Question about Nikon Coolpix 995 Digital Camera
Check the MODE. Dark images can be recorded when camera is in MANUAL and there is not enough light. Without changing anything. Move to BRIGHTER location and take another photo. if the photo is brighter you are in a manual mode.

I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.

And your question was?
A new CCD for £128 - that is a total bargain. If you think you can buy a camera half as good as the D40 for RM750 you are deluded... although I agree that the CCD shouldn't have gone in such a short time - I would guess that Nikon UK would have repaired it on good faith - as long as the camera was obviously in otherwise good condition.

The only reason the camera will be taking dark photos is when it is under exposing the image taken. This can be due to the exposure compensation set to under expose the metered exposure. Make sure the expsosure compensation is set to '0' or increase it to compensate for the dark photos.
Also inaccurately metering a scene (such as a high contrast scene) can easily fool the meter into under exposing, especially outdoors.

What you see through the viewfinder is not exactly what you get in your picture. It is possible that your settings are just off in the camera. To make sure that this is the problem, set your settings to Auto and try again.
The red light before the picture is taken is a setting you can turn on to indicate that you have focused correctly. You can turn this off in the menu if this bothers you.
Lastly, I do not think your camera is broken. You just need to read your manual to make sure your settings are correct when you take a picture. Hope this helps.
