Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

"Negative space" flashing on view finder

I have read through my manual and still can not find the answer, I was hoping you could help me with it. I'm not sure what button might have gotten pushes, but when I try to view the pictures I have taken on the view finder the "negative spaces" seem to flash a grey color? Does this make sense? Have you seen this before or did someone mess up my camera?
Any help you could give would be greatly appriciated.

Try going into your settings menu and selecting the "reset all" option. I have found this fixes many of the oddball errors.

I have f-- flashing in view finder also in display near shutter button


Tht ususally menas that the camera senses no lense attached or a non cpu lens is attahced. Try roraring mode switch to manual and see, what happens. Read your owners manual or contact Nikon to see if there is a camera hardware reset button and give that a try. If all that fails, the camera electronics is bad and should be looked at by a Nikon authorized service center.

How to take a picture using display instead of view finder


I don't believe there is. Nikon call it Live View in other models, but its not mentioned in the D40 user manual.....

here's the full manual, if you'd like it.

I bought a used Nikon coolpix 5700, worked fine for awhile, but now when I turn the camera on and press the release button the flash will not pop up or work, in the view screen the "SB" shows in the view...


You don't state whether this happens all of the time or only when the flash is active.

If only when active, then the user manual for your camera states that this indicates the flash on your camera is charging and that if you remove your finger from the shutter button it should clear (p.168). In practice it should also clear with the flash is in the retracted position and the flash function is turned off. If it's due to an actual fault then it can be caused if the capacitor or the thyristor charging circuitry has failed. If so it's uneconomical to repair.

If this is the case, then the cheapest and quickest fix will be to disable the pop up flash in the menu (user manual p.95, Set Up 2 > Speedlight Options > Pop Up > Off) and to then use an external flash unit. This also has the advantage of giving you a far more powerful and better quality flash unit.

If the error message occurs whether the flash is retracted or not, then there's a fault with a tiny button switch which senses when the flash has popped up. As your camera is about eight years old now this will be completely impractical to repair and you can only hope that the camera will ignore it if you disable the internal flash as indicated above.

I hope that you have found my answer to be of use; please remember to take a moment to rate my answer.

Colored lines and spaces in lcd and view finder


Sony DSC F717s manufactured from 2002 to 2004 had a CCD chip with an epoxy base that gave off a gas vapor if overheated (eg in a hot car in summer). Sony was replacing these faulty CCDs with a new one on a ceramic base, however, this free repair program has been discontinued by Sony.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

The above link will take you to a web page by Imaging Resources explaining the problem they found. It has some photos of an LCD displaying a view from an affected camera. This is no solution for you, rather a diagnosis. There is a YouTube video showing someone replacing one of these faulty CCDs. It's less than 10 minutes, real time.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Elph


there are some settings that can help with this (check out red eye and flash settings). The best solution I have found is to press the button down half way. The view finder will try to frame the picture, and then press the button all the way down. This 1) Eliminates Red Eye 2) Increases picture speed 3) allows for the "perfect" moment because you can leave it at half pressed for as long as you like, and 4) Allows you to take rapid fire pictures if you don't depress all the way.

Hope that helps
