Question about Nikon Coolpix 8400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photos with stripes

My Coolpix 8400 takes photos but the images all have horizontal stripes running through them. It happens with and without use of the flash.

Is this something Nikon will fix for free (I've sent my other Coolpix in with image issues and they fixed that free of charge)...have you seen this problem before?

Re: photos with stripes

There is a slight possibility that it's a memory card problem. Try another memory card, or format this one. You could also try to dry the contacts with a dry fabric.

If it doesn't work, send it for service.

Time stamp on a Nikon Coolpix 8400

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

The pop up flash stopped working on my Nikon Coolpix L110 camera. Camera still works, but without the flash, the pictures are less than desirable. What can I do to correct this problem?

Check your settings first. If this still doesn't work then you'll have to take/send your camera to an authorized Nikon service center.

Overexposure and horizontal-striped image

No, it's not a software problem. The problem is that the shutter doesn't work so it can't control the amount of light taken so the pictures are very bright with horizontal lines. There are usualy two causes - a broken shutter cable inside the lens or the shuuter blades are stuck - may happen if the lens get wet or something adhesive gets in it. It's a hardware problem so I suggest you contact local Canon or other camera service center. It is considered a hard repair so it could get expensive. I don't think it's worth it, so I would suggest you get another camera.

Hope this helps!
