I have the same phone and the same problem it does not happen all the time. I quick fix is to cut the phone off remove the 1.Battery 2. sim card 3.memory card. Reinstall them in the 3 first 2 second 1 third. Reformatting the card can work but when you are not at a computer to transfer your pictures to you do not want to reformat you will lose them. This 1,2,3 is the way I fix my sony when this problem occurs.Good luck. I have all the updated software a drivers from sony and I still get this problem some times. Hope this works for you.

Do you mean when you press the shutter release button, oohing happens?
Are you sure you are giving the camera enough time to focus, before you press the button complete?
Normaly, you have to press the button half way, and wait till the camera is focused. The camera will give an audio or a visual signal. Then press the button complete.
Be patient. Point an shoot camera's sometimes need more than a second to focus.
It is not like in the old days, every time you pressed the shutter release button the camera fired.
I don't know what your perception of proper focusing is.
If there is enough light and enough contrast in the subject you want sharp (in focus) on your picture, you only have to point the camera to the point you want in focus on. Then you press the shutter release button half and wait till the camera is in focus. This is indicated by the focus point on top of the screen. as long as you keep the button half way down, you can move the camera and the focus will not be changed. So you can make changes to the composition. Then when you press the button down complete the picture should be sharp, where you focused on.
Don't try to make a picture, by pressing the button complete. as quick as you can, because the camera won't react as fast as a DSRL.
The manual only can give two reasons why the camera would not take pictures.
One, there is no memory card placed.
Two, the memory card is full.
You are sure you have placed a working empty memory card.
If you did save all the pictures on the memory card to a computer, try formatting the card in the camera.
When you are pressing the shutter release button half, does the camera say it is focused correct? light bottom corner of the display.
Your camera has a setting to take pictures with a remote control. Did you put the camera in that setting? Read page 76 of the manual.
To focus on your subject, lightly push the shutter button (the button you use to take pictures) only half way down. When you push the shutter button half way down, this auto-focuses the camera and you can then fully press the shutter button to take your picture.
The LCD picture is clear indicates that the lens is clear enough to capture the image, if there would be any disturbance on the lens you would come to know on the LCD itself.
When you push the button to shoot , it could be that you are pressing the button just half way which is a function used to focus on the object before full press of the button or actual shot of the image.
I would recommend you to half press the button till you focus on your image and then when your hands are steady and there is no shake on the camera , go ahead and press the button full which would result in the image being taken.
By default, the camera button in the W810i isn't the most successful one. It usually requires a stronger press inside, until Camera Mode is on. I'd suggest sending the handset to a certified lab if it is still under warranty. If not, take the back cover off after having turned your phone off. Remove the battery. Unscrew the little screws at each side, and divide the two panels. On the panel with the camera button, please make sure the button is located above the pad that should be pressed and that there are no interruptions. Then, put everything back on, and check if the button works properly.
I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject may look in focus in the viewfinder, but is not. When you fully depress the shutter in one motion (rather than pressing half way first), the camera will attempt to focus before it takes the shot. If you are not careful about camera movement, you may inadvertently be focusing on something other than what you intended. My camera (and it seems all digicams) has trouble focusing in low light, so you definitely want to use the half press in such situations. Even then, I don't always get the focus correct. Thank the digital Gods for instant feedback! Personally, I almost always use the half press method.
To get the 740 in manual focus, you hold the "OK" button down until you see the viewfinder display a focusing scale. It takes a second or so. You should also see "MF" and "AF" designations in the lower left corner of the viewfinder when the scale displays. Use the left and right arrows to select the focus mode you want (i.e. MF or AF), then use the up and down arrows to adjust the focus distance. You'll notice that the area you are focusing on is enlarged when you use the up and down arrows.
