My brand new d60 got wet taking pics in rain

I have a rubber cover for knocks etc but the camera has died.
Surely it cannot of got that wet or wet enough to kill it.
I have had in warm room with lens off to drive out any moisture.
Is there any history of supsepability to water damage.
The warrenty specifficaly excludes water damage.I can probably claim insurance
but i am so dissapointed.Until then i had taken maybe 1000 pics
It was raining quite hard but i was being careful ,or i thought i was.
Camera just never turned on again
Battery is ok
Do they have some sort of moisture saftey device in them
thanks in advance jt

If I were to use a camera in rainy conditions a lot, I would get one that uses an external flash. Internal flashes can blow a camera with one wet picture, and it happens quite often. Tell em it just stopped working one day I guess. They will not fix it if you tell them that wet story.

Why does my Nikon D60 while on auto focus or quick shutter speed either not focus and take the pic or focus and not take pics?


I have a 5D Mark II that has acted up like this. 99% of the time it will reset itself it you power off, remove the lense and allow them to sync up. Try this, it may work for you too!

"memory card can' tbe used. Card may be damaged."


For some reason the card has corrupted. Maybe it's bent or something similar - or it's just an odd problem. Try first to power down and take out the card. Check the contacts for any dirt or similar and clean. Put the card back and try if it works.

If it doesn't work you might still be able to download the pictures to your computer with a card reader

That is a problem that has to do with the Flash...make sure your flash settings are not turned on. If the flash can't find an image...it rotates and usually never finds the image. It's reading in a Flash mode.

I just bought a Nikon D60 on ebay,Theres a black dot in all pics


My guess is that you have a dust spot in the camera on the mirror. This is not a user fixable ptoblem unless you are very well versed on camera repair. I would take to a camera store and have them clean the mirror.

Nikon d60 won't play back pictures


Sounds like your computer or the software program you're using to download your pics is set to automatically erase the card after the download.

Brand new D60: This battery cannot be used.


yep ...look in the menu ...of the camera ..and select the type of battery u are using ..there are 2 kinds of batteries ...one of them are alkaline ...and the other I'm not sure ..probably nickel or lithium ..or something like that ...anyway there are choices there ..and you just have to try 'am one by one ...
it will also accept only high quality non chargeable ones ...so ..even if they work in other device ..in this kinda cameras it will see 'em as empty if they arent great in quality and amperage ...
