Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Nikon D50 While shooting pictures the shutter button stopped work

While shooting pictures the shutter button all of a sudden stopped working, I can press it but it does not take the picture. I am not sure if I may have touched or pushed something to changing a setting or what. I am obviously a novice. I have had the camera about 5 years and use it when the point and shoot is not quite enough, mostly when shooting my grandchildren and architecture when traveling.      Currently we are in the BVI or the winter and I do not have my book with me to help trouble shoot. Any assistance will be appreciated.     Thanks, Sheila Whiting

TURN ON CAMERA. SEE IF THERE IS A MESSAGE. NOW, TURN OFF CAMERA. TAKE OFF LENS. REPLACE LENS- MAKE SURE YOU HEAR A "CLICK" TURN ON CAMERA AND TRY AGAIN. OK?

Sounds like a settings issue please provide more information such as what is your camera set at; ISO, Shutter speed, F-Stop & how are you using it, manual mode. Aperture priority, shutter priority or Auto? I would need this info to further direct you in trouble shooting your issue.

Nikon D50 Just Quit Taking Pictures!


The imaging board is one of the two boards on the bottom of the camera. however, black images are usually a result of a bad image sensor itself (the 'CCD'), and the cost to replace that is far more than what your camera is now worth (if it is even still available)

Shutter stays open


According to what you say, it seems that you selected B (Bulb) as shutter speed (and MANUAL mode).

First, check whether you are on MANUAL mode ("M"); then, check your shutter speed. If it's really in "bulb" mode, all you have to do is dialing the speed button down to figures that match your subject's light conditions and your other preferences involved in the exposure (ISO, lens apperture).

No image in sports mode


Sports mode gives you a high shutter speed. Continuous just allows the camera to keep taking pictures as long as you hold the shutter button and keep the autofocus moving.
You need very high Iso capabilities (6400+) and very fast lenses (f1.8, f2.0, f2.8) to shoot indoor sports and night games under lights and stop motion without a very powerful flash system. Standard consumer stuff just can't do it and even with a good flash it cannot work very far.
You can set the camera to night mode and it will give you your highest iso and slow shutter speeds but you will end up with motion blur.
I shoot a D300($1600) and a 70-200mm F2.8($1900) and I can just barely get away with it. To do it right cost about $8000! I'm now professionally shooting just to pay for the next camera. Hobby too Hell in a hurry.

I have this problem too - Nikon have looked at the camera and said I set up a custom setting so that the focus only works when you press the AE/AF Button (!). I also had a problem with the flash not working - its looking like this is a known problem. I think I was sold a Turkey

Nikon d50 continuos shooting


Should an answer be given ??? TRY ANOTHER APPROVED MEMORY CARD. If the problem clears it's the card. If it doesn't it's either the camera or you haven't set up the camera correctly. READ THE MANUAL.
