    My camera was dropped, and was reading "lens error, restart camera", so I kind of forced it clsoed and it restarted. I thought it was all fixed, but now when I push down the button to take a picture, the button will go down,but nothing happens.

We had the same problem with my daughters camera. I'm not sure if she dropped it or what happen but it quit taking pictures. We ordered a new cover for $30.00 from San Diego camera solutions. The new cover came and we replaced it. There are 8 small screws to remove the cover. When I removed the cover we had two pieces fall out. These pieces needed to be put back to make a circuit for the camera to take a picture. I would try to remove your cover and see if you have any lose pieces. Ours were right under the button you puch to take the picture. With a small tweezers we were able to put them back on. We then put on the new cover and the camers works great. I'm not sure if we actually needed a new cover or not -- Good Luck

I don't think this problem is fixable. Never force the lens closed, just restart it into both regular and playback mode.

When I click the button to take a picture the screen goes blank and doesn't come back on. Power light is still on.


Your shutter is stuck open. Remove the lens. Set to fireworks mode. May need to be in a dark room. When you press the shutter button tap the camera with an object that won't damage it. I used a rubber coated knife handle. Pull the battery and repeat. Tapping all around the camera. Hopefully it will break free. Then do some continuous shooting to loosen it up.

DOESN'T FEED,IT MIGHT MISS SHOOT A TIME OR TWO THEN GET A NAIL THEN NOT FEED.I'M SHOOTING A 1.5"TECO NAIL. ANOTHER GUN DOESN'T SHOOT EVERY TIME LIKE THE DEPRESSOR ISN'T LETTING THE...


Usually miss feed happens when the driver does not return to top position not allowing the nails to feed into position. Easy to check, point nose of nailer up then down again to see if the driver is loose in the cylinder. If loose, the driver will be in the down position when the side door is opened. If driver is down, replace driver oring. If driver oring is good, look for spring tension on feeder and check feeder spring on the door side. If piston oring good and feeders have good spring tension, suspect lower bumper cracked(remove head and piston to check bumper).
On gun with depressor (safty foot) not actuating trigger, look for worn trigger (trigger inner lever could be worn) or loose or worn firing pin in the trigger valve above the trigger(valve # tva6). Replace as needed. To check for proper gun action, remove the nails, remove the 3mm roll pin holding trigger and dry fire the gun by depressing the tigger pin. Good luck

The shutter button does not appear to click down and the lense does not open so no picture is taken. Usually it makes a sound and you know the picture has taken. HELP MEEE????


I had a similar problem with another brand of this type of camera. I would click the shutter and hear it open but it would not go through the series of four lens exposures unless I manually turned the film advance wheel . I think it may be because the motor isn't strong enough to draw the film across and trigger the shots. cheap plastic, ya know. I never got the film developed but im interested to see if it got anything at all.

My super sampler wont click after i take my firs shot??


Pull the string to advance the film. As long as your film sprocket holes are lined up with the sprockets in the camera, your shutters will fire the next time you press the shutter button.

Canon sure shot 90u


Take the battery out then push some buttons - the zoom buttons or the release button - til the LCD goes blank. This sometimes resets the circuit if there is really no problem. Then reinsert the battery and try again. If the H reappears, there is a problem with your zoom. It'll have to go to a repair shop.
