Question about Nikon D2X Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sub command dial is hard to rotate

The sub command rubber dial at the front of my Nikon D2X has become somewhat difficult to turn when my hands perspire. I often have to use my fingernail to get a good grip on it or my finger slips off of it. What can I use to clean it? Otherwise it works fine.All of the other similar dials work fine but they are not used nearly as ofter as the subcommand dial.

This is best for a Nikon authorized camera shop to repair. You have a very nice camera, let a professional show it the proper care it needs.

How can I change the exposures, or f-stops on the Nikon N75 35mm camera?

That depends on the exposure mode. In the point&shoot modes the camera sets the exposure.

In P you can turn the command dial to change the exposure.

In S you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, the camera changes the aperture to suit.

In A you turn the command dial to set the aperture, the camera changes the shutter speed to suit.

In M you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, you hold down the aperture button and turn the command dial to set the aperture.

If you don't have a manual, get one from

STicking command dial on Nikon D70

One suggestion is to use a can of compressed air and blow the air into the small gap between the command dial and the body. That might free up any gunk that has become lodged there.

If it continues you'll have to send it in for service, unfortuately. The good news is that Nikon will clean and tune-up the entire camera, including the sensor. You'll be without your camera for a few weeks, but it should come back good as new.

Gluing rubber cover on rear door of Nikon D2x

i have little faith that this can be done, as i tried doing it with epoxy - my favorite, never-fails adhesive - and it didn't work. i think if you can get your camera to Nikon, though, they'll replace the whole door with another whose rubber isn't likely to come off. i read someone online saying they took their D2x in for some other repair and Nikon replaced the door without even asking him...whether they did it for free, i don't know, but i'd hope so, since the rubber falling off in the first place is really their fault.
