Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Have faded black corners on images (intermittent issue, doesn't happen with every photo shot). I'm sure it's user error, but I can't figure it out.

Common problem and yes no to user error. You didn't say what lens you were using but I'm going to guess it's an 18mm on the wide end AND maybe you have a UV filter on it to protect the front lens element. What you are experiencing is what is called vignette. I hope my spelling was correct. What causes this is the extreme wide angle view of the lens, actually capable of seeing the edge of the lens barrel, there is another little problem that messes with your brain, you can't see this happening until after the picture is on the computer or you have enlarged it on the camera view screen and then zoomed in on the corner(s). The reason behind this is what you see in the viewfinder is only about 94% of the total image you will get on the view screen (LCD) or see on the computer monitor. So what can you do about this? There are a few things some you won't like. While taking a full wide angle shot remove the protective or polarization filter and shoot a "Naked" lens (correct for contrast in post processing) Stop the lens down to say F8 or F11 which will use more of the center of the lens but still give you the wide angle however you don't get something for nothing. You will most likely trade off shutter speed and need to use a tripod. Make sure if you are using a VR type lens that you shut the "Vibration Reduction" off when the camera is mounted to a tripod or you'll have some more issues. What I do at the 18mm end is shoot it without a filter at F8 or F11 and in post processing crop out the corners by enlarging the photo/print slightly. I call this shooting loose relying on the 6% I don't see in the viewfinder and shoot the scene knowing I'm going to "zoom crop" in Photoshop. Hope this was a help Happy New Year

Every shot is coming out black


Have to checked to see if your exposure compensation settings are set to way underexpose your images? This will override all settings and darken your photos. Does it do it when you have the camera set on auto and/or manual? If not, and the images don't come out in the camera and on a computer then there may be an issue with the auto aperture in the lens. Try a different lens and see if it persists. There could also be a shutter issues but you'd usually get an error message with both these problems.

Picture does not eject


Polaroid photo packs have the camera battery built into them, and by now every single one will either be stone cold dead or with only just about enough power to eject the cover slide and power the shutter. Even if the battery did work, you'd find the photo chemicals have also gone stale, producing odd colour casts, uneven contrast and usually the camera eject rollers fail to squeeze the chemicals right across the photo fully into the far corners. If the photo pack has been stored refrigerated the whole time before use then the chemistry may be good but the battery will definitely be as dead as a dodo as cold kills batteries.

You only have two fixes:-

1. Remove the current photo pack in total darkness and store it in a light-proof bag, and then modify the camera to take an externally switched 6V dc power supply (it only really needs 4.5V, but 6V is fine and easier/cheaper to get batteries/transformers for). Then replace your photo pack, it will wastefully self-eject the top photo as if it was a cover slide. As the camera was never designed to be dismantled this often results in a broken camera, but they are ten a penny at thrift shops and charity stores and easily available for free via FreeCycle/Freegle.

2. Remove and discard the current photo pack and replace it with a new one from The Impossible Project. Note that they are not the same as the original material: there's only 8 shots instead of 10 and the results are less predictable and far more prone to fading, so scan photos after taking them to preserve the images. The material is aimed far more at artistic users who wish to manipulate the images during development.

If you've really been seeing the image before taking the shot, then there was something seriously wrong with your camera which now appears to have fixed itself. The D3000 doesn't have the LiveView feature. The screen is for the menu and reviewing images you've already taken.

3. Remove printer attachments, paper trays and phone.

Figure 1 - Printer paper holder and completed print tray

4. Lift the front cover of the printer and remove the white rubber bar by pulling the blue lever on right towards you.

Figure 2 – Top view of printer showing the white rubber feed bar with purple attachment

5. Remove the screws underneath the front cover (6 screws), back of printer (2 screws), and bottom of printer (1). View the images below to find where to remove the screws.

Figure 3 - Top view of printer showing which screws to remove.

5. Cont…

Figure 5 - Bottom view of printer. Image on left is cover to screw. Gently remove ribbon cable to reveal the gold screw beneath

6. Flip the front cover open and gently lift the top of the printer cover. Keep front cover open.

7. Remove the ink cartridges out of their carriage.

Figure 6 - Displays ink cartridge carriage with ink cartridges removed.
Caution: Electrical hazard. Keep hand and metal pieces clear of board or any other electrical wires or parts.

NOTICE: The ink cartridges are all the way to one end. If the X4270 is plugged in, the cartridge carrier is stuck and doesn’t move. After further investigation a noticeable small black plastic lever is preventing the ink cartridges from moving. Photo below shows lever up and down (cartridges already moved in image below).

Figure 7 - Shows inside of X4270 and the lever that causes error #1200. Image on left displays lever up. Image on right displays lever down.

8. Push lever down clockwise so it is flush with plastic wall. Refer to image on right in Figure 6.

9. Lift the front cover open (if not already open) and plug in the X4270. Cartridges should move to center as if preparing for replacement.

10. Unplug the X4270 and remove power supply.

11. Remove bottom assembly carefully.

Figure 8 - Displays bottom assembly with lever and spring
Note: The cause of this problem is the spring slides out of place over time, probably because of ink shed on one end of its loop and loop attachment.

Figure 9 - Displays loop attachment

12. Place spring in loop attachment and use hot tip of heated tool to melt top of loop attachment to prevent further errors. Melt top of loop attachment similar of that to a mushroom top.

Figure 10 - Displays fix for jammed carriage.

13. Reattach the lever to the bottom assembly and slide back into place inside the X4270.

14. Plug in and check if operational.

15. Reassemble X4270 using steps 3-7.

Three fourths of screen is black


if you already got it fixed first time for the same issue, you might wanna walk back in and check what causes the problem and probably look at what they can do for you since this issue returned (assuming this is not user induced problem) - Alternately, you could pick up any of the new line of cams - just zero in on your requirement and probably pick up a Canon / Nikon!
