Charly. Does this happen also when you put it in automatic? (P) and there is enough light?
On my D7000, the dials can turn by only touching. and sometimes my camera won't work as I expect. The shutter stays closed, because there is not enough light. Careful check all the settings. I also was in a little panic once, because my shutter did not click. little later I found it was still in the setting for use of wireless remote control.

SOURCE: No picture is taken when shutter release button is pressed

Are those NiMH batteries? Have you tried resetting the camera? If no standard way, just take out batteries for a few minutes, the more the merrier, let the tension build, and replace them. Try tapping on the lens area, it might loose something up. Best I can do, know it aint much ;] Good luck!

There may be something wrong with the camera. Make sure it is set to Single Exposure setting and not Multiples. There should be a control on the top left to change this. Look for an "S". this is what you want. If that doesnt help, you may need to get it repaired.

SOURCE: fuji s1 pro problems

I cannot solve the problem, but will say that in searching for a solution to my problem, I read in the manual that if you are not going to use the camera for a while, to take the batteries out. This is probably why you now have a malfunction. I sympathise - only now do I know this myself, having not referred to the manual very much in the past eight busy years. Sorry for your loss.

SOURCE: My Nikon D1x keeps showing

C-rem indicates "remaining pictures remain in the buffer, in C for continuous mode". I quoted from this web blog:
http://photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00JiDb
From what I gather, it's supposed to only show when the shutter button is halfway depressed, so I'm inclined to think you have a shutter button sticking, or some crazy thing like that. Here's a similar problem as answered on Nikon's support site:
http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11928/related/1/session/L2F2LzEvc2lkL3kqVEFEdzhr/~/c-rem-display-on-d1
It could just be some tricky menu setting messing you up. I would run the camera by a reputable repair shop, just to see if they can reset it, etc.
Good luck to you, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

Where is the aperture ring on d80 Nikon


If you are using an older lens the aperture ring will be close to the camera body when the lens is on the camera. In order to set the aperture with a D80 and older lens you must set the aperture ring to "22" or the highest number on the aperture ring available. For newer lenses there is no aperture ring. You set the aperture by setting the dial on the top left of the D80 to "A" for Aperture Priority. You then set the aperture by rotating the front dial on the right side of the camera under the shutter release button. On older lenses, after setting the aperture ring to the highest number, you then set the aperture in the same manner.

Error message nikon d60 release not working


I assume that the full message is "Shutter release is disabled." The causes can be as follows:
1. The memory card is not fully inserted, or locked in place; or the write protect tab on the left edge of the memory card is in the protected position. A full memory card could also cause this problem.
2. You are using an automatic lens equipped with a focusing ring and you have failed to lock the aperture at the highest f-number by sliding the locking tab on the lens.
3. You are using a non-CPU lens, in which case you must rotate the mode dial to "M" and manually set your ISO, shutter speed and f-stop.
4. Your flash is not fully charged.

Nikon D90: Won't focus properly in automatic mode


Make sure the subject is well lit. The autofocus relies on differences in contrast to determine proper focus. Move to a well lit area or add additional light and attempt again.

Make sure the aperture ring on the lens (if that lens has one on it) is set to minimum (highest number - f22 etc.) This value it often a different color ink than the others to help speed locating it. On most Nikon & compatible lenses, when the aperture is set to minimum, the camera's main & sub command (thumb and finger) dials will control the aperture and shutter speed. When the shutter is held down 1/2 way, the aperture will open fully (to allow the most light in and speed composition) and then automatically stop down to the commanded value when fully depressed for the exposure. If you have the aperture set on the lens to something different - it may be preventing sufficent light from entering and interfere with the autofocus function.

Good luck!

Lower the fflash power setting if posible,\. Then you will have to open the aperture more or use a slower shutter speed. This is true wether using the camera built in flash or an external flash. Even with freshly charged batteries, the capacitor that releases the charge to the flash tube will lose all charge and have to be recharged. Lowering the output releases mless charge from that capacitor. Like drinking from a glass, smaller gulps=more drinking time.

Instruction manual for settings on a Nikon F2?


Set the film speed with the dial on top of the Photomic unit. Lift the chrome ring and turn so that the film speed is next to the little red arrow.
Yes, the aperture is set by the lens ring. And if you have one of the older finders which uses the prong meter connection, whenever you mount a lens you must turn the aperture ring all the way to the highest number, then back to the lowest number. For old-timers, this is known as the "Nikon twist". It tells the meter system what the widest aperture of the lens is so that it can measure light properly at full aperture.
Yes, the shutter speed is set by the dial on top. The Photomic meter sits on top of it, so you read the shutter speed from the scale on the side of the Photomic dial by the mark on the back.
The other buttons on the front are the lens release button (left side as you hold the camera), DOF preview (button just under shutter release), mirror lock-up (lever ring around DOF button) and self-timer (long lever at bottom).
The T-L ring serves to protect the shutter release from accidental push. If you lift the ring and turn the mark to L, the shutter release is Locked. If you lift and turn to T, it prepares the shutter for Time operation, where the shutter remains open when released without holding the button down as you do at the B speed setting.

Finally, the most help: you can download the manual for free (donation requested, and worth it) at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon/nikon_f2_photomic/nikon_f2_photomic.htm

NIKON D1X won't take pictures


arceye 10 is right. Once the lens is attached to the camera body, make sure that the aperture ring is turned all the way up to the largest number (usually 22). To do this, hold the camera with the lens pointing away from you, and turn the aperture ring clockwise.

Our Nikon d1x won't take a picture. It gives me an FEE type of error and the battery flashes.


The blinking FEE message means the aperture ring is not set to minimum aperture (highest number). Turn the aperture ring to the highest number, and then find the aperture lock -- either a little slider or a button you press and turn. That will keep it from accidentally changing again.
