With Olympus Stylus 1010 .... how do I 'pause' a video instead of constantly turning it 'on and off'? Thanks


Press the shutter release button, to start the video. (mode dial is on the video camera) Press the shutter release button again, to stop the video. When you press again, the recording starts again.
So that is like pause, because the camera is in standby waiting for the next recording.

FILM ADVANCE/SHUTTER STUCK


Start simple and go from there.

I don't know if you have film in the camera so I'll read the following and choose what works for you.

I will assume the battery is working if applicable.

As stupid as this sounds press the shutter release button. If the shutter is cocked it will hold the advance. I've had people come in with this problem.

Not it?

If the film rewind has been pressed in it will disengage the film advance and stop the shutter mechanism as a result. Open the camera and close the back again resets the release.

If there is film in the camera remove it.

It there are important photos on the film and your rewind is not working use a coat to make a light proof black box. Just turn the sleeves inside out and put the camera in the coat. Wrap it so as it is closed to light. Open the camera remove the film and roll the film back in by hand.

OK so now we have a camera open with no film in it.

Open the back and look just below the shutter. On one side will be a very small "lever". This tells the camera that the film has been advanced and the shutter is cocked. Gently move the lever to the right. It should click. Now try pressing the shutter release.
Note that without film in the camera some cameras will not advance the shutter.

It should clear the problem.

If not something physical in jamming.

The film advance system could be jamming. On the side the film advance is on there will be a plastic "gear" inside the camera. Try moving by hand it should turn. You can reset the shutter this way.

Give this a try.

Hope this is helpful, if it gives you some direction please rate this answer.

Thanks

Its shutter is not opening


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.

Same thing


More Info please, it will usually go to standby if camera turned off or after the meter shuts down after a predetermined time (nikon default setting in camera is usually 6 secs.).
So if you switch camera back on or push shutter release to wake up metering system flash should automatically come out of standby.
Or you can push the on / off button for approx 1 / 2 secs. this will wake it up , then turn it off. Hope this may help Ian

Shows STBY


STBY means 'Standby'. This is to conserve the batteries. It will come out of standby mode as soon as you press the shutter release button halfway down.

Shutter issue


I experienced the same problem and took the camera in for repair - I was told the problem was with the motor on the zoom drive which had to be replaced. The shutter cover has worked fine ever since. Repair cost was about $150
