Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Thanks Hey Thanks a bunch. Thats what I wanted to know. I have yet to have it work but Ill keep trying. I assume you wait 7 seconds after pushing the button rather then after the shutter clicks Thanks again


Answers :

I've tried both ways. 7 seconds from the button push and also 7 seconds from hearing the final click indicating the end of the exposure. I *think* I've had it work both ways but it usually does take about 5 or 6 times letting the batteries fall out of the compartment at 7 seconds. Maybe it takes me that long to get the timing exactly right. I don't know but eventually it does open the iris again. NOTE: For some reason going to "Preview" the images you've taken will close the iris again and I still have to do this procedure to get my camera going again but I have NOT been very good about taking several exposures every day. From my understanding, that will lead to a more permanent fix. Good Luck!

Same problem I have the same problem with my 300D. I push the shutter button half way down, nothing happens. I depress it all the way, it focuses, waits another 1/2 second then snaps a photo. I am going insane! I should buy a new camera, but money doesn't grow on trees...

Is there a power saving setting? I think we accidental set it as the camera screen goes black after about 30 seconds. If we push the shutter button, it powers back up, but it used to not go black after 30 seconds. The battery is fully charged.


The "Auto Off" setting in the Setup menu will let you select from 30 seconds, one minute, five minutes, or 30 minutes. See the "Using the SET-UP Menu" section of the manual (beginning on page 120 in my copy), especially the "Conserving Battery Power: ... Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

My camera has a delayed response when I push the shutter button down to snap a picture-it takes 3-4 seconds and then the moment is gone! Another problem I have is the pictures moniter are blurry. Also, the battery life in the camera is extremely short. I charge them on a regular basis.

Hi :) I have Sony f828 and the shutter button not working properly. I mean if push the button straight from the top, the shutter is not go (focus, laser is OK) but if pushing the button from top (by angel) or little from right by angle is working. I need to do this very gentile and must "fill" the button. Is it fixable? What can I do if can do myself? Where to buy parts, what I need. Thanks for any clue. Jan G. from NY


It works from an angle so the buttons internal contact is disfigured. I would purchase a new button or buy a used part camera on Ebay which are fairly inexpensive. That way you can have a donor camera to take apart and have a better feel about taking ... Digital Cameras

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

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

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.

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing!

My DSC-H9 will not display stored pictures or video. When I push the button to switch from picture taking to picture viewing it shuts off. Changed battery, memory stick, did "reboot", pulled battery for 30 seconds. Nothing made any difference. I can plug in to PC and view or pull pictures off. It's like the mode button is also a power button.

EX-S880 Shutdown I have a problem with my camera where it will automatically shut down as soon as I push the shutter button. The on/off button will not turn the camera on, but it will turn it off. I can turn it on by pressing the play or record button. I can also record with it as well. I just cannot take snapshots--it powers down right away. Anyone else have this problem? I've only had the camera for about a week.


First off make sure that the battery when charging is a solid red light and NOT flashing. If it's flashing that means we have a problem with the battery. Make sure you are only using a Toshiba, Panasonic or Sandisc memory card that is n ... Casio Exilim EX-S880 Digital Camera
