Do you really mean won't take a picture, or are the pictures that it's taking black like the LCD screen? Download some of the pictures to your computer and check. If the camera's taking black pictures, see the following two links:

The following will help to get the best possible pictures from your Fujifilm FinePix JX250:

TO CHANGE FILE SIZE:
  1. Press MENU/OK to display the shooting menu.

  4. Press DISP/BACK to exit from the menu.
TO CHANGE QUALITY:
  1. Press MENU/OK to display the shooting menu.
  2. Press the Selector UP or DOWN to highlight the option IMAGE QUALITY and press the selector RIGHT to change IMAGE QUALITY to FINE (Less compression than NORMAL, meaning better picture quality).

  4. Press DISP/BACK to exit from the menu.
NOTE: The focus range of the JX250 goes from 1.5 ft. - Infinity (Wide Angle), 2.6 ft. - Infinity (Telephoto), also make sure to clean the lens and adjust the focus before taking the photos. If the subject is close to the camera, select Macro mode. If the subject is far away from the camera, cancel Macro mode.

All of a sudden every picture I take with the 55-200 zoom lens is blurry and slightly out of focus. Pictures with the 18-55 lens are still sharp. I have been using that 55-200 lens for years for sports...


Simplest answer is that you may have accidentally flipped the focus switch (A/M) on the lens to M. This turns off autofocus for that lens (which you might need to do if autofocus just can't resolve the image). Try turning it back to A.

Another possibility is that you're using an autofocus target different from the one you're expecting. The problem would be apparent regardless of lens choice, by being in focus in a different part of the image. You can press the arrow keys (while holding shutter release down halfway) to change AF targets, or change a menu setting to simply choose the closest target.

The shooting modes have no effect on focusing ability.

The camera would likely detect other focus-related problems (like servo failure).

You don't. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century. Only more recent dSLRs (Nikon started with the D3 and D300) have the LiveView capability that lets you handle your dSLR as a point&shoot.

Hello,
Although not fully familiar with your unit, many receivers have a small lamp behind the display panel. Sometimes they burn. It is not to easy to replace them bya DIY. If the unit works fine otherwise, it could be just that. lots of other units use Fluorescent type displays, and if they go bad, causes are more complex.
Good luck.

Lens problem


you should have dropped your cam down to the floor or you should have forcibly tried to put your lens inside when the servomotor lens tried to bring the lens out..take your camera to the nearest service centre..you should not try to open the cam since the parts used in it are very small and even a slight modification might be responsible for huge change in the calibration.so my best advice is to take it to the nearest service centre available..

My nikon d60 is starting to take forever to show the picture after taking the photo, and now all the sudden is shows a black box with shooting details on it, i can't get that off!


In your manual you will find how to change the display format (picture only, histogram, etc.). The time it's taking to display your image "might" be that your memory card is getting quite full and you're shooting large images. I shoot a D80 and it uses an SD card. Make sure you but a fast memory card if your camera does not buffer the inage before writing it to your memory card.

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
