Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

1 Answer

Just sent my Nikon 18-135 lens in for an estimate to repair. Repair is roughly 185.00. Would not mind having the lens fixed if I was certain same issue would not arise again. Does anyone have similar experience? Thank you

We get those in for repair from time t time and I cannot say that there is an endemic problem with that lens. repair is and you should be fine. Make sure you protect it and the camera from shock, impact and bumps. The shock and vibration can do al lot of harm in the long run.

Nikon 1 won't turn on after dropping it. Is there any way to fix this without having to buy a whole new unit or having Nikon fix it for nearly the same cost?

So many things can be broken, dislodged or forced out of alignment when a camera is dropped that it is impossible to make an assessment without looking at the camera. You should contact Nikon USA or a camera repair shop and have them look at the camera and give you a repair estimate even if they charge for the estimate. It may be something simple or it could be complex. When they give you an estimate without actually examining the camera, they give you a worst case cost. Although the Nikon 1 is not a high end camera like my D800, it does cost several hundred dollars and repair is probably worth pursuing. Once it is repaired, I would talk to your insurance agent about adding a camera floater to you home owner's policy. I pay about $10 per $1,000 coverage per year for my cameras with Farmers.

Diaphragm stuck

It's serious enough that you will not be able to fix it yourself. You should send your lens to Nikon for a repair estimate. You will find information on the Nikon USA website regarding where your closest Nikon Repair Depot is located and return procedures.

Camera lens is stuck in open position and even if I remove the batteries and replace them, there's no activity whatsoever. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This is a problem you will not be able to fix yourself. Contact the Nikon USA repair depot nearest you for a repair estimate. Go to the Nikon website for the closest one. Once you have an estimate, you can decide if it pays to have it repaired. Remember, prices have come down since you bought your L110.

My AF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D IF lens does not achieve infinity focus anymorw and wanna repair. How is that done?

You can't do it yourself. You will only do additional damage and add to the cost of repair. You need special training and expensive specialized equipment to repair and align a lens. I suggest that you go on the Nikon USA website and find the closest Nikon Repair Depot. They will give you a repair estimate.

Hi My Nikon D70 only now produces black photos. On speaking to Nikon suppor they state that this requires a replacement CCD however is this a known D70 fault and thus should be fixed for free? or is...

This is a 2004 camera model. Even if it was a known problem, Nikon would have fixed them out of warranty for free for only a limited period of time. You've gone way past that time. If you still want it fixed, get an estimate from Nikon and search the internet for other service centers that repair Nikons and get their estimates too. Then, make your decision.

Can a broken lens on a nikon coolpix be fixed


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Anything can be fixed, its more of a cost thing now.

It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.
