I have just purchased a 500mm mirror lens but when attached to the camera I get the message 'no lens attached shutter is locked' any suggestions please


The lens lacks the electronic circuitry to interface with the camera. You'll need to use the camera in M(anual) exposure mode.

I have trouble with my Sony A300 firing when the shutter is pressed. I have to keep trying & trying til it finally goes. It has done this since I got it. What can I do? I miss many moments do to that


Do you press the shutter button half-way and allow the focus to lock in (it will beep) before you press the rest of the way? If you don't and the focus isn't locked, the shutter will not fire.

Image of pictures has lines on it? help


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

However, if movement IS seen, then you may be experiencing CCD sensor failure.

Pictures are very over exposed with many white horizontal lines through them. Solution?


Hi!
The lens shutter cable is broken or the shutter blades are stuck - happens when lens get wet or something adhesive gets in the lens. It's a hardware problem so I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. I must warn you that it is considered a complicated repair, so it could be expensive.

Hope this helps!
