    I recharged the battery.. which was almost gone and now it has stopped acting up. Could that have been the problem?
    Thanks

    I think that i was so enthralled with all the new buttons that I didn't realize that the battery was nearing the dead zone. Since recharging it the
    screen as been fine. Should I still send it back?
    Oh and thanks so much for your help

Flashig areas show HIGH KEY or HIGHLIGHTS in image, these areas indicate where exposure compensation can be made. They also change to normal function on first magnification point.

Check the manual on highlights also good reading in the histogram section and you will start to understand about contrast and exposure.
Have FUN.

It would seem to be a faulty connection. Not as it should be - no alternative but to return it.

    Well I would not think so.
    But check th manual-
    I assume you have a Li-On battery and these can just die- one moment on next nothing but usually the camera will give an indication when it is getting low.
    So check the manual[there is usually a more comprehensive one on the CD] to find out what sort of warning you get - the flash could be it- but more usually its a text message like Low battery or a battery symbol comes up,

    Did you check the manual - I knowe so easy to overlook stuff - lets get stuck in take pix
    Instead of calmly sitting down with the book and sorting out what it can/cannot do.
    But if it is OK now -let it be
    But as soon as it does act funny[to you] check out the manual and if in doubt send it back.
    If you are happ - tick it solved please - I need the votes

On some cameras, once you use the internal memory, you must format it and completely erase it before a regular memory card will work. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, never use the internal memory again.

This problem (the screen with no picture) can be caused by a number of problems). One is that a connection with in the camera has disconnected. Another is the possibility of the LCD being bad or broken (some of these LCDs are hard to detect broken screens). Another problem could be with in the circuits has stopped working. Another could be that there is a problem with the CCD sensor. If any menus can be shown, then the problem is within the lens or sensor or something related. If you can see nothing on the screen, no matter what you pick, then the problems are harder to detect as to what is wrong.

The blinking indicates blown-out highlights. Those are the areas of your pictures that have been overexposed into pure white. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the correct fix in most cases is to reduce the exposure to bring back details. Losing details in the shadows is generally more acceptable. But this is just a warning: the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for.

While viewing a picture, pressing up/down on the multiselector cycles through the different available views of the picture.

MY NIKON D50 SCREEN HAS THE WHITE AREAS OF PICTURES FLASH BLACK AND WHITE


This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

As for the focus problem check if you have set the front control to AF not M, also check if the lens is set to A not M.

Nikon D40 - Flashing black on the light/white areas of inside & outside pics


It sounds as if you have changed the viewing setting so that the camera highlights over-exposed/highlight areas of the image.

While playing back images, press the multi-selector (4 way cursor) up or down to cycle through the various options.

This should be explained on page 51 of the cameras manual.

Hope this helps.

Check in the user guid for your camera about their recomended shutter speed setting for the flash.

Try using the camera and the flash in "A" (automatic) to start with.
