls you. Choose any other exposure mode (P is good if you normally use Auto) and the flash will only pop up when you press the release button on the side.

Settings or Broke


You need to put the aperture ring - that's the thing that's closest to the camera on the lens - to the highest number possible. On the 70-300 Nikkor, That number is 32.
This will solve your problem! :)

NO LCD display when shooting with brand new D40 ><


Most DSLRs (like the Nikon D50) don't have live view. In other words, in order to see the picture you must take it first.

About the auto review off, go to menu, "pencil" submenu, and the option is there (scroll until you see it)

With respect, you should read the manual. It's very comprehensive and needed. :)
