Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

Mottled bright pixels appear on images

Hello,
I have just bought a nikon d40x and got it all set up. However, when looking back at the photos they do not look as they should with sections of differing light divided by strips of random bright pixels. I looked this up in the troubleshooting section of the manual which reccommends changing the ISO and noise reduction but this doesn't help; only reduces the focus.
can anyone help me please? thanks

It would be very useful to see an example image. If you have an online photo sharing page (e.g. in Flickr), could you provide a link for the image?

Otherwise, one can only guess. Try formating the memory card before using it

Picture does not appear on the monitor, I must look through the view finder to see what I,m pointing at to photograph


The D40x operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, offering you an optical viewfinder with which to frame and compose your picture. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing.

Nikon introduced the live view feature, which allows you to hold your camera so it wobbles at arms' length, with the D3 and D300, released half a year after the D40x.

While almost all current DSLRs have this capability, it was not so common five years ago when the D40x was introduced.

Suddenly every picture I take has a big discolored spot in the bottom left corner. It's purplish/yellow-green and looks pixelated


It seems to me, that your problen is coarsed by dust on your Nikons sensor.

You will simply have to clean your Nikons sensor.

Avoid sticking anything inside the camera (mechanical or chemical) if at all possible.
Dust can usually be removed with a "Giottos Rocket Air Blaster", which costs $10 at amazon.com. Note that dust on your mirror should not appear on your photos since the mirror is a different light path from the image sensor. Try locking up the mirror and blasting some air underneath it to remove dust from your sensor.

Hopefully this will help you.

Multiple colour lines appearing in d40x


Can you upload a photo that shows this? You can just take one set to low resolution so the file size isn't too big.

What are defect pixels?


Ocassionally images from digital cameras will have "defect" pixels. These pixels may appear in the final photograph as bright white, green or red spots that are out of place when compared to the rest of the image. Sometimes people call these spots "hot" or "dead" pixels. Usually these pixels, and other types of "digital noise" appear in the darker or underexposed parts of images; additionally, images taken at longer exposure times are much more likely to have this issue. Many Nikon cameras have a "noise reduction" or "NR" process that fixes these problem areas. When NR is activated and image exposure times drop below 1/4 of a second the NR automatically processes the images as they are saved. This Noise Reduction feature is sometimes called "Night Portrait" or "Night Landscape" Scene Modes. If these spots are seen on images photographed under normal conditions (bright light with exposure times shorter than 1/4 second) then the camera may need to be sent in to a Nikon Service Center for repair. Notice the green defect pixel near the center of this image.
