My ViviCam T328 shutter function will not work properly. There are 2 functions to the shutter button: The pre-focus and the actual shutter function that takes the picture. Every time the pre-focus is pressed, the camera will take the picture immediately without focusing at all. And the other function does nothing at all when pressed.


Does it act this way when you set the camera to other modes? ... Vivitar ViviCam T328 Digital Camera

I've owned this camera Nikon F65 for a few years and it was working perfectly, but I haven't used it for the past year or so and now it just stopped working! I put fresh batteries in, lights come on and all functions are displayed ok, but the shutter isn't releasing and it isn't taking any pictures as if all the functions are disabled, no use pressing the shutter as nothing happens. I'd really appreciate your advice on this matter, thanks!

The power turns on but the shutter door will not open or extend, it prompts to turn off the power and turn power back on. I am able to see the photos thru the home button already taken that are stored on the card and do the other functions, but am unable to shoot new pictures because the shutter door remains closed. You can hear it trying to open but it will not.

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.
