    None of my camera buttons work. Only the shutter button and both dials seem to work. It still takes pictures but won't even display the picture after it takes it like it usually does.

Why is image not displaying on LCD monitor?


Need more info. Does the menu display? Then LCD probably good. If the menu does not display, then LCD (or its driver circuitry) is probably bad. Not display after taking a photo? Or not display when you push the arrow button to turn on display. Check to make sure card is in camera. Set menu to factory default to make sure some setting in the custom functions isn't turning off the LCD. Also check the brightness level.

How to set self timer for D90


Instructions for this are on Page 179 of the D-90 users manual. First go to the menu and select the custom settings menu then scroll down to "timers/AF Lock."

Select this then select the number of shots you want the camera to take at one time on the self timer setting. Exit the menu.

Then go to the top of the camera and find the little button to the right of the control panel which contains a series of stacked rectangles.

Depress this button (camera must be on) and the control panel will clear. Rotate the wheel on the back of the camera while holding the button down until you see a little clock symbol.

If you have set it in the menu to take only one shot, you will see only the little clock. If you have set it to take multiple shots you will see the series of stacked rectangles next to the little clock.

Depress the shutter fully then walk or run to get in the picture. Just before the picture shoots, the autofocus light will flash warning you that the picture is about to be taken. The camera will shoot in the amount of time you have selected in the menu.

If you want to shoot another delayed shutter picture, repeat the procedure using the button and wheel.

My Nikon D200 just started locking when I depressed the shutter. It gave me the R25 reading in the view finder. If I depress the ae focus lock it fires. What is going on? Cmaclennan@verizon.net


Check your Custom Setting Menu, a1-a10:AUTOFOCUS.

Press Menu, select the Custom Menu Setting (looks like a pencil).
Select "AUTOFOCUS" and move to right.

a1 AF-C Mode Priority. Set to "Focus"

a2 AF-S Mode Priority. Default is "Focus", change this to "Release". This will enable the camera to fire anytime you press the shutter, regardless of if it's in focus or not. Use this setting if your having problems locking up, especially using some different lenses.

Try these settings. They may work for you.

My nikon d70 wont focus at all


  • Make sure both lens and body are set for autofocus. There are two switches near each other with "AF" and "M" settings.
  • Check the camera's focusing settings, or do a factory reset (from menu) to 'start over'. Usually helps to have AF-Assist on.
  • Try setting the AE/AF-lock button (upper rear, near right thumb when holding camera) to turn on AF. The camera may respond better to this than half-pressing the shutter release.
  • Make sure the lens is fully attached to the camera. You shouldn't be able to rotate the lens without depressing the lens release button, and you should be able see a tight seal between the two.

Auto focus does not work in creative modes


That is a custom function of the camera that can be change back to default with ease. While in one of the creative zones press the menu button and navigate to the 5th and final tab on the top right. 8f5da8f.jpg
This is the Setup menu 2. In this menu, select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” . This will open a submenu of numbered options. Select #04 and set it to 0: the default AF/AE lock on a half depress of the shutter. 7528356.jpg
That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.

My Nikon D80's viewfinder stays black when camera is on. Playback


dj & izik13,
If you can both acces the settings menu let me know if you can change any of the settings. Have you tried to reset? To do it you have to turn on the camera and hold down the two buttons that have a green dot by them on the top by the shutter release (the +/- ) and the AF button by the top menu display for longer than 2 seconds, just remember you'll have to reset some of your favorite setting all over again, but it will get things back to the original factory settings. Let me know if that worked

Shutter release/AE lock and control panel display


Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

No pictures recorded/black screen


it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.
