Flash Problem Rebel XT flash icon shows next to "busy" in the view finder when I press the shutter button. If I attempt to take the photo the flash does not work. If I continue to hold the shutter half way down, then release it I get Err 99. I am using genuine Canon lens' and have tried all three. I also connected my 420EX external flash and it also does not flash. Any suggestions are deeply appreciated. Thanks

I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). 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

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

Nikon Coolpix L14 digital camera was dropped recently. Since then, when flash mode is set to AUTO, shutter-release button must be pressed several times to take a picture. If flash mode is OFF, shutter-release button takes a picture the first time pressed.

So I just got the Fujifilm Finepix XP60 Series, it's working fine and all but whenever I press the playback button it blacks out. Sometimes it works but most times I have to try over and over again for it to work. For example I take a few pics and I press the playback button. First you see the little pink squares then it blacks out. I press the flash button on top for the screen to go back to taking pictures. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. Another example would be when it's off and I p

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!


The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Shutter button on my digital rebel xt stopped working. I can press down far enough (halfway) to get it to focus but then it won't click all the way down and release. For several months before this final calamity, it would frequently happen that when I went to take a photo the button wouldn't engage at all and I'd have to try several times and miss the shot I wanted before I could get the shutter button to engage. Now that it's not working at all, I sent it to Canon for repair and have just rec

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

It is something that seems to be a problem with the Stylus 410s. Olympus will not repair them unless they are under warrenty, I've tried. My best advice, and what I am in the midst of myself (I have 2 of these with the same problem) is to file with ... Olympus Stylus 410 / ? 410 Digital Camera

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?

I've got an A-75 digital (Canon) When pushing down on the shutter button, the orange light is on next to the viewing window. It will not take a photograph and the flash does not work. I looked through the manual and it said something about the flash charge. When I attempt to take a photo the image has green squares throughout the viewing screen as if they are focusing screens. I also tried to reformat the camera with the new memory card. NO Luck. Any suggestions?

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

A Canon A570IS will power on and and everything works with external power (3.5-3.7V, 2A. 3rd party) but is dead with batteries (two fresh alkaline or NIMH AAs). I have used parts (from junk 570s) and have replaced the main board, button board, flexicable that includes on/off switch & shutter, leds, etc.. Again, lens, flash, storage, LCD, etc. work with external power, but not with batteries. I am at a loss. Any suggestions?


Since the external power works, we need to know, first off, if the battery terminals have continuity with the external power supply contacts. That will tell us an important part of this puzzle. The one hard thing about this problem, is that what ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Hi, I'm using A630 for past 3 years, so far its working well but suddenly, I observe that the flash timing is not matching.

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

Left hand buttons don't work. They act like a half-pressed shutter button. IE: they focus and usually pop the flash. The camera takes pics fine, the two button reset and the tiny pinhole reset on the side don't see to fix anything.


You did what I would suggest to do the resets. I realize this is an old question, 1 year ago, but, if you have not found a solution my suggestion is to contact Nikon. The D80 is a fine camera. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
