    Thanks, but that is what I did the first time. When I took the battery out and reinserted it, while the switch stayed in the off position, the camera turned on again! I am looking for a permanent solution, without having to resort to warranty service.

    I am having the same problem, I remove the battery and it doesn't happen again for a while. This is just ONE of the problems I've been having!

Memory Card Indicator always blinks


Since a couple of months, my "out of warranty" D90 is having a problem.

Even after shutting down the unit , sometimes (post of the time) the green led is blinking (at random speed) untill the battery is 100% down (after half a day).
Switching memory card , or formatting memory card does not help.
Even without lens , problem occurs.
I tried also a other battery pack , same problem...

Anyone has an possible reason why this happens , or a 100% working solution.

PS: D90, battery packs and charger are 100% genuine NIKON.
Regards, Rik

Why can't Nikon D90 or D7000 not start up with LCD screen when turned on?


On the D90, set Custom Setting F1 to "Both". When turning on the camera, turn the switch two notches, past the "On" position to the backlight position before releasing it. This will bring up the information screen.

On the D7000, set Custom Setting F1 to "backlight and information display". Turn the camera on the same way.

It's not quite as convenient as having the information display come up automatically, but you should be able to train yourself to turn the camera on by turning the switch all the way.

Nikon d80 won't turn off. Stayed on after viewing slide show on TV. Operates properly with switch in "off" or "on" position. Tried:1. removing battery. it restarts with switch...


It may be as simple as a broken or worn out on/off switch. If the switch shorts out, the camera will always be on or always be off. The problem could also be the switching circuitry. If you need service, you should call Nikon's Service Department at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687)9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

D90 does not switch on


Do you have fresh new batteries for the camera?

If so and it still won't turn on, then try the following website for service for your Nikon D90:

Nikon D90 that does not want to shoot pictures


The camera may not be sensing that a lens is attached. Try removing the lens completely and then attaching it again securely.

Nikon D90 Memory Card Access Blinking


It's a deadly common problem of D90. Fixation:Simply go to the DSLR repair shop and ask them to change the power circuit board of the camera. Will take $60-70 if the board available. Reason of issue:The power control IC get short and feedback the battery power to the battery causing the draining out and other problem like the top LCD back lamp turned ON after turning on the camera. Careful:To avoid this issue in future, after full charge of the battery, do not put it in the camera right then. Wait for the battery to cool down for 5-10 min and then put it in. With the full charge, the battery hold high ampere for a short time. It could damage the power distributor IC suddenly if you put it in the camera right after a full charge.

Slow Shutter Speed on Nikon D90


I suggest that you try a system reset for your camera and then complete the following adjustments to see if your camera will respond like it did originally.

Nikon D90 green reset dots. Press at the same time to reset.
Nikon has an easy reset feature. I use it every time I pick up a D90.
My standard operating setting is only a few clicks different from the reset defaults.
I reset everything every time I use my camera, much as a pilot uses a checklist before every flight to prevent any switches from being in the wrong position. When I don't check first, I often have left my D90 in some screwy mode, like 2,500K WB and ISO 3,200, from shooting in the dark the night before.
My checklist is therefore Reset, Program, Basic, Medium, and A3. Allow me to explain:
1.) Reset: Hold down the +/- and AF buttons (next to the green dots) for a few seconds, and the D90 comes out of whatever crazy mode it was in and returns to sanity. The top LCD blinks and everything is back to normal.
Reset leaves the detailed menu tweaks alone and resets only the big dumb things I might have changed overnight.
Once Reset, I change these next:
2.) Program: Spin the top left exposure mode dial to P, program auto exposure.
3.) Hold QUAL and spin the rear dial until you see BASIC, and spin the front dial until you see [M]. You'll always see these on the small top LCD, and if you first tap INFO, you can see it more clearly on the huge rear LCD. (Feel free to use other settings if you have a good reason.)
4.) Hold the WB button and spin the front dial three clicks to A3. This gives warmer (more orange) photos that I prefer.

Excerpt taken from: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d90/users-guide/index.htm

Good luck and happy shooting! I have a D80 and would love to get my hands on the new D90. Make sure you also buy a quality filter for your lens UV0. The quality of the lens is just as important as the body it's attached to.
