The display can only show 3 numbers, so when the memory card can hold over 1000 pictures you will see a "1.0" with a little "K" above and to the right of the 0. Let's say that you have a 2gig memory card and you have your picture quality set to JPEG Normal, you might see 1.0 indicating 1000 available image spots available. If you set to JPEG basic it will say 1.9 meaning 1.9 thousand or 1900 images. With a 2gig card you will see it drop below 1000 if you set your quality to RAW or JPEG fine.

Just found this on the Nikon support website:-

My D5000 does not seem to respond to controls. Can I reset the camera?

In extremely rare instances, unusual characters may appear in the monitor and the camera may stop functioning. In most cases, this phenomenon is caused by a strong external static charge. Turn the camera off, remove and reinsert the battery, taking care to avoid burns, and turn the camera on again, or if you are using an AC adapter (available separately), disconnect and reconnect the adapter and turn the camera on again.
If the problem persists, turn the camera off, open the memory card slot cover, and using a paper clip, gently press the reset button by the memory card slot. ( NOTE: This will also reset the camera clock. Also note that disconnecting the power source or pressing the reset button may result in loss of any data not recorded to the memory card at the time the problem occurred. Data already recorded to the card will not be affected. In the event of continued malfunction, contact your retailer or Nikon-authorized service representative.

What does CHA mean


Nikon says this about CHA:


When a Memory card is inserted into a D-SLR camera, the camera checks the card for compatibility and usability. There are three possible results of the test:

1) Camera detects valid Memory card, displays number of remaining images in top LCD

2) Camera displays "FOR" in top control panel LCD. The camera has detected a valid disk partition map, but was unable to read the first sector of the Memory Card. Formatting the memory Card using the cameras format option, should resolve this condition and allow the Memory card to be used.

3) Camera displays "CHA" in top LCD. The camera has detected an invalid partition type or is not working properly. Reformatting the memory card may allow it to be used. If an approved memory card causes the camera to display the "CHA" indicator contact the memory cards manufacturer for assistance.

(Nikon's list of "approved" memory cards can be found here.)

Please note that the default disk format used in Windows XP is FAT32 and if a card is formatted with this setting on an XP system, a D1 series camera will report "CHA". Reformat the card as "FAT" to use in the D1 series camera.


When the CHA error is shown, typically the camera will freeze and require that the battery be removed from the camera before it can take another picture. After that picture has been taken, the camera freezes up again for many owners.

Some owners have success removing and either re-seating or inserting a new memory card in the camera.

Some owners have success clearing the error by removing the lens and then reinstalling.

The key to these "fixes" is that they don't all work for everyone. You might need to return the camera to Nikon for repair. You can arrange for Nikon service here.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate this reply
. Thank you.

Memory card error


If you get a message on your camera such as "Memory Card Error" AND there are no photos that you want still on the card, the first step is to format the card through the camera menu (Note: if you have an xD card, once you re-format your card any photos cannot be recovered.). Read your camera manual to see how to format your memory card. If this does not help, try another memory card (say the small 16/32mb card that came in the box with the camera). If this card does not display a "memory card error", then the other card is at fault.


If you do have valuable photos on the card, then DO NOTHING (do NOT format the card, do NOT take any more photos). You need to undertake a photo recovery. For options on Photo Recovery, click here. Once you have recovered your photos and archived them, then reformat the memory card through the camera as outlined above.

Keep us updated (remember to rate this answer).

Nikon D 70 issue


If you lost the manual for this camera can be downloaded from Nikon directly <a href="http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/dslr/D70S_en.pdf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here</a>. The error message is discussed in detail on page 200. The CHR error you're seeing has to do with the memory card. It may be a simple as: it has no more free space to record more photos, or the card may not be formatted, or is damaged. Consult the manual for more tips and worst case, try replacing the card with a new one. Format it and try again. Good luck!

The memory card has corrupted the images somehow. The recovery is a 50-50 chance. Try to find a software named rescue disk from Sandisk. And try to recover the files.

Sounds like you're switching the same card between cameras. Rule #1...one card per camera. Format the card in the camera it is to be used in. There is no Rule #2.

Change your screen resolution in the windows display control panel. The ez way to get there is to right click your desktop anywhere and something about the display should appear. If changing the settings does not work, use a memory card and a generic USB card reader to transfer the photos instead.

Nikon - D 80 Camera Body


I think I know what you mean. The control panel light can be programmed in menu. If you want to illuminate the lcd display push the on/off button all the way to the right and hold for as long as you need to. The dial shows 'off'; 'on' and then if you look closely you will see a small bulb symbol.

The light goes off when you activate the shutter functions. You can set this not to happen if you use 'custom settings' via the menu and set 'ilumination' to 'on'. It will drain the battery faster but it's good if you are working without much light.

pg102 of the manual deals with formatting.

Go to 'set up menu' (the tool symbol). select 'format memory card' select yes and then confirm.

Good luck

You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.
Compatible cards
xD-Picture Card (16MB – 1GB)
There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
[BACKUP] function.
g“BACKUP Copying pictures in the internal memory to the card” (P.25)

• If you use a non-Olympus card or a card used for another application, such as for
a computer, the message [CARD ERROR] is displayed. To use this card with this
camera, use the [FORMAT] function to format the card.
