Hi, I have just bought the Fuji JX530. When I take a picture I get a split second clicking sound coming from the lens before the flash goes and the picture is taken. The picture is fine and the mechanism moves smoothly when turned on/off and zoomed in/out. Is this just the normal operating sound of the lens or something else ??
When you press the button, the camera performs many functions in a split second such as set the focus, set the aperture and shutter speed, calculate the flash power, etc. It will make sounds and if the pictures are fine, then all is well. ... Digital Cameras
My lense will not retract, and thus will not take pictures. When I try and turn it on, I hear a clicking sound like it wants to close. Is it worth getting fixed, or should I just get a new one.

I have a new D40 and I have had the same problem twice already on two separate occasions. I go to click to take a picture, and it does not take. Nothing happens at all. I try again and nothing happens. I try to refocus, but it does not help. I have to turn it off and on again to get it to work and click to take the picture. Thinking of if I should get the D3000 instead. Any thoughts on that and why this happens?

Olympus DE-510 Zoom When I turn camera on, the screen has a red T at the top, with a box saying Yes, and one saying No. The line at the bottom says Go>OK. If I click OK, I get the same screen again. If I click Yes, I get a Card Error message. I cannot take a photo. I am on a cross country trip, and don't have my manual, but I sure would like to be able to take pictures of the Rockies! I know the camera is old, but I love it. Please help me to get it working again. Thanks, Toni Sinclair

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles. I know it's because of the button already being down halfway but I really need to know how to fix it and get the button back

My Canon Powershot A95 quite taking pictures suddenly on our trip to Turkey. When I attempt to take a picture the storage card records a black screen. The flash goes off and I can hear the click sound of the simulated shutter. I can still see all the previous picture that I took in the viewing mode. Is this repairable or do I need to purshase a new camera?
There is no hard reset, technically removing the batteries does a hard reset. It does seem as though your imaging sensor (CCD) or the image processing circuitry has failed. If your camera is no longer under warranty then it would be in your advanta ... Digital Cameras

I can't take close up pictures. The lens moves in and out, makes a weird clicking sound but will not take the picture. Picture also looks blurry. Don't know if I changed one of the settings by accident.

I've owned my Sony DSC-T100 for a couple of years now. I really have enjoyed the camera but off and on it starts to vibrate, it has a humming sound as well. the pictures comes out fuzzy and blurred. Doesn't do this all the time but seems to get worse over the course of time when I use it more frequently. used to get better after I would take one picture, then it would settle down and do one ok shot, the next one vibrates, next one ok. Right now no vibration. What is going on?

My Kodak EasyShare Z1285 will not take pictures! It will make the "snap" sound, as though it is taking a picture and then the screen goes black and the camera turns itself off. I will be going on a trip soon, and would really like to get it fixed. Any ideas as to what is wrong?

I believe the picture size you're using is not the maximum of M853 which is 8MP, otherwise you can take fewer pictures - like for 4 or 5, depending on the scene complexity.\015\012\015\012Your camera has 16 MB internal memory. The lower M ... Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very b ... Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera
Camera will not "click" to take a picture. I had two old batteries which I charged -- no help. Then I bought a new battery on line -- still no good. I have noticed over past several months camera seems "reluctant" to take a picture -- might have to try a few times to get it to "snap."
There may be dirt or debris that collected under the button causing it not to work properly. Try using an electronics cleaner on the button. This will clean out any dirt and hopefully allow the camera to "snap" pictures better. Here is a link to e ... Digital Cameras
Can't get the pictures on my StealthCam to show up on my computer. I plugged it into my computer (USB), and nothing was there. I pulled it up and clicked properties, then clicked "hidden" and "archived" then "apply" - this seemed to make it worse. Even after I let it take pictures of me, no pictires are showing in the folder. SO?

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.
You probably got some condensation on the lens from going in and outside. You should be able to go to a Wolf Camera or similar store and have it cleaned. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Everything looks like it's working on the screen, lights, etc. But when I push to take the picture, it won't take. It just has a muted clicking sound.
Try a mode other than auto, and turn off the flash. Then try taking a picture. Did it work? If so, then your flash is either burned out, or the flash safety circuit thinks that the camera is open. If the flash is burned out, then professional repair ... Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

Batteries are fully charged. I can turn my camera on and look through my pictures, go through all the menus, etc., but as soon as I hit the button to take a picture, the camera just shuts off. I can immediately turn the camera back on, but it makes a strange clicking sound before it turns on. My lens is stuck out because even if I turn the camera on and turn it right back off manually, the lens does not retract.
