Takes photo but no picture ( Very slightly exposed)
Tamro AF28 300mm F/3 5 6 3 XRDi VC LD IF Macro for Nikon D700 Intermittent problem Shutter works''but photo not taken with correct exposure. Initially looks like no exposure but looking carefully I can see a faint image.
Data shows F-stop blank and Focal length also blank,
Tends to be somehow linked to autofocus. If Focus is working then image ok .

You might already know this but use great caution when opening any photo flash. The capacitor inside can generate enough of a shock to kill you, even with the unit off and the batteries removed as it stores a "charge".
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery, iPhoto, and Nikon Transfer.
With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.
Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.
Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances.
Okay, if you're getting sharper pictures with a stable camera, that indicates that the shutter speed is too slow. You can get a faster shutter speed by using a higher ISO. You'll get noisier pictures, though.
Up close, you're not going to get much depth-of-field, so you can also try opening up the aperture (small F/numbers). You can also try to get more light onto the teeth.
Your Nikon is a SLR which stands for single lens reflex. The reflex part is the way the mirror that lets you look through the lens to frame the picture flips up to let the light go straight to the film. You can change the lens half way through the film roll because the mirror is down while you change the film and blocks light from getting to the film, just as it blocks the light until you push the shutter button. Have fun with your 'new' camera! I use an even older style Nikon FE2. I like my Nikon 55mm macro lens but your newer camera takes autofocus lenses so you'll need advice from someone else for that.
