Having problems with your Pentax Optio S4i Digital Camera ?
Shutter locked up while reviewing stored pics
\015 Shutter lock up. Power will only stay on for a few seconds then powers off. Shutter extended will not move. When Menu button depressed as well as the power on button the message ver 1.0 appears on the display for three seconds then powers off. I have opened the case looking for any signs of trash it appears clear.I visited the Optio web site and found a firmware update to prevent shutter lock up. I have attempted to download the update however the camera powers off in three seconds. Any ideas short of the service center?Txlingo\015

I recently tried to take some pictures with my powershot a300 and was only getting black pictures. I have used it for several pictures about 3 months before that and the camera has been stored in a drwer between times. I checked to make sure the shutter was open. The display is black when taking pictures and when I try to review the just taken pics, they are all black too.
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera
I have a Lumix DMC FX3..great butr is stuck in full zoom mode and none of the function buttons work. ie no shutter etc. but review shows one of the pics stored only and in camera mode it shows all in focus but fully zoomed...help!
Hmm, looks like the zoom rocker switch might be stuck. To get to the switch you'll need to partially strip the camera. This is a bit fiddly, but should be ok if you are comfortable with taking things apart. I repair cameras as a hobby and in my opini ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera
FLASHES C:13:01 When I turned the camera on, I looked at monitor to take picture and was flashing C:13:01-wouldn't take a picture. Shut camera off, turned on and got two pictures off. That was it.

Today I get the c:13:01 code on each camera mode and review setting only shows the 2 pics from yesterday, then blue screen, though as I push the review button the on screen picture nu

Nothing works!!!!!!! I have been having problems with my 5D for some time now. The problems started with a piece of black felt on the sensor, which I noticed when reviewing my pics on the PC. I opend up the camera to check the sensor only to find that there was a piece of felt loose on the shutter. I sent the camera off to Camera Tech in South Africa for repairs. They are to my knowledge the only Canon appointed center in SA. The camera was repaired and sent back with a bill, as the camera was o

Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics. Also, the camera has locked up while I was trying to set menu options several times over the last couple of days. I have simply turned it off and then back on again to get it w

I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). I can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

Retrieving files pictures that were recently stored on the micro sd card cannot be viewed anymore. We do not remember deleting the pics manually. Question: Are there other ways of deleting pictures from the cam aside from doing it manually? If the pics were accidentally deleted, how can we retrieve them? Is there a setting on the camera which might lead us not to access stored pics (like a hide picture option, perhaps?) aisha
It may be accidentally without your notice, it could be a hardware issue, or some software problem, or someone press delete all, or format without realize that. The good news is that you are able to get back deleted pictures with 001 picture ... Pentax Optio M10 Digital Camera
Shutter speed I have had my camera for 6 months. Today I used it for soccer pics and put it on sport mode and every pic I took is blurry. We looked on the information of the pics and the shutter speed is really low. My husband started to look and try to manually adjust some things and the speed will not change. States LOW. I also looked at the soccer portraits I took right before the action shots same day...and some of those are a little blurry as well. What could be wrong? Please help!
