Having problems with your Pentax Optio W60 Digital Camera ?
When I try to take a picture with my Pentax W60, it will focus but not take the picture no matter how long I hold the button
I have the same issue, no message appears - every now and again after I push & hold the shutter button (sometimes 4-5 times, 5-10 seonds) it will finally take the picture. But, again - once it focuses it doesn't take the picture when the shutter ****on is fully engaged.

Hi, I have a Dimage 7i camera and I'm very new to it. Been taking pictures no problems but all of a sudden no matter how long I hold the shutter button a picture will not take. There is a hand icon in the lower left corner (shake icon? I'm very steady). Also a rectangle icon in bottom right which I didn't notice before. What might be wrong?! thanks
As you already know the shutter button has two parts or clicks to it. the first click will allow the lens to autofocus and automatically select the right exposure, and/or calculate shutter time for the picture. when you see the hand signal, it means ... Digital Cameras
I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time. Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode. I fixed one of the cameras once by pushing buttons after connecting and disconnecting from the computer (and the camera worked okay for several months), but repeate

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn?t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn?t work. When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing. The only thing is that you hear a fairly rapid clicking sound, perhaps like a gear wheel turning or something. I tried various settings, new batteries, a different lens, autofocus, manual focus, ev

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles. I know it's because of the button already being down halfway but I really need to know how to fix it and get the button back

To adjust the focus on the camera you are suppose to press the shutter button halfway down and it will lock your focus in and then press the shutter button again and take the picture. It was working fine and the next time I turned my camera on this option would not work. I try the press the shutter button down halfway the it does nothing. All I can do now it press it all the way to take the picture. I have an Olympus E-420 digital SLR camera.

Camera won't take picture. I hold down the button, it focuses on object, orange light telling me flash is ready is lit and nothing happens. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

My Pentax optio 330GS wont switch on. After pressing the ON button you get a couple of beeps and then nothing happens. The batteries are fully charged.

Shutter speed very slow and has trouble focusing. When I press the the shutter button it takes several seconds before it takes a picture if at all. It seems as though it is having trouble focusing and when it does take a picture it is useally out of focus.
There is a diaphragm between the shutter button and the shutter switch that causes the camera to focus before the shutter is pressed all the way down. It is likely that the diaphragm is punctured and needs to be replaced. There is also a small p ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera
Fujifilm A330 My camera is doing something rather strange; it's always switched on by sliding the front shutter open all the way, and it's ceased turning on when I do that. My dad and I figured out that we can get it to turn on by holding the 'on' button in the back, but it won't get out of the menu/blue 'no image' LCD display for reviewing pictures. In the past, holding the 'on' button was what changed it from picture review mode to picture taking mode, and since everything has swapped around t
