Question about Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

2 Answers

I bought a Nikon D90 a few weeks ago. It worked

I bought a Nikon D90 a few weeks ago. It worked perfectly for the first couple of weeks and then started to work intermittently (on a trip to Paris, of course). When you pressed the shutter down, nothing would happen. You could view photos alright and everything else seemed fine. Then, it would start to work for a while - everything would be fine, then nothing the next time you pressed the shutter down. We tried turning it off and back on, taking the battery out - sometimes these work work, other times not. Very frustrating. Any ideas?

Your camera may be faulty. Or you might not be "in focus". The D90 in any of the auto modes won't take a picture if the 'in-focus indicator' isn't on. If that indicator is blinking, then it means that it is not able to focus on the subject. It's all in the user manual.

As this is so new and so obviously faulty, there's no point in mucking about. Return the camera to the retailer for a refund or replacement. If you're based in the UK note that your Sale of Goods Act rights to reject the camera are severely diminished if you accept any attempt to repair the fault.

Intermittent faults are a pain to trace and repair, and any unauthorised attempt to fix the camera yourself will invalidate both the Nikon warranty and your Sale of Goods Act rights. The only thing you can try is to see if there are any firmware updates, but your fault is not a known firmware issue and so it's not likely to be worthwhile.

I couldn't find a reference to a blinking green led when the d90 is off.

I would refer you to Nikon tech support for this one.

Autofocus on Nikon d90 doesn't work well.


Remember, autofocus needs a difference in contrast to lock on to a subject. It's hard to focus on a solid color so move your camera slightly to find something better to focus on.

SLR Camera : Nikon D90, dropped from 5ft and landed on Road


There is an almost certainty that your mirror and shutter is going to experience problems in the future. Any fall of that nature is SURE to jar the shutter and the mirror very badly. The shutter is probably damaged already. Go out in the bright sun and shoot on shutter priority at the highest shutter speed (I think the 90 is 4000 /s?) and see if the shutter makes a stuttering noise...Also go into your menu and set the mirror to "Lock up" (for cleaning purposes), if both of these things work ok, you should be ok for a while. But do not depend on the camera for anything really important such as weddings unless you have a backup camera...

Nikon D90 battery reset


Seems as if you've killed the battery. You might try charging it again.

Does the camera work with a different battery? If so, I'd just buy a new battery and toss the old one.

Nikon d90 - can't take the picture


You just found the Nikon D90 F-- error message solution!
I had the same problem with the Nikon d90 F-- error message which drove me nuts!
I called Nikon, they walked me through a lengthy reset procedure which didn't work. After spending a few hours researching online, I found the answer.
It is not the memory card or nor a defective camera body. The lens does not need to be rechipped.
The F-- error means the camera is unable to communicate with the lens and is caused by a poor connection between the ground contact pin on the lens and the metal mounting ring on the camera. Most people buy the camera, install the lens once and then encounter the error. This one time lens installaiton does not give the contact point a chance to seat itself properly. You will find that if you hold down the lens release button and twist the lens as if to remove and reinstall the lens about 10 times that the problem will disappear. You don't even have to actually pull the lens away from the body, just press the release button and twist on and off and allow the friction to provide a better electrical contact.
Too bad Nikon doesn't tell their customers about this simple fix. Other than that, great camera. Good luck.
