D90 wont shoot in auto mode. gives me r21 error. Manual mode works fine

Did you switch the Focus-mode selector to MF? It is the switch with number 8. Perhaps you are used to switching on the lens, but on the body is also a switch. Normaly used for the older AF lenses. ef6bcbcb-fb5e-4e4f-8886-8b72082cffea.png

Get the battery checked in a nikon customer care. See if the camera works with same nikon battery of the some other person. If not, the problem might lie with the camera. Visit the customer care for repairing it.

Purchased the D90 with 18-105 kit lens yesterday.

According to and directly from Nikon:

When you see Err on the control panel, LCD monitor or viewfinder of your digital camera it refers to a camera malfunction. Try the following:
  1. Remove all accessories from the camera.
  2. Install a freshly charged battery into the camera.
  3. If your Nikon camera offers resets such as the two-button reset or a hardware reset please follow those instructions provided in the product manual.
If these steps do not resolve the Err message we recommend having a Nikon Authorized Repair Technician evaluate the Nikon camera. Click here for repair information.

I have a Nikon D90

If it's inbetween the lens elements, there's no way you can get at it. It would have to be taken apart by a service facility recommended by the manufacturer.

Battery Stuck Inside Camera

Carefully drill a small hole (2-3mm diameter) into the visible end of the battery (drill as close to the flat edge as you can and in the middle to avoid the cells). Then swrew in a small screw - this should allow you to pull the battery out.

How to i remove a stuck battery from a canon powershot camera?

With a small screw driver, GENTLY push the battery side to side and back and forth. If there is room try to pinch with two small screwdrivers and pull. Sounds like it might be corroded in place.

Nikon D90 rear curtain sync will shoot flash twice

That is most likely the TTL preflash and should not show up in your final exposure.

Try setting the flash control to manual (e2 under the Bracketing/Flash menu). That should give you only the one flash at the end.

You could simply go to Nikon's software download page and download the programs. You can register those programs you wish to purchase, and burn to a blank CD.

If this is not what you're looking to do, contact Nikon Customer Service and explain what you'd like to do.

I hope this helps - good luck!

I am looking to buy a nikon d90 from a site called


Personally I would not purchase anything from alibaba.com as alot of their traders are scam artists. A Nikon D90 for that price is too good to be true so you are right to be cautious and ask here first before you part with any money.
Below is an extract from a person who had been ripped off by alibaba.com's so called traders. Also read the posters blog.

"I was recently a victim of a scam on Alibaba.com. For those that don't know what Alibaba.com is; it's a business to business network that allows business to connect and trade their goods. Well, there is a certain verification that a company can get which is called a "Trust Pass." This basically states that they are a trusted member."

"So what is the problem? These "Trust Pass" members are ripping people off left and right, and Alibaba.com is doing nothing to stop it. If you are ripped off they take no responsibility whatsoever for it. It is so frustrating and I really don't know what to do, other than get peoples stories out there. Please check this blog to see what I mean: Alibaba.com ripoff blog.

What can we do about it? There have been talk about filing a class action suit. To be honest with you I don't know how to do it. People are contacting me daily about being ripped off by these "Trust Pass" members. Surely, something can be done about this situation. If you have been ripped off there please do leave a message there. I am getting enough people together that surely we can come together and get something done about the situation."

I hope this clears up a few points for you.

Nikon D90 flashed CHR and next time using camera

The CRH error message means that the lock tab on your memory card is in the locked position. The purpose for the lock switch is to allow you to set your SD card so that you cannot accidently erase your valuable pictures. Remove your SD flash memory card from the camera and hold it in your hand with the label toward you and the angled corner to the upper right. Look on the left edge of the card and you will see a very small slider switch. Make sure the switch is in the fully up position then reinsert it in the D90. If the camera is not generating a false error, your camera should work correctly.

I can not put memory card inside the camera, this

Your problem is that you are not using a suitable memory card for the D90. 2Gb SD cards have read/write speeds that are much too slow to work with quality DSLR's. Let me explain. When you take a picture with the D90, the data generated first goes into a small capacity buffer memory. The purpose of the buffer is to act as a conduit to your SD memory card and retain picture data until all of the data is safely written to the SD card. If your SD card can accept data as quickly as the buffer can pass it to the SD card, there is no problem. But, If the SD card is not capable of accepting the data quickly enough, the buffer will start to fill up since data is coming in faster than it is going out. If you take pictures in quick succession with a slow SD card or if you shoot video with a slow SD card, the buffer will overflow; i.e., fill to its capacity and become incapable of accepting more data until its capacity returns as the SD card accepts the data. During that time, the camera will prevent you from taking any more still photographs. You will push the shutter release and nothing will happen. If you are shooting video, the camera will continue to work, but the sound will loose sync with the picture. For your D90 to function properly under all conditions, you must have an SDHC card that is rated at 45Mbs or faster. When I first bought my D90 several years back, 35Mbs was the fastest card made and I had the problems I described to you above. When Sandisk brought out the Sandisk Pro card with a 45Mbs speed my problems melted away. I should also ad that 2Gb is much too low of a capacity for the D90. It will fill up very quickly if you shoot Raw or fine quality jpeg files. You need a minimum of 8Gb.
