Card pin bent - Nikon D100


Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. It's very likely that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, remove batteries and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. The jeweler's screwdrivers that you see at the dollar store will work fine. Another tool that I sometimes use is a stiff wire with a bent hook on the end to get very flattened pins started. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed). Just keep nudging it upward/straighter a "tiny bit at a time". Whatever you do, don't try to unbend it with one push/nudge, you won't be able to do it.

It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's the best that you can get it, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

Hi, i took a series of shots nothing on card


Maye they were accidentally saved to the internal memory and not the card?

approved cards follow:

The following is a brochure for your camera from the digital archives:
http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/lineup/digitalcamera/slr/d100/index.htm
originally the camera had the following storage specifications: CompactFlash™ (CF) Card (Type I/II) and 512MB/1GB Microdrive™

---
If there is an internal memory, then sometimes the memory holds the pictures you took, and not the external memory card.

Do the Nikon D100 and the D70 share the same in camera Compact Flash unit - not cards - but the hardware to accept and read the CF card? I have a bent pin in the D70 and want to know if I can change out...


I understand what your're looking for.

The D100 is basically an N80 with digital guts. It doesn't share the same chassis as the D70, although it does share the same excellent battery.

Other than that, the D70 was a new design, so it doesn't seem too likely that they would have the same CF sockets.

That being said, unless I had them both stripped apart on the table in front of me, I wouldn't make any bets. It just seems like there would be slight differences in mounting holes and configuration.

NIKON D100 LCD DISPLAY FLASHING CHA ERROR WITH ANY CF 1 GIG


I had the same problem and thought I had looked closely at the pins in CF slot but after finally taking it to a repair shop, the tech showed me a bent pin. It really wasn't that apparent first time around. He told me its a common problem as long as they use the CF cards. I had the pins replaced and my D100 is working great. Best of luck.

Nikon D100 shows # of pictrues left - on the display -


This is normal. Page 17 of the D100 manual says when the main battery is inserted the display will show the number of exposures remaining. If no CF card is inserted it will show E.

My D100 will not accept CF cards


You can always try the reset button. It is under the flap where the USB/Video out/ and power connector is. It is just above the power connector.

Stuck shutter D100 Nikon


The R06 is the buffer indication, not part of the error. It would appear more work is required. Other components may have failed, or the shutter itself may be bad.

I'm afraid this one is not a DIY. Nikon is pricey on repairs, you may fair better checking the repair service search here on Fixya.

Card error or camera error?


I am having the same issue with every CF card I put in the camera. But when I put the CF cards in other card readers, the pictures are able to be viewed. Not sure why the camera isn't recognizing the pics on the cards???

Displays pictures remaining with power off


I'm not sure what exactly your question is but this sounds normal. My D50 does the exact same thing. It displays the number of frames left on the LCD on top of the body when a card is in, and an 'E' when it is not, even when the camera is powered off. The only way to comepetely turn this LCD off is to remove the battery from the camera.
