Question about Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

1 Answer

It is possible to turn off the LCD backlight from the menu, but when the camera is turned off it defaults to the LCD backlight on, and the card access light continues to flash, and the battery drains

This just happened whilst the camera was not being used! The battery was not changed or even a fully charged "hot" one. Suddenly the battery was completely flat so that there was no display at all on the LCD. Replacing the battery with a fresh one brought up the problem with the LCD backlight being permanently on and the issue of the card access light flashing even when the camera was turned off.

SOURCE: Low Battery Indcator Flashes

You can check the status of your battery, including chargeble life remaining, in the Setup Menu. You need to have the CSM/Setup menu option to display Full menus, not Simple, in order to get battery status. So see if that battery status selection says you need to replace the battery.

Since you can shake the camera to get full battery, it's possible the battery contacts (on the battery or in the camera) are dirty, so check that.

If you do need a new battery, spend the few extra bucks to get a genuine Nikon EN-EL3e from a Nikon dealer. I have learned that many off-brand batteries do not properly implement a needed reserve, and "Genuine Nikon" batteries bought online from non-dealers are often counterfeit, just relabeled junk.

SOURCE: Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70

Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
d70_87x1.jpgAs it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, http://nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/D70-Service-Advisory.page click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

Sometimes, checking the battery's voltage discharges it. Try not doing that once and see what happens. Also, it wouldn't hurt to clean the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

What do you do when camera says internal memory filled.


Digital cameras store pictures on their internal memory. Often users transfer their photographs to memory cards, because memory cards store more data and are accessible in computers, other digital cameras and other devices. When you want to move pictures stored on the internal memory card, do so through the camera's menu
1 Place the memory card into the digital camera.
2 Turn on the digital camera.
3 Access the digital camera's menu. Digital cameras have a button labeled "Menu" near the LCD screen. Push this button to open the menu.
4 Select the Pictures option. Select the photos on your internal memory using the "Select" or "OK" button on the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Click "Copy" and choose "Memory Card" to copy the files to the memory card. If there is more than one picture that needs copying to the memory card, perform this step for each picture.

Have a good day! Smile : )

I replaced the lcd screen. Now when the my camera is turned on i have a black screen with nothing on the lcd. Not even a menu display. I have pushed the lcd ribbon as suggested but no luck. Need advise....


The backlight is not turning on, it's the smaller of the two ribbon cables on the LCD assembly.

Make sure you have a backlight on your new LCD (not everybody sells it with the backlight!) or reuse your old backlight with the new LCD.

Check the backlight cable, is it ripped? Even slightly? If so, you need a new backlight.

Hello, my camera doenst complete the access and than tell me to (turn off and try again). all i can see is the info on the memory card. Can u help me please?


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK. This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks,

KenSolutions

My acer extenza 4420 backlight wont turn on


most likely:

1. backlight is dead (search for replacement displays).

2. backlight power-inverter is dead (check ebay for your model +inverter to see if there is even one in your model)

3. (very unlikely) wires which power the backlight may be worn from bending over time.

for the time-being, connect an external monitor, if possible, so you can access your system. connect it, power-on, and it should work by default -if not, hold the Fn key and press F8 (usually this key) to enable external display output.

and.. good luck!

Lcd screen stuck in usb mode?


Try removing batteries and card and leaving them out for a while to allow camera settings to default.
Replace batteries only and see if you get "Card Error" message.
If you get this, then try again with card fitted
Check firmware version

Possibly card storage too big. Upgrade firmware to version 1.77

If you have no user manual there is a PDF version available to download here:

Hi,
Does the camera take pictures?
If you take the camera near a lamp, can you just about see menu items on the LCD?
If so, it's possible that the backlight ribbon cable slipped out of the socket. To check open up the back of the case and carefully lift it up a bit just to see the ribbon cables. The narrow one is used for backlight. Try to disconnect it (open the tiny black flap in the connector) and connect it again (close the black flap). Have a quick look at the connectors on the ribbon cable and make sure they are clean. If it still doesn't work I'm afraid most probably you have a faulty backlight and will need to replace either the whole LCD (easy) or just the backlight (fairly fiddly job). In any case, you'll probably need a donor camera (ebay ;) to scavenge for replacement LCD.
Good luck,
Raf

Try to get any menus with out the camera plugged into the PC or any card inserted.
Will it get a menu?
If you still have NO MENU and Nothing on the screen, the problems deepen.
Possibly a defective or broken LCD.
If any of the lites turn on when you turn on the camera and no LCD shows, you may have a bad LCD.

Appears to need some kind of repair.
