Re: symbol of a lock

I had the same problem - try this. Switch to playback mode by hitting the play button. In playback mode try the menu button (It worked for me). In the settings scroll down to the reset option and reset all camera settings.

Hope this works for you

Re: symbol of a lock

Read the manual- you have somehow initiated this feature to prevent removal of existing images.
There may be a key/padlock symbol button on the body or a similiar instruction on the menu screen.
There is usually a comprehensive manual in PDF on the disk to supplement the booklet.

Red eye

Greetings mccombs7,

There should be a button corresponding with a lightning bolt symbol. When red eye reduction (pre flash) is on, then there is a symbol with an eyeball next to it. Depress the button until you get to the desired setting, which should be the lightning bolt alone.

I hope this helps!

No pictures recorded/black screen

it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.

Images appear to be very noisy or grainy

When DIGITAL ZOOM is set to ON in the MODE MENU, the lens can zoom into the Digital Zoom portion of the zoom by pressing the zoom (T) button. When you see the zoom indicator on LCD enter the red portion (towards Tele), the image in the viewfinder will become closer. However, since the D-630 is using the digital portion of the zoom, the lens doesn't physically zoom, it takes the existing image and enlarges your image using an electronic program. This can result in a “noisy” or “grainy” look to the image. This is normal when using the DIGITAL ZOOM. The DIGITAL ZOOM can be turned OFF to prevent you from using this portion of the zoom. Locate DIGITAL ZOOM in the Mode Menu and set it to OFF.

Telephoto images

The D-630 has a 3x optical zoom and a 4x seamless digital zoom. In order to use the digital zoom, press the OK/MENU button on the back of the camera. Press the right arrow key to access the Mode Menu. The first setting under the CAMERA tab is DIGITAL ZOOM. Press the right arrow key to highlight this setting and then press again to select ON. Press the OK/MENU button to set the DIGITAL ZOOM to remain ON. When you press the zoom button with the T on it, a zoom indicator will display on the right side of the LCD. The W represents a wider area of view as you zoom out, and the T represents telephoto as you zoom closer to the subject. When the zoom indicator is in the red zone, you are using the digital portion of the zoom. images taken in the digital zoom will appear “noisy” or “grainy” which is normal when using the DIGITAL ZOOM.
