I have a Nikon DX SLR digital camera and a fault sign CHA appears

Customer Question

I have a Nikon DX SLR digital camera and a fault sign CHA appears in the little screen on the top RHS which prevents a photo being taken. Any clues how to remedy this?
Thanks.

Hi John. A "CHA" error means there is something wrong with the cameras card reader. This could be an electronic issue but most of the time it is bent or broken pins at the bottom of the reader. This really isn’t a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified technician. You may want to check locally for a camera repair shop in your area, or, if you need assistance finding a shop, please let me know and I'll locate one for you.

Just a quick follow-up to see if I can be of further assistance and ask that you rate my service this far.
