Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

In the exact same setting, the flash on my Coolpix L24 camera sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. The photos are either extremely bright or very dark.

Also at times the photos have a yellowish cast to them.

SOURCE: Panasonic TZ1 flash problems!!

Panasonic knows about this and can fix it. It involves replacing a circuit board. I sent them my camera (Elk Grove Village, IL repair facility) at the beginning of Dec with a letter giving six web sites reporting the problem and asking them to fix it free of charge. I don't think the camera was on warranty, but I received it back, fixed, and with no charge, in about a week. Panasonic really came through on this and there is clearly no fix other than this one... except to stop trying to take flash pictures.

SOURCE: flash charging light blinking all

You have not specified the make and model of the camera in question but here is some information that can assist you.

There are two types of to flash usage. One type is where the flash is built into the camera and may automatically pop up or activate when the light is too low to make photographs with existing light. If this is the case the problem is in the internal circuitry and is possibly not fixable without special instruments- perhaps an entire circuit board needs to be replaced.

The other kind of setup is where an external flash unit is placed on the camera and connected to the camera's circuitry via a synchronization cord or a hot shoe atop the camera. The flash charging light is activated by the trigger voltages coming in from the external unit. Here too, I don't think that this is a do-it-yourself repair job without circuit testing instruments or a replacement circuit board.

If the camera and flash work properly after being tapped, this does indicate an intermittent connection but if is on a tiny circuit board it will be difficult to detect and repair this problem. Besides the test equipment, precision soldering gear is required. Cameras with interlocks, that don't allow you to make exposures when there is not enough light or if there is a flash malfunction may incorporate a special chip or micro-circuit to enable this automation. Unless one is a technician who is familiar with this issue, an accurate diagnosis is nearly impossible.

If the camera is one of higher value or is still under warranty, it should be returned to the factory or an authorized repair station to be fixed. I n some cases the repair bill can exceed the value of the camera and replacing the camera my be a more economical decision..

If the camera is the type where the flash unit is external, some cameras can be damaged by excessive trigger voltages. There are protective modules to prevent this but once the circuitry is damaged it may be beyond repair,

If you can supply more specifics- please do so and I may be able to offer more advice.

PS- Even small electronic flash units can harbor dangerous or even lethal voltages. Under certain circumstances the can deliver a fatal electrical shock or cause burns or nerve damage. If you are not savvy with this kid of gear- definitely reffer repairs to a qualified technician. SAFETY FIRST and I hate the odor of burning flesh!

SOURCE: overexposed photos in otherwise normal settings in casio ex-s500

It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here:
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.

Nikon Coolpix L24 camera. It doesn't take pictures. I mean that camera turns on nicely, the lens unfolds, you can even view images that you previously took, but when you press the button to take new photo,...

Check that your digital camera is not in playback or review mode.
Make sure the memory card is in the camera and that the card is properly formatted.
The Memory Card may be full. Download the images to the computer or delete some to make way for new photos.
Check the charge on the batteries. Replace if necessary.
Have you been using the flash? It may be recharging. When it is recharged, the camera will be ready to take photos again.

The display shows that the card is not formatted..Format card ? How to solve this ? When I proceed to change the format.. It comments that the images will be deleted. I'm in need of those images.....

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I have a Nikon coolpix L24 camera but pc does not recognize camera when I try to download

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

The pictures were too bright

Try to reset the camera to the original settings to see if that sovlves the probem.
I think its under Menu then Tools then scroll to Reset. If that doesn't work then
you have a Lens malfunction.

My Nikon Coolpix L24 camera's battery compartment spring-loaded latch is operational. However, the lock appears to be missing or broken and the door won't stay shut.

I had the same problem. I found out that the rubber band that is used for celery can be wrapped twice around the camera. Works great.

I keep getting the message "battery exhausted" on my Nikon Coolpix L22 camera even when I've replaced with new alkaline batteries. They are not rechargeable batteries though. I've tried...

Try rechargeables anyway just in case.Sometimes with age these cameras don't work well with alkalines. If that still doesn't work then I would suggest contacting your local Nikon authorized service center.

The pop up flash stopped working on my Nikon Coolpix L110 camera. Camera still works, but without the flash, the pictures are less than desirable. What can I do to correct this problem?

Check your settings first. If this still doesn't work then you'll have to take/send your camera to an authorized Nikon service center.
