    hi try to reset ur camera...To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes...

If you can very vaguely see the icons or pictures displayed on the screen even though dark it maybe either a problem with your inverter or Lcd backlight. If no images are seen even though you look carefully then it may be the onboard vga controller. It maybe worth checking to see if your laptop is under warranty with Hp see link.

The camera won't register an image to take a picture of.


LCD monitor electric film contacts must be fixed. If you can not do it yourself then please contact with the nearest authorized Canon Service. I think it is too easy to fix it so it is not need much money.

I have a Nikon D80 SLR camera, and have purchased an Opteka 650 x 1300 mm zoom lens (fit on). I have changed the setting on the camera to manual, and it will now take photographs, however the images are...


You can't meter through that lens. If the images are too dark, either slow down the shutter speed or open the aperture. Keep going until the picture looks okay on the monitor. If you know how to use the histogram, that's even better. If you go too far and get images too light, reverse the process (faster shutter speed or smaller aperture).

If you have another light meter, you can use that to get a ballpark exposure to start with. Alternatively, take a reading with your other lens at the longest zoom.

My d40 has a image in viewfinder, will not take picture.


What lens are you using with the D40? Is it an AF-S lens? And is the Mirror Lockup on? Chech the Custom Settings menu. If mirror lockup is on, turn it off.

You probably have "bracketing" turned on. In your menu settings, search for bracketing and make sure it is off.

Image reduced by dark edges


An adapter tube has to flare out at the end or it will cut the corners off at the wide angle setting. Telephoto should be ok though.

Dark image....even using flash.


The problem here is likely the auto setting. Put it to sunny, clear day instead of indoor picture and you should be ok. Also, point it at neutral colored objects when you take the picture and allow it time to adjust by holding the button in partway before depressing it fully.

Images too dark or too bright


Metering has gone on the .Can you set the camera to Aperture priority or speed priority?Set to either permanently if you cane then you should get a standard exposure. The inside shots may appear dark, but all the information is there and a treak in an image editor will brighten them up. Cant do the same for too bright images though if they burnout then that's it. a repair is not likely got a birthday any time soon Got some one that luvs you enough to buy you the next one.?
