Hello David,

First thing is "Hong Kong", while your abroad you really need to look at the technologies. Especially from China, you need to make sure if its authentic or if its a fake.

Try to remove the battery for 5-20min, at 5min intervals. While you do this also take off the Memorycard just so it doesn't do anything to your pictures.

As long as the pictures are still in the card, you can get a external memory card reader to view the pictures on your laptop/computer.

I'm just thinking it has something to do with the battery or something inside got jammed. Since you bought it internationally it might be hard to get it fixed for free from warranty. You should check with Nikon to see if they allow international warranties.

Hope this help.

I bought a Touchscreen MP4 Player + Video Camera 8GB from Hong Kong and i cannot figure out how to upload music onto it. It doesn't use iTunes, it uses Windows Media Player. Can you help me get music onto...


Most of the Hong Kong MP3/4/5 and even 6 players merely require plugging them into the computer via a supplied USB cable. You would then merely click on "My Computer" and the player should show up as a hard drive. If you double click on this drive, you may see a folder labeled "MUSIC". If so, just drag and drop your MP3 music files into this folder. Similarly do the same goes for VIDEOS and PICTURES. The exception being that MP4 players usually require videos to be converted to RM or RMVB format (MP5 players usually play most formats without conversion).

Have a canon rebel eos and when I turn the camera on the only ting that shows up on the lcd is the auto description---how do I get it to just show what I want to take a photo of


These cameras won't show the picture on the screen until you've taken the photo, they don't work the same way as point and shoot cameras. So you have to use the viewfinder. Unless your model has live view in which case it's still pretty fiddly and I wouldn't recommend it.

D80 LCD response


If there was an active display, then there was something wrong with your camera.

The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

D4ox lcd not showing 'live view'


Are you certain you used to have Live View on the D40x? Then something was wrong, as Nikon never put it in.

The D40x does not have Live View.

LCD Screen does not work properly


Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.

No, the so called 'live view' ( seeing pictures in real time on your LCD monitor ) is available only on the latest models that are coming out now ( Canon D40 and Nikon D3 and D300 have this feature ).
