Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hello, I recently bought a Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D lens for my Nikon D40. I can't get the Auto Zoom to work. I was wondering what I am doing wrong. is ther any setting I have to put my camera in? Anything I have to do on the lens it self? Help!!! Thank you Higor


Answers :

Wont AF on a D40 as the D40 uses "in lens" focus motors. The 185D is a camera body AF drive lens. You need a DX type lens that has an AF motor in the lens for a entry level D40. Sorry.
This lens, afaik, does not have auto zoom - it has auto focus.

I have a new k20D I have had it less than a week and I can't seem to get the auto focus to work. I can manually focus but when on auto I get the red square for a second and then it goes off it does not move the lens into focus and it does not beep. I am wondering if I have a setting wrong but I reviewed the manual and I don't think I am missing something but maybe I am.


Does your lens have a ring on it with various lens openings marked on it such as 3.5, 22 etc.? If so, it should also have a "A" setting which is where you should have it. Also, I'm assuming your lens is an auto-focus lens. ... Pentax K20D Digital Camera

Hi. I have a problem with my Panasonic DMC LZ1. Has developed a fault. When powered on with charged batteries and memory card inserted, the camera doesnt do anything on any setting except the review (arrow indicator) setting. The review setting only works if you 'power on' on this setting. (You can see photos on the memory card). If you power on -on a different setting and move the dial to review, then review doesnt work either. Neither the display (except for review as above) or lens wor

I have the G9 it's 3 years old. On the weekend for the first time I went to spin the wheel to change my scan setting from flora to mountain and it wouldn't change the setting.

Now I can't use it at all underwater. because I can't get it onto the underwater setting using the wheel. What is wrong can the wheel b

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p


Try your EOS in AV (aprature value) mode. You should be able to adjust your aperature value in 1/3 or 1/2 steps dependind how you have your Custom Functions set in your camera's menu. Possibly the lens you purchased is for an EOS 35mm. If you use a 3 ... Sigma Digital Cameras

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

Hi.Err means that the camera is in fault mode. There is no code, so that the fault is generic. This kind of error is often associated with shutter problems or other loens error. If you have a spare lens, remove battery and test the spare ... Fuji FinePix S1 Pro Digital Camera

Focus Trouble All of the sudden, my camera won't focus. The menu works, & I can view old pictures clearly, but I can't take a picture w/o it being blurry. The lens does extend in & out, & the camera sometimes powers off. (Not always.) My husband swears up & down that he didn't drop, or do, anything to the camera. I didn't either. This camera is only 4 mos. old. What is wrong with my it? Lens problem? Could this be covered under warranty?

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions


You still have a bad lens the internal focus gear is out of alignment. or is offset. a repaired or new lens is required. Sorry :( ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Hi. I have a Nikkon D3000, a Sigma 105mm lens, and a round flash ring. I have the settings as: ISO: 200, Shutter Speed: 1/200, F25 for close teeth photos and F8 for face shots. Now I am a dentist and first time user of this camera got the settings from a dental photography website. The proble is: When I take pictures with the flash ring on they turn up black, without the flash ring on and the camera flash on, the pictures turn out clear buy very dark. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

There is nothing wrong with the camera. You're looking at the highlight view of your pictures. These are the bright areas in your picture that have been overexposed and thus all detail has been "blown-out." If you look at those areas in Photoshop, yo ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I have a Canon zoom lens EF-5 18-55mm for my Canon EOS 450D. I am having trouble with my AF. If I set it on AF it will not focus automatically, but if I manually turn the lens for a close up it will then take the picture. Then and only then will the AF for long distance shot come into operation! After taking that shot it reverts back to not focussing. What can I do, if anything, to rectify this malfunction?

Hi, I have a Ricoh Caplio R5 which appears to be working normally in all areas except that when you switch it on, in both camera and video mode, there is no image on the screen and if you make an exposure, it still makes all the correct noises etc but obviously there is no captured images. The lens etc motorises into the correct position and the lens cover retracts. I have been through and selected the default settings where possible, but I was wondering if there was something that should be

Kodak V1003 A few weeks ago, shortly after I'd taken a pic, the lens refused to retract and the camera switched off. It has never been dropped or had anything spilled on it. Strangely, when I press the button furthest left the camera comes on, allows me to view pictures on the card, set the time etc - everything except take pictures. Again when I try to switch off, the lens does not retract. Does this not suggest a software glitch of some kind?


No, unfortunately that is a problem with the hardware, software would not prevent the lens from retracting.\015\012\015\012If it is within manufacturer's warranty (usually 1 year) take it to any Best Buy they will send it out to the mfg f ... Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera
