I've no specific troubleshooting experience with a Nikon, but I did write a general serial port troubleshooting FAQ. It can be found at www.imaging-resource.comI'm guessing that the best course of action, if your Dell keeps crashing, is to boot up in safe mode and try to determine just what is killing it and uninstall it. Better yet, call Dell and get them to help you through it. No doubt something in Windows is out of kilter... What do you get for an error message? How far does it get in booting? As for the other problem, that's a preferences issue. If you use Window's Explorer(the file manager) to open a directory that has the type of files in it you want to open and then hold down the shift key and right-click the mouse on the file you'll get a menu with an "open with" option.
That'll set up Windows to use the new program to open that type of file when clicked by default...
I have a Coolpix 950 Digital Camera.
I am making a product catalog and I have decided to use the Coolpix 950 to take the pictures.
In order to obtain pictures with a white background I am using the White Preset option.
As some products of the catalog are in blisters, I can't use the built-in flash, because if I use it I will obtain unwanted brightness.
Then I decided to use 3 quartz continuous lights to lighten the different objects.
I selected a white paper for the background. Next I used de White Preset option, and then I took a picture. As a result I obtained a fine image but the background was gray. I tried to use different backgrounds, like a white plastic, a white stuff but always the background was gray. What do you recommend to obtain a white background ? Am I doing something wrong ? Any suggestion will be appreciated, thanks in advance,.
I have trouble seeing the LCD screen in any outside moderate to bright light. Anyone sollved this problem?..
I have a problem with my Cool pix 950 power on/off switch. The camera does not switch on. It was an intermitted problem and now it stays off. Anyone with similar problem. Anyone with remedy or what could cause such a problem.
I have had the same problems with my Nikon 950. That is why I began looking on this forum, to see if others have had the same problem. The problem manifests itself as if the batteries are dead, the camera turns off, and the LCD shuts down. I then slightly turn the switch so it's just off center of the mark (whether it's PLAY, M REC, or A REC). It comes back on but the problem is getting worse. It's becoming increasingly annoying while having a number of family members wait while my awesome digital camera needs finessing. So, Nikon hasn't offered any support on this? Erin..
With the full white background, the automatic exposure is fooled. You can try to treat it like a snow exposure, give it a stop or two more exposure. The other possibility is to measure off the subject item, then lock the exposure before framing with the background...
