Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera
I inherited my D100 from a friend of mine who has upgraded and it has been brilliant. Lately the first shot I take after the camera is turned on gives me a black screen. The shots I take afterwards are fine. I recently reset the CSM menu and i am not sure if this has something to do with it. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry for such a late response, so many questions here. It sounds like a problem with the shutter unit itself. Since Nikon started putting a motors inside the camera to do the advancing and winding, the shutter automatically it set in the charged state, ie ready to shoot, or cocked like a gun.
Since it isn't used for a while, the parts of the shutter tend to form an indentation. It causes the first frame to be blank since the first curtain of the shutter doesn't open before the second curtain has fired.
The fix is possible, but fairly expensive. Nikon will charge a bunch, if they still have parts. I would live with it, remembering that the first picture is blank. It the problem gets worse, it may be time to think of another unit with less mileage or an upgrade.
