See if the dial is stuck on "Set". If it is, try twisting it to "Auto" and see if this helps. If nothing happens, it would appear that the contacts in the dial or the circuitry are faulty, and will need servicing.

Try to remove the battery from the camera for 15 minutes and see if it improves, most cameras have a reset button, I will have to look and see if yours has one to solve this problem.

Try removing the batteries and see if it reset.

    the camera should reset by simply removing the batteries, as your Fuji does not have an internal battery to preserve settings.

    If this does not work, it means that the internal firmware is corrupted, and must be fixed at a camera repair shop, as when the camera does not even start, you cannot upload the upgrade.

    Often you fix this kind of troubles by replacing the battery.

My Kodak Easyshare V1223 turns on and shows all icons normally on the view screen as well as older pictures on the memory card...but shows everything else black and pictures remain black even with flash...


Hi!

It is not necessary something wrong with the camera itself. Sometimes the simptom is caused by the memory card. Reading from it works (so you can see older pictures) but every new picture is written wrong, so the camera shows only black.

Hope it is only the memory card in your case.

Good luck,

Bogdan

My powershot A540 shows a black screen and takes blank photos. Something between the viewer/card and the lens is closed and only opens occasionally, no matter how much I fiddle with the settings.


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, sometimes with lines, 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, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The problem I am having with my Canon PowerShot S2 IS is the iris is staying closed. No matter what I do it just stays closed. What could have caused this? How would I fix this problem?

As you own an S2, if you live in the US, recommend contacting Canon first as mentioned in the link. Although it's highly likely that you can quickly fix your camera with the techniques shown in the article, why not get professional free repair from Canon if it's offered? The Canon repair may help prevent this from happening again.

My Moultrie I40 seems to be stuck in set up mode. won't advance to Auto. test button brings back error 4800. Tried calling their customer service, no matter what extension i select i just get hung up on.


what does battery % say? twice this prob was solved by using good brand new bats; might try removing bats with cam on; turn cam off; replace bats and power up. Wait until setup screen is on before pressing mode.
