There are many reasons but to simplify it could be:

-camera processor is busy
-click button is damaged
-corrupted firmware (sony only can fix this)

best recommendation get a quote from sony if its too high ($300) then buy a new camera (cannon , nikion of fuji they all have quite better quality than sony), if its around 100 go for it.

Why does my Panasonic DMCFZ28 take pictures when I push the zoom lever?


Hi,
I suspect the snap key is shot circuited, use contact cleaner spray in the click button often press it to get ride of possible carbon shot circuit between the switch. in some cases the processor will malfunction, and if moisture or water particles gone inside, you must open the cam and clean the motherboard thoroughly with PCB cleaning agent.

I push the button but it wont take a picture


Did you try it like it is said in the manual? press the button half till the camera is focused and then press the button completely down?
Don't expect the camera to shoot with the same speed as a camera with film did. Give it some time to focus and everything will be fine (I hope)
If not let me know.

Remove your batteries and look inside the battery compartment. Notice that there should be three small phillips screws at the bottom of the compartment. Tighten up all of these screws.

Zoom error


I had sent my camera in for the same issue and they did nothing to help with it. Seems to happen when battery gets low or dies, lack of on-screen battery meter doesn't help. Typically have to manually twist the lens to close it or open it after fresh batteries installed and then seem to fix it.

Malfunctioning of Nikon 2100


I had the same problem.The shutter button is faulty and is always half pressed - auto focus is operational (this is the step before actually the picture is taken. Try to clean it up with some special electrical contact spray. if this does not work - need to replace it - Not a simple job for the novice. You might need to take the camera to a service center for a spare on-off-expose button. I had an old faulty camera where I took the button from it. That solved the problem.

Sony DSC-P72 won't snap a picture


Have you done a "hard" reset?

Under the jack cover (below the zoom rocker on the back of the camera) there is a small "reset" button. You'll need to press it with a sharp object, and hold it down for a few seconds. If it was a setting problem, this should resolve it.

Nothing happens when I press button to snap a picture


its not a great problem. but the thing is
1>>you have been handling it in quite rough manner
2>>the camera must be a very old aged one
3>>must be a faulty piece.

the buttoon has got loose. u wont get charged much for fixing this in service centre. so u its not a big deal to spend few bugs for camera.

Not focusing


Do you hear any unusual friction noise while the lens assembly projects out.. if so then the traction assembly of your zoom barrel has developed mechanical obstruction, in which case it has to be serviced. Take it to the service centre and the problem will be solved. If the zoom assembly does not fully extent to its homing position, the camera retracts and lens and powers itself off. Enjoy

Trimming function won't work


This is Digital Zoom I take it. best to ignore it then and do all image editing in an image editor. Do get onto Panasonic Tech Support that may have an answer for you.
