Question about Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Takes Own Picture!

When the camera is turned on, it takes a picture by itself! It then will sometimes let you take pictures, sometimes it won't. The batteries are charged, the memory is not full. Help!

    Hi. Good suggestion but doesn't appear stuck when investigated. Should we pull apart?

Does the trigger button seem to be ok? May it have become dirty and/or sticky? If the trigger is stuck, this may be your problem.

    If you feel confident that you can put it back together you might try to see if any condictive dirt have gathered on the print or shutter button. If you have any warranties I'd try that route first.

    There may also be cleaning sprays that you might use to clean the button area to get rid of any invisible dirt, but be careful; it might damage your camera. a can of compressed air could also blow out any dirt stuck under the button.

Canon eos 600d, takes a picture on turning on and freezes. When I turn off and on again, it takes a picture again and freezes. Cannot access menu or any other button. how do I resolve this issue?


Camera electronics has developed a mind of its won and has gone crazy. You need to have it fixed or replaced whichever is cheaper.

Make sure the battery is good since many newer electronics operate erratically when the battery condition is not up to par.

After I take a picture sometimes it takes quite a while until I can take another picture. I hold the button about half way down but that doesn't work.


1) clean the main switch for dirty, corrosion, with c. cleaner
2) test the switch for defective, use VOM for continuity and replace if necessary
3) use batteries for same type alkaline Ultra Heavy duty,
4) see if are the o.k direction.
5) clean the contacts batteries with c. cleaner

How to capture best picture


That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to the viewer. The best procedure for taking a portrait won't be the best procedure for taking a landscape, for example. You probably won't want to take a picture of a grandfather the same way you'd take a picture of his granddaughter, either.
That's just the technical side. You also have full control of the artistic side. You decide on the camera position, the time of day, vertical or horizontal orientation, etc. Sometimes you can reposition the subject, sometimes you can't (buildings, trees, and mountains are a little difficult to move). You decide what's in the picture and what's not. You decide whether the picture should be bright or dark.
The camera is just a tool. You're the photographer.

Best setting for a olympus stylus tough 6000


The best setting depends on what you're taking a picture of and, more importantly, what YOU want that picture to say to the viewer. The best setting for a portrait most likely won't be the best setting for a landscape, for example. You probably won't want a picture of a grandfather to convey the same impression and mood as a picture of his granddaughter, and you probably want something different for a picture of the two of them together.
That's why the camera offers so many different settings. It just takes pictures. You MAKE pictures by deciding what to include and exclude, whether you have a deep or narrow depth of field, and all the other little things.
The camera manual tells you what the various controls do. There should be plenty of introductory photography books at your local library that will explain the effects of those controls. I suggest taking one (or more) of those books, your camera manual, and the camera itself, and experimenting to see what happens with changing the various settings. Take a lot of pictures and look at them on your computer. You can always delete these pictures when you're done.

A red lightning arrow keeps flashing on the screen and the camera isn't doin anything,what can the problem be?


Hi.

A red flashing lightening bolt can mean different things on different camera's. The most common are that you are too far away from the object you want to take a picture of. That the flash on the camera needs to be turned off and that the flash itself is charging up and won't allow a picture to be taken.

Try turning the flash off and see if it will let you take a picture.




Regards.

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.


The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.

No.


Try taking a picture without the flash. Go to a mode other than Auto (try Portrait), and turn off the flash. If the camera takes a picture, then the flash itself is not working properly.

First thing to check is the safety feature that turns the flash off if the case is opened. Look on the bottom of the camera, and make sure that the center two screws are in place. If you're missing one of the center screws, then that's your problem. Replace the missing screw with either of the other two bottom screws.

If the screws are in place, again try a new set of batteries. Sometimes you can get a bad set of batteries right out of the package. If new batteries don't fix it, then the flash itself probably needs replaced. This is difficult, requires some soldering, and goes beyond what I can describe here.

Nikon coolpix L4 won't take pictures & turns off


I have the same camera & personally, I hate it. My camera does that all the time, sometimes, it takes a while for the picture to actually take. Try holding down the button for a while, that's what I have to do with mine. The camera sucks up all the battery energy with only a few picture takes which I really don't understand. I think that's also why it's cutting off while you're using it. Does the phrase, "Warning: Batteries exhausted" sound familar, especially right before the camera shuts off? Oh, & before I go, my personal advice to you is: Get a new camera. I don't even know why I bought mine, soon I'm getting a new one. Yay. I hope this helped you, sorry about the camera problems. Much luck! :D
