Question about HP Photosmart 850 Digital Camera

1 Answer

MY CAMERA WAS EXPOSED TO A MAGNET NOW WITH POOR PICTURE

Last year technical support asked me to remove the batteries with the shutter open...which worked at that time. I am not sure if I am following the same sequence of steps now, but I am unable to clear the problem this time.

My Canon AT-1 35mm does not take pictures


Remove the bottom plate.
There is a long lever that attached to the wind gear. On the opposite end, it has electro-magnet. You will need to replace this magnet.

Once the film has been advanced, it can't be advanced again until you take a picture. There's a dial ring under the shutter release that locks out shutter release. Turn the dial to unlock the shutter.

If you opened the bottom you saw the magnet that holds the shutter /mirror mechanism closed- sometimes it and the lever it holds get dirt or corrosion on them and won't hold the lever when you **** the shutter? it can also be the battery is not dead, but not enough voltage to supply enough power to hold lever.

Day Light Pictures looks over exposed


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, 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 the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

For your camera (the A460) it's not possible to set the shutter to 15 seconds. Instead, set it to manual mode, turn off the flash, go to a darkened room, take the picture and open the door while the red and yellow light are flashing. Repeat until the shutter becomes unstuck. However, I must say that the chances are probably not very good to fix this with this method. And unfortunately professional repair will be too costly. If repeated tries do not work, it might be time to consider a new camera.

Canon AE1 shutter problem, shutter will not release


Well, here is where it gets a little tricky. You'll need an x-acto knife, some lighter fluid and some q-tip swabs. You need to carefully cut the plastic shield on 3 edges to make kind of a door to the magnet.

You are doing this to expose the magnet face so it can be cleaned with the lighter fluid using the cotton swabs. Careful how you make the cuts.

Shutter release magnet faulty ( your camera is cocked but since you cannot release the shutter you cannot wind the film ). Remedy : open bottom cover by removing the two screws. You will see two small electro magnets one on the left hand side and the shutter release one on the right hand side ( it is the bigger one of the two ). The very thin wires from the magnet to the small circuit board on the right hand side may be broken : inspect and resolder 10 joints you see on the p.c. board. If no joy replace the s.r.magnet.

This happened to me to both the Canon's I had. I found out it was a dead battery. Once I replaced those it worked fine. The battery is hidden under the hand grip which can be taken off using a coin in the screw slot.
