When I turn power on on my S500, I hear clicking sounds and it appears that shutter is releasing itself quickly. I am unable to use zoom and when I take pictures, I see horizontal lines.

Stuck shutter D100 Nikon


The R06 is the buffer indication, not part of the error. It would appear more work is required. Other components may have failed, or the shutter itself may be bad.

I'm afraid this one is not a DIY. Nikon is pricey on repairs, you may fair better checking the repair service search here on Fixya.

Samsung S500 beeps and turns off when i hit shutter


Hi,
If the Olympus is using the exact same batteries as the Canon, there is a high chance that the problem is with the batteries.

Frozen lens and shutter


Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

Error-C1


Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).

Auto Mode In this mode, all you have to do is press the shutter button and let the camera do everything else. 1. Turn the camera on.
2. Turn the shooting mode dial to normal_mode.gif.

4. Use the zoom lever to achieve the desired composition (relative subject size in the viewfinder).

  • The angle of view can be adjusted within the 45 to 100 mm range, in 35mm film equivalent.
  • When the LCD monitor is on, the combined use of the digital zoom and optical zoom enables magnified shooting up to approx. 7x.
5. Press the shutter button halfway.

  • Two beeps will sound when the camera has finished metering, and the indicator will light green or orange. If the LCD monitor is on, the AF frame will appear green.
  • The yellow indicator will blink and the beep will sound one time if the subject is difficult to focus on.

Zoom error


I had the same problem with mine and I tried several suggestions, BUT the only one that has worked is to gently grab the lens, pull it out as far as it will go until fully extended. While keeping it extended turn the lens to the right until you hear a click. Once you hear the click, release the lens and turn the power button on and then back off again. This should take care of the problem. A word of warning. ALWAYS make sure your fingers do not touch the front of the lens when you power on the camera. Even the slightest bit of obstruction seems to make the problem reoccur. Another note. I had tried this several times until I finally heard the click, so please don't give up on it, just keep trying. This will work and it will save you a lot of time and money having it fixed.
