Question about General Electric E850 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Shutter malfunctioning I bought a new camera and within a month the shutter has started to malfunction. It doesn't shut completely when switched off nor does it open completely when switched on. If you touch the shutter manually it opens. Is there a way to fix this problem myself? Since my warranty card is not signed or date of purchase mentioned by the dealer I bought it from!

No...return it for repair or replacement.  It may simply have dirt in the lens cover.  Digital cameras do not have shutters.

Keeps indicating error 20


That error code indicates a mechanical malfunction. either a problem with the mirror box, or a shutter malfunction is the usual cause - the shutter being more likely

Nikon d90 error showing and doesn't ftre


On page 256 of the D-90 users manual it says that ERR indicates a camera malfunction that can be cleared by releasing the shutter. On my D-90 when this occurs, I have to turn the camera off to make the shutter release. Sometimes, but rarely, I have to remove and reinstall the battery to get the shutter to release.

The manual also says that if this error occurs frequently or persists to contact n authorized Nikon service center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon,com before you contact a service center to see what tech support advises. I have heard of people resolving this problem by upgrading the firmware (camera software). Nikon tech support can tell you if this will help.

The mirror in the my nikon d 70 is stuck in the middle and gives me message ERROR and LO F4 when i push to take a picture.


Try setting the camera to the 'M' manual mode and remove the lens. See if the shutter will fire and complete the cycle. You should have a memory card installed or have the menu set to 'No CF card'. If the shutter does fire, then re-mount the lens and return the mode to 'P'. If it does not fire the shutter, then it is likely the there is a malfunction with the mirror box components (a broken spring). That type of repair is not a DIY and will require a complete dis-assembly of the camera.

Slower trigger time then when I first bought it! Really SLOW!!!!


Get in front of the camera and watch the lens. See if you can tell when the shutter is opening and when it closes. I suspect your camera is taking a very long exposure, either because of the settings you made or due to a malfunction of the shutter mechanism. Observation of the shutter may be enough for you to see what is causing the problem. Long exposure = whiteout.

Panasonic Lumix Fx35 Malfunctioning


Go into the setup menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. This procedure might work. If you can't get into the menu because of malfunctioning buttons, try a manual reset...remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...insert the card first and then the battery...turn it on.

Nikon D70 Shutter Problem


I have a Nikon D70 which failed completely but exhibited similar symptoms.
I was fortunate in that I had taken out 3 years free warranty at the point of purchase and therefore saved the £90 (sterling) repair cost.
Nikon cameras are designed to be robust and should give a lifetime's service. Most should give 150,000 shutter actuations.
There is a piece of free software available on the Web that will tell you how many actuations were recorded on your recent photos.
Unfortunately, in the fast moving world of digital cameras, the value of a 2nd user older camera is very low.
You need to decide if you were outgrowing this camera body and want to replace it with something better or whether you would be lost without it. My repair took more than 1 month and I was not able to take any photos during his time.
I hope this helps.

Fuji digital camera


I think I've solved the same problem on a Finepix A350. My shutter has been sticking for months now on powerup. I brushed all round the periphery of the shutter with a perfectly clean, small, camel hair brush and now it operates perfectly! So maybe the answer is to keep a new brush specially for this. Hope this works for you! I certainly would not try dropping the camera as someone suggested.
