Recently I have been having a problem with my Nikon d50. Every time I take a picture I get a black thick line going across the bottom of it. Dosw anyone know why this is happing or what I may be able to do to get this problem solved. thanks
After a bit of experimenting, I have found a solution that works in my case. The problem was the shutter speed. At 1/200 I got the black line on the bottom of my pictures, but when I tried it at or below 1/100 it was gone. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a settings issue please provide more information such as what is your camera set at; ISO, Shutter speed, F-Stop & how are you using it, manual mode. Aperture priority, shutter priority or Auto? I would need this info to further direct you in trouble shooting your issue.
Hi there: Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.
A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.
When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter. In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it. Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
The imaging board is one of the two boards on the bottom of the camera. however, black images are usually a result of a bad image sensor itself (the 'CCD'), and the cost to replace that is far more than what your camera is now worth (if it is even still available)
All digital pictures include Exif Data which shows when the picture was taken and using what camera.
Most photo edit programs like Picasa etc will show this data very readily.
The times of printing a date onto the photo are gone, though there may be a setting to do it on your camera.
Possible causes : 1. dirt or dust in camera or lens 2. dirt on sensor 3. sensor is cracked If you are using the built-in flash and a telephoto lens, the end of the lens can block some of the light from the flash and that appears as a slightly rounded black "hump" at the bottom of your picture.

one way to do it is to take the picture and then hit the "menu" button go to the "retouch" menu (at the bottom a paint brush and a canvas) select "monochrome" and then black and white and then select you image and click OK
I have a D50 as well but never experienced this problem. One thing to check as you already mentioned are the metal connections between the lens and the camera body. Make sure they're clean and shiny. Another thing to try would be switching between AF and MF modes on the lens itself.
