I had same problem and tried all sorts with variable success so decided must be hardware problem. After evenings of close analysis, found problem to be keypad connector socket (causing false "c" pulse [cancel] when taking pressure off shutter button) AND camera module connector socket having too high resistance on some contacts. I solved problem by cleaning sockets and plugs with switch cleaner, careful scrubbing and cleansing. problem gone. Problem can be got around by using panaramic, multi shoot or frame mode - Wid

Hi chicbenzon_1 ,

The LCD picture is clear indicates that the lens is clear enough to capture the image, if there would be any disturbance on the lens you would come to know on the LCD itself.

When you push the button to shoot , it could be that you are pressing the button just half way which is a function used to focus on the object before full press of the button or actual shot of the image.

I would recommend you to half press the button till you focus on your image and then when your hands are steady and there is no shake on the camera , go ahead and press the button full which would result in the image being taken.

Hope this helps ...:)

There is too much delay when I try to take a picture.

This is a common situation with most compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work when you press the shutter release button: it must focus on the subject, meter the light for proper exposure, and switch the electronics from displaying on the LCD to recording the image to memory. Larger (and more expensive) cameras have additional hardware to deal with most of this, eliminating the "shutter lag."

You can reduce the lag by pressing the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter the exposure. Keep the button halfway down until the right moment and then press it the rest of the way down.

When i depress the button to take a picture there is a significant amount of time that passes before the picture actual is taken. 9 out of 10 times the "moment" is gone

You need to learn the "half-press" technique. You press the button half-way and wait for the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep)...then when the moment is right, press the rest of the way.

Delay of picture taking

This is normal behavior for most compact point&shoot cameras, especially one of such vintage. You can eliminate some (though not all) of the delay by pressing the shutter release button halfway to meter and focus, then press the button all the way at the peak moment.

Time betwween taking picture and actual shutter actuation to slow

Push the button half-way and allow the camera to focus before pressing the rest of the way. By pre-focussing, you can wait for just the right moment before pressing the rest of the way.

Pictures are coming out blurry

On digital cameras it is always best to press the button half way down before taking the picture. This helps the camera focus, thus preventing blurry images. Always, always press the button half way down. Secondly, if you are still getting blurry pictures, there is a possiblity that the sensor in your camera is bad. I don't know how old your camera is or how long you've had it, but you would need to send it for repair, exchange it, or if it's under warranty maybe they'll send you a new one.

How do I tranfer pictures from Kodak easyshare cx7300 built-in memory to a SD card?

Hi there, welcome to FixYa. I can explain that for you.

1) Put your card in the camera and format the card.
2) Go into the menu and set the camera's image storage location to the internal memory.

Then do this:
1) Press the Review button.
2) Press the Menu button.
3) Scroll up or down to highlight Copy.
4) Press the Ok button.
5) Press up or down to highlight an option
5) ALL to move everything (pictures & video) to the other location (the card). - Picture or Video to move the current item to the card if you just want to move one thing at a time.

By the way. This will only COPY the images or videos to a card. They will still be in the camera's internal memory. If you want to delete them you have to follow the Delete images procedure.

To Delete:
1) Press the Review button
2) Scroll Left or Right to find a picture.
3) Press Delete button
4) Scroll Up or Down to highlight an option.
The ALL option will delete everything.
5) Highlight Exit and Press the Ok button.

That will cover it. Thanks for coming to FixYa and feel free to rate my solution.

Camera will take picture, but the picture is coming out black!!!! Help Please!!!

Dear vera11:

The symptoms you're describing sound like a classic case of having a faiiled CCD image sensor.

First try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.

If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have a CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired.

Hope this helps.

Taking pictures

This could be due to a jammed lens element preventing the camera from focusing properly. When you push the button the camera attempts to focus the image before it takes the picture. If the focus component in the lens is not moving properly it cannot focus and thus will not take the picture. Do you see the camera attempt to focus the image when you press down the button? If it does not make any noises when you push the button, and the camera does not attempt to focus the image then it is most likely a jammed or malfunctioning focus motor. This would require professional repair.
