Sounds like a short circuit. Does anything still work on the camera?

    yeah, I can still take pictures, turn the camera on an off and such.

    Well, at this point you have two choices. Continue to use the camera but carefully monitor any strange noises or smells....or, take it in for repair (actually a diagnostic to determine if repairs are necessary). The latter will give you peace of mind.

Camera lens is chipped on the outside edge


If you can get the lens fixed or replaced under warranty, you should do that while you can. Otherwise, a small chip should not impact the quality of pictures you get so long as it's on the edge. I've seen many inexpensive lenses that had many chips around the edge and still took decent pictures.

Can you use the Quantaray 70-300mm on the Nikon d3000 and or can you use Nikon 55-200mm on the d3000


The Nikon lens, absolutely.

Quantaray makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit on the D3000. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, it will work with the D3000.

I have a Nikon d50, had it since 2006, I took a picture, heard a weird noise, and now the viewfinder is dark as if I have a lens cap on (I don't!) I took off the lens and saw inside the body of the...


Inside the camera is a mirror which reflects the scene up to the viewfinder. It flips out of the way when you press the shutter button. When the mirror flips up, the shutter opens and exposes the sensor. When you look inside, if the mirror is stuck in an up position, you will not see anything in the viewfinder. However, the mirror is super delicate....do not touch its surface or try to force it.

The flash on my Nikon d3000 won't pop up, and I'm not given the option to change the setting in the camera- it's set at no flash, with no other options


which option do you choose? AUTO, S, P, A, or M?
you can easily make the flash popped at S, P, A, M option by pressing the button near the lens, indicates with FLASH icon

Not turning on and has strange smell


Powershot A640 Could Not Be Powered On, Burnt Smell

My Powershot A640 died during a picture shot, lens remaining open. I thought it may be due to the dead batteries. But after putting new batteries and pushing the on/off button, the on/off indicator blinked once then shut off by itself. After a while, a strange smell came from camera batteries area, and I could feel warm there too. Immediately I took out all the batteries from camera.

When checking the posts here the other day, I tried one solution and got the lens back to close: first took out the memory card from camera, then put the new batteries in; push the on/off button with no memory card. I found the lens retracted a little before camera shut off by itself. I pushed on/off button three times to get the lens fully close. However, the burnt smell came out again. I immediately took out the batteries.
Did I get a short circuit inside? Is there any ways to fix it?

2 ISSUES: 1) Pencil tip size dot in the middle of the projection. 2) weird smell coming from projector vent.


might be a speck of dirt on your lens, possibly on the inside. I assume youe have wiped the outside of the lens? ;-) (I have to ask) If the dot seems to be following pixels exactly your projector might be broken. The smell might be from some dirt or possible an insect in the projector. Try using compressed air to blow out any dirt and dust. It might just be dirt acumulated over time that is burning to create the smell. t t might be a long shot, but if the bulb is easily removed, yo ou might try to shine a flashlight through the lens to see if there is dirt on the lens inside. If you adjust the image size mechanically, or use lens shift, does the speck move on the picture? If so, it's probably on the lens.
