My Nikon d3100 only takes black photo's when the lens finder is working but the lcd is showing a black screen but still has icons so what is wrong?


sounds very much like a CCD unit failure. This will require another trip back for repairs and now that it is out of warranty it is going to cost plenty.

Can someone help me on my nikon D3100 freeze problem?


New battery that is fully charged. My Nikon D3100 has had the problem of freezing every ten or so pics since it was a couple of months old. Still does it today after six months of use. I take a few hundred pics with it when shooting but only shoot once or maybe twice a month.

Have to take the battery out, put it back in etc. each time. Sometimes it allows me to power off and then back on but either way it's a pain in the rear and a serious "time waster".

I have had my nikon for almost 2 years. Earlier today it worked at a sporting event and towards the end of the event it will not take a pic. Battery is charged, new sd card (not full). I turned it off,...


Hill, relax.

You're in safe hands. All right, first of all, I need you to try this out, please.

Go to your settings, and reformat your SD card. From your camera, NOT computer.


Try taking the picture now.

Trying to decide between purchasing a Nikon D80 or 3100....any advice?


The D3100 is newer, for what it's worth. It has LiveView and video capabilities.

The D3100 is intended for beginners, the D80 for more experienced users. The D3100 is easier to learn, the D80 is easier to use once you learn it. The D3100 is lighter, the D80 is more rugged.

The other major difference is that the D3100 does not have an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. This means that some lenses (those not designated AF-S by Nikon) will not autofocus on the D3100 while they will on the D80.

The ultimate decision is up to you. Only you can decide which features are most important to you. Also, if you can, try to get your hands on the actual cameras. See which one feels more comfortable to you.

This sounds like mirror lock up, a very common occurrence if the batteries are dead, so try giving them a full charge (i.e. overnight or at least twice as long as it takes for the recharging light to go out). I

If that fails and the camera is brand new, then the first three months of intensive use are usually when any manufacturing faults show up, so take it back for refund or exchange.

Cannot take pictures thru lcd screen on d40x DSLR


The D40x is not capable of Liveview - i.e. looking at the LCD to take a picture. You are mistaken.
If you want Liveview, you need to buy the D3 or D300 cameras. The D40x is an entry-level camera.
