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.

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

Hey there. I have a Fujfilm Finepix A820. Yesterday I noticed that when I turn it on and try to take a picture, as soon as I touch the shutter button to take a shot the camera turns off, but the lens is still out, it does not retract. My friends say this was the end of my camera. But I can do whatever I want with it, set it, watch photos I took before. Is it some kind of error, because of batteries or does it need a professional fix-up? Please help!

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! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

Command dial on a friend's Fuji Finepix S9000 is NOT functioning. Can't control aperture, shutter speed, flash settings, etc. Can it be opened and fixed (he has no warranty, thus no problem with opening it). Is there a special setting or way of turning or pressing buttons that he is doing wrong? It says to press (and hold?) a button then twist the dial, but no change is made as far as I can see. I have tried enless things and have much experience (though I'd be a fool not to ask others). A

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

On the screen on the back of the camera there is an icon that almost looks like a key with the letter C on it. I don't know what this means.

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again. Then the screen is blank, shows no picture until i push the play button, or until I change what picture setting it is on. Once the screen shows picture it will not focus anything. Any help here?

My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn?t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn?t work. When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing. The only thing is that you hear a fairly rapid clicking sound, perhaps like a gear wheel turning or something. I tried various settings, new batteries, a different lens, autofocus, manual focus, ev

Shutter too slow and pics of people blurry. I have the camera on auto setting, push button half way down, focus, then all the way, take the pic.
