If there is a problem with the flash itself or the mainboard connection to the flash it will not charge. If the flash won't charge then it won't go off when you take a picture. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the flash with a good used one and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to replace the mainboard. Good used parts can usually be found online for cheap; that auction website doesn't pay me to type their name, so I don't, sorry. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Nikon D5100 vs Nikon D3200

They both take superb pictures. The D3200 is slightly easier to learn how to use, while the D5100 is easier to use once you learn it. That is, the D3200's menus will guide you through all its settings, while with the D5100 you can change those settings with less work once you learn the proper buttons to push. The D3200 has a higher resolution, but even the D5100 will take photos that can be enlarged to 8x10 and larger.

I suggest you go to a good camera store and try them both out. See which one better fits your hands. You don't want to buy a camera based on specs, or other people's opinions. You want a camera that best works for YOU. Having said that, the D3200 is probably a better first SLR. However, try them both out and choose the one that's better for YOU.

Why won't the flash hood stay closed?


Look at your camera's body with the lens pointing toward you. In the upper right quadrant find the Flash Mode button and push it until the flash is turned off (look for symbol on the camera's display panel). The instructions are on pages 50 and 51 of the D5100 manual. If you do not have a manual, you can download it from the Nikon USA website free by following this link:

Nikon D5100 camera flash does not pop-up. Any suggestions?


You can't pop up the flash in the Auto mode. In this mode the camera decides whether to use the flash or not.

Try switching to one of the PSAM modes. Does the flash then pop up when you push the flash button?

Is adding grip for nikon d5100 solve the problem of auto focus with sigma 170-500 lens


No. This lens lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the camera to have one. The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Adding a battery grip does not change this situation.

The D5100 only autofocuses with lenses having an internal autofocus motor. Nikon designates such lenses AF-S, Sigma calls it HSM. Lenses without the motor will only autofocus with the larger and heavier Nikon cameras such as the D7000.

Can I use one nikon d5100 with one sakar mc zoom 80-200 No. 803489


If your lens has a Nikon mount then yes, you can use it on the D5100. You'll have to switch to the Manual exposure mode and you won't get any exposure help from the camera's light meter.

My nikon D-80's flash won't pop up, yet it also won't go past the flash sync speed of 1/200 while flash is down


Was the camera impacted? Sound like the flash up switch if always closed. Remove battery. If you carefully remove the flash cover (two screw underneath) by first inserting a business card under the flash on the rewind side (yeah, we haven't come up with a better term!) at the back and slide it forward freeing the flash down latch), and do not touch the flash tube as there is 300 + volts across it if it is charged!

Look at the pivot for the flash on the release button side at the back, you will see a small switch. the top part may be under the activating rod - reset it above the rod and it will now work properly

Once again, be careful - there are 300 volts across the flash tube if it is charged

D5100 won't power on with Sigma macro lens atttached


This is not a solution but the same kind of problem.

I just bought a Nikon D5100 and found that my Sigma 105mm macro has a problem. The camera will not power up, but if I turn it on, untwist the lens and then twist it back in, the camera powers up. If I leave it for a few seconds, it powers down again. Provided I keep taking photos, it works, but this is not acceptable because it can take several seconds to get a focus on a close-up, and by time I get the focus, the camera powers down again.

I never had any problems with this lens on my Nikon D80. I also use several lenses, all of which work well with both cameras. It's only the Sigma that has the problem. And I did clean the contacts with a proper contact cleaning solution and a swab, but still no joy. My lenses are made by Tamron, Pro Optic, Nikon and Sigma, and the only problem lens is the Sigma.
