There is a motor/gear assembly inside the camera that moves the lens in and out and covers the lens when it is retracted. When it dropped, you most likely cracked or shifted something out of place. A broken tooth does not stop function, but shudders when it hits the gap. A shifted gear, slips and similarly may cause this effect. If it doesn't open the shudder, you get no picture.

You will need to open it up and attempt to repair the mechanics that drive the lens.

    Sorry it's broken, but I hate getting 50% reviews. So let me see if I can be any more help with getting you running again.

    I have a link here that will take you to a copy of the repair manual for the Nikon D50. In this manual you can find complete steps for standard inspection and
    how to make an adjustment with your camera and it will also provide you with
    a wiring diagram. When disassembling/(re)assembling, be sure to use the
    conductive mat (J5033) and wrist strap (J5033-5) for static protection
    of electrical parts.

    But attached also, the dis-assembly and assembly section are provided with
    full images, so you can understand easily and apply the steps provided
    with your camera. The manual is in RAR format, but you can download PeaZip or WinRAR free to extract them.

    Hope this is more helpful to you.

Err on top of display on camera


Unfortunately, this probably won't be a good situation. Most of the time the ERR(or) message you're getting shows when there's an internal problem, and most likely a shutter error. Not an uncommon problem with the older consumer models like D40, D50, etc.

I get "Err" on the


The ERR message indicates a camera malfunction. In my D-90 manual it says that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter. The only way to do that is to turn the camera off and back on. Rarely, that won't work and you have to remove and reinstall the battery.

The manual also says that it this have frequently or persist to contact a Nikon authorized service center. I would contact Nikon tech support at www.Nikon.com and discuss the problem them before contacting an authorized service center.

Shutter stays open


According to what you say, it seems that you selected B (Bulb) as shutter speed (and MANUAL mode).

First, check whether you are on MANUAL mode ("M"); then, check your shutter speed. If it's really in "bulb" mode, all you have to do is dialing the speed button down to figures that match your subject's light conditions and your other preferences involved in the exposure (ISO, lens apperture).

Dropped Nikon Camera Sadness


Hi Al
not sure if i can help here but will try.
Ive not owned the D50 but i have the feeling the highlights function is similar to other cameras in the Nikon range.

On your cursor when viewing an image, just press down on the cursor maybe once or twice to remove the highlights .This is just a pointer for you like the histogram.

Now it seems like you may have damaged the sensor and will not collect enough light.

Try setting the camera to A = aperture priority and take a shot in bright light...no flash.

Are the images still dark ?

If so raise your iso to 800 and shutter speed to 1/250 at F5.6 aperture in mode S =shutter priority and take the shot in bright conditions.

Are the shots still dark ?

Lines on screen and photos, too bright photos outside


Lines across your pictures or pictures too bright are due to the shutter not closing correctly or at all.
to check this- turn camera on, turn off flash, turn camera around and look into the lens. Adjust the zoom so that the shutter and internal lens comes up to the end of the lens and whatch as you take a picture. You should see the shutter close completely over the lens. If it doesn't move or does not close over completely then there is your problem.
If camera was dropped it could have jammed the shutter open or obstructed it in some way from closing completely.
camera will require repair/ service.
You may have some luck if you power up and down your camera numerous times before taking a picture. The action of the lens opening and closing may free the shutter.

Nikon D50 Flashes Err and clicks


hi..
This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

thank u
rate me!!

Err


If this only happens when using the flash - then it is a problem of flash synchronisation.

If it happens all the time - then one of the shutter curtains may be sticking.

Either way, you should get the camera looked at by a repairer.

D50 won't take a picture!


I was having the same problem.. And since I could not afford to take it to the shop, I tried everything I could think of...
Then I fixed it!!
It seems that the slide door behind the shutter was stuck for some reason... If you remove the lens.. (make sure the camera is in manual mode)... snap a shot so the shutter is up.. then gently slide the panel in the back down....
Once I did that.. the camera was working again.... Hope this easy solution works for you guys....
