Right to the viewfinder there is a knob to compensate vision problems, this knob i used for people with prescription glasses should use it if they want to look through the viewfinder without their glasses Move the knob either way until YOU see it in focus. Make sure the dot inside to the right is illuminated which means THE CAMERA is in focus.

When using any lens, the view through the viewfinder has small spots like a liquid was sprayed on a optical component. What is this and how can I fix it?


It could be on the mirror, the underside of the focusing screen, or the back of the viewfinder. All three can be inspected visually.

The back of the viewfinder can be cleaned with any window cleaner. Don't spray any directly onto the camera, but rather onto a clean microfiber cloth and then wipe the viewfinder clean.

The mirror and the focusing screen are more delicate. First try a handheld blower (NOT canned compressed air). If that doesn't do it, try a camel-hair brush. Only then resort to wiping it with a clean dry microfiber cloth. Use common sense, and avoid scratching the mirror/focusing screen.

If it's on the inside, the camera will need professional cleaning.

The screen of the viewfinder has a black dot.. i tried to clean it but it cant be removed,..how can i removed it?


Remove the lens of your camera, do it in a clean room, look at the mirror insie the lens to see if the dot is not there rather that on the outside of your viewfinder.
If it is not there it might be on the inside part of the focusing screen. Still inside the camera look at the upper part of the body, the focusing screen looks opaque.

If you still cant find the dot it might be on the inner side of the focusing screen.
Here is a tutorial on how to remove it on a d70 it is essentially the same thing on your camera.
Otherwise it can also be on the inner part of the viewfinder. In this case I recommend to send the camera to a repair shop as the removing of the viewfinder seems to be more difficult on the d3000 than on other camera.

Hope this helps.

Hi Steve, I inform you that the problem only is moisture. Please follow this.
1. Put the camera in sunlight for few hours. After that use it & if you face same problem then
2. You need to visit camera repair shop and they open the camera completely and clean all the inside part of the camera. because you need to clean the moisture inside of lens, viewfinder & sensor too.
So only hope in sunlight. If its solve then fine.

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully...


Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and the light from the lens goes to the image sensor. So...if the mirror is dirty, the picture will be fine but the viewfinder image will be dark or out of focus.

Cleaned inside of viewfinder, now AF focus lights gone


Then you learn, when everything works fine, dont mess with it! Have a look at the gold pins that rely the body to the lens. Also check that your lens manual switch focus is engaged... Try a friend lens to see if its your cam or the lens...

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down


Hello,
It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.

Black particles on focusingscreen


If the specks are just on your viewfinder focussing screen, they won't be on your pics. If they're on both your pics and focussing screen, you need to find someone else to clean your camera. Cleaning either your CCD sensor or your screen yourself can leave scratches. Changing lenses often can suck dust into the inside if the body is dusty. Try another repair shop for thorough cleaning - it shouldn't cost more than $50.
