Check the cleaness of electric contacts. If dirty, apply vinegar with cotton swabs and dry. Do not touch the mess cause it is caustic (gloves, maybe?).

Flash stopped working


No, the battery is the same as you use to make all the other pictures. To check if your flash really does not work, please put the camera in automatic (green camera symbol and hold your hand in front of the lens while pressing the shutter button (to make it look dark) The flash should pop up and should go off.
When you don't put the camera in auto, it expects you to tell if the flash should fire or not.
If your battery is bad, or almost empty, it can't charge the flash, so it won't fire either.

Camera doesn't zoom or take picture.I put in new batteries and new film and before this camera worked great!


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Grainy pictures...iso problem for olympus stylus 820


Without ISO you will not be able to take pictures.
ISO is the old ASA which is related to film speed
ISO 50 is very slow film speed and may result in blur and some grainy appearance , same as if you PUSHED ISO up to 800 in low light.

Try setting it to ISO 100 and see if that helps.

You can still select auto, but its related to either shutter or aperture priority in relation to the set film speed ( now ISO 100)

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at...


on rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital

Pentax zx 50 35mm slr


Others here have suggested the problem lays with the plastic gear on the advancing motor beside the mirror.

This might cost $100 or so...?

Battery meter


Give a cleaning to the contacts of the camera in the Battery chamber.
Look for the contact plate in the battery cover.
Look in the film pressure plate in the back door,and check its position or look for any dirt between them.
Then you have to check the drive motor.

Pentax zx-50 Shutter Problems?


I really think this is the classic zx - 50 shutter motor problem : small motor on the side of the mirror box is not cocking the shutter . This is very repairable but unfortunately it requires fair amount stripping down of the camera to get to the fault and so you will have to take it in for repairs.

Pentax MZ 50 film winding problem


Well, I'm not a camera repairman, but it sounds to me (and probably to you too) that the electronics are damaged or perhaps there's dust in the contacts inside. I also have an MZ-50. There's so many electronics involved and they don't age so gracefully. I would consider buying another one off eBay or you can get a ZX-30 (same as MZ-30) for $75 from Blue Moon Camera & Machine with a 1 year warranty (parts and labor). The best way would be, in my opinion, to get a manual, mechanical camera from the 1970s and put a good lens on it. Those seem to last forever. No electronics to worry about. Advance and rewind the film manually. You can use a digital camera as a light meter to set the aperture and shutter speed. I'm thinking of going this route when my MZ-50 finally conks out.
