F--- shows up after cleaning. Lense loose?
Sometimes lens mount to camera can get loose but mostly lens has a electrical connection problem that you would be better off just replacing lens with a good used one from eBay.
Why can't I get my flash to pop up
Are the controls set in a position that does not allow flash? For example, in some scene modes, flash is excluded, as it is in S or A modes. Also, if your camera has a flash control, make sure it is not in "Flash off", a lightening bolt with a diagonal line through it.
This is an odd problem if you're using a standard lens. I've been told that it's called photo chromatic aberration and it's a fairly common problem with inexpensive big (600-1200mm) telephoto lenses.
If it's happening with a good quality standard lens this suggests that there may be a problem with the autofocus not being quite set when you take the first shot then being fully adjusted by the time you take the second shot.
I'd suggest contacting Nikon support at www.nikon.com
to see what they suggest. Be sure to provide them with information about what kind of lens you are using and what the light conditions are.
How do i reset d100 to factory specs
The D-90 and D-100 are similar so this may work for you. On my D-90, you go to the menu, then click on the little pencil Icon. The top line will read: Reset Custom settings." Click on this line then click "yes" to reset all custom settings back to default. You can also reset individual settings back to default by clicking on the line for the specific setting you want to reset.
In addition, on the top right side of the camera you will find a "+/-" button and an "AF" button. Both are marked by little green dots. Press these two buttons simultaneously for several seconds and it will reset most of the custom settings back to default.
Will not take picture
If the view finder is dim it is likely the iris of the lens is stuck and cannot acquire correct lighting. It need to be repaired by disassembling the lens.
Image processing delay
This may linked directly to an issue with the memory card or internal storage circuits.When the shutter release is operated, the image projected on the sensor is collected and sent to the internal high speed memory of the camera called the buffer. This buffer is very fast - but not very large in capacity. Depending on your exposure settings (NEF, JPEG, NEF w/ Preview, Large, Med Small, Fine, etc.) you may be able to take anywhere between 6 and 75 exposures in rapid succession - this means 3 or 4 per second. Once the camera's internal buffer is full, it must be sent to the comparatively slow CF card. When this happens, no more shooting can take place.A minute strikes me as being too long for this to take. I would recommend that you remove the CF card and copy the contents to a computer. Format the card by the computer to make sure that it has the capacity indicated on the label. If it is slightly less, it is OK - if it is more than that, it may indicate a problem area on the card that the camera is repeatedly attempting store data upon. If the CF card checks out OK, return it to the camera and format it in the camera. This is a very important step. Whenever you transfer pictures from the card - whether it is with a card reader or via a cable between the computer and the camera - format the card after the transfer in the camera - before taking more photos. CF cards have dropped in price, and you may benefit from buying a new one for use in the camera. Select a faster class card whenever possible. Memory cards do have a finite number of read / write operations and you may be reaching the end of life on yours.I hope this helps and good luck!
