What camera are you using? Generally, when a camera is zoomed in like a telescope, it's difficult to keep the scene steady. When photographing a still shot, the camera will in most cases compensate for the shaking by selecting a faster shutter speed. You can over-ride these in several ways, but that's for another message. When videoing, especially indoors, the camera will shoot at slower shutter speeds, and wider lens opening. Zooming in, like a telescope, creates the shake. Suggest that you shoot with the zoom all the way out (wide angle instead of telephoto), and get closer to your subject. Also placing the camera on a tripod or mini tripod, will steady the shot.

SOURCE: Camera turns on fine. I could view picture and

Your have a "Display" button that toggles thru different display modes .. one of the modes turns off the LCD backlight .. that useful if you are in bright light and dont need the backlight .. you have a very nice "transflective" display that works great in bright light without the backlight ... you can get more shots with the backlight turned off on each battery charge .(about 25% more) .

so each time you operate the display mode button you will get a different display .. one shows a hystogram .. one turns off the backlight and one puts the camera in a normal mode ..

if everything is working right then even with the backlight turned off you should be able to go outside or any brightly lighted area and see the picture on the screen ..

SOURCE: I have Olympus FE 340 8.0 mega pixel camera. Now,

OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!

Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.

Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with your palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and in between the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

Please rate our help ++++Thankis for using FIXYA

SOURCE: keep getting a message saying zoom error on my

Had the same problem, but I just "fixed" mine! I slammed mine on the kitchen counter while holding down the shutter button and sliding the "on" button at the same time. The camera is working fine now. Obviously, my camera was not under warranty and I do not have insurance, so I had nothing to lose by trying this "fix."

Zoom on nikon d5100


In either mode, you're zooming by turning the zoom ring on the lens? In live view mode, if you zoom in by pressing the magnifying glass button, all you're doing is zooming the display, not the image itself.

Look within the settings within the camera's setup menu (I am not too clued-up with this model but I'll try) Look for things like sharpness, photo effects, ISO modes and resolution. make sure the sharpness is set toward the sharper end of the scale, that there no added effects enabled and that the ISO mode (if not in auto) is set between 100 and 600.
Also, if you are using digital zoom you will reduce picture quality.
Finally, using maximum zoom requires a very steady hand (or a tripod) as the slightest shake or twitch will be amplified many times at the target - end of the shot.
Good luck Bill, hope this helped a bit.

Two common causes, camera shake and having switched the camera to macro mode (extreme close up). Remember that you have to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is usually a short delay before the shutter fires.

Otherwise it is probably a fault requiring professional attention.

I have a Panasonic DMC-LX2 digital camera, I'm based in the UK. Has worked fine for a couple of years, but 2 weeks ago, when powered up, none of the buttons work. Screen is illuminated, lens emerges OK,...


I just got identical situation today, and I have no clue at all. However, I figure that the camera is actually working busy like someone is holding the "UP" button continuously. To see this, power on your camera at any mode except the "Scene mode". After it's on, turn the mode select knob to "Scene mode". I saw my camera menu flashing like crazy. When you press any button, the menu should stop running. But once you don't press the button, the menu start running again.
Please let me know if you have any update.

ZooMING Problem


You can't zoom when you are in 3MP mode (default highest resolution). The phone can only zoom in VGA/1MP/2MP modes.

To switch modes:
Start the Camera
Choose "Settings"
Choose "Picture Size"
Pick "2 MP" or "1 MP" or "VGA"

Note: Lowering the Picture Size lowers your picture resolution and quality.

Take the camera about 6 inches away from the card. Use P mode on all automatic settings, but use the MF flash (press the close-up tulip twice, on the bottom of the navigation wheel), set to 15 cm (use left and right buttons to adjust). Try putting the camera on a mini tripod and the card in a holder to minimize camera shake. Also, ensure that the optical image stabilizer is on. When viewing the taken picture on the camera, zoom in as you would when taking the picture to see the picture at full resolution.

Taking pictures


You may have turned off the viewing screen mode. I've turned my off just to save the battery. There should be a setting/mode so that can at least scroll thru to view the images you've shot. As for the Busy Message my best guess is the memory cards full. My camera (a kodak) has the option to save images to a very small, useless internal memory or another card. Perhaps yours offers same - so switch to large memory. As for zooming in as close as you can, you may want to visit a state that's closer. Yea as you can see the zooms on the Point & Shoot cameras are very limited. Its only good for zooming into things that are just a very short distance away.

Blurry pictures


What you are experiencing is a phenomenon called camera shake. Camera shake is caused when there isn't enough light for the camera to set a fast shutter speed. The camera's shutter opens and has to stay open for up to several seconds for enough light to hit the CCD to capture the image. Most people cannot hold a camera perfectly still for more then 1/60th of a second. In addition, when the telephoto feature is used on an Ultra Zoom camera, the field of view becomes smaller. Since a lens with a large focal length provides a small picture area, even slight imperceptible camera movement will cause a blurred picture. To reduce camera shake, try one or more of the following when applicable: Change to a fast shutter speed. Put the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod. Brace yourself against a tree or wall. Put the camera in sports mode. For situations with low light, raise the ISO. (Please note this will impede image quality)
