Hi there
Try spraying the shutter with WD-40 and keep on opening and closing it until it works properly

Good luck and regards

We have this camera and it will turn on & zoom. The camera will not snap the picture. What could the problem be? We have changed the batteries without sucess The camera has hardly been used. Larry


The problem could be that you're not fully pressing the shutter button. Many people squeeze the button until something happens... that's the half press that causes the autofocus to operate etc. Because something happened, they don't continue to press hard enough to actually take the snap.

Of course it's also possible that the plunger on the shutter button is too short and isn't reaching the switch properly, but I've only seen that on a kids cheap camera where it was squeezed too hard with impatience because cheap cameras operate slowly.

Oh, and one more thing: are you squeezing the button for long enough? I don't know how slow this particular model is.

My S800 has been amazing, however since Thursday when I take a pic and zoom in, the image is very bright, or white and has lines all over it (looks like a bad canvass painting, non zoomed images are fine!...


Hi, the problem is in the shutter that you can found inside of the lens unit and maybe the shutter not work properly or damage. you will notice also once you take picture during night time the pictue is good but if you zoom in you will find the lines all over the picture.

tryo to open your camera and check the lens unit. First try to disconnect the the lens cable and connect then check. if the problem still occur, you need to do is open the lens unit and adjust the shutter if working fine or not.also check the flat cable if its not broken.

if you can't do this bring to service center

goodluck and thank you my friend

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Over-exposure of image whilst zooming in brigh


I now have the exact same issue. When not zoomed or fully zoomed the exposure is correct, however when partially zoomed the aperture does not engage and stays fully open. So basically I cannot really use the zoom or the picture is over exposed. Note - actually about 2/3 mechanical zoom and on works, so I can use a bit of the zoom.

Suggestions?

Shutter Opens Partially


This is a common problem for the A520 (it happens on mine sometimes). Recommend trying only the simple fixes listed on the following web page, but do not recommend opening the front cover which is also listed here. The A520 is a little tricky getting back together.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W90


I had the same problem, I gently pried open the black windows of the shutter with my index finger nail, and applied very gentle pressure (pulling outward) while I pressed the power button. THEN... the whole zoom assembly moved EVER SO SLIGHTLY. So, I repeated the exact same process, with a little bit of pressure... and voila... the lens assembly opened fully and I was able to take pictures.

Olympus C-750 shutter problems


Changing the firmware won't change anything. The micro switch may be stuck in the on postition. If you are familiar with micro circuits, you could get the switch from Olympus or USCamera.com and replace it. Or, send the camera to Olympus or an Olympus authorized shop.

Shutter will not fully open or close


It sounds like the shutter mechanism is dirty, or you have a bad spring. Try taking it to a camera shop and have them clean it. It is not very expensive, and well worth it if it fixes the problem. Best regards, nightdiver Let me know if it solves the problem.
