Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 800 Digital Camera ?

My nikon coolpix 800 isn't taking pictures. It takes them but... the shutter won't open. so i have a full 128mb cf card that is full of nothing but pictures of the back of the shutter.... i've read the manual ten times and i have not found an answer to my issue. can you explain what is going on, and if its possible to fix easily... and inexpensively.

Answers :

I doubt there is an easy fix or a cheap one, the mechanism that opens the shutter may have broken or come loose, the only thing i can think of would be to shake it a little to see if things click into place.

Memory First of all I found that the instruction manual wasn't very informative... it covered the basics but nothing on memory or if it needed to be charged before the first use. It just says to go ahead and turn it on so I assumed that meant it came charged? My main question is the box says that there is up to 9 hours recording on my jazz 179 camcorder and I was recording on christmas day and it said that the memory was full after not even 5 min.? I dont have a SD card but in the manual it says

Ok, here's the deal...\015\012\015\012The '9 hours' of recording time is a bench mark only... The unit only comes with 64 MB of internal memory, and when you are recording in the highest resolution, (Mpeg4) mode, then it eats up the avai ... Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera

Random reset Mine also shuts off at the most inopportune times ... In researching the web i have found several others with the same problem. Unfortunately I have not found any solutions or explanations. When my camera operates properly it takes wonderful pictures on both manual and auto settings. I only wish I could count on it to remain "On" when I really need it ...

I also have a P880 that has started shutting off on its own. Here's the fix that worked for me (well, not really a fix, but a workaround, and at least it points to the possible cause): as soon as the camera turns on, go into the menu and turn t ... Kodak EasyShare P880 Digital Camera

I just found an Olympus VN-1800 hand held voice recorder in a drawer. I cannot find the owner's manual. Where can I buy one because to download this manual, one would need far greater than 20/20 vision or 7 pairs of glasses. It is minute to read......Help because I don't know how to clear out folder A & C because when I hit erase, it says "full". I don't understand folder S also. I recorded on folder B and am terrified I will erase this important talk. Help!!!!

SD600, the camera time resets everytime i turn it on. i read the manual and found out that there is rechargeable lithium battery built into the camera to save such setting. does any one know what type built in battery for SD600 and where i can buy them? i am hoping to replace it myself without going to the repair shop for $109.

There's a little battery in the camera under where the tripod mount is. Make sure your camera is out of warranty before attempting any repairs. Opening the case will void your warranty. Do this at your own risk. \015\012\015\0121) Remove a ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck

Your boyfriend is probably right, and it makes sense, if you can't change the f-stops. \015\012The following blog on Flickr might help you:\015\012 ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

Canon PowerShot A620 says no memory card when there is a memory card installed. Tried two different cards and both not working. Card is not full or locked. Card door closes all the way.

I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in vain.I found one workaround but it seems to work for very short time. Just open the battery cover,take out all batteries and then insert ,then turn on,it MAY work for 10 sec.Please suggest what may be wrong and what to do.

Mpvr troubleshoot I have had the mpvr for two months and it has worked fine but i noticed after the last time i charged the battery and turned it on, it brought up the title screen and would go to a black screen as if a lens cap would be on or something. anyways after about ten seconds it will automatically turn off. another thing i noticed is it won't turn on auto when you flip the screen open but that you have to manually push the button open.

"check connections" I just got a Casio Ex-Z77 and am trying to upload my photos for the first time to my PC. I've followed the instruction manual and tried all the tips I've found online (making sure my battery is charged, checking USB ports - all the obvious stuff), but nothing works.

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?

It sounds like the lens has been dropped or knocked and is misaligned in the guides.Repair against new lewns is a difficult one as prices vary. I would perhaps consider replacing it with a used one. Before you do borrow a similar lens from some ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have just bought the Kodak M381 camera and when I set the date and time and click ok, the time is set but does not display on the LCD screen at any point, so when I review my pictures there is no way of knowing when I took them. You can date the pictures retrospectively but that takes time and will be incredibly tedious and you soon forget. In the manual it says to select the date time stamp but I am unable to find it in my set up menu and I'm beginning to think this camera does not have this
