What good is a camera that doesn't take photo's?

At the week-end, when i turned my camera on, the photo function has ceased to work. The lens does not extend and there is no image on the LCD! All menu options are visible on the LCD The playback function is working correctly though! Has anybody experienced anything like this before? Any help appreciated.

Contacted Fuji - they offered to fix it for ?160.Didnt give a reason for the failure. Didn't get it fixed as a new one only costs ?220! Will be keeping clear of Fuji's in the future.

Lens Error. Restart Camera. Camera gives this error message and then shuts off. I can't access photos or function buttons. What can I do?

Press the "MENU" button and navigate to the reset command and reset the camera. That may get the camera to function properly.

Nikon D40 will not take a picture.

I fixed it!! Turn the lens to Manual mode (moving to M). Twist the very tip of the lens till it unlocks.

If you twist the lens on the end far enough on the end to the right you will find it "locks". This is what is causing the screeching sound,, it's locked and can't auto focus. Twist the very end to the left till it releases. This fixed it for me.

Yep. another lens stuck.

i had this problem after putting it in a jug of bear (i know, i know...not so smart)...i washed the camera with a small amount of dishwashing detergent and a good rinse and it seemed to solve the problem for me....not sure if this is the recommended way of dealing with it though.

When i turn the camera to take a photo, no image appears in the LCD or the eyepiece. this just happened all the sudden. I am able to view pictures that I've already taken in the LCD and the LCD will also...

there may be two reasons for this problem. 1. may be a defective or broken CCD. 2. the shutter is not working may be due to broken flex circuit cable. in any of the case you have to get it fixed from a professional camera repairer

Lens won't retract : /

Another common problem. Lens troubles. You have either knocked your lens out of alignment or you have a foreign body jamming up the works in the lens control unit. There have been many so called fixes for these problems but usually end up causing more problems than curing. You could check that you have fully charged new batteries. Some cameras need that extra kick to get them to open the lens fully. Worn out batteries can stop a sticky lens in it's tracks and tell the processor there is a problem and to close down. It's well worth trying before writing it off.
