Powers Up but won't take picture

Our camera powers up fine, but when you push the button it will not auto-focus nor will it actually take the picture. I tried removing the battery and reinstalling and also removing the memory card and reinstalling to no avail. Please help

    Look like there is something adrift in there- does the mirror flip up?
    Check the contact pins on the lens are all working[in and out]
    but more then that I guess its back to Canon ans that wont be good news- but you check out with them or the support site sto see if there is a DIY remedy- but don't hold your breath

Auto focus is to slow


Try pressing the button down all the way quickly. If that doesn't work just play with your settings until it works.

My fujifilm fine pix av 190 camera does not shoot when pressing shoot button....i have to press hard to shoot...


That camera could have two things causing it, 1 the soft press is the auto focus. Most cameras have a half press or soft press to turn on the auto focus and the hard press or press to take the picture. That could just be the camera. Some cameras that can be turned off in the menu. If that is not the case and it does not auto focus when you press it, then it is the button. We used to see that a lot with cameras. The button gives sometimes.

My Vivitar takes blurry pictures. Kindly show me what to do to sharpen the focus. Thanks.


To focus on your subject, lightly push the shutter button (the button you use to take pictures) only half way down. When you push the shutter button half way down, this auto-focuses the camera and you can then fully press the shutter button to take your picture.

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.


I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

Will not focus and the "push reset button" message pops up then powers the camera down. Needless to asy pushing the reset button makes no difference. Is this worth repairing?patyson


Sounds like one of the capacitors on the electronic circuit board is defective. Power is not getting to the auto focus motor. Was the camera dropped recently or placed in a wet/moisture-rich environment? Try taking the battery out and leaving the camera in the open, exposed to light and flowing air for a day. If it is a board problem, the cam will need to be opened and the board tested and certain parts replaced....an expensive proposition. Cam replacement will be a much cheaper solution. Check ebay or craigslist for a cheap replacement. Good luck....

Only one auto focus point


have you already pushed the focus point button - top right, under your thumb and then push the set button? Pushing the set button will flip between only the centre focus point and all 7.

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Focus


This camera has TTl auto focus so it can't be switched to manual so that idea is quickly stomped on. A silly question, are you half pushing the shoot button down first to activate the auto focus. If you don't and just hit the shoot button you'll definitely get out of focus shots. Have you sat down and read the manual on how to correctly focus. A number of things can crop up which can fool the autofocus into a wrong setting. Have you dropped the camera or has someone else done so? The lens assembly could be damaged. Try pointing the camera at something about three feet away whilst half pushing the shoot button then still holding the button half way point the camera at something a long way off. Can you hear the mechanism trying to focus and does the picture in the LCD change. If it's all quiet and the picture doesn't change then it could be a damaged focus motor or a connection to it is broken. Are you sure the camera isn't switched to Macro. A lot of people get caught with that one. You'll never shoot a focussed picture in macro unless it's less than a foot or so away. BMW
