Self-Timer not working

The self timer in my Z120 is not working. When I set it to 10 seconds or 2 seconds self timer, once I press the shuuter, the lens would retrieve and shut down the camera.

Also, the power button of the camera is not working. I have been using the play/rec buttons to turn on and off. Not sure if this is related.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks.

Hi there,

I know it was a while ago now but I just found your post, the lens on mine broke yesterday but being a student I'm looking for someone with a broken identical camera with spare parts to fix it rather than buying a new one. Did you fix the camera, if not and it is lying around unused I would be very grateful if you would part with it so I can get mine working again. I am looking for a working lens

Please contact me at samutacaratti@gmail.com

Kind Regards....

My Sony digital still camera F707 works very quick self timer (cca.2 sec.) May I readjust for original 10 seconds? Thanx for help!


Hi,
There is no setting to change self timer, default time is 10 seconds. However you can reset camera to restore default settings by pressing reset button located under battery compartment, try it as it might correct self timer problem.
Thanks.

I have sony DSC-S500 digital camera i want to know how to take a photograph using self timer thank you Regards Sailaja


Hi,


For capturing the images using Self Timer, press the Down Arrow control button continuously to select the desired mode. You can set the timer for 10 seconds and 2 seconds by pressing the continuously, If we press the button again the Self Timer will be turned off.

Press the Shutter button, the self-timer lamp flashes and a beep sounds until the shutter operates. To cancel the self-timer, press the down arrow button again. You can redice the risk of blur by using the 2-second delay self-timer.


Good Luck!

Does camera have timer


Putting Yourself in the Picture The Self Timer creates a 10-second delay between the time you press the Shutter button and the time the picture is taken. 1 Place the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod. 2 In any Still mode, press the Self Timer button. The Self Timer icon appears in the status area. 3 Compose the scene. Then press the Shutter button half-way and hold to set the exposure and focus, then press the rest of the way down. Move so that you are in the scene. The Self Timer light blinks slowly for 8 seconds (then quickly for 2 seconds) before the picture is taken. The camera "clicks" when the picture is captured. To turn off the shutter sound, see page 64. The Self Timer turns off after you take the picture or if you change modes. To cancel the Self Timer before the picture is taken, press the Self Timer button. (The Self Timer setting remains active.) To turn off the Self Timer, press the Self Timer button twice.

I wanna take a picture but i dont know how to make the camara wait 10 sec before it takes the picture


Hi,

Self-timer shooting:

This function lets you take pictures using the self-timer.
Fix the camera securely on a tripod for self-timer shooting. This function is useful for taking
pictures when you want to be included in the photograph.

1 Select [ON], and press Z.
2 Press the shutter button fully to
take the picture.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway
locks the focus and exposure.
• The self-timer lamp lights for
approximately 10 seconds, then starts
blinking. After blinking for approximately
2 seconds, the picture is taken.
• To stop shooting while in n mode,
press the shutter button fully again.
• To cancel the self-timer, press Z.
• The self-timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.

Note:
• If sequential shooting is attempted in self-timer mode, the camera shoots 5
frames at most regardless of the setting.


Hope my info fixes your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
cheers.

How to use selftimer on Samsung S630


Hey hpnotiq_babe,
Directions on how to set the self timer on this camera are on page 27 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I have copied the instructions on how to set the self timer on your camera below. I hope this helps!

1. Rotate the MODE DIAL to select a RECORDING
mode with the exception of VOICE RECORDING
mode.
2. Press the SELF-TIMER button until the desired
mode indicator displays on the LCD monitor.
A 10 second, 2 second or double self-timer icon
appears on the LCD monitor. In Movie Clip mode,
only the 10-second self-timer will work.
•2SEC self-timer ( )
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an
interval of 2 seconds before the image is
taken.
•10SEC self-timer ( )
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an
interval of 10 seconds before the image is taken.
•Double self-timer ( )
: A picture will be taken after about 10 seconds and 2 seconds later a
second picture will be taken. When using the flash, the 2-second self-timer
may be delayed for longer than 2 seconds depending on the flash charge
time.
3. When you press the SHUTTER button, the picture will be taken after the
specified time has elapsed.

Delay timer


You can download the manuals for the PowerShot SD600 here.

To use the self timer feature, you need to set it up in the menu first.

1. Press the Menu button. If not in the shooting menu (silhouette of a camera), use the left or right arrow to get there.
2. Use the down arrow to select Self Timer.
3. Use the right arrow to select the clockface with a 2 or a 10 (2 second or 10 second delay).
4. Press the Func./Set button.
5. Press the Menu button to exit.

Once set up, you can activate it by pressing on the down arrow. You should see an icon change from a rectangle to a clockface at the top center of the LCD when the self timer mode is selected. Press the down button again to cancel the self timer mode.

Press 'up arrow' or 'down arrow' to get to the 'Self Timer' option which looks like moz-screenshot.jpga clock set at 10 minutes to 10.
Press the OK button.
Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
(This setting will stay until you take a picture or turn the mode dial).

Good Luck

Self Timer Activation


The instruction manual is quite poor. Once you have decided which option you would like (2 or 10 seconds) you must go back to the main menu to select which drive mode you would like. Single is default. From single, you can select self-timer, which will activate it for your next shot. The drive mode will always reset back to single after every shot so you'll need to set this up for every self-timed shot.

Happy shooting!
