Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Pentax IST-D with 28-300 SIGMA. Has operated perfectly 3yrs. Camera over exposing. Reset to original done. Battery full simbol. Pushed 2 stops still very overexposed. Changed AE to spot no difference. Tried different iso settings still proportionately out of whack. Only way I can photo is to be completely manual.


Answers :

Hi,

Initially, this would indicate that somehow the firmware of the camera has been messed up and/or no longer functioning as designed. May I suggest a check on your current firmware and try an update should it be warranted. You can find more details and information here. The page also gives the instructions on how to go about it. The latest firmware not only restores everything to default but add new features.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
Hello
\015\012Did you cahnage your battery, some cases that battery is the cause of the error, If you try to fix such problem you will be undergo disassembling the parts, but it is theoritically hard to disassemble since many parts are very sensitive. in that case maybe i can suggest you to call for the service tech specialized in pentax camera. melnavz

I have two years old Sony DSC S 750 Digital Still Cemera. Suddenly it is producing photos with small Horizontal Lines. I have tried to restore the factory settings and tried with different settings. But, it is still giving pictures with horizontal lines. I always keep the battery away from the cemera when it is not in use. I never mis handled and dropped the cemera. Please tell me how to fix the problem.

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image


Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

My Canon IXUS 120IS has developed some problem. All the shots are overexposed. I have tried all different setting but still the shots are coming overexposed. IS it a problem with the settings or hardware issue? Please help.


Check the ISO setting...is it too high for the lighting conditions? Check the "exposure compensation"....it should be at "0". If you want darker pictures, you can set it to a lower number. ... Digital Cameras

My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn?t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn?t work. When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing. The only thing is that you hear a fairly rapid clicking sound, perhaps like a gear wheel turning or something. I tried various settings, new batteries, a different lens, autofocus, manual focus, ev

No picture I have a FinePix S2 Pro that I have had a couple years. Yesterday when I took pictures with it every picture is black when viewed on the LCD screen. The lens cap is off and I have tried several different lenses and memory cards, adjusted the ISO, tried it with and without a flash, but still the same result. I can view previously recorded pictures, so I know its not the LCD screen. Could the CCD have gone bad? Any thoughts by anyone?


My S2 is on its second out of warranty CCD, and Fuji replaced both for free, the first was due to the same dead CCD as many has had, the second was due to the CCD being defective to the point of being off center and producing photos that had a very d ... Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera

I have had a nikon D60 for the last 3 years.I normally use the auto setting and for the first 2 years it took beautiful photos almost every time. in the last year or so when i try to take a photo it often displays iso auto r 09 in the bottom right hand corner and won't take the photo and this doesn't appear to depend on lighting.

Is there a way to "restart" my Casio Exilim EX-Z700? While I was taking a picture it seemed to freeze while it was trying to display the picture I just took - then, with the lens still popped out the screen stayed blank and it turned off, and now it won't turn on. The lens is still stuck in the "out" position. No buttons work. I tried to put it in the cradle to charge, and tried a different battery as well. Nothing works. Camera is dead!


Normally changing the battery solves this.Make sure you replace it with a good quality new battery and make sure it goes in the right way around as when you get in a flap it often ends up in the wrong way! ... Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera

Portrait's I own an Olympus E-500 and I am trying to take portraits. I tried two different settings 1. Auto 2. Portrait neither with good results.

I am asking for your suggestion in manual to improve the quality of my Portraits. Thank you for your assistance. Ron Hafer

Resolution problems I have my Cannon XT set at large under quality but no matter what the quality setting is set at all my pictures once downloaded have a PPI of 72. I have tried everything possible but still get only 72 PPI pics. I am using Cannon software to download the pictures and have also tried Adobe. What can I do to fix the problem?


Sometimes if you open up a photo in Photoshop, or another bitmap program, it'll display your photo at 72dpi. That's OK because your photo is likely to also be very large in size. Reduce it's size while at the same time allowing those pixels to crunch ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

My camera, a nikon d70s, wont turn on and work. ive taken the battery out and out it back in, still wont work. i then tried 2 charge the battery but still wont work. i then tried to re-set it but it still wont work.


If the camera does respond when you hold down the shutter release, then the internal clock battery may have drained. As the manual says on page 17, charge your main battery, put it in the camera, and leave it be for up to three days. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Help! my camera has always been fabulous but tonight when i was trying to take pictures they show on the LCD screen with horizontal lines through them. I tried different locations in different light with different subjects and they all turned out the same. I don't know what to do and I really need the camera for tomorrow. HELP! I'm afraid I may have turned on some setting by accident because I just used it yesterday and it worked fine.
