I have a Nikon d200 and need to take sports photos in a basketball court The sport is very fast moving. What should I set the camera to. Lately the photos are dark and or blurry
You want the fastest shutter speed you can get and the largest aperture possible.If you're close enough and it's allowed, use the flash. The flash will freeze the action. However, it's likely to give you a dark background instead of a blurry background.If not, use the Aperture Priority mode. Open the lens to its maximum aperture (smallest f/number). This will give you the fastest shutter speed for the existing lighting conditions. The fast shutter speed will freeze the action and the large aperture will blur the background, though the amount of freezing may be limited if the lighting is relatively dark, as in a high school gym.Be aware that if you're shooting indoors you're going up against the laws of physics. The human eye can adapt much better than any camera. A high school gym will appear light enough once you've been inside for a few minutes, but it is much, much darker than a bright day outdoors.

All of the sudden, even
Some times the cameras memory may become confused, so to speak. Or a user may have set something which was not set back, and so causes this to happen.
Most cameras have a way to reset to factory specs. or default as stated in some.
Then, set the adjustments the way you like them.

My camera is receiving no power from charged
it could be a problem with wiring or the terminals inside the camera preventing it from receiving enough power from your batteries.
If your camera takes AA batteries It could be that your re-chargeable batteries need to be replaced, so perhaps pick up a set of high powered lithium (single use) batteries at the store and try them out. If the camera works, you know it is not a fault with the camera.
If this is the case, we then need to determine whether the fault is with your batteries or the charger. You could buy a new set of rechargeable batteries and check that they charge correctly. If they do, it was the old batteries, if they don't, it may be the charger.
If you find that the fault is with your camera, you could try cleaning the terminals inside the battery compartment of your camera with a cotton bud,

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?

Please format memory card with format option that is available in Menu, this will delete all data on card that is not being recognized by camera and gives you full card message/ alarm.
Hope this info will solve your camera problem.

My Nikon D200 just started locking when I
Check your Custom Setting Menu, a1-a10:AUTOFOCUS.
Press Menu, select the Custom Menu Setting (looks like a pencil).
Select "AUTOFOCUS" and move to right.
a1 AF-C Mode Priority. Set to "Focus"
a2 AF-S Mode Priority. Default is "Focus", change this to "Release". This will enable the camera to fire anytime you press the shutter, regardless of if it's in focus or not. Use this setting if your having problems locking up, especially using some different lenses.
Try these settings. They may work for you.

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.

Well the CHR error is quite serious and it is with your camera. I would advice you to go for buying a new camera then getting it repiared.

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.
