My wife has a nikon d70 with a quantary 28-200 zoom lens. F2.8-F5.6. It takes great picutres during the day. At low light and nightime the longer range pictures will not stay in focus. She set the focus and when she releases the shutter the lens automatically moves back and forth. Only happens at night.
The camera is unable to focus properly in low light at long focal lengths. You might have to throw some light on the subject with a flashlight until the camera locks in the focus or resort to focussing manually. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera
I have a Nikon D70 (with a 18-55mm lens) and have always used it in Auto mode. It suddenly stopped working in auto mode...won't take the picture at all. Did I break the lens??? If I tip the camera back and forth the lens will move (zoom in and out) by itself...don't remember it doing that before??? Fixable or do I need a new lens?
Hi tina549, do any of your other lens auto focus? If so then it may be this lens. If they do not then look on the right side of the lens mount (with camera facing you) there is the AF and M switch. Something to try is clean the electrical contacts on ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

Nikkor lense I have a AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor ED 18-70mm lense. Up to now it has been good for me. Now I have a problem. When I take indoor shots the lense will not focus in it spins like it is trying to focus but thats all it does is spin back and forth. Sometimes it will take (allow) a picture and the picture is very blurry. I have no idea how this happened. I don't know too much about lenses and this is baffling me, especially since I don't have any trouble shooting or focusing outside. Outside i

Dropped camera Camera dropped while lens was out. Lens was knocked crooked. My son attempted to push the lens back to center it and we heard a piece on the right side click or break. Now the lens wobbles, but retracts. However, the lens comes out halfway between wide and telephoto, have to move it back and forth, or shut off and sometimes it comes out to wide. Pictures are still great. Ask Kodak for help and they wanted me to send it to them and then give me a certificate to take 15% off a new c

When trying to take a picture the lense moves back and forth trying to focus. When it finall stops the subject is out of focus. There is a grinding sound as it tries to focus. Some times the picture will be taken -delayed. Most of the tiime no picture can be taken. Help!!
It sounds like you need a new lens. This particular camera does not have an autofocus motor built in, which means it can only use lenses that have a motor already built in. Look for any Nikon lenses that have the AF-S in their name.Amazon ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
When power is turned on the zoom lense moves in and out on its own for a couple of seconds then stops. Camera remains on (battery is charged) The message changes from "access" to "turn the power off and on again." When that is done the same process happens again. Photos can be retrieved that are in the memory to view but the problem is getting to the starting screen in order to take a picture. What's up with that? Hope you can help!
This could be dust or lint or sand that has worked it's way into the lens assembly, and is keeping the lens from initializing. Often, you can take compressed air and blow it into the front lens assembly, to try to free up the small gears there. H ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

Sorry to tell you that this is a common problem. You may be lucky in that the usual case is that the flash gets stuck in the down position and is unusable.

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures. The camera is giving me a "zoom error" message. This problem started when the batteries where running out of charge. The problem is not resolving even when I put in fully charged batteries.

Zoom my camera isnt an olympus FE - 230 digital camera, its a kodak M836, i can look at my pictures okay, but i cant take any, as when i turn it on to take a picture the lens goes out, and then back it and it switches off. it is nothing to do with the battery as i have charged it several times. - my dad thinks that it goes back in because there is some sand inside (as we recently went on a beach holiday) and that the sand is stopping the zoom from coming out all the way, so it goes back in, alth

Sometimes the autofocus doesn't work. It is switched to af. When I turn the camera on it will normally focus but after 1 or a couple of pictures it will not autofocus. If I move the switch to Manual I can take the picture and then if I move the switch back to m/a it will focus and keep focusing and I can take a few few more frames then then the auto cocus stops working again and I have to switch back to M and so on. I never know when it wount work. Thank you.

I have just got back from holiday where I took 325pics. Earlier today I was able to see them on screen but had not yet downloaded as I was going to take to a store to print out tomorrow. Now when I switch the camera on it gives me 2 options - Card Setup either power off or format. I don't want to press yes and delete the pics but if I press no the only other option it takes me back to is to power off. At this time i can't take any photos either.

I purchased this camera months ago and hate it. I guess I dont know how to use it correctly. Any time I try and take pictures it seems like it take forever for the pic to take. By the time it clicks the subject has moved resulting in blurry pic. I have tried moving the dial to different settings and no change. Any suggestions?
You need to learn the "half-press". You press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep). Then, when the moment is right, you finish pressing the rest of the way for an instant picture. ... Olympus EVOLT E-410 Digital Camera
I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?
