Cleaning cassette I do not have any knowledge of camera fixing and such. So if I am correct, there is a cassette to clean the inside of my camera (the one you suggested to me earlier)? And that should fix the dirty video head?

Service fee for D5100 lens / sensor cleaning


You could ask a Nikon service centre closest to you.
You could try to clean it yourself. But only with the correct tools and enough knowledge about the camera. Cleaning kits for DSLRs can be bought in almost every camera shop. Perhaps you even can order a set with Nikon. Please if you do it yourself, inform yourself before you begin.

This is not something I would recommend you do without the proper knowledge or alignment tools. You would probably just end up with a brick instead of a camera. Sending it to a repair center would be very expensive. Possibly much more than the camera is worth.

Hi,

It sounds like the tape itself is damaged. Get an head cleaner cassett and clean the mechanism. This will clean the wheels and heads that tape runs over. Also try a new tape cassett to see what happens and listen to the camcorder for any crunching sounds as this would suggest that something has broken inside the camcorder.




Good luck.

Keep getting clean the contact area of the card message, even after cleaning card...need to use camera...what to do?


The camera is not reading the card correctly, so it's giving that message. The fingers of the card and the contacts of the card inside the camera need to be cleaned, as a first step. You can use a qtip and alcohol to clean the fingers inside the camera- do not bend them or use a lot of force, but try get them as clean as you can. Hopefully, this will work. If it doesn't, there is a chance that the card is bad. Try another one that has worked, if you have one, then you will know if the card's bad or not. Other than trying those steps, service will be required. Make sure you get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can often exceed replacement value. Good luck, and hope the cleaning fixes the problem.

I changed the battery type now it keeps turning off


First, make sure that the new battery type is compatible with your camera -- not all types will work with all cameras. If you have the correct batteries and they are fully charged, your problem is likely due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time.

It may be something more serious, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the startup problems. I hope it works for you.
