Over exposure The exposure settings on the camera have suddenly become fixed - I can't change them either through fixing shutter speed, OEV, or any other settings. Even tried a factory reset by selecting 'initialize' from the menu, but the problem persists. High or low exposure settings are visible on the viewfinder (i.e. changing the settings shows the picture getting darker or lighter on the screen), but once the picture is shot, it's fixed at an overexposed state.

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.

I bought a camera from a friend, Olympus e-420. but when i started to use it, i always got dark picture even the flash is already switched on. i'm thinking the built-in flash is delayed, do i have way to make it more accurate? i also noticed when i take pictures it always save's as ORF file. how can i change this settings to a different format? i already tried restoring the default settings but why can't i access the Custom Reset option on the menu bar?

I have been having problems getting sharp pictures. Especially indoors. I have the cool pix 6000 and reset all my settings to the factory settings. My pictures indoors seem almost "filtered"...not sharp at all. I took some pics outside and they are great. Shouldn't the auto setting adjust to take great pics inside and out?? Any help would be appreciated.

Problems with DMC ZS3 taking dark photos. I have owned my panasonic DMC ZS3 for about a year and it took very good pictures. All of a sudden ever picture it takes is very dark--even the lcd darkens when it is attempting to focus. I reset all of the settings to factory defaults but no improvement.

Overexposure When I take any pictures, the images are overexposed. Recently while in the USA, the same problem happened and I took it in to a repair shop. They reset it to the "factory" settings and it had been working fine. Now it is happening again, but as I live out of the country, I can't take it to a repair shop. Is there a way for me to reset it myself.


From the troubleshooting section of the user manual (p. 120) -- The reset button is on the bottom of the camera on the end away from the battery. Use a small screwdriver or ball point pen to push it. Works whether the camera is on or off. ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

I'm not sure what is relevant and what isn't but... Two days ago I tried taking a picture on my timer and all of them came out blurry. I wasn't sure why this was so I started poking around on the camera and decided to reset all factory settings. Then that evening I tried to upload my pictures to my computer as usual. The software (Picasa) locked up. I tried taking the camera out of the cradle and turning it on but it wouldn't turn on. I rebooted my computer and tried turing the camera on


Sometimes a camera software upgrade will help, but it is hard to find software online. I first would look on manufacture's website to see if there is any driver updates you can download to your pc, then do the same with picasa software. Also make sur ... Digital Cameras

Dim Photos My G3 has begun to take very dim photos, all iso speeds are affected plus Auto mode. It can barely focus, even with the assist light on. If it was the light meter (setting too high an aperture?) it would probably be able to focus, right. When I take a picture it always sets f2.0 1/60 sec, even at iso400. Is it the image sensor?


Put the camera in to the full auto mode. If the pictures are still dark, it is possible that the apature inside of the lens is not working. There is a micro-motor, gear assembly, iris leaf assembly, and a servo amp circuit that drives the apature. Th ... Canon PowerShot G3 Digital Camera

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image


Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

My D70 was working normally when I last used it. I left it safely stored at my vacation home for three months, and when I tried to use it today it appeared to take pictures, all functions seemed to be working, but reviewing the pictures I see only a black monitor. It shows a file number, the info shows exposure details but there is no image. I did a re-set to factory spec, put in a fresh battery, tried several memory cards, all with no success.

I have a Fuji FinePix S5100 that used to take great pictures. Now, all pictures are out of focus, including macro, regular and telephoto. I have tried using a tripod and not using a tripod. There is no difference. I have reset the camera to the factory settings and cleaned the lens. Nothing helps.

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.


There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Over exposure My camera was working great until about 2 months ago when I tried taking pictures outside and they were over exposed. I checked my settings and they were normal ( always keep it on automatic); however, I even changed them yet my pictures outside or inside (in bright light) are all over exposed. What could be the cause of this problem? Thanks!
