Re: Nikon D50

I have this problem too - Nikon have looked at the camera and said I set up a custom setting so that the focus only works when you press the AE/AF Button (!). I also had a problem with the flash not working - its looking like this is a known problem. I think I was sold a Turkey

\my D50 is not following through when I press the shutter release on auto focus-am able to take a pic on manual. When pressed, the camera makes a whirring noise but does not finish

Your lens might have an issue caused by some sort of shock or impact. Before anything just try to gently turn the focus ring on the lens while on auto focus to see if it pops back into place. Sometimes this actually takes care of the issue. Just DON'T FORCE IT. If this doesn't solve your issue then contact a Nikon authorized service center because your lens is going to need repairs. Hope this helps!

I get "Err" on the

The ERR message indicates a camera malfunction. In my D-90 manual it says that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter. The only way to do that is to turn the camera off and back on. Rarely, that won't work and you have to remove and reinstall the battery.

The manual also says that it this have frequently or persist to contact a Nikon authorized service center. I would contact Nikon tech support at and discuss the problem them before contacting an authorized service center.

Nikon d40x shutter problem

May be a weak subject to focus or the flash is not ready when you press the button.

Set the camera to auto(green) mode.Try it with a contrast bright subject for as many time as possible.
If the problem persists turn off the camera and reset the camera using the button near usb connection.

Then go to seller for replacement.

D50 won't take a picture!

I was having the same problem.. And since I could not afford to take it to the shop, I tried everything I could think of...
Then I fixed it!!
It seems that the slide door behind the shutter was stuck for some reason... If you remove the lens.. (make sure the camera is in manual mode)... snap a shot so the shutter is up.. then gently slide the panel in the back down....
Once I did that.. the camera was working again.... Hope this easy solution works for you guys....
