Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Black Spot Hello there, can you help me pls? I've misplaced my manual and need to do something. Have a d100 Nikon and it's got a black dot appearing on the images. I've cleaned the lens with a puffer and that hasn't fixed it. Jessops, who I brought the lens off last year, said there is a self clean option on camera in settings somwhere but as I can't find my book wondered of you could help. If that doesn't correct iy, there's a pen cleaner and if that doesn't fix it, it needs further investigation. I'm no pro and was lucky to buy camera 2nd hand and it's been excellent, just this dot... Any idea's ?

It's probably a speck of dust on the image sensor behind the shutter. If you can't find the cleaning mode in the Menu, set the camera to the M setting and rotate the dial to Bulb. Press and hold the button while you blow the sensor ( blue/green glass ) - BE SURE NOT TO TOUCH THE SENSOR and don't let the shutter close while you're blowing the sensor.

If you're not comfortable doing it, most camera repair shops will do it while you wait.

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.

A black spot keeps appearing in my photos nikon D80


It seems that there is some dust particle on the sensor. Try cleaning the sensor as per the instructions in the manual and then check. In case the spot still appears, then the CMOS sensor might be damaged / burned out and you will need to replace it.

Nikon D100: suddenly all the pictures are black


Ellen,
When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing.
To reset your camera to the factory default settings:
Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
seconds.
These are the buttons marked with a green dot
Take a test photo and see if that works.

Black files ???


Check the shutter to see if it is opening properly. Set a slower manual speed and look into the mirror box area with the lens off.

D100 shooting problems


Can you report what the dial and menu settings are?

My best assessment would be that the dial setting is on something other than Auto, like Manual, and the Aperture and/or shutter speed are way off. Flip it to Auto and take another shot. Report back.
