Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Where's the reset button

\015 My camera won't take pictures. According to the product website, manually resetting the camera may help, but I can't find out how to do that and the guides that came with the camera don't tell me where to find it. How can manually reset the camera?\015

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

Left hand buttons don't work. They act like a half-pressed shutter button. IE: they focus and usually pop the flash. The camera takes pics fine, the two button reset and the tiny pinhole reset on the side don't see to fix anything.


You did what I would suggest to do the resets. I realize this is an old question, 1 year ago, but, if you have not found a solution my suggestion is to contact Nikon. The D80 is a fine camera. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

Vtech kidizoom camera will just freeze while you are operating. Somewhere I read, if you hit the reset button, it will then work. This is true, but the camera freezes multiple times an hour. I then have to find a paperclip to insert in the reset button.

Suddenly I can't control the aperture with the sub command dial in the manual mode. I have tried a "hard reset" and the two button reset to factory defaults. In M,A and S modes the shutter and aperture values will disappear and only return after a two button reset.I can adjust the aperture in A mode with the command dial.The shutter speed is adjustable in M mode with the command dial.


In Manual mode only the front dial can be used to set the aperture. That is probably In Aperture mode you can only choose the the Aperture. Shutter speed is automatically chosen. That is why the shutter speed value will disappear.In Shutt ... Nikon D80 Body Only Digital Camera

Wickedwahine Just today, the directional buttons froze up so that the up/down, left/right arrow buttons no longer work to scroll through pictures nor can I use them to navigate menu items. I removed the battery for 1 min as suggested in troubleshooting but it still didn't work. I also tried to press and hold the control and power button (just a guess) trying to trigger a reset. The directional buttons worked very briefly after that but it might just have been a fluke.

Freeze Up I just got my first digital camera, chock full of buttons, dials, wheels and screens. ;-) Anyway after a few hours of playing with it - it locked up...no buttons worked.(even the power button) I had to finally remove the battery from the live camera to reset it. Since then it has happened almost half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Has anyone seen this phenomenon ? Is there cure or is it necessary to send it for warranty repair.(return to store)


Sorry this post is probably way too late for fishi, but in case anyone else needs an answer;\015\012\015\012Yes. Return it to store.

I have a ultra HD flip--have only used it a handful of times--no warranty. It will not turn on!! the screen lights up when I connect it to a usb port on my computer, reading--"connected" however, when I unplug it from the computer and turn on the power, it doesn't turn on. There is no reset button or small pinhole place anywhere on the flip to manually reset the flip. How do I reset it. It doesn't have any batteries What can I do?! I want videos!!


It doesn't have batteries? Are you kidding me? If I am not wrong it uses a pair of AAA batteries. It even has an alternative rechargeable pack that looks like this. It charges via USB. ... Digital Cameras

When the camera is on I can press any button and the camera goes off, then I can press any button and the camera goes on.

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving
