"Nikon D60 help"


US
          

Hi all,

My D60 has a issue. After shooting I replaced my camera in the bag; approx. 30 mins later I went to shoot again, but the menus were not available.

When I turn on the camera I get the last shot on screen. I can't access any of the menus. When I take out the SD card the buttons all work.
Pressing menu and other buttons work as normal, but if the SD card is replaced, nothing works.

I can still take pictures, but only in auto mode.

Thanks

Hi Ron,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Sorry to hear of your problem.
Did you try removing the battery?
Did you try resetting the camera?
See page 167 in the D60 User Manual.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Hi Marty,

Yes, I've done those things. I am currently in the Philippines and I''m wondering if that is the problem..humidity.

It's just a weird problem. I tried again today after having the camera in a air conditioned room all night; same result.

Thanks for you help.

Ronnie

One thing Marty didn't mention, but you probably thought of, is trying a different card.

>I can still take pictures, but only in auto mode.

But, if the camera still works in auto mode, that would suggest it's not the card. If a reset didn't solve the problem, and the problem exists with different cards, I can't think of anything you can do but send the camera in for repair.

Hi Randy,

I tried another SD card, same result. When you say "reset" I'm assuming you mean in the functions? I have reset to factory settings there; same result.

I'm afraid I'll be forced to send for repair.

If anyone has further suggestions please comment.

One thing I was thinking of was replacing the internal battery. Is that possible? If so, how?


Thanks everyone,

Ronnie

I don't have a D60, but I think to do a reset on a D60 you simultaneously press the Magnify button on the back and the button on the top between the shutter and mode dial (both buttons marked with green dots) and hold for more than two seconds. You may want to check the manual to make sure I have this right. That should reset everything in the camera to factory settings.

It's unlikely this would be the cause of your problem. You'd have to take the camera apart to do this anyway, and it's not the kind of repair anybody but a very handy camera owner would want to undertake.

If you've done the two-button reset and that doesn't fix the problem, it sounds like the camera needs to go in for repair.

Randy

The switch to actually reset the D60 is located under the rubber cover that protects the USB port. See page 167 of the camera manual.

Hi Ron,

The clock battery in the D60 is not user replaceable and I doubt it would be the root cause of your problem.
If you reset the camera per the instructions on page 167 in the D60 Users Manual ,
and the problem continues, sending the camera in to Nikon Service or a Nikon Authorized Repair Station would be a logical next step.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
