Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D50 powers up but none of the functions work. Battery indicator flashes but battery is fully charged. No memory card also flashes though memory card is inserted correctly.

My Nikon D50 powers on but battery indicator flashes even though the battery is fully charged. Also, the memory card indicator is flashing, even though the card is not full and is fully inserted. I can't even open up the menu nor do anything with it.

Hi Have you tried resetting the camera back to factory settings? This should clear up any problems...if it doesn't it may at least let you know what the problem is? Also...do not use an SD card no bigger than 2 gigs, What is thee display showing? Make sure the date and time are correct! Get back to me if you need any more help...Thanks...John,

SOURCE: Memory card flashes full when it's not

There should be a "format card" option in the camera's system menu. do this and it may help the unfortunate equipment realize the situation:) (be sure there are no pics you want to keep as they will be permenantly removed)

SOURCE: battery charge indicator seems faulty.

Solved own problem. Bad conection between pcb and battery contact pins. Reheat each battery pin on the pcb carefully until solder reflow occurs then remove heat. PDA now repaired

SOURCE: Nikon D50 flash not synchronizing

Ok this is a crappy fix but it works for me.

If your flash isn't syncing correctly make sure your on auto flash. when your flash flips up and you get the beep push the piece that holds the flash just a little forward. and walla your flash syncs up.

SOURCE: no power - fully charged battery

How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then, with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

I just got my Nikon D3100 and it wont turn on..why?? i didnt buy a memory card yet..doest it need memory card to turn on??


The battery ships in an uncharged state. Slip the battery into the charger until the it indicates it is fully charged. Install into the camera. The camera should power up without an SD/SDHC/SDXC type memory card installed - and should flash [-E-] in the viewfinder alerting you to the fact that no memory card is inserted.

I took alot of pictures recently..seemed to be working fine and they didn't download to my memory card...are they in my D5o Nikon somewhere..


Sorry, no. The camera is entirely reliant on the memory card to store images.

Either the camera or the memory card is faulty. Try another known good memory card to work out out which item is at fault. If it's the camera then it needs professional repairs, if it's the memory card then buy another.

Never, ever, format your memory card in a computer or external card reader, reformatting should only ever be done in-camera with a fully-charged battery.

Do you mean the camera can't works well with your new Nikon D50 battery? But how about your original battery. Maybe your new battery is not so compatible with your camera so the camera can't recognizes the whole information on the Nikon D50 battery chips.

Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer.

This can be caused by a badly connecting memory card, take it out and ensure its clean and connecting properly, also happens in cold climates, ensure the battery is fully charged. This is a comon problem with the D50
