    My samsung 860 camera's shutter does not close

  • sunshine2016 May 19, 2009

    I have a samsung s860 and the original battieries died so i went and bought Ninm batteries(which by the way the camera should come with) anyways after replacing the batteries i found that the lens would not close and it would not focas. It was like there was something on the lens. I have only had this camera for about 2 months and i'm already having problems with it. I disliked it when i got it (it was a gift) and i loath it even more now.

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.

When I try to take a picture you hear a clicking noise and the flash is working but it will not take a picture


You may be too close to your subject and the autofocus is not locking in. back up a few inches and the shutter should go off. Try turning off auto-focus.
If this isn't the case it could be a shutter problem. Turn off the flash (if you don't you'll get blinded during my next step) look inside the barrel of the lens and click the shutter...you should see a little flicker inside the lens as you hit the shutter button. If you do see it, then it is in fact just the shutter...if not it's the camera itself. Be sure you are holding the shutter button down completely...as halfway only allows you o focus.

Lens unable to auto focus


try cleaning the lens.

Also set the focus range in the camera to average both vertically and horizontally. That is when you press the shutter button thos red squares in the look through a;; ;light up rather than just the centre square.

I suspect it is getting feedback from something on the lens that it reads and tries to focus on that is closer than the object you want to photograph. Make sure there is no mold growth inside lens as that will do it too

Please turn camera off and then on again. it


Had the same issue with my DMC-FZ50 for a couple weeks, and tried turning it onn and off countless times. I could hear something happening inside the lens on start-up and surmised the internal shutter was trying to open but wasn't able to. I guessed that the turn off/turn on idea was to resend the command impulse to open the shutter. So.... I t urned it on while repeatedly hitting the side of the lens firmly with the palm of my hand and.....it worked!!!!

Shutter speed very slow and has trouble focusing. When I press the the shutter button it takes several seconds before it takes a picture if at all. It seems as though it is having trouble focusing and when...


There is a diaphragm between the shutter button and the shutter switch that causes the camera to focus before the shutter is pressed all the way down. It is likely that the diaphragm is punctured and needs to be replaced. There is also a small possibility that the hidden secondary battery inside the camera is going bad.

Sony DSC H-5 Camera slow response time


There is a diaphram between the shutter button and the shutter that does the focus. Pushing the button half way down pre-focuses and then the picture is instantanious. If the diaphram is broken it take a while before the shutter takes the picture. One of the AA batteries may be defective so try another set and see if that is better. There is also a slight possibility that the secondary battery (hidden within the camera) has gone bad.

Look on the left side of the lens. Make sure the button is on A for auto focus and not M for manual. OR not stuck in the middle. Hopefully that will solve the problem.
