    no response at all and the camera shop are saying it will cost me over £300 to fix!

    I have the same problem with the D70 and the monitor....I have not taken it to a camera shop, as I'm in a rural area and there simply are none available. I was hoping that it would be a simple solution (as in a button that I needed to engage/disengage)

  • lancs007 Mar 27, 2008

    thanks but the only mention of a reset switch I can see in my manual refers to information on the monitor which I cannot see.

    Could you explain where this is please?


  • nsfbr May 11, 2010

    Hmm, that is too bad.  However, I can't imagine that Nikon would charge that amount to give a proper evaluation and hopefully fix.  It is often the case that "camera shops" charge more than Nikon itself will, in part because all the camera shop is doing is sending the item to Nikon and then adding a markup.  

    Sorry I couldn't help, but it sounds like what you need is for Nikon to look at the camera.

    Are you saying that it will not come on even if you hit the menu button?

Good question - Needs Answer that har Ramaraj skillfully neglected to supply with his, what only sounds great, "reset switch' answer. ...without detailing the actual location of said switch that even the existence of is now in question. ...but it sounded good Ramaraj! and isn't that what really counts these days? That's what I just love (NOT) about Yahoo answers. So many useless opinions that don't give a needed answer to the asker. Some almost completely ignoring the question and spinning off into the responder's soapbox soliloquies. Most of the time it's because there are a lot of lonely geeks in desperate need of some kind of recognition. They think they now know everything about any repair now because of that one hammer in their toolbox. A tool which has miraculously been able to smash all their problems to bits. An ego spinning tool Which has caused many to quite prematurely and very erroneously concluded that somehow a hammer, or some method or other of hammering, simply fits into being the prime candidate for a 'fix for all problems' in the universe!! Who Knew, beside that now quickly resigned Particle Physics Scientist who's new found hammer pounded out the new laws of physics of faster than light neutrinos on greased lightening. Before a 'wait a minute here. PROCESS CHECK' came along to question only using the hammer accelerator to measure and justify his/it's conclusions about magic other worldly neutrinos. Like has been said since leptons were knee high to a quarks, "When the only tool you have is a hammer, the whole world looks like a nail." Speaking of which ...does one use a nail to get at that mysterious reset switch, the proof of which is best left to generalized mystery unless you have a friend who works for NSA. They have all the useful stuff in a locked closet of secrets for what could only be some pretty diabolical reasons! My solution? Charge up the old defib hold paddles firmly at key points of the L810, D3100, or any other frozen Nikon device and enjoy the crackle. Caution!!: To insure a completely enjoyable experience ...Please wear Safety Goggles! I've have this problem and read everywhere to find only useless answers and no direct responses from Nikon or any Nikon Savvy Operators. Those guys just don't buy cheap camera and do stupid things with them like the rest of us. Someday maybe even I will be able to not write or help anyone in the cheap seats too.

No video screen

If you can touch the screen and get the menu, then after 15 seconds or so, it goes back to the 'images may appear reversed' message, here is what you need to do....
1) Touch the screen to get menu
2) Touch the "Rear View" button (lower left of screen)
3) It should beep, but not change from menu view.
IF it changes instantly to the 'images may appear reversed' screen, repeat steps 1, 2, 3.
This should fix your issue.

Gateway FPD1530 loses image shortly after powering up.

try booting into safe mode. press F8 while the computer is booting. see if everything stays normal. It should tell you that it booted into safe mode. Once there, change the resolution or the frequency of the display(also known as the refresh rate) by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Once there, click the tab all the way to the right, it should give you color quality options and resolution options. At the bottom, there should be an advanced tab. Depending on our video card this menu can be different from others. Look in that new window for and option to change the refresh rate or the frequency. The value will be in xxx hertz. try setting it to 60 hertz.

The Monitor on my Nikon D80 does not show any image when I try to take a picture - The viewfinder is ok and the camera takes a picture ok and displays it for about 4 seconds on the monitor after taking it....

You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.

You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.
