Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

Nikon D100 stuck in Auto mode

My D100 has of late frequently randomly switching to auto of its own accord and turning the dial away from and back to manual does not switch it back to manual. The only thing that works is removal of the battery for about 10 seconds and then replacement. This only works for a short time and then the problem recurs. Any idea what might be going on?

Does this also happen when you switch the camera to automatic?
Sometimes without knowing you can put the camera in manual, and have ictures much to light or much to dark. If you are not familiar with manual shooting, please put the camera back to auto (green camera loge on the dial)

Polaroid 690 SLR-The switch between manual focus and auto focus, does not appear to operate normally. Maybe I do not know how to use it, however I cannot manual focus. Are you familiar with this camera and...


Not sure if this will help, but according to the manual, to use manual focus, push the button down until the red portion is visible, and turn the manual focus control dial until the image appears in focus in the viewfinder. Then, take the photo as normal. To return to autofocus, just return the switch to its normal position.

My Woods 59202 Lamp Timer doesn't have a switch labelled "ON/AUTO" as per the instructions, but obviously the only switch on it, labelled "ON/OFF" is the manual override. The problem is...


There are two timers that look very similar.
Woods 59201 programmable timer with settable on-off functions and switch with ON-AUTO
Woods 59202 random vacation timer that has preset on-off functions and switch with ON-OFF
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59201

Random vacation timers are not programmable.
They have internal pins that are preset for random on-off functions so house appears occupied while you vacation.
Random timers do not have AUTO setting, instead they are either ON or OFF.

Technically, programmable timers are also either ON or OFF, but usually these timers use the word AUTO, so you know lamp will turn on AUTOmatically based on settings.

The pictures I take with my Nikon D100 come out really dark. It's dark when looking through the viewfinder as well. What do you think is causing this to happen?


First thing to check is the shutter control or maybe what speed your shutter is on. Check your settings and you'll probably find something is switched to the wrong setting. Try switching everything to Auto, including anything menu operated your manual should explain how to get to your on-screen menu. Try that and if no good, post back and we can take it from there.
With cameras getting more compact and buttons getting closer together and smaller it's very easy to knock a switch the wrong way without realising it.

Kxta824 disa help


Your system has 3 modes of operation, day, night, and lunch. Lunch doesn't have to be a specific time, and you could manually switch between the 3 modes. Most small customers don't even use NIGHT mode, except to control the voice mail system.

Full programming instructions are beyond the scope of the free forum, but in section 3.1 of the programming tool, you set the mode of the trunks for day/night/lunch. No matter what the status of the auto switching to day/night mode, you can still manually switch to lunch by dialing 782 from any phone, and manually switch back to day/night mode (780/781) to turn DISA mode on or off.

Now, you still can have different OGM's for day and night that will automatically work, and manually use the lunch to control the applicaion of DISA. Even if the receptionist steps away from the desk, you can go into 3.2 and turn on some delayed ringing, or anyone can put the system back in day or night mode.

Check the fuses first.  If it's not that, check the switches.  If it's not the switches, then it will probably be the wiring, most likely a short somewhere.

Nikon D100 randomly has "err" code flashing


You need a new shutter box.
It may be worth cleaning the contacts on both camera and lens.
Clean the contacts in the lens mount using a fiberglass "pencil" designed specifically for cleaning contacts. These are available at just about any photo supply store/firm.

send it to nikon. seem like a common problem

D100 shooting problems


Can you report what the dial and menu settings are?

My best assessment would be that the dial setting is on something other than Auto, like Manual, and the Aperture and/or shutter speed are way off. Flip it to Auto and take another shot. Report back.

Switching from auto to manual focus


AF/MF (Auto Focus/Manual Focus) * The AF/MF function works in CAMERA, M.REC mode only. * In most situations, it is better to use the automatic focus feature, as it enables you to concentrate on the creative side of your recording. * Manual focusing may be necessary under certain conditions that make automatic focusing difficult and/or unreliable. Auto Focusing * If you are inexperienced in the use of camcorders, we recommend that you make use of Auto Focus. Manual Focusing In the following situations, you may obtain better results by adjusting the focus manually: * A picture containing several objects, some close to the camcorder, others further away. * A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow. * Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car. * People or objects moving constantly or quickly like an athlete or a crowd. Follow These Simple Steps To Set The Manual Focus 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button. M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus. Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again.
