It's just flashing "F" and not "FEE" or "F--"? What lens do you have mounted on the camera?

SOURCE: when i try to take

I know of three causes:-

1. The first depends on what type of lens you are using. If you have a lens with a manual aperture setting ring, you need to turn this to its smallest aperture (biggest number) and then move the small locking ab acoss to lock it in this position.

2. Its also possible you have a damaged lens. There is a small tab which fits into the body of the camera and these can be broken. If possible try with another lens.

3. In my case I saw this a few times and it was just caused by the contact between lens and body not being 100%. Tightening lens a little solved it on each occasion.

Hope one of these helps you.

SOURCE: What does the flashing red hand in the upper right

The flashing red light is warning you that the shutter speed will be too long for handholding the camera. Put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and/or use the flash.

The camera may not be sensing that a lens is attached. Try removing the lens completely and then attaching it again securely.

If you know what you're doing - why not. Most probably something has got loose inside the lens and needs to be fixed.

SOURCE: My Nikon Coolpix s230 flash

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!

My Nikon Coolpix s230 flash won't work. It just blinks red in the lower right hand corner. I've tried all the settings and they all won't flash.

Nikon D90 flashed CHR and next time using camera LCD was black/grey with stripes and no pics HELP!!!


The CRH error message means that the lock tab on your memory card is in the locked position. The purpose for the lock switch is to allow you to set your SD card so that you cannot accidently erase your valuable pictures. Remove your SD flash memory card from the camera and hold it in your hand with the label toward you and the angled corner to the upper right. Look on the left edge of the card and you will see a very small slider switch. Make sure the switch is in the fully up position then reinsert it in the D90. If the camera is not generating a false error, your camera should work correctly.

Nikon ML-L3 set up for Nikon D90?


Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the release, while delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To change the camera's release mode, hold down the release-mode button to the right of the LCD panel on the top of the camera (marked with the overlapping rectangles) and turn the command wheel on the back of the camera. The icon at the top-right corner of the LCD panel will change. The quick-response remote mode is indicated by a picture of the remote, the delayed remote mode is indicated by both the remote and the self-timer (one-handed clock).

Just got a 500mm f8.0 Telephoto Lens for my Nikon D90. When I connect it according to the instructions I am certain I have mounted the lens properly to my camera, I have a universal T mount to connect to...


The lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You must switch the camera to Manual exposure mode by turning the mode dial to M. The lens has only aperture, f/8, and so you have to control the exposure by changing the shutter speed and/or ISO. Unfortunately, the D90's light meter will not give you any help here.

You can get a general idea of the exposure by using another lens before mounting the 500mm. From there you can fine-tune the exposure by using the histogram display on the LCD monitor. This is how I do it with my D90 and 500mm lens.

I am using D90 with programe Auto ISO 400, in clear day sun light my picture get very dark, but on same settings in door with auto flash I get very clear result why?


ISO400 is too high of a sensitivity to use in full day light. Set the ISO outdoors to ISO100 and learn how to use your exposure compensation. The meter in the camera is easily fooled in bright contrasty conditions, so if you are getting consistantly darker shots outdoors increase the exposure compensation a stop or two. Another way is to learn how to use the camera in manual mode and you find you will have better control over the exposure.

Won't take pictures


The flashing F-- is addressed on page 123 of your users manual. My camera was also doing that and it was very frustrating. The lens is not being read by the camera. Try cleaning the contacts in the lens and camera body. In my case I had dropped my camera from a very short distance, but it was enough to make the lens not seat right in the body. Have to buy a new lens. Go to a camera shop and switch out the lens and see if it works...mine did. Problem solved.
