20 Most Recent Nikon D90 Body Only Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Don't try to fix it yourself. If it is new, it is still under Nikon's one year warranty. Contact Nikon at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

It may be a setting. Push the 'Menu' button. Scroll to 'Custom Menu Settings.' Scroll to 'D Shooting/display.' Scroll down to item 'f1 (light bulb icon) Switch.' Change the setting from 'LCD backlighting' to 'Both.'

This indicates a problem with the memory card.

It may mean the card is corrupted and will have to be replaced. It's also possible that you may be able to fix it by formatting it.

You can format the card either through the camera menu or by simultaneously pressing the little trash can icon button at the top left on the back of the camera and the metering button on the top right next to the off/on switch.

Both are marked with red and show "format" in tiny letters. Press both buttons for 2 seconds. A flashing "FOR" will appear in the display. When it stops flashing, the card is formatted.

If there's a problem with the card, there may be some sort of error indication. If the card can't be formatted, it is corrupt and needs to be replaced.

If you have pictures on the card, they will be lost when you format it.

You might want to try to download any pictures from the card to your computer before you format it, but if the card is corrupt you may not be able to do that.

First, turn the camera off and then remove and reinstall the battery. Turn the camera back on. If the clock and battery icons still appear, try resetting the clock. If this doesn't work, contact Nikon technical support at www.nikon.com and see what they have to say. It may require a repair but determine if the camera is still under warranty. If so, Nikon may repair it at no charge.

Check to make sure that the little sliding part on the side is not set on protect, so that you can't write to the card. AIf the card is OK, then the card holder on the circuit may be damaged. Check it with a strong flashlight for small broken plastic bits from a card that is keeping th e switch closed. If the switch is bent, you can try and straighten it with a small screwdriver blade.

Remove the batter before you try any of this.

No. It's merely telling you how many more pictures you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills.

8016387 nikon d300s could you chek this please fake or not?

Nikon D90 Body... | Answered on Mar 25, 2011


Personally, I never seen or heard of a fake DSLR camera before because it would cost a lot to make and work just as good as the real thing.

There are a difference in where they are manufactured, for example grey market and domestic market.

Grey Market camera gears are usually a little bit more affordable because it is manufactured somewhere else other than in your own country (US) and carry oversea warranty. The problem is the warranty will not be honor from Nikon USA because it is not manufacture from a US manufacturer or distributor.

SO when you shop, make sure that you are buying from a US distributor and not from a Grey market vendor. Some sites like B & H photo has an option for you to choose if warranty to you is not an issue.

I hope this helps.
