I do not know the S6800 model specifically however, nikon cameras all generally work in the same way. Somewhere on your camera, probably a button or in the menus, there is an exposure compensation setting. The symbol Nikon uses for the button is a "+/-" enclosed in a circle (often half black on white/white on black printing). Press the button and you will either see a zero, a positive or negative number or a a scale with zero in the center with positive numbers to the right and negative numbers to the left.
If the exposure compensation is not at zero, set it to zero. Your exposures should now be correct. If it is already at zero, set it to a negative number to reduce exposure and darken the picture and to a positive number to increase exposure and lighten the picture. Let me know if this solved your problem.
That is the factory setting. If had seen the image on the LCD before taking the picture, then there was something seriously wrong with the camera. The D3000 works as SLRs have worked for over half a century, providing you with a viewfinder to compose your photos.
Please clarify a few things so someone can help you.
1. Are you saying it's too dark when playing back previously taken photos, when recording new photo's, or just all the time.
2. Can you see the camera menu's ok but not the live view of the subject.. or is everything just too dark?
3. Does the Status Indicator LED on the back light up showing that the camera has adequate battery power?
Here are some suggestions (You can quit when you find one that works).
1. Check that the monitor brightness setting is set to medium at least
in the menu's. Go to SETUP MENU and then MONITOR to check this. It
has 7 brightness levels.
2. Press the display button on the back a few times while the camera is on. This toggles the display setting between various settings such as Off/ On / Info. The display may simply be turned off since that is an option.
3.. Try a 2nd set of new batteries.
4.. If you can read the menu's then select the option to reset the camera to factory defaults. Do NOT select to format or erase your memory card, that is not required and it's not the same thing as a reset. This just sets the main functions back to their original settings.
5. If it works fine for playback but not for recording then check that the main record settings are correct for the type of scene. For example don't use Beach, Snow or Candle mode for regular daylight shots.
6. If the built-in screen has an issue the video output jack should still work since that is a different circuit, So connect the camera to a TV and see if it works then. That also lets you see the menu's to check the settings if the built-in screen has an issue.
7. Check that "AUTO LCD OFF" is not set.
8. If none of these suggestions resolve it then ask a local photographer to take a look at it since there may be more solutions that become evident when you see it in person.
Lastly ... It could have a bad CCD sensor or corrupt firmware but I can't say for sure since there was so little information provided.
The factory can fix any problem or replace the camera and internal programming issues can often be fixed with a firmware upgrade. But don't do that unless you are familiar with it.
hi! i am from chennai, india. from your statement i was able to understand that your camera's brightness has to be adjusted.
for this just reset your camera to original position or factory settings. just refer your instruction manual for this action to be done.
if still you want detailed instructions to be done contact us again.
Please remove the Battery from the Camera then reinsert it after three minutes. Please make sure that the Battery is fully charged. If menu options are accessible then reset the Camera to the original factory settings. Please follow the steps that are mentioned below to reset the Camera to the original factory settings. (i) Turn ON the Camera. (ii) Press the Menu button on the Camera to display the menu options. (iii) Then use the control button on the Camera to the select the Setup option. (iv) Next, select the Setup 1 option then "Initialize".
Performing the above steps will reset the Camera to the original factory settings. If the issue persists even after resetting the Camera to the original factory settings then service will be required.
Have you tried to adjust the monitor brightness? There is a function in the menu for Monitor Brightness that will allow you to make the LCD display lighter or darker. Go to Mode Menu and then down to Setup tab and then to the icon for Monitor Brightness (page 88 of the advanced user manual explains how to set this up).
You are looking at two different monitors with different settings. In most cases you will need to do some editing yourself on your computer because of the difference. Or the brightness can be done in a lab.
