    my old D1 stopped taking photos, now it just records a white or black frame.....

    is it beyond repair?

    (would like an opinion before trying to get it fixed)

    Have you tried a different memory card?

    I do too. Memory cards are easily damaged, and can wear out over time.

    I tried a different card....its still taking alternating all white, all black full frame images.....

    I dread taking it to the camera shop.

    I'll post the outcome after I get some grief counseling....

    Does the camera boot normally? Have you tried to flash the bios?
