Re: The scene mode is in one loop!!!!!

I had this exact problem. The FX01 thought I was holding down the 'up' button! I sent it back under warranty and they replaced the board. However that doesn't mean it was unfixable; it's just cheaper for them to replace boards than test them and fix them. IMO.

Why is my manual Mode setting isn't working

The NIGHT SCENE and NIGHT+PORTRAIT scenes are meant to take time exposures of skylines and city streets by leaving the shutter open for several seconds. Therefore, it is necessary to stabilize the camera by bracing it against something solid or - ideally - by using a tripod or camera clamp.

so play around with the shutter speed and bring it to above 100
The procedure is as follows:
  1. Set the camera's Mode Dial to the M (Manual) shooting mode.
  2. Using the Control Dial(big wheel), set the shutter speed to 100.
  3. Holding +/- button and turning the control dail will change focal length.
  4. Play around a bit with this too utill you find right lighting for the image you need.
  5. Remember slower shutter speed needs long time to process the image

Kodak easy share C143 the shutter wont open

this is not much to go on. If I would have the camera in my hand, perhaps I should see more. Like if there was a scene on the display, after I switched on the camera.
If everything else looks ok with your camera, pleas look if your camera is still in the Smart Capture mode. Press the button on top of the camera, with the two camera logos on it (still and video camera) en use the arrow up and down keys on the back, to goto the Smart Captuer mode. When there, the camera should work correct. Most of the time, your camera is caught up in a scene mode, like beach scene, and does not have enough light to focus and therefore does not take a picture. It also could be in the video mode, without you knowing.

My polaroid iS2132 won't change settings when I turn the mode dial/Can't set the intelligent scene mode.

When you put the Mode dail to the SCN mode, It will enter the last used Scene mode. THEN press the MENU button to select other scene mode.
Don't turn any dail. Use the navigation controls left and right from the OK button, to move through the section. Press OK button to save and activate the selected scene mode.

Good evening I'm in Lima Peru on a medical mission away from the US for two weeks. I am on my 2nd week and my Nikon D200 stopped working. Before I left I thought the batteries were old and I replaced them...

Sorry to hear about your camera. Hope you already fixed it. If not, could you please precise what lens are you using? What are the precise description of the last "black out"? Please try to be as precise as possible(Circumstances/Was it inside or outside/Light condition/moisture/Any peripheral devices connected etc.)

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.

Every time i take a picture in low light or at night its blurry.

Set the Scene Mode for the appropriate Night landscape or Night protrait setting. If you are just taking in a view, then use Night landscape at nighttime (objects in the foreground could be out of focus in this mode). If you are photographing any number of people, animals, &/or objects at night, then use Night portrait (digital zoom would be unavailable in this mode).

In order to set the Scene Mode…
1. Enter scene mode: MODE in shooting mode --> SCENE (use the multi selector) --> OK.
2. Enter scene menu: MENU --> choose desired scene --> OK.
3. Frame the subject & shoot.

DON'T MOVE!! Nikon USA: "Slow shutter speeds are used to produce stunning night landscapes."

Flash wont work, settings are on for flash, and the multiburst is switched off.

Please note that:

1. You can not use the Flash when the Camera is set to Burst or Multi Burst mode.

2. You can not use the Flash when the ISO or Twilight mode is selected in the Scene Selection.

3. You can not use the Flash when mode dial is set to Movie.

4. Ensure that the battery is fully charged and the flash is turned ON.

Please set the Landscape mode or Snow mode or Beach mode in the Scene Selection and check if the flash is working.

5. Try initializing the Camera and check if it works normally.

NOTE: Initializing the Camera will reset the settings of the Camera to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camera.

6. Please press the Menu button on the Camera. Then, select the SETUP menu and select the SETUP 1 option of the Camera. Then, select the Initialize option to OK.

7. Try to power reset the Camera and check if it helps to resolve the issue. I suggest that you reset the Camera by removing the battery from the Camera and inserting it after 1 minute.

8. If the issue still persists then the Camera requires service.

Good Luck!!!!!!!

MVC-CD300 for Dummies?

for average still shots, do I need to constantly monitor & adjust scene selection (twilight, landscape, portrait)? No, just leave it on the little teal colored camera. If you want to use the scene selections then it must be on SCN. I unfortunately spent a lot of time when I first got this camera switching between scenes without putting it on SCN - so it didn't really change scenes! Also, when switching modes, must I turn camera off before rotating mode dial? No
