Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The camera starts shaking even when the shutter is closed. What could be causing this

Answers :

How does the camera shake,?
It might be your hands?

You may not be dedscrfibing this clearly enough to get a diagnosis. I am presuming that somehow the display is unsteady, but there would be no display if the lens was closed. Ifr you are lookingb through the viewfinder and experiencing a shake this would not be any mechanical problem within the camera it would be external and an unsteady hand, If you are viewing replays of pics and the display is unstable in this mode then i can accept that therte may be "shake" in the stability of the picture. Steady Shot cameras have a Gyro in them, if this becomes faulty it can cause instability to the handling of the camera. there i have covered the options. If the latter is true and your camera ( no brand or model mentioned) has the shakes then it must be returned to its manufacturer for repair

Olympus D-600L Lense tries to open & shutter won't work. Firstly, Batteries are properly charged. The Zoom works, the SLR viewer is closed. When holding down the button it sounds like the camera wants to activate the shutter. I tried to remove the case but even after removing all the screws I still could not loosen the case. Any help would be appreciated.

I have an Akai digital camera model DC6371. On start up the lens pops out and screen lights up, but then the screen closes down and (often) the lens remains out even when the camera has been turned off. On trying to operate it again today, the green light indicates the camera is on for a few seconds and the screen lights up momentarily, but the lens doesn't pop out and the camera closes down again.

Looks like you have the notorious lens stuck problem. Since you said it pops out occasionally but does not go in, it is probably a faulty motor or some kind of mechanical obstruction. A qualified camera should be able to fix this for you but I recomm ... Akai DC6371 Digital Camera

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

I have a Kodak M1063 that has never been dropped or abused. I have had it for a couple of years and it has worked flawless. A couple of weeks ago it started malfunctioning as it would open the shutter and then close it immediately. I thought that maybe it was time for a new battery and I bought one and charged it. The camera still does the same thing. It powers up...opens the shutter then close Immediately. please advise

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

While at the beach, someone threw a frizbee at my wife and she dropped the camera in the sand. We were careful as we could be picking it up to avoid entrance of sand into the camera. It worked fine until the next day and the lens opened and stuck. I opened the case to remove and sand that entered the camera. While removing the flash it went off and now the camera doesn't even turn on. I assume something touched and blew a fuse. Is this fixable and if so where do I start?

I have a Panasonic Lumix FZ35.. I adore this camera, it is light, takes great photos and easy to learn. However, awhile back I encountered a problem with the setting's dial. It is not lining up correctly and now does not set to certain modes, or it skips one. This is particularly the case with the Scene setting and the close up setting. The camera is still under warrenty since I have not even had it 8 months. I was wondering if this is something that a camera repair place could adjust simply. I

Aloha, My Lumix DMC-TZ3 is having issues. When I turn it on it is extremely dark. It's almost as if the camera is only registering one side of the color spectrum. Even the pictures that are taken come out dark, so I'm guessing it's a lens problem. Not sure how it happened, because the camera was not dropped or treated badly anytime recently. The day before it started going wonky, the pictures and camera were fine. Could this be a lens issue or something internal. Is there a reset button to resto

Unless the protector blades on the front of the lens aren't opening fully, this doesn't sound like a lens problem. It sounds more like a sensor problem. Reset is accomplished by going into the menu and finding "reset"...follow the on-screen instructi ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera

We continue to have problems once a picture is taken we get file errors or the picture is half merged with another picture. Also, the picture looks fine in the camera, but when we download to the computer it is merged with another picture that was not even loaded on the camera at the same time. We thought we might need to be more agressive in pusing down the shutter button, but this problem is really puzzeling us and causing aggravation. Can you help?
