Olympus OM-4 Shutter Release Button Stuck

As I was shooting one day, the shutter release button stayed, although the shutter did fire. The button is still stuck down, and hasn't popped up yet. I do not want to spend that much money attempting to get it repaired, so is it possible to do it myself?

  1. First ry to reset the Self Timer lever.
  2. Try to change the aperture.
  3. Try to unscrew the lens
  4. Open the film chamber slightly (just to loosen any lever that has got stuck)
One of these operations would dislodge any normal lever jam. If these fail to solve the problem, take it to a repair shop.

Slowest shutter speed


30 seconds, or when you put it om B (Bulb) press the shutter release button to start exposure and wait as long as you want. Then again press the shutter release button to stop exposure. You need to track time yourself.

The shutter of the camera is not closing


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.

Manual setting of focus


Like many point&shoot cameras, the SZ-12 does not have manual focus. The closest you can come is to point the camera at the object your want in focus, press the shutter release button halfway, then frame the photo the way you want it and press the shutter release button the rest of the way.

How do I use the timer and remote to take pictures


Press cursor-down (marked with a one-handed clock) and then select the desired self-timer delay. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual. Full details are in the "Self-timer shooting" section of the manual (page 28 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

If you're asking about the RM-UC1 remote release, simply plug it into the camera's USB port and then use the button on it instead of the shutter release button on the camera.

How do i sync my ML-L3 to my Nikon D5100


Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.
To change the release mode, press the [i] button to bring up the information display screen. Press it again to put the cursor in the info display screen. Use the cursor keys to select the release mode --- it's the fifth item from the top along the right edge of the screen --- and press the [OK] button. Use the cursor keys to highlight the desired release mode and press [OK]. To return to shooting mode, press the shutter release button halfway.
Full details are in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 35 in my copy). If you need manual, you may download one here.

Film was in camera, frame 18. Batteries had failed at frame 17, had to depress "B Lock" button" and set shutter to 60 to release shutter. Replaced batteries with fresh batteries, battery...


This camera is somewhere between fifteen and thirty years old. It is highly unlikely that spares would be available, and it would be extremely expensive to have it repaired in any case, most artificers familiar with the internal layout having probably retired years ago. Maybe the camera should be retired too ?

Error .press shutter release button again


did a shoot on friday and came home and downloaded all the pics and then I went to do a shoot today and my camera wouldnt work. When you go to take a shot the shutter closes and then and error comes up and says press shutter button again to release. This opens the shutter back up. The picture it takes is only the bottom half of the object you are shooting....any ideas of what I can do to fix this? I have only had my camera 30 days so I have no clue what it could be.

Olympus OM-4 stuck shutter


This is very common on many OM SLRs and is caused by dirty shutter magnets. If you look on the web you can find details on how to do this yourself, but as the OM-4 is top of the line I'd highly recommend getting it done professionally as part of a CLA (clean lubricate adjust) service. Last time I had it done in the UK it cost about £80 and when I had it done to my OM-2SP in the USA last year it cost just under $100.

Stuck shutter release button on my D100


Ouch...

The damage may require parts, but maybe not. If I were doing the work, I would charge in the $50-$60 range , plus parts if needed.

Nikon will likely quote you much higher $200+

You can use the repair service locater here on Fixya to find a repair shop in your area
