I sent my camera in to cannon for warranty. It took about three months to get back with an unclear notice saying they could not fix it. If you need it soon I would not advice sending it to cannon.

My Canon 5D mkI turns on ok, will focus, displays top and back, but it will not take a shot. I have two batteries, both which I have charged to full and tried (display shows full charge). I have also tried two seperate CF cards. I have tried cleaning all contacts. Still it won't take a photo. The shutter will work when I use the "clean sensor" function though. Also, I have reset all settings on the camera. Anyone know why the camera isn't firing off a shot?

Metz 45CL-4 not firing consistently... Hi, Have a problem with a Metz 45CL-4 flashgun. I may have damaged the circuit by rapid charging from an external NiMh pack whilst trying to form the main capacitor. Have done this previously, with this and other Metz 45s and it's always been OK. I normally get a full charge in about 2.5 seconds only now I have a problem firing the flash. Have reverted to testing with 6 good alkaline AA batteries (reading 9.06v on pack) but problem persists. Symptoms: - Loo


Hi Guys!\015\012I have had the same problem on CT-1 s and CT-5s.\015\012In both cases the flash cable (called PC synch cable) was to blame. If flash fires correctly with the test button on the handle, then cleaning the cable contacts with ... Digital Cameras

I was taking test photos around the house with my new camera and the flash won't fire properly (the flash pops up out of the camera but it makes little sparking sounds and flickering on and off). I've tried various modes including auto night etc but it won't stop flickering (just sparking sounds and a flickering flash like a light bulbs does just before it blows).also I have tried taking images using the basic auto mode in a low lit area and the flash pops up but does not fire.

Just received a mint condition Nikon Coolpix S4 swivel-head digital camera off eBay. Installed new AA alkaline (Duracell) batteries and a new 1GB SD card. From the firt time I fired it up this morning, all downloaded still photos from my Nikon Coolpix S4 have evenly spaced, horizontal lines spanning their full width. These lines also appeared on the LCD viewer in view mode. However, the S4 functions perfectly in video mode. Is there a service centre fix up for this? Is this camera salvageable? T

Dropped my pentax k100d. Lense is fine, Camera says card locked, will not delete or fire shutter. Sent for repair, was told circuit board was damaged and quoted £306 for repair. Is it possible to buy a new circuit board and have it fitted as I can not afford the quoted amount on repairs, Also this a great camera.


Your best bet is to try a local camera shop and have them fix it. Cameras are dangerous to disassemble yourself because of extremely high voltage electronics that can kill you if you touch the wrong parts. I had a K100D and it's circuits were also fr ... Pentax K100D Digital Camera

My Minolta 7D anti-shake appears to be broken. When turning on the camera it hums for several seconds then will not fire...the shutter button being inoperable. All of the anti-shake lights in the viewfinder are lit, and do not go away as per norm. I also think this might be a heat issue. Doest anyone have any solutions to this problem besides costly repair?


Its not a heat issue. The Anti-shake goes off as soon as the shutter opens and closes in split second. This is most likely to be a shutter release mechanism related problem. Since the shutter is taking too long to open/close the lights are not going ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 mm lens. Lately, the onboard flash has not been firing even when I try to enforce it by having the flash popped up. It will only fire if I do one of the following: 1) unmount the lens from the camera body and then re-mount it back on, which the flash will fire maybe once or twice and that's it!, or 2) switch on a different lens which definitely works with the flash firing every single time. What needs to be done? I purchased this lens last December (2009). Is


Sounds like a dodgy electrical contact, possibly between the lens mount and the camera body. The lens ought to still be in warranty, but that would depend on what warranty the manufacturer or seller offer in your part of the world (in the UK, the sel ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens
