There is, as people have been looking for, a way to count the total number of exposures on your E-1. May work on other bodies, but I don't have those to try]. A. Firmware readout on E-1 [may be the same on all E Series bodies]: 1. Turn the E-1 on 2. Open the storage media door 3. Press down the Playback Mode button and OK button at the same time You will then get the firmware info displayed on the LCD monitor. B. More "internal info" [ALL E series bodies?]: There's a neat little trick to know some statistics about your E-body: 1: open the CF card door 2: press "play" and "ok" at the same time 3: press the arrows in this order: up; down; left; right 4: fully depress shutter once 5: press up arrow, and now there is magic on the screen pressing the arrows, you can go through some pages a: firmware details of attached goodies b: R= shutter release count (with my camera it was obviously reset during service), S= flashes fired, M= pixel mapping (mapped pixels?), U= SSWF ? At your own risk of course...

You need to have the camera serviced. It sounds like you shutter may be sticking and any loose part should be an instant red flag. It had to come from somewhere and it could be related to your shutter delay problem.

My canon 50d squeals when shuter is released

The shutter is a moving part. It is also made up of several plastic leafs that rub together when opening and closing. Lift the mirror to see if any of them are damaged. You will have to fire the shutter each time before you look as there are 2 sets of shutter leafs. 1 set at the top and 1 set at the bottom firing in rotation. 1 set is of 4 and 1 set is of 2 leafs. also check the action of the mirror. Both are run from the same motor and both have springs to help operation. metal on plastic tends to wear so how many shots have been fired? To check shutter count look up astrojargon and download the EOSinfo software (free) and plug your camera in to your pc. Should give you a shutter count.

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.

I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

The pictures are coming out black.

Sounds like the film is not exposed, shutter not opening. If possible fire the shutter with the camera open/back off, pointed towards a light source, if the shutter opens you will see the light thru the shutter/lens. If no light is seen then the shutter is stuck.

My Nikon D2x is having shutter problems, HELP!

the only time i have ever seen this on my D2x is when the lens isnt snapped all the way on. but since you have tried several lenses, i am sure they are snapped on. this leads me to believe something is wrong with one of the contacts on the camera where the lens snaps on--check them to be sure they are springing out and clean. check the owners manual to see if there is another cause for this message.

Shutter stays open-battery sign flashes but they are full..

This could be one of a number of problems, but first check the battery contacts are clean. These cameras rely on an elecrtic motor to drive the mirror and prime the shutter. The extra current drawn may cause the voltage to drop if the battery contacts are dirty.

Another possibility is a shutter fault, either the shutter has a sticky deposit or there is an electrical problem. Last time I had one like this I found a crack in the solder connection to the shutter.

Putting a new battery meants the camera will reset to a default setting. This means the shutter will be instructed to fire and the mirror return to it's initial position.

Do you also cover the IV-A?


open the back cover and fire the shutter a few times towards light. the shutter should open completely with no hesitation. check to see if there is oil on the blades. if so the camera must be cleaned.
if no oil on the blades then the shutter magnets are at fault and it will have to be repaired. you may need to hold the counter lever in to fire the shutter with back opened.

Too bright photos when using the flash

Check your manual with regard using the flash and the shutter setting available. You could try to take some of the light out of the situation by holding over the flash folded layers of tissue paper - but you will have to experiment -how see much is enough. Meanwhile do get on the the Fuji Tech Support team.

Bronica SQ-Ai shutter problem

There could be a number of issues with this problem. Make sure the contacts at the rear of the lens and those on the body that connect with those on the lens are clean and straight. If so, the problem may be in the shutter within the lens. There is a magnet inside the shutter that sometimes becomes contaminated and fails to hold the shutter blades open for the selected shutter speed. The face of the magnet may need to be cleaned. There are also timing switches that sometimes go bad or need adjusting. These internal problems need to be taken care of by a competent technician since the lens needs to be completely disassembled. I have also seen these shutters go bad and need to be replaced. Let's hope that's not the problem because it will be difficult to get a new shutter for the lens--but not imposible. God luck.
