I have a Nikon D60 and my autofocus has stopped

I have a Nikon D60 and my autofocus has stopped working. It is not because of the lense because i have tried other lenses and the auto focus won't work with them either so it must be an issue with the body.

You should check custom menu setting 2, and make sure it's set to one of the auto modes. Make sure the lenses you are using are AF-S and not regular AF lenses. The D60 has no autofocus motor, so autofocus only works with AF-S lenses.

I always suggest folks take a look at Ken Rockwell's website also, here's a link to a specific page on autofocus on the D60.

Post a comment here if none of this works and I'll see what else we can do.

check your sd card, there's a tiny bar on the side that you can "slide" to unlock...

brand new D60: This battery cannot be used.

Hello. I've just opened my brand new D60 and having charged the battery the camera posts the following message: ''This battery cannot be used. Choose battery designated for use in this camera.'' We own another D60 in the family and the new battery works in the old camera but the old battery doesn't work in the new camera. This suggests to me that the battery isn't the problem afterall. Is there something else we could try.

yep ...look in the menu ...of the camera ..and select the type of battery u are using ..there are 2 kinds of batteries ...one of them are alkaline ...and the other I'm not sure ..probably nickel or lithium ..or something like that ...anyway there are choices there ..and you just have to try 'am one by one ...
it will also accept only high quality non chargeable ones ...so ..even if they work in other device ..in this kinda cameras it will see 'em as empty if they arent great in quality and amperage ...

Sd card won't click into place on my Nikon d60

My brand new Nikon D60 camera refuses to hold onto an SD card that I insert. It mwas working fine this morning, I removed the card to transfer pictures to my laptop and when I tried to re insert the card it refused to click into place and just pops out again. If I hold it in place with my finger the camera will read it but as soon as I move my finger it pops back out.

Check your SD card, there may be a piece of it missing. Did the same to my camera and looking into the card holder, there was a piece of SD card lying at th bottom! (I used a needle to dislodge it!)

Usually, when your battery has been in the charger long enough for it to be fully charged, the indicator light either changes color, or turns off. This indicates that the charge is complete.
Does your light do either, change color or turn off?
If neither of these works right, check your user manual, usually in the back, which will tell you what the indicator lights mean.
If your camera and battery are doing what they are supposed to be doing, then you may have bought a faulty camera, or the battery which came with it was faulty.
Be certain to read the manual very carefully, to be certain that you are following the instructions properly. If you have done everything right, then return the camera and or battery to the place from which you purchased the camera, and have them check it out to ensure that all is proper.

memory card is locked. slide

memory card is locked. slide card to write position?

Posted by on

Answer

Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

I have the Nikon D60 - Ive taken sport/action pictures

Ive taken action/sport pictures outside with great success using the sport setting and continuous shutter mode. When i used the same setting inside a gym my action shots were blurry. What settings should i use for inside sport shots.

Posted by on

The main difference between the two shooting conditions is the amount of light you have to work with. For the indoor action shots, set the ISO setting to the highest available through the menu (1600 ISO) to maximize the ability of the camera to work with the diminished light. The other (but more expensive) way to achieve better indoor shots is with the use of a "faster" lens, ie one with a lower maximum f stop number (f2.8 is faster than f3.5, for instance). Also ensure you are shooting with your lens at its widest f stop setting (lowest number).

dust stuck under glass on the lcd screen of my d60

i bought my d60 about a month ago and i have noticed that some dust has been entering the lcd screen under the glass. I think it may get in through the delete button, but I can't be sure. I've searched everywhere for a solution to this problem, but I have yet to find one. The dust stuck on the screen does not affect the photos, but it is very annoying knowing that i bought this camera only a month ago and dust is getting into it. My friend, who bought her d60 two months ago has not yet experienced this problem. Please help me find a way to get rid of the dust entirely, and/or prevent dust from entering in the future.

If you purchased your D60 new, you could sent it in to Nikon for cleaning but personally, I'd wait a while if it's not affecting the camera's functions. If you need warranty work within the first year, you can send the camera in for that work, and they'll clean under the LCD while servicing the camera.
