    I am experiencing the same problem. I have the Nikon D50 with a 18/55 mm lense. I notice the bottom half of all my pictures turn black when I set the camera to the "Auto" setting. I notice this problem is noticeable when I use the lense to zoom in. It is less noticeable when I zoom out.

    When on Landscape, it is no problem. If anyone has the expertise to explain the problem and bring forth a solution, please let me know. I am extremely good with computers, but I need more knowledge to fix this camera if it is a problem.

    We have the same problem and took it for repair but they had no idea what it was and the black line is getting bigger and bigger like it is overtaking the picture. My daughter needs this for her school and I can't afford a new one. If anyone knows how to repair this or where to take it let me know. Locobros@aol.com Thanks Marianne

    I can report the exact same problem with a D80. Interestingly, I only get it when I'm in mode "M", it works fine in the automatic modes.

    if it shows up on the LCD only, its likely a faulty screen



    if it shows up on pictures its likely a CCD or associated circuitry problem, mirror or shutter problem

    can you post an example

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.

Nikon d50 takes black picture w/ lens cap off


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.

Blue line threw d50 pics


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.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Nikon D50 Just Quit Taking Pictures!


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)

I use my Nikon D50 for work and I am now required to have a date on all my pictures. Does the Nikon D50 have a facility to do this? If so how is it done?


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.

Black at the bottom of the pictures


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.

Nikon D50 Lens won't work


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.
