Question about Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

1 Answer

Nikon D90 Built in flash will not stay in locked position.

I've had my Nikon D90 for about a month and after approximately 700 shots, the flash will not stay in locked position when pressed down. I explained the problem to Nikon and they said to send it in to their repair facility. I hope this doesn't happen often as the UPS shipping with insurance was $67.

Nikon D90 flashed CHR and next time using camera LCD was black/grey with stripes and no pics HELP!!!


The CRH error message means that the lock tab on your memory card is in the locked position. The purpose for the lock switch is to allow you to set your SD card so that you cannot accidently erase your valuable pictures. Remove your SD flash memory card from the camera and hold it in your hand with the label toward you and the angled corner to the upper right. Look on the left edge of the card and you will see a very small slider switch. Make sure the switch is in the fully up position then reinsert it in the D90. If the camera is not generating a false error, your camera should work correctly.

I have a quantaray qtb-7500a for an older n80 nikon but i want to use it with my d90 it has a af module nk


The QTB 7500A will work with the D90. However, you will not be able to use the iTTL mode of the D90. Use it exactly the same way you've been using it with the N80, letting the flash control the exposure.

Got my Nikon d90 for 3 months now,but encountering error problem with my Nikon D90 w/ 18 105 vr lens.sometimes when i'm ready to shot it appears on the Top LCD,error F--,..Pls. help guys...Thanks


This is a common problem with this camera/lens conbo. I "solved" it by removing the lens, then reinstalling it - but hold the lens release button down, and rotate the lens a nuber of times (in the camera body) before releasing the button. It appears that the issue is poor electrical contact between the lens and camera body. If there is a poor contact, the camera will not know if thereis a focus and will lock the shutter release. With this poos contact, the camera will only fucntion in manual mode

Hope that this helps

I have D90 dslr camera last few months was working very fine but last days its shutter not opening propely after click only half image show


Your mirror is not fully opening, make sure you have no dust or object jamming the mirror. Do a cleaning with the mirror locked up in the raised position.

Built-in Flash will not lock down:


There's a latch on it that should hold it down, as long as the shutter release isn't pressed with a need for flash. In the manual modes, it only fires when you release it up, so it should always stay down when you push it down in the those manual modes. FOR SURE, if it won't hold down when the camera is off, the latch is broken.

I'd take it back to Nikon and tell them to fix it. There's really no way to break it through use unless you stuck something in there, which is not likely.

DSLR D90 Built in Flash Will not Stay down..


I know this late but for anyone else who's had this problem. I just fixed the flash on my camera by using a really small1.2mm flathead screwdriver. The problem is that the mechanism that's supposed to catch the hook has gotten off center. Just stick the screwdriver into the little hole on the left side of the flash (right side when looking at it) and then as you turn it you should be able to see the object that's supposed to be catching the hook. Make sure that object is in the correct position and your camera should work again. Hope this helps!!!

Nikon D90 rear curtain sync will shoot flash twice


That is most likely the TTL preflash and should not show up in your final exposure.

Try setting the flash control to manual (e2 under the Bracketing/Flash menu). That should give you only the one flash at the end.
