Having problems with your General Electric E850 Digital Camera ?

Shutter malfunctioning I bought a new camera and within a month the shutter has started to malfunction. It doesn't shut completely when switched off nor does it open completely when switched on. If you touch the shutter manually it opens. Is there a way to fix this problem myself? Since my warranty card is not signed or date of purchase mentioned by the dealer I bought it from!

Answers :

No...return it for repair or replacement.  It may simply have dirt in the lens cover.  Digital cameras do not have shutters.

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 can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi
