Question about Nikon Cameras

Camera will not shoot a picture

In the upper right corner of the digital display there is a flasher "F--". This error seems to be telling me something, but I don't know what to do about it.

The flash will not pop up and the camera will not auto focus. Basically nothing will happen when I try to take a picture except I get the flashing "F--" in the digital display.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The problem was the contact between the lens and the camera. Apparently the lens was loose. Now that the lens is secured to the camera properly, everything works perfect. Thanks for the assistance!

The F-- error means the Auto Focus in the lens can't communicate with the CPU in the camera. Because you also have problems with the flash not popping up, I'm not optimistic that you can fix this yourself. Odds are high that you will need to send it in for repair.

The F-- error could be caused by many things. First, try removing and replacing the lens - the contacts between the lens and the camera may not be connected properly. Also try shutting the camera off and removing the battery, then replacing the battery and turning the camera back on (rebooting the camera) as this sometimes helps. If neither of these help, the next step is to remove the lens and carefully (CAREFULLY) clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera. Gently rub the contacts with a clean pencil eraser and hold the item upside down over a table so that any debris from the eraser will fall onto the table rather than into the camera or lens.

If none of these fix the F-- error then you may have a hardware failure in the camera body itself. If so, the only fix is to send it in for repair - you can't access the interior parts of the camera without special tools that only the repair facility has.

What does the red hand in the top right corner mean and what should i do about it??


The red hand in the upper-right corner is warning you that the shutter speed may be too slow to be handholding the camera. You can try adding light if possible, putting the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, or simply take a deep breath and shoot and hope for the best.

Photos have a black corner. Sometimes upper right, sometimes lower right. The black corner covers approximately 5% of the width and height of the image. Can I fix this myself?


This might also come from a problem with a dealignment of one of he servo-motors (horizontal or vertical) which center the lens during anti-shake adjustment.
If your camera vibraets at start or shows a vibrating image on display then this is the problem.
Then the lens is often out of axis and black corners appear on the display and of course on the picture...
I have not found the solution but have posted a request !
It may only be some disconnected part near the lens but unfortunately nobody shows pictures of HOW to dismantle the Z5 ! and WHERE are these 'bloddy' servo-motors or alignment devices ?...

Internal dust speck on Canon A720is in same upper right corner


If dust is in the camera, it must be opened. I suggest not doing this yourself. Lookup a Canon dealer in your region and ask for support.
