I found a notice put out by Nikon, there is a mechanical problem with the Auto focus. U can google it and there is a form to download and print to send in with your camera. The service is free to fix it since it is a manufacturer's defect.

My camera will begin to turn on but the flash settings won'


is it the auto film load feature on this camera doing this ??? it maybe the type of film u use , most auto loads are not to forgiving on the different types of film , I had this problem as I still use a film camera a lot for infrared photos (digitals too expensive ) and have found that its real picky on whos film I use to weather it works or not , as on some brands of film it just goes on and on and never stops , the only way I can save it from being ruined is to tell it to rewind , it then sucks all the film back into holder and I try it again ,sometimes works sometimes no

Shutter won't open


With a digital camera, some things go different as we were used to with the film camera. The autofocus function, will try to prevent you from taking a picture when not focused.
With a digital camera, every picture should be ok. Than means, as soon as the camera "thinks" not enough light or not in focus, it won't release the shutter. Even when not in automatic, the camera wants to make sure it is in focus and has enough light. So try again when you have enough light. Then press the shutter release button half, till the camera is ready focusing and then press complete. If the camera still strikes perhaps it needs a repair centre?
Make sure you did place the camera in automatic, to exclude other possibilities that can cause "out of focus" or "wrong light"

I was trying to take pictures in a cave that had some light but not a lot. The flash will pop up and the light bursts, but it will not take a picture. It just keeps focusing in and out and it won't...


It's probably too dark and the flash isn't powerful enough to assist the focus mechanism on far away objects (more than 10-15 feet).

If you will need to switch to manual focus and maybe manual exposure.

HI-- I have just purchased an old Olympus Trip MD 35mm automatic camera, with in built flash. I think have correctly loaded the fillm and batteries, but it won't turn on...It won't take pictures...


Make sure that the batteries are good. If it does not work with known good batteries then you certainly have an issue with the camera electronics. Test to see if the on/off switch is any good.

How to focus? all my picture not clear?


You have to hold the cam still... if the shutter speed is less than 60 and it doesn't flash you need a tripod. The cam is a focus free and the lens does it all. iF YOU DON'T USE THE FLASH just take pictures in a bright area or keep the film speed setting at 200 and 400 is better to stop the shakes and keep the resolution at 1024/768 that helps too...

Camera wont accept any film?


1.The film leader should be placed correctly.
2. the ASA detecting pins in the film champers should be clean.
3. Check for any buttons being in pressed conditions.
4.See whether the frame counter resets when opening the door
5.Then try with a mechanic.
