Re: The shutter butto wont take pictures anymore. What...

These cameras are made in such a way that they contain a 'Zoom Lens' Block this unit has in it the iris mechanisim. When the camera has been dropped this frequently jams in the closed position with the concequental loss of pictures. This is one of the probable causes but definitly the only one. The cost of returning the camera to Fuli would be greater than the replacement cost with a second hand working camera.

Shutter button wont work

Something has bent or come a drift, not something you can fix yourself, take to camera repair shop for repair , first get a quote as repair may cast as much as a new camera .

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...


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,

I have a Canon PowerShot SD750, and now when I turn it on, the screen is blank. I'm sure it has something to do with the lens because I can still the the display icons. I tried to take a picture and it...

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 focus lens was hit by a basketball and it won't take pics.

Have you tried a different lens on the camera almost any lens with the same mm size will work. If it still does not take pictures with another lens. You should take it in for service.

Shutter problem...

Kindly explain the problem in detail. i.e.
1) how did this happened. all of a sudden or you dropped the camera, or something else.
2)when you half press the shutter button, does the camera focus , or its keep on trying to focus. if the camera would not focus the image it wont take the picture.
3) even it focuses the image instantly and still it is taking long time to expose the photo. ???

Sanyo vpc-e760 digital camera

i have the same problem ..
it was error 16 AND 21 .
im not entirely sure about the error 27 or any other
numbers ;
but i do know for a fact its because there
is something like dirt ; hairspray ; make up etc.
in the lens .
idk how to take the camera apart ..
but your best luck is to kind of jar your camera with your
palm or a book or something .
mine fell on the floor at first and was fixed ,
but today i dropped it in a little bit of sand and hasnt gone
back down yet .
im hoping i can fix it :/
let me know if any of you have any luck .

You mean the lens protector doors, not the camera shutter. This seems to be a problem on this camera. Aparently you bumped it against something or dropped it. The only way I know of to fix this is to take it apart and set the arm of the spring again into the side as it should be. You cant do it with out takeing it apart.
