My son has had his camera since Christmas and has used it to take pictures at two events. Once was Christmas and the other was a few hours at the Aquarium. The problem is that the button you push to take pictures does not work. You hold it down and nothing happens. I tried taking it back with the receipt they told me to contact the manufacturer. I cannot find a contact number for them. (Vivitar Vivicam 7022)

This is a recently purchased camera that was working beautifully until recently. It just stopped taking pictures; when the shutter release is pressed, nothing happens. The only clue I have to what is happening came when I pressed the Quick View button and got a No Card message. I changed the CF card to one I took from my Canon Rebel XT and that I knew was working fine - again the message No Card when the QV button was pressed. Does that help at all in defining the problem? Any ideas what the pro

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.

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
