Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Intermittent viewing screen failure

Camera takes pictures but the viewing screen does not work properly -- has dark grey lines running horizontally across it some times. The screen works properly if the camera is not moved for a few hours but does not work after walking about a 100 yards with the camera on its strap around my neck.

My most-usual answer: Contact Nikon USA (if you're in the US) and ship them the camera. This will cost if not under warranty, which they will estimate up-front, but it is the absolutely best solution to the problem!

My Z1275 has developed intermittent horizontal lines on the view screen when the camera is moved, and on images some times. Get good images if I use tripod and shutter delay. Looks like loose connecti


When having bright lights on a dark background, you can have horizontal lines. That is supposed to be normal. but the camera should give good pictures in bright light. Try setting the camera in automatic. most of the time it is the green camera loge on the mail dial.

LCD woont turn on properly but the camera takes pictures while the screen remains black or in my case dark grey as its not totally black.


The water has ruined the LCD, water and electronics seldom mix, you are lucky it still will at least take pictures. If it is a high end model then send it back to the Factory repair center listed in the user manual (or phone number to find a repair center).

Olympus Stylus 410 Digital is taking grey/black pictures


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Picture comes up with horizontal lines


The viewfinder is failing, or it may be a bad flexiboard, or ribbon assy. The proof is that the pictures look okay, but the viewing is not proper.

If you want it serviced, you will have to send the camera to the Sony authorized service rep. They will be able to change the necessary parts and re-adjust as required.

Black screen in shoot mode


The most common cause of this is a failed image sensor. Usually the playback mode will let you view pictures taken before the issue happened just fine and you will also be able to view the menu system just fine. When viewing the screen in an image taking mode, however, there is typically discolorations, horizontal or vertical lines, image bluring or distortions, or simply a black screen.

This situation, if caused by the image sensor, has to serviced and cannot be fixed by the user. If you are within your one year warranty and no user damage has been done to the camera, the camera will be fixed at no charge. If beyond the 12 month period however the customer may opt to have the unit repaired at a cost or take advantage of the Canon Loyalty Program and upgrade to refurbished S3 IS at an alternate discounted price.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
