Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I dropped my BRAND new Nikon D60 and the LCD Broke

Im crushed to say the least, this camera is two months old and I dropped it while it was in my purse. (I am shopping for a suitable camera bag asap) Well, my issue is Is this going to cost me a fortune to replace, I priced replacement LCD screens on Ebay for 125.00 and I know that labor is costly. I paid 518.00 for the camera on Amazon in Jan. the price has jumped up again. Bummer. I am pretty sure that the cost to replace the screen will prob. be less then buying new again. The camera was only dropped from about 6 inches, but landed on a hard surface and on top of a miniflaslight that was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thanks for any help.

    Thank You so much for help. I took my beloved to the Camera Shop in town and they sent it out for repair. It is not covered by insurance as it was my fault, accident or not..I am currently waiting for the part that has been back ordered. Darn it!! It is going to set me back about 170 bucks...better then a new camera though. Thanks again. Kimberleykro

    I couldn't help but notice there were more than typos in your response a_m_j42. How about a little capitalization where capitalization is due?

Nikon digital SLR LCD viewfinder

No. The D60's LCD is used for menus, shooting settings, and reviewing pictures after you take them. You have to use the viewfinder to compose your pictures. Nikon introduced the LiveView capability into their DSLRs with the D3 and the D300, introduced after the D60.

Dropped my Nikon D60 on concrete and now it is taking dark photos! I reset it to manufacture settings but still taking dark photos even outside in the middle of the day. Any suggestions on what it could...

Even if I could tell you what you broke without looking at your camera, which I cannot, you would not be able to do the repair yourself. Call the Nikon Service Department at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. They will tell you how to proceed to get a repair estimate.

I dropped my Nikon D60 and now it does not power on I would like to know why???

There are several possible reasons. One is indeed the battery. If the camera powers on with a different battery pack then that would point rather conclusively at the battery.
Another possibility is that the drop damaged or broke the battery contacts inside the camera. Another is that the drop damaged or broke something else inside the camera.
First, try another battery pack. If you don't have one, go to a Nikon dealer and ask to try one. If the camera powers on with that, then buy a new battery and dispose of the old one. If the camera doesn't power on, then you'll have to have the camera serviced.

I just purchased my d60 camera, unfortunately I bought it on craigslist, it came with a nikkor 50mm lense, I wanted a auto focus lense to take some sports pictures, I took it to shutterbug camera shop and...

That's odd that Shutterbug camera shop couldn't tell you everything you needed to know about that camera. I looked it up in a PDF manual because the new "small frame" cameras require different lenses as is the case here Autofocus with this camera is only supported by AF-S and AF-I lenses the lens is equipped with the autofocus motor other types of lenses will not autofocus.

The "kit" lens for this camera is the AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 18-55 F3.5/5.6G VR.

Now if Shutterbug camera shop mounted an AF-S lens and the camera didn't autofocus then they are right in saying it's broke. I just find it strange they couldn't tell you that straight up. You need to install an AF-S lens and try it, again they may have put the wrong type on it and of course it won't work.

I take it that you don't have the camera manual?

If not go into Google search Type in Nikon D60 PDF manual and click search fifth one down on the first page is what you need click on it and download your "new" manual

Here is the link I used

See if that helps, personally I think you just need the correct lens.

I dropped my camera now the flash is broken,

yes of course, there are a lot of brands that compatible with Nikon D-60 e.g Nikon itself, Metz, Vivitar, Nissin, Yong Nuo, etc.

The flash with iTTL support would be an advantage

iTTL is the feature Nikon has to measure the perfect light produced from the flash from the condition of the object

hope this advice help you with your problem

Dust stuck under glass on the lcd screen of my d60

If you purchased your D60 new, you could sent it in to Nikon for cleaning but personally, I'd wait a while if it's not affecting the camera's functions. If you need warranty work within the first year, you can send the camera in for that work, and they'll clean under the LCD while servicing the camera.
