I have a d90 nikon. Got the cha error first. Now the screen is a mess of black and grey lines. Is this camera toast.


Hi, Your camera shouldn't be toast, the cha error can be caused by many things. First thing you'll want to do is remove the lens you currently have on it. Then what you'll want to do is hold down the two buttons that have green dots on top of them (they're located on the top of the camera) for 5 seconds, this restores the camera to factory. After that you'll want to go into the menu and then custom controls and then hit reset. That should fix the error most of the time however it can also be caused by certain memory cards. In that case you'll want to save all photos off of the memory card onto a computer and reformat the memory card. If neither of those work for you let me know and I can try and help you troubleshoot more =)

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.

Took the memory card out of my camera yesterday. when i put it back in it displays CHA on the screen. what happened? i can't use my camera.


The CHA error indicates an issue with the memory card in the camera.

Try another card and see if that works ok.

Also, always format cards in the camera.


In case the error comes back on a new card, you will need to send the camera to Nikon.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this free solution.

Today I removed my Sandisk memory card from my Nikon D300 before going on a photo job to replace it with an empty one but couldn't get the new one to go in-or the one I had just removed. The camera shows...


CHA error message means that the memory card is unusable. You should format the card by inserting it in a card reader or try another card.

Let me know if you need more help,
Sai.

CHA?


I found this answer on the Nikon web site.

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.

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.

Nikon D70, displaying error code 'CHA' when memory card inserted. Unable to format or use memory card. Have tried new memory card, still same problem.


CHA errors indicate a communication issue with the CF card. Your card could be going bad, you could have a broken pin, or any number of other problems.

I'm running into this same problem now. If anyone has a good step-by-step to troubleshoot which of the dozen things this error could be, I'd appreciate it.

For myself, I'm planning to start by trying a new CF card.

'This card cannot be used' error msg


If the correct memory is compact flash, many small fragile pins are in the socket.

If one or more of these pins was bent by the incorrect module,
then the correct memory cannot work again until the pin/pins
have been repaired.

Alternate soluton:
You might try removing all the batteries from the camera and
letting it sit for long enough to clear any temporary memory.

Don't forget any small button cell that might back up temporary
memory.

If the connectors are not damaged, the camera might be reset on a cold start up.

Problem with Nikon D70


The error code "CHA" is telling you that the CF card you are using for storage is not compatible with the camera. You should consider trying a different card, perhaps a slightly older one that is not as fast.

I use a SanDisk Ultra II card, and that works fine for me.
