Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

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?



Answers :

Hi\015\012I need more information. After pushing release button, you will hear motor running sound---like mirror goes up and down and takeup spool running sound. I want to try more. First remove lens and set M mode. Push release button. You will see mirror up/down and motor running sound. If you can see these thing, then you have defective camera. Let me know more detail.\015\012thanks and best regard!

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.

Camera repair The LCD display is white with red lines going through it. Even the viewfinder does the same thing -- white. When I hit the view button, the same thing sometimes. It seems to do worse outside. You can faintly see the pictures I took in the LCD display. Now the LCD display is totally black. What's wrong. The menu display still works. What can I do?

I'm trying to download photos from the comera onto my computer. The USB cable is connected. I changed "communication" on the camera to PC connection (which made the "busy" flashing disappear). But I still can't download. ZoomBrowser cannot detect the camera and EOS Utility won't even pop up anymore. Before changing communications it would pop up but would only offer the option to manage folders, not to download.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster t ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Have the Nikon D90 camera and it does not allow me to take pictures when ever I want. It is in full auto mode and just does not want to take the picture even in bright day light. The F keeps on blinking in full auto mode and even if I switch to manual mode it does not allow me to change settings. It is very frustrating! what is wrong with this D90??


The blinking F-- means that the camera doesn't think a lens is attached. You can try removing the lens and re-attaching it. Or if you have another lens, try that. There are quite a few reports of this issue with the 18-135 kit lens. ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Shutter speed I have had my camera for 6 months. Today I used it for soccer pics and put it on sport mode and every pic I took is blurry. We looked on the information of the pics and the shutter speed is really low. My husband started to look and try to manually adjust some things and the speed will not change. States LOW. I also looked at the soccer portraits I took right before the action shots same day...and some of those are a little blurry as well. What could be wrong? Please help!
