To adjust the focus on the camera you are suppose to press the shutter button halfway down and it will lock your focus in and then press the shutter button again and take the picture. It was working fine and the next time I turned my camera on this option would not work. I try the press the shutter button down halfway the it does nothing. All I can do now it press it all the way to take the picture. I have an Olympus E-420 digital SLR 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

Not Focussing Hi ! I am Vineet from Indore,(M.P.) India I bought a new Olympus C-170 in 2004. Recently I'd been to Chennai and on the beach we took couple of photos with my digicam. But suddenly it locked and the sliding lens cover (On-Off switch) got locked. I immediatly took off the batteries. Later after few hours away from the sea beach, the buttons started working and camera switched on too. Now the images on the screen are blurred, without focus and the photos too are unclear and blurred.
