Having problems with your Nikon D3000 Digital Camera ?

When I change my focus from manual to automatic the camera doesn't take pictures. It will attempt to focus but then it will focus and it will be blurry and it won't take the picture, then it repeats. But the manual setting works fine :/

Answers :

Auto mode is the point-and-shoot mode. It is not the camera problem. It is a common problem amongst nikkor kit lenses. Get your lens checked to the dealer, or any Nikon customer care. If its under warranty, it'll be replaced.

My Sony Alpha 200 digital camera takes lovely pictures, but as I am a beginner and don't really know much about apertures and shutter speeds and how complex they are, I'm having great difficulty in getting it to focus properly in the manual setting. All other settings are fine, but the image in my viewfinder is very blurry when I look through before taking the shot. I have altered the diopter for my eyes as I wear glasses, so that isn't the problem. Is there something I'm either doing wrong, or

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.
