Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Broken viewfinder eyepiece

Its not "broken" to where I cant see through it, it is just chipped along the top edge. It chipped while removing a right angle viewfinder. My question is "Can this be replaced?". I see two very small screws, one on each side of the viewfinder. Can I buy another viewfinder from Nikon and replace this myself?

    I called Nikon and ordered the part I needed but I can not replace this myself so I will have to try to find someone who can in my area. Thanks justaskjoe for trying to help.

I cant see through the Viewfinder its just all black but i can see on the led screen and i can switch the display to he view finder and see it fine , so is the viewfinder broken ?


It is not likely the view finder is broken, because it is deep inside the camera. There can be many reasons why you can't use it as it should. Did you know you can adjust the brightness of the viewfinder and the display separately? It is in the manual page 31. And if you are with the manual (still online available) have a look on page 16 too.
When the camera does not give the image to the view finder, it also could be an electronic problem, because switching in the camera goes along electronic paths.

View is blurry through eye finder


While looking through the viewfinder, turn the little knob at the upper-right corner of the viewfinder to adjust it.
Refer to the "Adjusting Viewfinder Clarity" subsection of the "Basic Operation" chapter of the manual (page 36 in my copy) for full details.

I have just purchased a Nikon D60 and the viewfinder eyepiece always appear blurry prior to taking a photograph. Yet, when I take the picture it is clear and sharp so the picture is in focus, but prior to...


There's a diopter adjustment control near the right edge of the viewfinder. Look through the viewfinder at a blank wall and adjust this until the focus marks appear sharp.

Top viewing eyepiece is broken. The rubber around the casing is broken also. How can I get a replacement?


Some sellers have some pretty good aftermarket replacements. Give them a look. Sony Center was makeing this job at 2010, but no more; even way, you could try calling at Digital Product Support: 1-877-462-4464 . Also, try asking in this link for Minolta Support site; additionally, I quote some comments about this part...

I got the round eyepiece from Orion Store Site and it fit perfectly. I liked it so much I adapted one to my more recent Panasonic. It was a perfect fit for the D7i. You stretch the rubber around the existing eyepiece.


Also, could try to contact with this seller: EC-1200-KONICA-MINOLTA-EYEPIECE-CUP-Dynax-5-4

Hope this helps.

The flash lamp doesn't pop up.


Mine did the same thing. The problem in mine after extensive disassembly was the plastic had broken inside the flash where the pop up spring attaches.

This was a pretty extensive repair with full disassembly in my case, not for most people.

A workaround is to take a small rubber band, loop it over the top of the camera from the eyepiece for the viewfinder to the lobe in front of the flash. When you need flash, release the flasy and unhook the elastic fromt he front lobe and let it go under the raised flash unit and it will keep it up. If you case lets you, you can leave it that way. Not pretty but functional.

Hi. I have a model S5500 that I have


I have one which you can buy off me... Everything is great with mine except hole where the tipod goes into has had the thread stripped and the flap for the battery door is broken... I also wanted to repair mine but can't find the parts. So I guess I could sell you mine as I have just upgraded to a Canon 40d.

I have broken the glass on the viewfinder of my powershot S3IS, can it simply to un-srewed and a replacement put in - if so where can I get one from?


If only the viewfinder glass is broken, you can put other one to replace it.

It could be glass but I do recommend you to replaced with an acrilic or a plastic part.

You can get it from different soruces: Ebay from a broken camera (S2, S3 or S5), or use transparent plastic film and cut it to the right size.

You don't need to open the camera completely. You will need just to remove the viewfinder rubber protector, and carefully, pull the viewfinder frame that holds the glass. There are four plastic locking tabs (two up, two down).

Best regards,

Nikon D70 Repair


Well, it depends on the extent of the repair. You don't necessarily need to repair the crack on the chassis, just the damage to the eyepiece components. Yes, it's worth repairing. Those D70s are just the right tool for people who want fine art pictures from a camera simple enough for a novice to use. The eyepiece is your most important resource when you're shooting, so you really want to make sure that it works as well as you do!

Replace Battery Cover


to get to the battery door you must remove the back, to remove the back you must remove the top of the grip (shutter button and dial and WT lever). remove top of grip... 1) starting at the bottom of the plastic strip (along the front edge of the grip) that holds the shutter button, slide upward, the strip will bow outward and after about 3/16", the bottom's free. the only other thing holding it in place is a bit of double-stick tape and a similar clip at the top. CAREFUL! there's a spring under the button that's easy to lose. 2) Inside the battery case, front battery, all the way at the top, there's a tiny phillips screw, pull it. 3) peel away the right side rubber grip right by where your thumb meets the W on the W/T lever. 1st hole you'll see is a springy clip, keep going around to the right til you find a screw. pull that. 4) back to the springy clip hole, pushing inward on the finger, the top will come off straight up. leave it hanging, you just need it out of the way so the back can come loose. remove the back... 5) bottom of camera, remove 2 screws nearest the CE label and one outboard of the rearmost battery. 6) viewfinder cap: 4 screws, skinny on top, fatter on the bottom. the cap pops off. 7) lcd cover/frame: pull away from viewfinder(top) edge about 1/4 inch. the bottom's held by fingers; they need to slide to the left 1/8", then that's off. 8) remove screw @ lowerleft of lcd. now the whole back will slide rearward. 1st thing loose is memory door, remove it. slide the back off, out of the way. you'll now see that the battery door is held on by two hinge pins, not one continuous. the rearmost pin will slide left into the memory cover area, and the door will flex enough to remove it toward the front. trickiest part of reassembly is the spring under the shutter button. balance the spring on the camera, put the button into place. hold it in place with the screwdriver through eye of plastic strip, leaves plenty of room to seat the strip. lose a screw? I did, and the least-needed one is the one pulled at #3.
