My Nikon D60 keeps freezing up. Sometimes when I go to take the picture it works fine and other times, it won't take the picture but if I hold down the button it will eventually take after a few seconds. I've more than likely switched a setting but I don't know which one and how to set it back to the default settings.

Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and allowing the focus to lock before pressing the rest of the way? ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

Rotated image When I take a picture with the camera level the image appears correctly in the screen but when I review it or try to down load the image is is rotated 90 degrees. I have removed the batteries to no aval then set both menus to factory default settings all to no avail. I cannot find the solution in the book. Help me Please lance

The auto-rotate sensor is probably faulty. Believe it's located near the base of the A95's swivel LCD, and goes bad with time from the repeated opening and closing of the LCD. But it's really not worth the effort to try to fix, as most good free pho ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?

Are you getting a Err message? If so The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Blurry pictures I've had this camera for almost a year and everytime I want good pictures (vacation, birthdays, xmas) I'm disappointed with the quality of my pictures. So many of my pictures turn out blurry. And sometimes they'll look fine when reviewing on the camera, but when downloaded to my computer, the quality is poor. Some people say they keep their's on the auto setting, I find I need to keep mine on the nighttime setting to get decent pictures. Any sugggestions with settings, etc to hel

Not Zooming My camera has stopped zooming in on objects. If fully zoomed in or out, no matter what the object the picture does not appear any closer. Don't think it is the settings and tried putting them back on default, but did not fix it. Any solutions?

The lens assembly on the Camedia and many other cameras has a special motor to facilitate the zooming. It sounds as if your motor is actually working but it's not engaging the gears to drive the zoom in and out. It could be a fractured gear somewhere ... Olympus Camedia C-770 Digital Camera

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

My pictures are very blurry.. We have reset to the default settings but the pictures are still coming out blurry... This was not a problem before as we have had clear pictures. What do you think the problem is and/or how do you fix it? Thank you.

The auto-focus might be bad. Set to manual focus and see if that works. If not, then the focus motor is slipping or the motor itself is bad and cannot focus the lens properly. ... Polaroid i835 Digital Camera

My sd700 is auto-metering light incorrectly and the pictures come out too dark. Sometimes simply re-framing/re-focusing the shot will make it work correctly, but not usually. Is it broken? Have I set something incorrectly? Is there a way to re-set the camera back to all its original default settings?

I have the same problem. Sometimes the camera works fine but sometimes it measures the light not correctly, or something like that. I'm not sure if it's only that it needs a cleaning inside, because when the light measuring fails the camera makes a d ... Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera

The date will not stay set. Every time we turn the camera on it opens with the date screen. We set the date and it then goes into shoot mode but the date is not set. All pictures are stamped with the default start date. Tried a new battery already.

To keep the date on, you have to leave the camera off with a charged battery for 24 hous to charge the inner battery that keeps date on. If this doesn´t solve the problem then is because the inner battery won´t charge anymore, but it wil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera

Pink tinge When I shoot a picture in bright sunlight, the picture always has a pink tinge to it. I have tried putting in manual mode, and adjusting the shutter speed and the f setting but I just can't seem to to get this to stop. I have also tried to adjust the white balance. I am new at doing this and I would like any help you can give. Thank you. All of the pictures have a very distorted color. They all have a pinkish-violet color. They look awful.
