Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Okay, I’ve got three problems (more if you
don’t just count the camera!). I have a Nikon D40 which I bought and have been
using with quite a lot of satisfaction generally for a year. The problems are:
Suddenly a load of my files have got new modification dates of 1st January 1980. The date on the camera in the settings is still correct. Only some of the files had been altered (82 became 1980 and 134 remained correct).
I keep getting a soft grey small mark on my files which I do not think is anything on the front of the lens as it looks clean. I can only imagine it is either on the chip or inner optics of the lens. Either way I have to keep retouching it out, although it mainly shows on large one-tone, clear, plain areas.
In the preview screen viewer, I keep getting highlights burning out in a sort of solarised manner, which even if is a warning or incorrect, is irritating to look at. How can I turn this off.
1. If the files were on the computer and not in the camera then obviously it wasnt the camera that modified the dates. If the camera's clock is ok and new images date stamp are ok while the files are still in the camera (you can see this in playback mode on the camera) then its not the camera.
2. The camera's ccd sensor has gotten a speck of dust/dirt on it, Have it cleaned at a reputable camera shop. (Shop here charges $45).
3. While in playback mode, press up or down on the 4-way controller to toggle between highlights, shooting info, custom settings, histogram, or none.

Three easy ways to return to the standard program combination are to:
1.) flip to a different mode and back to P, or
2.) turn the D40 off and back on, or
3.) spin the rear dial back to its original position.
The *P symbol goes away when you've returned to the standard combinations.
The standard combinations are f/4 at 1/60, f/5.6 @ 1/125, f/8 @ 1/250, f/11 @ 1/500, etc.
A shifted set might use f/4 @ 1/1,000, f/8 @ 1/500 or might use f/4 @ 1/2, f/5.6 @ 1 sec, etc. Don't worry, just flick the rear dial until you get the combination you prefer.
