Re: Playback of photos - help

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR Forum' started by Catz, Aug 17, 2005.

  1. I was wondering if I maybe didn't set the right setting on the camera to have the playback not work properly?

    The problem is after I take a picture and the camera stops reading, I press the view button and sometimes the picture comes up and most of the time it doesn't for preview.

    What do you think the problem may be?

    Also I lost my manual so if you could tell me where I set the setting for preview, I would appreciate it. Also where can I download a copy of the manual on the internet?

    Thanks so much for the help,

    The length of time the monitor stays on is set via Custom Setting c5.

    Not sure what your problem is, but mine is prone to the same thing.
  3. Thank you John...at least I know I am not the only one with this problem...if the custom setting does not cure it then I might have send it back to Nikon or live with it the way it is.

    there are custom settings, in camera that control, playback. i do not remember where they are, possibly in set up, menus. that is where you can define, what you would like to see after a photo is taken. check for these custom settings.

    You should be able to get the PDF of the manual on the Nikon site.
  6. UPDATE...I changed lenses to the 24-120VR and the camera now plays the pictures back to me right after taking the picture.

    I guess it had something to do with the 50mm lens that did not agree with the D2X. Is this possible?
