Everything seems to be working but the shutter release button. It does nothing, even depressing the button halfway for metering shows nothing. no indicators in viewfinder info line. I assumed it was a third party Battery problem, as there was a Impact battery being used primarily at the time. However replacing the Battery with a pentax battery didn't change anything. Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.

Remove the lens and fire off a few shots. Re-attach the lens and try again. That sometimes works. ... Pentax K10D Body Only Digital Camera

LENSE i BOUGHT A LENSE optomax 300 mm f5.5, with a sliding hood at the end...I put it on my Pentax ist DL but it seems that it's not working.. DO I have to set up the aperture. the shutter is not functioning everytim I use this lense. Pls. Help Thanks.

Make sure the aperture ring is set to the "A" position. If the lens doesn't have an auto aperture setting then I don't think the lens will work. \015\012\015\012There is a setting called "Using Aperture Ring" that you can setup using the menu and c ... Pentax *ist DL (W/18-55 LENS) Digital Camera

Camera lens movement mechanism seems to be damaged, as when switched on, the camera lens does not extend out completely and the object appears blurred on the screen. Similarly when switched off, the lens does not retract back completely and it needs a manual push to put it in a little more. But even then it does not go in fully. Rest of the functions are working well. The damage is the result of an accidental body weight going on the camera, when it was in on condition.

Message keeps coming up 'Please turn camera off then on again'. Checked battery & memory card ok. Discovered if I point at window (daylight) it will take picture...but not indoors (even though it's bright enough. Is this Shutter or Flash problem? and how can this just happen when I was taking pictures no problem few minutes ago. Camera hasn't had any damage

I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.

Often, after exchanging lenses, the camera simply refuses to take a shot; the shutter will not function, there is a small bleep and the viewfinder display flashes. Sometimes the fault persists, and on other occasions it seems to spontaneously resolve itself. Any ideas?

My Fuji Finepix F30 has a broken shutter button. The problem seems mechanical, because it won't work in any mode. Can it be repaired?

Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All that is needed is the special screw driver ... Fuji FinePix F30 Digital Camera

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

My sony 7.2 mega pixel Cyber-shot, model DSC-S650? I deleted the pics from a memory card, went to take more pictures and the camera would not open the shutter. I put new batteries in thinking that was the problem, but still nothing. No sounds or movement to indicate any operational functions. What can I check next?

Try removing the memory card and reinserting it, then power up the camera again. ... Digital Cameras

It appears that pictures are being taken with the lens cap on - when that's not the case. In other words all camera indications are that the picture is "taken", but it is a black square. I'm thinking a mechanical problem with shutter? The camera seems to "think" it is taking a picture.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very ... Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera

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

Problem fixed Hi folks. Just want to let you know the problem with my camera with no image on screen is fixed. I took it to a repair guy and he had to open the camera and service the shutter. Seemed there was some dust or grit affecting the operation of the shutter. It was cleaned and camera is working fine. Thanks for all the advice. Hope my solution is helpful to you out there.

Hello, the screen on our Canon Tx1 no longer turns on when it is opened. The problem seems to be with the little contact button that is released when the screen is opened, turning it on. This seems to have come loose and no longer functions. We are wondering whether it will be a very expensive problem to rectify? Thankyou for any advice you can provide.

My DSC-T700 seems to have lost its internal software (this may not be the problem, but as a novice, this is best I can describe the status of my camera). The camera only shows an image when the slider is opened. But can't do anything with the camera. The menu system has vanished completely. The buttons as well as the zoom does not work. I was anti virus scanning the camera, then deleted all the files in within its drive, via PC. The problem seemed to start from then. I've tried the basics

Yes, using the PC to delete the files and running a virus scan (totally not necessary) has caused your problem. Since the menu doesn't appear, you can try a manual reset but I doubt it will help at this point. Here's how: remove the card and battery ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 Digital Camera

I have a brand new Nikon D60 to replace my D50 that was stolen. However, I'm having real problems getting my PC to recognise it and cannot get the photographs on to the PC.

My PC simply isn't recognising the camera and says that it cannot install the appropriate drive for some gobbledegook reason. Tried all the troubleshooting solutions in vain. Help!!!!

I have a problem with the Panasonic AJ-D200. The tape will not close. The symptom developed after I loaded a head cleaning cassette. I then loaded a normal tape and now it won't close.
