Question about Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera

Open Question

Has anyone had a problem with the pop up flash not working at all on the d300? It shows up in the control panel, but won't charge or show up in the viewfinder. I have tried removing the battery, redoing the default settings, and nothing seems to do anything...

SOURCE: In camera mode, screen shows a blend of image and digital spectrum analyzer bars blurring the image

the ony way is to get the CCD replaced with a new one. Contact NIKON for free replacement as this comes under manufacturing defect.

SOURCE: Viewfinder Blank but shows information

From your description it would seem that the shutter component in your lens has failed. Although it is a little strange because the two symptoms you describe are not usually seen at the same time. The fuzzy pictures with streaks on them is a result of a shutter that doesn't close properly, the black screen with just the camera system text on it is a symptom of a shutter that is not opening properly. As for what caused the problem - possibly corrosion or contamination. Was the camera exposed to excessive humidity in the time it was unused? The shutter components are extremely delicate and can easily become stuck or sticky. This is what I believe has happened to your camera. It may not have failed completely but it may be sticking open or closed such that it is not performing its intended function. This will require full disassembly by a professional.

SOURCE: dark monitor

Since the D40X is an SLR, (single lens reflex), it is not possible to use the LCD monitor to frame your pictures before they are taken.

To view what your images look like after you have taken them, you need to use the 'monitor/play' button marked with a rectangular box

SOURCE: D300 control panel

No, it is not a malfunction, and it is perfectly normal. It is just a heads-up-display of how many pictures you have left. THere might be a way to turn it off, so consult the user manual, or go to this link.

SOURCE: exposure/shutter release

its the memory buffer. the booklet says that the "r" means remaining. i think the blinking is just the camera saving the pics to the memory card. i think the memory buffer is full and you have to wait for it to finish saving. if you want to be able to take more continuous pics i think you can turn down the quality and it will take more. hope this helps

D300 pop up flash button broken


Do you mean that the flash won't pop up? The usual cause is either impact to the flash unit or sticky liquid spillage on the flash causing it to stick down. Unfortunately Nikon stopped selling parts on July 13th so unless you can find parts on Ebay you will need to send the camera to Nikon to repair an impact problem. If the flash button is stuck it may be broken.

Fee error on d300 with Sigma lens with aperture ring


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and then forget it's there. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on lenses without an aperture ring.

Scooter won't move


Things to check: Drive/Free wheeling switch, brake release lever (this activates an internal micro-switch that enable power to the drive system, battery box connectors (condition of contacts - corroded, missing, loose. etc.); main control cable (corrosion. lose or missing pins, etc). If all these are OK, could be controller or drive control potentiometers (speed, forward, backward) on the handle-bar (tiller).
Good luck!

My nikon D-80's flash won't pop up, yet it also won't go past the flash sync speed of 1/200 while flash is down


Was the camera impacted? Sound like the flash up switch if always closed. Remove battery. If you carefully remove the flash cover (two screw underneath) by first inserting a business card under the flash on the rewind side (yeah, we haven't come up with a better term!) at the back and slide it forward freeing the flash down latch), and do not touch the flash tube as there is 300 + volts across it if it is charged!

Look at the pivot for the flash on the release button side at the back, you will see a small switch. the top part may be under the activating rod - reset it above the rod and it will now work properly

Once again, be careful - there are 300 volts across the flash tube if it is charged

Nyko charger won't charge


Had same problem with blinking lights and not charging.
Plug charger base in (blinking lights), remove controllers, and plug USB cable into front charge slot (behind hinged panel). This reset charger base and lights stopped blinking. As FYI - the USB was connected to other device (charging it). Add the controllers and correct charging lights show up - including the controller 1 and 2 symbols. Controllers now charging.

I am a Spanish amateur photographer and I repaired my Nikon D300 with the same fault. In my blog there is a tutorial. In Spanish, but you can translate it with Google.

Just bought a used d300 and it won't power up. It


Sometimes, checking the battery's voltage discharges it. Try not doing that once and see what happens. Also, it wouldn't hurt to clean the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.
