I have a Sony A300. The lens is properly attahced

\015 I have a Sony A300. The lens is properly attahced and camera is on, but when I push the button to take a picture I get a message in the viewer ''No lens attached. Shutter Locked'' I have reattached lens several times and no luck. Camera less than 9 months old and working fine to that moment three days ago.\015

Answers :

Do you have another lens to try? The problem can be the contacts on the lens or camera body or an internal problem.
\015\012Try using a different lens or try cleaning the contacts.
\015\012Reset the camera. You will have to contact Sony support or check your manual for the exact procedure for this model. Taking out the batteries won't do this as there is an internal one that saves the settings. You need to reboot the camera much like restarting your computer. Hopefully this will clear any software errors.
\015\012Unfortunately if the simple things don't work you need to talk to Sony about sending it in for repairs.

We have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W1. When we turn the camera on it fails to start properly. The lens moves a little, it beeps 18 times and then displays "Turn the power off and on again". We have tried changing the batteries, but it has made no difference. When we turn it off it moves the lens, but does not bring it fully back. Any tips appreciated.

My Sony DSC-W130 camera when turned off will not turn back on until I remove the battery and reinstert . Also if the battery is not removed it will drain after a period of time. It is like the On/Off switch is not properly turning the device off and as such when you attempt to turn on again the restart function for the software in the camera does not execute properly. I have recently started using soem OEM batteries as well as the supplied SONY batteriers at times. . Maybe this is effecting

I have a Nikon D40X camera with two lenses - one is 18-55 and the other is 55-200. Unfortunately, when I was at a wedding rehearsal, my 55-200 lens dropped off the pew on to the ground. It was not on the camera at the time and it has not worked properly ever since. My camera works properly with the 18-55 lens. Is there anything that can be done to fix it? Essentially, the camera can still focus, in and out, but when I try and push the button down, to take a picture, it just continues to refocus

It is broken - either you wear the cost and replace it, or send it to a lens specialist and have it reset. Without seeing it, it is impossible to ascertain the condition.

I have been use sony cycle Energy Rechargable batteries AA 2000mAh. They are properly charging. But now I'am purchased another sony cycle Energy Reechargable batteries AA 3000mAh. But they are no charging properly Why

It's likely your charger. You probably own a "fast charger" but it's also probably designed for your lower mAh power batteries. The charger does not understand the power difference of your newer high-capacity battery, thus it is automatically stopp ... Digital Cameras

Fuji a345 I have a 2 year old Fuji a345 which periodically has a problem with the lens cover not opening and, of course, the lens not extending into position when the camera is powered on. Generally turning the camera off and on a few times will eventually result in the lens cover opening and allowing the lens to extend into proper position for shooting pictures. Any ideas.

I have a D90 and I just got, used, a 50 mm f/1.4 D lens. The lens motor sounds like it is working, but only moves the lens a small amount. Not enough to properly auto focus. It will manually focus, but the movement is not as free as another 50 mm lens I compared it to. Yes, I could bring it back, but if there is a simple fix, I'd like to do that.

Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment, do not try to take the lens apart yourself. Take the lens in to a reputable camera shop and have their repair department do a CLA (clean-lube-adjust) on the lens. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Lens error. On power up, lens moves forward and backward but does not focus properly, and then camera gives the display 'Lens error'. Appears to be an electronic autofocus problem, rather than lens motor jamming due to grit etc. No unusual noise, anyway, from motors.
