That means that there is something wrong with your memory card. that or its too big. i got a 4gb memory card last month and it was too big. i think the biggest size you can get is 2gb.

Took the memory card out of my camera yesterday. when i put it back in it displays CHA on the screen. what happened? i can't use my camera.


The CHA error indicates an issue with the memory card in the camera.

Try another card and see if that works ok.

Also, always format cards in the camera.


In case the error comes back on a new card, you will need to send the camera to Nikon.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this free solution.

The picture wont shoot


Hi,
looks like you don't have the aperture ring on the lens set & locked to the minimum aperture. I believe there is a red marking for the smallest aperture on the lens (has the largest f/-number, depending on the lens, could be 22 e.g.) and you can lock this in with a tiny switch. This setting is needed to allow the automatic exposure to work properly and can lock the camera down if not set.

CHA?


I found this answer on the Nikon web site.

3) Camera displays “CHA” in top LCD. The camera has detected an invalid partition type or is not working properly. Reformatting the memory card may allow it to be used. If an approved memory card causes the camera to display the "CHA" indicator contact the memory cards manufacturer for assistance.

Please note that the default disk format used in Windows XP is FAT32 and if a card is formatted with this setting on an XP system, a D1 series camera will report "CHA". Reformat the card as "FAT" to use in the D1 series camera.

NIKON D100 LCD DISPLAY FLASHING CHA ERROR WITH ANY CF 1 GIG


I had the same problem and thought I had looked closely at the pins in CF slot but after finally taking it to a repair shop, the tech showed me a bent pin. It really wasn't that apparent first time around. He told me its a common problem as long as they use the CF cards. I had the pins replaced and my D100 is working great. Best of luck.

How to display my subject that im shooting on the screen i have a nikon d100


The D100 does not have a Live View capability. The screen can be used for menus and image reviews, not previews.

My D100 will not accept CF cards


You can always try the reset button. It is under the flap where the USB/Video out/ and power connector is. It is just above the power connector.

Continous shooting with D100 - it doesn't work...


Mine too. It's a worn-out selector switch. Jiggle it and it'll work again. Time delay same. Our college has four Nikon D100s with this problem. Poor switch contacts.
