Question about Nikon D2X Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D2X camera dropped it takes pictures intermittently.

I dropped my camera about 3 months ago. Ever since then when taking pictures in single shot mode, the screen shows the picture all black or all white, and at time it will be whit with digital looking lines across the screen. Almost as if it was a bad connection. 
On the other hand when taking pictures in continuous mode, where the pictures are rapid fire, just about all the pictures will come out. A few in between will be black. Any suggestions

I'd take or ship the camera to Nikon, or an authorized Nikon service center, for repair. you're unlikely to get around this problem any other way. good luck...

Nikon D2x Just stopped taking photos.

To make sure the card is formatted correct, do a format in the camera. I'm not sure if the newest UDMA CF cards are compatible with your camera. But I think you still have an old card, you can format. Please also check all contacts in the camera are still straight. Us a bright light and a magnifying glass.
Also take time to check your battery is still good. I'm sure you have more than one. Also check the battery contacts, if they ate clean and shiny. Only to be cleaned with a dry cloth or cordon swabs.
When you removed the battery, you already did a reset.
Till now I can't think of more to help you.


I love my Nikon

Nikon D2X Not powering up anymore - shorted/blown DC board?

do a master reset, holding WB and ISO buttons down together for more than two seconds will reset camera settings.

then replace the clock battery, let it sit with no batteries for a bit.

try to plug it into an external power supply: EH6 if you have one.

Hi K akima...have followed your advice, but no luck. When I go to continuous mode, it only lets me shoot a single shot, the display briefly reads r 08 then returns to r 09 again. I`ve tried my other lenses...

nikon r09,r11, etc . it mean memory buffer of your camera. memory buffer is a temporary memory for your captured images before it store to memory card.
if r00 it mean, you can't take a picture, even 1 picture... that because the camera buffer memory is full.
the number of memory buffer will also drop if noise reduction on

Problems taking pictures on nikon d1x

There may be something wrong with the camera. Make sure it is set to Single Exposure setting and not Multiples. There should be a control on the top left to change this. Look for an "S". this is what you want. If that doesnt help, you may need to get it repaired.
