What may fix your button is a VERY tiny amount of WD-40 you might try placing a single drop with a swab or toothpick. The drop should be allowed to enter the camera. This amount of lubricant PROBABLY wont be detrimental, and it may fix the stuck button.

Why does my canon eos rebel t3 not take a picture when the shutter button is depressed but tje red eye reduction button keeps flashing and the video still works?


Usually, it means that the timer function has been turned on, and the camera is going through a countdown to trigger the shutter.

After that, it means that something else is not working correctly. If video works and records, then you know that the sensor and memory are functioning correctly. At that point, check to see whether your camera and lens are set for the form of autofocus or manual focus you want and that the aperture is still functioning correctly.

At some point, switch the camera to an all manual settings mode and try the shutter switch. If it still does not take a picture, the switch may have a problem.

The shutter button doesn't take a picture


you have to hold down your shooter button a little longer for image to be taken.it makes it look as if you are pressing the button twice. the first captures the image and the second takes the actual shot.QED.

D80 Shutter Release button will not depress at all.


What exposure mode(s)? What focus mode(s)? Can you (not your wife) take pictures?

I have a nikon d200, lately the shutter lags 1-2 seconds.


It is probably delaying while it autofocuses.  If it is like most Canon cameras, depressing the shutter half-way should allow you to focus without taking a picture, then when the moment is right, depress the shutter button fully to take the shot.  You will want to practice this a bit to get used to it.  Shooting in low-light it can take longer to find the focus, so it becomes more necessary to use this technique.
Hopefully that helps, but I am not a Nikon user.

Shutter speed is slow


When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

if it has changed it's possible you changed the mode to where it takes longer to focus.

for one, this camera has a "constant focus" function that will continuously monitor distance to target and keep the camera in focus, for fastest focusing, switch to this mode. also, are you pre-focusing your images?

Many novices don't know that you are supposed to 'prime' the camera by lightly pressing down the shutter and then when it lights green on the LED light and on the screen, you depress the shutter fully to take the picture. I experience fast picutures this way and I prefer not to even use constant-focus mode. give that a try.

if you don't 'prime' it, the camera basically doesnt know its about to take a picture, so when you hit the button it has to effectively say "OH CRAP picture time!", focus itself, and then snap the pic.

best of luck.

Shutter wont' release


Well either the relase switch has failed or another projection device has stalled it. Check through you menu of the back screen to be sure and then call Pentax technical support on thier web site.
