It is 1/60 mode change it...
1/60 mode means it will take a scene 1/60 of the seconds....
change the mode and then try... your problem will be solved...
change to normal mode...
there are many modes available in ur cam just like 1/80 etc & so it means it will take 1 photo for 60 seconds i think i dnt know exactly but by changing this mode to normal mode you problem will be solved...
by using this 1/60 mode v can clearly see in the photo the dirt and grit also.....

    Program
    AE

    Use the program AE mode to have the camera
    automatically set the shutter speed and aperture value to
    match the brightness of the scene.




    Shutter
    Speed-Priority AE







    When you set the shutter speed in the
    shutter speed-priority AE mode, the camera automatically
    selects an aperture setting to match the brightness.
    Faster shutter speeds allow you to catch an instantaneous
    image of a moving subject while slower speeds create
    a flowing effect and allow you to shoot without a flash
    in dark areas.




    Select
    a speed using
    or
    on the multicontroller.




    The aperture value and shutter speed
    change according to the zoom state as follows.











    Zoom State

    Aperture

    Shutter
    Speed (seconds)




    Wide
    Angle

    F2.8 - F3.5

    ~ 1/1000




    F4.0 - F8.0

    ~ 1/1500




    Telephoto

    F4.9 - F6.3

    ~ 1/1000




    F7.1 - F8.0

    ~ 1/1500






    The range of selectable shutter
    speed is from 15 to 1/1500 second.




    If the aperture value shows in red
    on the LCD monitor, the image is under-or overexposed
    (insufficient light). Adjust the shutter speed using
    the multicontroller until the aperture value display
    turns to white.




    This camera applies special processing
    to images shot at shutter speeds slower than 1.3 seconds
    to eliminate the noise.

    Aperture-Priority AE
    When you set the aperture in the aperture-priority AE mode, the camera automatically selects a shutter speed to match the brightness. Selecting a lower aperture value (opening the aperture) allows you to fade the background and create a beautiful portrait. A higher aperture value (closing it) brings the entire range from foreground to background into focus. The larger the aperture value, the greater the range of the image brought into clear focus.
    Select a value using or on the multicontroller.
    The aperture value and shutter speed change according to the zoom state as follows.
    Zoom State Aperture Shutter Speed (seconds)
    Wide Angle F2.8 - F3.5 ~ 1/1000
    F4.0 - F8.0 ~ 1/1500
    Telephoto F4.9 - F6.3 ~ 1/1000
    F7.1 - F8.0 ~ 1/1500
    If the shutter speed shows in red on the LCD monitor, the image is under-or overexposed (insufficient light). Adjust the aperture value using the multicontroller until the shutter speed display turns to white.
    In this mode, the shutter speed with synchronized flash is 1/60 second to 1/250 second.

My G9 will not save the time and date so it will not allow me past this screen to picture taking mode


There is a separate data/time cell(button cell) in cameras. Check if yours has one and get it replaced.
Mine goes past that screen when I press menu button(that acts like cancel button).

Time betwween taking picture and actual shutter actuation to slow


Push the button half-way and allow the camera to focus before pressing the rest of the way. By pre-focussing, you can wait for just the right moment before pressing the rest of the way.

CANON POWERSHOT S2 IS 5 MEGA PIXELS


I bought mine 2 1/2 yrs ago too. Found this solution on this site and tried it. It worked perfectly.
Turn to TV mode, set the exposure to 15 seconds by pushing the little "arrow dial" until you have 15"
Push the button to take the picture.
Wait 7 seconds from when you push the button, then turn over and open the battery door while it is "taking the picture."
Close the battery door and turn back on. 
I did this three times and the last time, it worked and the iris became unstuck.
Then I took a million pictures to get the iris moving.
Good luck!

LCD - Focus


DSLR camera was not made to be used as a point and shoot camera and you cant preview the shot before taking a picture. You are to use the eye piece to focus right. Also before taking a picture, push the exposure button just a little to let the camera focus right.

Self timer


There are two identical sized small buttons on the top. Push the one nearest the picture-taking button until it says self-timer. Push the picture-taking button. The display should show a countdown until the timer takes the picture.

Flash for Coolpix L6 Digital


You can try to reset all of the internal settings. This has worked for me with a digital camera.
It would be good here to know what kind of camera we are working with.

Make sure you do not have any of the settings in the camera set to turn off the flash...for instance setting it at mountains or most any outside setting may not allow the flash to work. Some cameras will allow you to override the setting internally.
If the flash does not work at all, then repairs will be needed.
