Shutter-release button doesn't work


The manual only can give two reasons why the camera would not take pictures.
One, there is no memory card placed.
Two, the memory card is full.
You are sure you have placed a working empty memory card.
If you did save all the pictures on the memory card to a computer, try formatting the card in the camera.
When you are pressing the shutter release button half, does the camera say it is focused correct? light bottom corner of the display.
Your camera has a setting to take pictures with a remote control. Did you put the camera in that setting? Read page 76 of the manual.

The bottom third of the picture is black


check to see that mirror goes all the way up

check to make sure secondary mirror attached to bottom of main mirror goes all the way up when mirror goes up

check to make sure a shutter blade is out of place or broken

for all of these set the camera on manual and bulb, and set it to fire without a card, and then take off the lens and look in the mirror box when firing

I have a Minolta XG-A camera, and i can take a picture but the shutter is stuck?


My shutter does that when there is low light, or just slow shutter speed. You could try changing those settings, otherwise, last time mine got stuck, I loosened a screw on the bottom right under the shutter release button and the shutter just snapped back into its place.

I cannot take a picture when there sunlight,it started when i took a picture of burning house is the affected my camera


No, the burning house unlikely cause the problem. The A470 is particularly subject to something called a "stuck shutter". 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, sometimes with lines, 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. Now recommend proceeding directly to Fix 5A listed in the article. If that doesn't help, your camera may have a more serious problem of a broken ribbon cable to the shutter. This seems to be very common for the A4XX series cameras from Canon. Here's some info on the problem.

Black strip across the top of the picture


I can tell you exactly what is happening. This is probably either happening when you are taking a photo with a flash? The maximum flash sync your camera has is 1/125 or 1/60 of a second. If you set your shutter speed faster than that, you shutter closes too slow and creates that black strip. Put the shutter speed to 1/60 or slower and see if that happens. If you have a long lens on the camera, you have to have the shutter speed either equal or less than the focal length to shutter. 50mm lens=1/50 a second without a flash. Otherwise you could have a bent or broken shutter curtain blade. Maybe someone stuck their finger in there.

Image Problems


Either your shutter, or the sub-mirror assembly is broken. Purchase a faulty/broken 350D from ebay and use the working parts from your camera on the broken one (i.e., get one with a shot mainboard). For disassembling follow this guide:

Good luck.

Half picture shows up and top portion is black


The camera firmware should be reloaded, if this fails then the camera is likely beyond end user servicing and should be repaired by a professional.

The reason your only seeing bottom half is as the reflex mirror is opening upwards to expose the sensor ( traditional cameras opened the mirror then a shutter to expose film ) your cameras sensor is only registering or transferring the bottom half of the image because it is the image is registered bottom first to the top until the shutter closes and the mirror returns to resting position.

Your problem could be the result of firmware or a more serious issue.

Nikon d40x shutter problem


May be a weak subject to focus or the flash is not ready when you press the button.

Set the camera to auto(green) mode.Try it with a contrast bright subject for as many time as possible.
If the problem persists turn off the camera and reset the camera using the button near usb connection.

Then go to seller for replacement.

Broken shutter


The C-50 camera is notorious for the broken door and/or broken track. It was fixed on the C-60 model.
There are a few shops on eBay that sell the front door, its a very easy replacement, just two screws and a guide plate on the bottom that you install and assuming your track is still operational, you'll beable to use your camera.
