I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). I can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

Have an olympus trip 600 new out of the box. After loading film the red lite worked and I manually advanced film to # 1, pushed the shutter button and flash went off but film did not advance. Now only the rewind works. Considering the low cost of the camera is it worth having it repaired?

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power. Only way to get mirror etc back to normal is to remove the battery and refit. When camera is turned b

Hello, When I just bought this camera several years ago, I entered the time and date settings and after I've done this it never asked for time/date settings again. But now every time I turn on the power button, I have to set the time an date and press "SET" for OK. I read somewhere on the internet that others have encountered this problem as well. Can this be solved??? Thanks in advance, **** Muilwijk

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right & shows the lights on inside (so the battery is OK). I changed the battery just in case, but that didn't solve the problem. I'm wondering if the film somehow came undone inside.


The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I have an older (not digital) Canon EOS Rebel 2000 camera. I haven't used it for a couple of years and now when I went to use it I loaded the film. No problem. But after a couple of pictures it rewound all by itself. I did not press the rewind button. I want to use the entire roll of film, not just a couple of exposures. Does anybody know what went wrong? How can I fix this? Thank you. [email protected]

I snap a shot on my Pentax zx-7 and the flash will go off but the film doesn't advance, the number on the roll indicator stays that same, and there are no negative being transferred onto the film itself. What's wrong? Even when I change setting to "auto pict" the same thing happens?

I was taking pictures and was switching between different shooting modes; on the manual mode when i was changing exposure settings, suddenly a msg came on the centre of the screen saying 'Access...' and then is just not going.

My camera fell on my floor when I was trying to film a video. Now it is stuck with the lens out, and when I try to turn it on it makes a weird noise, stops, makes it again, makes a new 'bloop' powering off noise, and that's it. I can click the little play button in the square to view my pictures and it will make noise and turn on and I can go through my settings but it will not let me switch to actual camera/video mode!
