Having problems with your Pentax Optio E40 Digital Camera ?



Answers :

Geeze! after reading all the little advice i could find.... i came across a picture of my camera - what it looked like brand new. and i realized that all the time i had been confused about the constant advice: "press the green button to get out of green mode". confused because my camera had no "green button"..... i didn't realize until i saw the picture of what my camera looked like new, that infact my camera did have a freakin green button! it had just been worn off over time!! and infact the button that is the "trash/delete" button..... was actually colored GREEN when i first got it!! good lord!! i hope there's someone out there that has had their pentax so long that the color-coded colored buttons have worn off..........  i feel kinda dumb, seeing as how the "green button was right in front of me the WHOLE time!!

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

When I switch the camera on the screen stays blank even though the lens comes out, it eventually goes off (with the lens still out after about 40 seconds). I can get the camera to work if I press the green "view" key and then, after the picture appears, press the red camera icon and it will go into auto shoot mode. Happens every time now. I can't take it in under warranty as it was a present and I don't have the receipt unfortunately.

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 ?
