I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time. Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode. I fixed one of the cameras once by pushing buttons after connecting and disconnecting from the computer (and the camera worked okay for several months), but repeate

Whenever I try to take a picture using "auto focus" option with my Nikon D40, (using the standard lens that came w/the camera), it makes a clicking sound and will not auto focus. But if I use it in manual mode it does not click. What could be the problem?

This camera focuses the lens by sending an electronic signal to it. If you hear a clicking sound, the lens is receiving the signal, but not responding. I suggest you take the camera & lens to a local photo store & ask if they could let you mount anot ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles. I know it's because of the button already being down halfway but I really need to know how to fix it and get the button back

Thanks for posting this article as I had no idea of the cause and was suspecting a firmware/software fault.\015\012\015\012I had the same problem a few days ago. As my camera was out of warranty and the advice from a salesperson in a well known chain ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

When I use Video mode, the audio has a clicking sound that is audible in the video file. I believe it is the sound of the auto focus. The camera did not always make this sound. I have tried to have it repaired by Sony. they said the camera is supposed to be that ay. I know that is not the case since I have sample that I made without the audio glitch before the audio glistch started. Now it always happens. Is there any solution? Can anyone repair this?

The solution here is repair the autofocus sensor inside as that is a confirm on your findings that clicking in the sound is the autofocus making audible noises in the micro phone. What you need to do as I hate to say it is bring it to a local camera ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera

Anti-shake problem My Konica Minolta 7D stopped taking pictures. It will still auto-focus, but nothing happens when you press the shutter button all the way down. The problem I experience is: 1.

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!!

If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain
