Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera

1 Answer


My LCD screen is not working. It doesn't display pictures, or configuration menu. This is my second D50 that has that problem. I returned my 1st one, but can't return this second one. I never drop it. Always keep it in a camera bag. Fully charged, I treat it like a baby. Not sure why this keeps happening. Can anyone help me out with this?

Why cannot you return this one/ It is a fundimental fault seemingly. Doea it take pictures? Is the battery a good one- you say fully charged how do you know? Try another battery. first.

Nikon d50 monitor does not work during photo shooting, must use view finder

This is completely normal. The monitor is used for setting menu items, displaying shooting info, and reviewing images. Like SLR have functioned for over fifty years, you take pictures by composing and framing through the viewfinder. Only the most recent dSLRs have the Live View capability which allows you to use the monitor like a point&shoot camera.

Nikon D50 Flashes Err and clicks

This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

thank u
rate me!!

Hi, I have a Nikon d50. My skills are very poor and I haven't used the camera in 4months. My problem is the picture veiwer is not on and i need to look thur the veiw rather than looking at the screen. Help

Digital SLR cameras are different from other point and shoot cameras, in that you have to look through the view finder, you can not use the LCD Display to frame your shot.

Hope this helps

Nikon D50 LCD Display does not work

NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

Display overlaying pictures on LCD screen

Hi, the only thing I can see in the manual is on page 52 (below). You can scroll through the information provided using the up & down arrow keys on the multi-selector button. Scrolling though to the basic file info should give a clearer view. Perhaps if you select this option the next time you view it will default to it? I don't have the camera to try! Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
