I got on to the Nikon website about this problem and I was advised that it was caused by the flash being switched off. I hadn't realised that the flash could be turned on or off - though itt was automatic. Anyway I restored all settings to default and the flashing red had disappeared.

Nikon Coolpix p80 blacked out, rounded corners


Have you attached some sort of lens shade to the front of the lens? The vibration might have something to do with the shake reduction system but I can't be sure. It certainly shouldn't vibrate heavily. You might get a better answer if you e-mail the tech guys at the support section of the Nikon website.

MY CAMERA SCREEN IS BLACK TAKES PICTURES STILL BUT DOES NOT SHOW TIL I DOWNLOAD PICTURES


You need to press the second button on the right hand side. There is is playback button on the top then the next button is the display (it has a grey box inside of the outlined box) and then the arrow keys. Hit the second button (or middle button how ever you wanna look at it) until you see your screen. Hope that fixed your problem

Red hand blinks on screen upper right side. how do i deleet this problem. nikon coolpix 7500.


The red hand icon flashing shows that the camera is using a slow shutter speed, and is a warning to be careful to hold the camera steady.

You could put the flash in auto mode and it will fire when the light is low.

THE LCD DISPLAY IS BLANK


I had an older nikon and it gave me that same problem, I was told that it was the internal lenses getting stuck. If that is what your problem is, then take the camera while it is off and slam it against the palm of your hand, I know it sounds pretty weird, and I was nervous to try it, but after a couple of hard hits to the hand, it turned on and stayed on perfectly.

The hand with parenthesis is your image stabilization. It sounds like if your images are turning out black, you may need service.

Try hitting your display button a few times and see if anything shows up on the screen.

Can i make my digital camera to work as webcam


The webcam ability you get by using the round button on top of the camera with all the icons, between the flower icon (macro) and the Printer icon is the webcam icon. Press it and you get the Little red movie icon on the display window, upper left hand corner. If you then press the button where you take pictures the red icon in the display window will start to blink. This is an indication of that your webcam is working and is in motion. How long time your movie is going to be all depends on the memory card.

The webcam ability sucks up a lot of battery power.
Hope that helped!

Upper part of pictures is black


This seems to be a CCD problem or associated circuits. Sony Support Team should know about this - may mean a camera callback or swap from Sony.

Problem with Shutter/Lenz


This sounds like a stuck shutter. There is a delicate assembly inside your lens that will block the light right when you snap the picture allowing the image sensor to record what it saw at that very moment. This shutter is composed of two blades that come from either side of the field of view and overlap to completely block the light. It sounds like what has happened to your camera is that one of those blades has either come off its guide or has become stuck. The shutter assemblies in these cameras seem to be very delicate and sensitive to even minor impact. Due to the anti-shake features it will have to be returned to the manufacturer for service if you want to get it fixed. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
