I have a Polaroid Impulse QPS and it won't turn on anymore. Usually to take photos I open the flash and a little red light comes on next to the button that you press to take a picture. In a couple seconds it turns to green and I can take the picture, but all of a sudden the light stopped going on at all. so when I press the button, nothing happens. I was thinking maybe it's a battery problem, but I can't figure out where to put batteris in the camera! I got it used, so I've never done it be

Problematic Camera I have a EasyShare DX4530 which has suddenly started acting funny. Here's the sequence of events: - power up works fine - lens comes out ok - green light glows steady, ready for a picture - picture takes fine - green light doesn't turn on again - no amount of pressing the shutter button will bring the green ready light back - pressing the SHARE button a couple times (sometimes 2, 3, even 4 times) will move thru the share sequence and then finally exit that function, turning
I just discovered that the real problem is a STICKY SHUTTER BUTTON, staying down after taking a picture. This prevents the green ready light from coming on until I jiggle the shutter button. It has actually started to be hard to press, making a defin ... Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera
My Canon Powershot A630's flash won't work. Basically, you press down the shutter button and the little red light goes off, but no flash, and it won't take the picture unless you turn the flash off.

Cannon EOS500D, taking a picture in creative modes I have to press the shutter button twice to take a picture.(not counting the half pressing of the shutter button. the second pressing of the shutter button can be any length of time to take a picture.

To adjust the focus on the camera you are suppose to press the shutter button halfway down and it will lock your focus in and then press the shutter button again and take the picture. It was working fine and the next time I turned my camera on this option would not work. I try the press the shutter button down halfway the it does nothing. All I can do now it press it all the way to take the picture. I have an Olympus E-420 digital SLR camera.

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?
If your batteries are weak, the flash will not have enough power to flash and will prevent a picture from being taken. ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
Casio Exilim Z850 The red light labelled'operation lamp' in the manual keeps flashing and when it is flashing the photo is not able to be taken or stored. Sometimes i can press 'disp' button, but it is not permenantly helping. From time to time when I switch my Casio Exilim EX-Z850 on there is a blinking red light next to the view finder. When this happens I can't take any pictures. Then the next time I switch it on it has gone and everything is fine again.

I have a Minolta Dimage 7Hi and get a 'card error' message when I turn it on, in the middle of the viewing screen. The camera acts like it takes a picture without the button being pressed, then the red light next to the card goes on and off for about 10 seconds. Then the camera shuts down. It repeats this when I turn the camera back on and doesn't respond to any other settings or button pressings. Can you help?

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Nikon Coolpix L14 digital camera was dropped recently. Since then, when flash mode is set to AUTO, shutter-release button must be pressed several times to take a picture. If flash mode is OFF, shutter-release button takes a picture the first time pressed.
There is some misalignment within the camera that occurred while it fell. The possibility can be the trigger to the flash which was set off , there can be a crack on the electronic board, a possible switch issue of the flash trigger or a ... Digital Cameras
Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.
Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.
Electronic switch under shutter button is defective and you need to replace it under following part number.. (please select part number according to cabinet color of your DSC-P8)1-477-770-11 SWITCH BLOCK, CONTROL (SILVER) 1-477-770- ... Digital Cameras
My ViviCam T328 shutter function will not work properly. There are 2 functions to the shutter button: The pre-focus and the actual shutter function that takes the picture. Every time the pre-focus is pressed, the camera will take the picture immediately without focusing at all. And the other function does nothing at all when pressed.
Does it act this way when you set the camera to other modes? ... Vivitar ViviCam T328 Digital Camera
When i press the shutter button to take a photo the shutter goes up and the power goes down. i have to remove the battery (sometimes wait a few seconds) reinsert it and then the shutter closes. It does not take the picture obviously and when trying to view (pressing the play button) it tells me that it can not create a folder.

I am using Canon 1000D dslr for more than 18months, it was working fine until last Sunday. I went outside and started taking few shots... it was not focusing properly (or should I say not at all!) and pictures are coming blurred. When I press the shutter button half, it should run the motor (in autofocus mode) and focus, but it is not doing anything (i.e. no red dots are coming)... what could be the problem? Thanks for any help.................
The autofocus motor could be be broken, or the lens may not be communicating correctly with the camera. One thing that can help if it's not communicating correctly is to clean the lens contacts.

Shutter speed very slow and has trouble focusing. When I press the the shutter button it takes several seconds before it takes a picture if at all. It seems as though it is having trouble focusing and when it does take a picture it is useally out of focus.
There is a diaphragm between the shutter button and the shutter switch that causes the camera to focus before the shutter is pressed all the way down. It is likely that the diaphragm is punctured and needs to be replaced. There is also a small p ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera
