CF light stays on, cards come out unreadable by computer

You may need to have your camera driver and software reinstalled. It seems that the internal writer capabilities are corrupted.

This is evident if each card you use ends up corrupted or unreadable, but the rest of the camera operates normal.

My Nikon D200 digital camera will not focus when I depress the

Hard to pinpoint the exact problem...
What lens do you have attached? Does it have a switch for M/A and M (auto focus/manual focus)? If it does ensure the switch is in the M/A or Auto Focus position.

On the left side of the camera on the face there are 3 positions, C, S, and M. Ensure it is not on "M" for manual.

Do you have your camera setup to only allow the shutter to operate when it is in focus?

Nikon 18-200 mm vr lens not auto focusing on my nikon d200

lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny

Nikon D200 refuses to auto focus with any lens it just doesn't do anything.

Does the camera body has a M/AFswitch? it would be located in front on the left side if that accidently gets changed to M your lens will not AF any more until you change it?? I know it sounds so simple but who knows!! Barry Brown

Error 11 at nikon camera

First, if you can try the lens on another camera body, please do. See if the same thing happens on a different camera body. If it does, it's a problem with the lens. If not, you need to look at the camera. You can verify it's the camera by placing a different lens onto the body and see if you're experiencing the same problem. If it is indeed the body, I would suggest you take a pencil eraser and gently but firmly clean the contacts located on the lens mount. It's my experience (I also shoot with a D200) that often times when a lens isn't autofocusing, it's due to direty contacts either on the lens itself or the camera body. Cleaning them is a good start though and will narrow your issues down to the lens or the camera body. After cleaning, try the lens again to see if it's working correctly. If not, send it to Nikon in New York for repairs.

Sound like a damaged card, can you try another card in the camera?

My D80 did this once and the card would work in other cameras but not the D80 again.

Err, R25 on display

The D200 uses a different way of changing the aperture than on that old lens. Set the switch to 22 and lock it with the little lock just above it. It always has to set like this. Now the D200 will stop complaining.

Nikon D40 dark pictures all of a sudden

Are you using the automatic mode or manual mode? Try checking the dial and see which mode you are using.
If you are shooting on the mode with the crossed-out flash symbol, flash will not be fired, and if there is not enough light, the outcome will be very dark

Why did my auto focus stop; now r11 appears in LCD

This might be obvious, but is the AF / M switch still on AF?

Nikon d200 with 70-300 mm lense shutter exposure problems

Start out by putting the camera on the GREEN AUTO button on top of the camera. It sounds like you moved into a manual mode and I don't think you're ready for thet yet. Let me know if this fixes the initial problem. We can go from there.

My Nikon d40 is all of a sudden taking dark pictures

Silvanus is correct - I have a D200 and often by accident adjust the exposure bias dial when taking the camera out of my backpack resulting in dark shots. I bet this is your problem.

Hi Karen,

I would check your white balance. I would also highly recommend some good reading. The author Ken Rockman really has this camera "dialed in". I know he addresses that problem in there. You can find it here. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d200/users-guide/d200-users-guide.pdf

Have fun with your camera!
