How do i restart my camera?

Everytime i turn on my camera, the shutter closes a couple of seconds later, and turns off the camera, even though the battery is fully charged.

Some cameras do this when a series of errors occur. If the batteries are fully charged I would recommend checking for the memory card. Newer, larger cameras do not have any on board memory and must have the memory card inserted before it will function. Depending on the camera, most will fully extend the zoom and then retract back to normal. If your camera is not doing this, it could be a ceased part in the motor. Look for an error message on the screen or listen for a series of beeps. Some manufacturers list codes for your model camera on their respective websites.

Can you list brand and model?

My Canon Rebel XTi seems to randomly take shots and more often not. Any idea what could be causing this?


If the camera appears to be working properly in some pictures and not others I'm going to suggest you look at your Shooting Modes. It's very possible that the mode dial has been turned to the TV mode which is Shutter Priority. With the Rebel having a shutter speed of 30 seconds to 1/4000 you may click the shutter to take a pictures and the camera appear not to take the picture. A few seconds later the shutter closes and the mirror drops. This also can happen if you are in the Night Portrait mode. The length of time my be longer if the lens cap is immediately placed on the lens.

Change your mode to "P" program until you become more familiar with the camera functions and settings

Pictures takeh are too bright


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Note that your camera will not be able to take 15 second exposures, as per the above "fix". Instead, place the camera in manual mode, turn off the flash, and take the exposures in a darkened room. This should give you a couple seconds, just enough time to open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are flashing.

L 100 digital camera is not switching on though the battery is fully charged.


Try removing the battery for a couple of seconds then insert it again. Click on the power button, it should turn on and turn it off again to close the lens.

HELP! dropped camera, lens won't go back in, shutter won't close


I have a camsung L830 that had similar problems and and after I would turn it on, it would beep three times and turn off....but I somehow fixed the lens by turning the camera on and then either pushing/pulling on the part the stickes out and hopefully it might activate the mechanism and it'll go in...that's what happened with mine...the shutters still won't close though. But I'm happy I can use my camera now.
