Camera will not take pictures

My camera suddenly stopped taking pictures. I can zoom in and out and all the other buttons work. I downloaded the pictures to my computer and deleted them from the camera.
I removed the memory card - still will not work.

    My daughter is having the same problem with her camera.

    All features seem to operate normally... but, the camera just will not take a picture. Depressing the shutter release button has absolutely no effect... the camera will not auto focus, and the shutter will not not release.

Blurry picture if zoom is used ( no Sharp mage)


I'm out of practice because my camera suddenly stopped working 6 months ago, but I don't recall having a problem with blurry pictures when I used the zoom. Sometimes, it takes a few seconds for a pic to come into clear focus. I think the trick is to just keep working with it.

For several years my C-3020 zoom camera has worked fine. Suddenly, now when I take a picture, the picture leaves when I snap the shutter. Always before the picture remained on the screen so I could see if...


In the camera menu, there should be a setting for "review" to allow you to set the number of seconds the picture remains on the screen. Also, you can always review the pictures you've taken by pressing the review button on the camera...it's usually a button with an arrow that points to the right.

Digital Zoom not working and screen is blurry


Your zoom probably does not come out all the way and therefore you get some blurry shots. Had the same problem on a Panasonic camera. Solution: replace zoom motor and gears. Results=expensive. Goes beyond the value of the camera. You might want to buy another used A85 or newer digital camera.

Sony DSC-P3 Zoom stopped working


i had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps
it worked on my camera

Camera not taking pictures


Sounds like you might have a lens error developing. Look for error messages on the screen. A clue is abnormal performance by the lens in tracking and zooming in and out.

When using the zoom button the cam stops working


This suggests the zoom motor has failed. As you only purchased it 2 weeks ago - it should be replaced under warranty
