Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Red line on every photo taken with Nikon D40

Recently I noticed a fine red line near the bottom left corner of every photo taken with my 2 year old Nikon D40. I took it to Nikon (Malaysia) and they wanted RM750 to replace the CCD. I told them to go fly @#%, for RM750, I can probably get a new body. When I took back my D40, they kept my non refundable RM20 deposit. Lesson # 1. Never send your Nikon back to them after the warranty period. Lesson # 2. Think twice before buying a Nikon.

What I did with my D40 ?- Nothing. I can live with the red line for the time being. Probably, give it away to some kid later and get a Canon or Olympus or Pantex or even Sony but not another Nikon.

And your question was?
A new CCD for £128 - that is a total bargain. If you think you can buy a camera half as good as the D40 for RM750 you are deluded... although I agree that the CCD shouldn't have gone in such a short time - I would guess that Nikon UK would have repaired it on good faith - as long as the camera was obviously in otherwise good condition.

I have a red line through my photos.


Answer ID 16497 Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? --> With some DSLR cameras, a normally clear LCD screen is used to display Auto Focus area brackets in the viewfinder. When power is supplied to the screen, you may sometimes see a faint vertical line appear in your viewfinder. This is perfectly normal and is just part of the finely etched circuitry used to power and illuminate the liquid crystal segments of the AF area brackets.

Nikon d40 motnior blank while taking picture.


That's entirely correct. Live view cannot work on SLR's whilst the photo is being taken due to the requirement for the mirror and live view sensor to flip out of the way during image capture.

Live view on SLR cameras is a misleading description, it's really a live preview instead.

I have recently noticed a very thin vertical line (primarily red) in the photos taken with my D70. Can you tell me the cause and the cure?


Hi!
Cause - faulty CCD imager.
Cure - imager replacement.
It can be done only by Nikon authorized service center and if you're out of warranty - it will be expensive.

Sorry for the bad news.

I recently purchased a canon powershot sx20 15 and it is slow!


You need to do two things. 1. Take a Q-Tip dampened in rubbing alcohol and clean the battery contacts inside the compartment. Clean the battery and the charger also using the same method. 2. Go into your main menu and restore all factory defaults. You should be all set after these steps are taken. Thank you, Dana

Red line on all photos


sad.
Try calling Nikon and asking if they know of any issues.. It's possible (somehow ..hopefully ..unlikely) that they know it's their own fault and will fix it. Nikon does have a reputation to uphold.

Otherwise, it is generally more expensive to have this repaired than to get a replacement. Is possible to find a camera online with perhaps a broken LCD, which may have a good sensor to replace yours with. Ask a local technician the feasibility of this. The sensor in your camera is almost definitely the culprit, although it could just be a flimsy connector.

Took extraordinary pictures with nikon d40 but can't edit them


You have your camera set to RAW format. It is not a compressed file, it is a full size file. Opening this in editing programs will either crash your computer or will refuse to open because of the size of the file. They are not damaged but your computer cannot handle the files. You should take them to a photo shop and have them put the files on a cd and consult your manual to change your camera to JPEG format.
