Hello,
I am brand new, just bought a used D60 that does not read the SD card. It takes pictures, stores them on the card, but does not show them on the camera's monitor, nor can you view any pics on the card from the camera. I can remove the card and view the pics on a computer. My local camera shop told me to send it to Nikon for repair. Just wondering the cause, (shop said probably main board) and cost for repair. Anyone ever have this problem and could it be a simple fix? Thanks, Kim

Check your camera manual and be sure the memory card is on nikons approved list of cards and do an in camera format. If possible try another known good (approved) card thats been formatted in your camera.
You can also check your card in another camera if one's available to see if the problem persists elsewhere.That will help narrow down the problem before sending it in for repair. As far as repair costs a phone call to nikon would provide a better estimate than most here can.
Also per several posts here in the past, nikon seems to not want to address memory support issues unless the card is on the afforementioned approved list, for what its worth.

Hi Kim,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Sorry to hear of your problem.
Charlie hit the nail on the head with his answer.
If you purchased the camera from a store, most include a 30 to 90 day warranty. If you purchased it from an individual it might be less expensive to have the camera repaired at a Nikon Authorized Repair Station . Here is a link to Nikon Service
The cause could be anything from a loose connection to a bad circuit on the main board.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks All,
The man at the camera shop installed a known good card and it would not read it either. I'll call Nikon today for an estimate. I'll check a authorized repair shop also. Thanks, Kim
