Question about Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-70mm Lens

Open Question

Nikon D-70 viewfinder has a diagonal strip

Hi,

It seems like the frame that was around the data panel in the viewfinder was detached and now it lies diagonally in the viewfinder.
Does anyone know how to open the camera without destroying it, in order to reattach the strip back to it's place?

Thanks in advance.

Since the camera is an SLR, (single lens reflex), the CCD image sensor is behind the shutter until you take a picture. Sorry, but you cannot use the LCD to take pictures.

According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$

SOURCE: Diagonal RGB lines

It might just need degaussing. If the monitor is equipped with a degauss button, try pressing it. If not, it might eventually go away with time - sometimes when CRT monitors are moved and change orientations odd color distortions due to magnetic fields result. After a while the magnetic field fades and the colors will be back to normal.

Otherwise, upgrade to an LCD - easier on the eyes, and a lot easier on the back. :)

The image will not display in the viewfinder when taking the picture. Picture does show after it is taken but can not see it when trying to take it.


You mean the LCD screen and not the viewfinder, right? That's the way the D60 works. Like other SLR cameras for over half a century, it offers a viewfinder (that's the little window at the back of the "hump") for framing and composition. The LCD screen is for review (looking at the picture AFTER you take it) and for menus. More recent DSLRs offer a LiveView capability where you use the screen for framing and composition. Nikon introduced this feater with the D3 and D300, released a year or so after the D60.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

There's a diopter control near the viewfinder to adjust the viewfinder to your eye. Try adjusting that while peering into the viewfinder and try to get the focus brackets and the data at the bottom of the viewfinder into focus.

My display screen is not showing the image of the picture. I have to look through the viewfinder. Only showing settings


That's the way the D40x works. Nikon introduced the LiveView feature with the D3 and D300, introduced more than a year after the D40x. The D40x works the way SLRs have worked for half a century, giving you the viewfinder for framing and composing.

Using the LCD as a viewfinder, how to set camera for?


You don't. The D40x works as SLRs have worked for half a century: you frame your picture through the viewfinder. Only more recent dSLRs have the LiveView capability.

How do I use self-timer


Press the Shooting Mode button (just to the left of the viewfinder, marked with overlapping rectangles) and rotate the command dial until the self-timer icon (sort of like a one-handed clock) is displayed in the control panel.

Frame the photograph and focus.

For best results, cover the viewfinder.

Press the shutter release button all the way down to start the self-timer.

You can cancel the self-timer by selecting another shooting mode, or by turning off the camera.

Custom Settings #24 lets you change the delay to 2, 5, 10, or 20 seconds.

I like to use the screen to shoot pictures, but my screen is always dark or i have only the information data on the screen. How i can use my screen?


You can't. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, using the viewfinder to frame and compose pictures. The screen is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Only more recent dSLRs have the live view feature allowing you to use the screen for framing and composing.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area...


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.

The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This may not necessarily be an error.. just a setting that you have put in place in your menu.

Nikon D60 use of Display to take pictures rather than view finder


The Nikon D60 does not have "live view" capability, so you'll need to use the viewfinder to frame you shots. If you need "live view" capability, consider purchasing the D80 or D90 instead with offer the feature...

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash


I've had this problem and Nikon repaired it twice for me at about Aus$200 each time.

Recently it happened again.

Quite by accident, I found that I could lift the black on-off main switch and that it comes off the camera body quite easily together with the chrome shutter button.

Inside was a little plastic tab with contact points.

Merely blowing off the dust inside and then replacing the shutter button and on-off black ring appear to have solved the problem for me.

However, my viewfinder and lcd were working normally and not black as  lsvettek said.

I did have a problem with the viewfinder and lcd on yet another occasion and this was a recognised fault which Nikon repaired free of charge.
