Remove the lens and see if it's the lens or the lever that is sticking. My bet it's the lens needing service. If the DOF lever is still sticky then I'd suggest having them both serviced.

Is there a way to check the depth of field on the Nikon N2020?

Other than consulting a depth of field chart or calculator, no, unfortunately.

How do i enhance the depth of field using a NIKON coolpix S8000. I can't get the background to blur

You want to narrow the depth of field. Unfortunately, compact cameras with their small sensors make this difficult. Below is a tip giving pointers to narrow the depth of field as much as possible.

Nikon FA depth of field preview lever sticky

The small lever on the inside of the mirror box is what controls the aperture. If the lever on the outside is sticking, it would only hold the lever on the inside down so you would be stopped down all the time. You can try a small amount of lighter fluid at the base of the outside lever and work it back and forth to see if it would free up.

Why doesn't f2.8 show depth of field?

Yes. But the operative word is "bit." Because of the small sensor size of the P90, you have a short lens. Zoomed all the way out, it's 4.6mm. A 4.6mm lens is going to give you quite a bit of depth-of-field, no matter what aperture you use. Even zoomed in, it's 110.4mm.

Compact cameras simply can't give you narrow depth of field. Not without altering the laws of physics.

What is the solution

You are dealing with "depth of field", or simply put (?), the range from near to far of an image that appears in focus. To increase the depth of focus, the camera must be set to a smaller aperture (higher numbered). Using a wider angle lens helps also. Focusing on the mid-point (near to far range) will also increase the apparent focus range. This is one of the most complicated photographic issues, and much has been written about it. Google "depth of field" for about 4 million explanations.

Check the depth of field preview with the lens on and the camera on. If the aperture does not react, it may be a problem with the lens rather than the camera. Check the camera with another lens if you have one.

Nikon SB600 flash behaving strangely

I have sent my SB-600 to Nikon twice in the past 6 months to resolve this problem. They have fixed it both times, but never told me what the problem was. I've had it back for exactly 1 day now, and it's started back up again already. If I receive a solution (or replacement), I'll let you know!
