One key to cleaning the lens is to not touch it with your fingers. Remove dust or
lint with a blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end
that you pump to produce a stream of air out the other). To remove fingerprints
or other stains that cannot be removed with a blower, wipe the lens with a soft
cloth, using a spiral motion that starts in the center of the lens and works out to
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other stains, clean
the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to apply pressure.
Use a blower to remove dust, dirt or sand then wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth.
After using the camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off any sand or salt with a
dry cloth lightly dampened with fresh water, then dry thoroughly.
The camera may be damaged if foreign matter gets inside the camera body. Nikon
cannot accept liability for damage caused by dirt or sand.
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Avoid contact with liquid crystal
Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury due to broken glass and to
prevent the liquid crystal from the monitor touching the skin or entering the eyes or mouth.
Notes on the Monitor
• The monitor may contain a few pixels that are always lit or that do not light. This is a char-
acteristic common to all TFT LCD monitors, and does not indicate a malfunction. Images
recorded using the product will not be affected.
• When you frame bright subjects, vertical comet-like streaks that whiten toward either end
may appear in the monitor. This phenomenon, known as “smear,” does not appear in the
final photograph and does not indicate a malfunction. Some smear may appear in movies.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see in a bright light.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlit. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker, contact
your Nikon service representative.
