Question about Nikon Coolpix 8700 Digital Camera
I push the shutter button and the camera focuses and the flash pops up but it will not take a picture. Any answers?
This may be the same problem that requires you to press the LOCK button to actually take a picture. I found a solution and have posted to the questions mentioning the LOCK problem. Anyways, here goes, if that is not the problem please disregard what follows:
Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:
Turn the camera ON.
Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.
Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.
In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.
You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)
Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.
Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.
Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.
Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.
Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.
