Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera
I am beginning to have problems with my D50 not powering up correctly. At times, I can turn it on and view pictures through the LCD monitor, but it won't take a picture. This is an intermittent problem as it will suddenly begin working again (like the next day AFTER a wedding)! This has happened several times and has caused me to miss some pretty important pictures. It has never been dropped or abused, and has had a fully charged battery when this occurs. I don't know what to do. It is working at the moment and I am reluctant to ship away a functioning camera for repair. It's like taking your car to the shop for a repair because you hear a rattle under your hood, but as soon as the mechanic listens for the rattle it's gone!! Please advise on what I should do. Thanks in advance.
I have the same problem, caused by a small amount of water getting in the command dial slot. If I leave the camera switched on I can push the battery in and out firmly a few times and it comes good. I suspect a dirty film from the water in the contacts. I am trying to get a repair manual to have a go at getting at the contacts to give ithem clean.
I have tried pouring a little methlated spirit in the command dial opening - with the battery out and holding it at an angle to prevent the meth going right through the camera. This hasn't changed the condition.
