Camera locks up

My camera freezes completely with the yellow lines on right side of viewfinder flashing.  I change settings and nothing happens.  I waited and turned it back on in a few hours and it was fine.  This has happened three times.  I can't count on it to work.  What am I doing wrong?

Re: camera locks up

The above links are not connected to the above problem(s). I contacted sony because I'm having the same issue and they said it is unrelated to the black screen locking up thing that the links take you to. I'm being told it's an auto focus problem. I'm out of warranty (of course) and sony can't/won't help without big bucks!

Re: camera locks up

This is a known design defect in the cameras and Sony is repairing them, even if your warranty is expired.

I have a Nikon D40 and when it's in M and S mode the shutter stays open for too long and my pictures come out completely white.

What shutter speed(s) are you using? What happens when you use a faster shutter speed? In the S and M modes you are responsible for setting the shutter speed, and you can set it to anything within the camera's range.

My canon EOS 400 D will not take a photograph. I have selected 'full auto' and when i press the shutter button the speed and f number are displayed in the viewfinder together with the number 9 at the right...

The flashing green dot is telling you that your settings aren't right for the conditions. You have to bring in the settings within range. As long as the dot flashes, nothing is set right. Put camera on auto mode. Then take a photo. look at what the camera set the f stop, iso, etc. That will help you learn to set manual settings in the right direction. I have a 30 d and it will do same thing if setting in the manual settings are not right.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area...

Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.

The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This may not necessarily be an error.. just a setting that you have put in place in your menu.

Sony DSC-V1 optical viewfinder has a horizontal line in it

It shouldn't be there, but as the optical viewfinder is completely separate from the photographic light path it's nothing to worry about either.

Normally it's caused by either a hair or fibre which has somehow entered the viewfinder (rare) or more commonly by a fine scratch across the front window to the viewfinder. Also check the rear viewfinder viewing lens as the same damage could occur there but as that lens is relatively protected it's unlikely.

Any further fixing involves dismantling the DSC-V1 and possibly sourcing spares made of purest unobtanium so if the camera works perfectly well then leave the screwdrivers safely in the toolbox for now.

Fuji s5000

Above the screen display on the back of the camera are two small buttons. The left one is blue and the right one is marked EVF/LCD.

Push the right side button to change from the viewfinder to the screen.

Lights!Camera! No Action!

do you have a memory card installed?
is this camera new?
not seeing in the viewfinder is not a good sign.
if its a slr, the mirror is locked up, either by function or failure.
need to know if its a slr or small format point and shoot to offer further advice.

Camera Turns off and flashes light soon after turning on then freezes

I have exactly the same problem and I found, that it is probably related to rechargable batteries. If I use normal batteries, everything works fine. Confusing is, that I used to use rechargable ones all the time, but errors started few days ago. I also have two sets of rechargable batteries, but both are useless now. Maybe that camera is getting old and it needs fresh 4x1,5V from normal batteries instead of 4x1,2V from rechargable ones.

Konica Minolta Dimage S414

I have exactly the same problem, I'm guessing that the flash capacitor has died. I'm using the camera for outdoor work only at the moment, when I get desperate I might try taking the top off to see if I can find the capacitor.
