This all is happening because, your software has been corrupted. therefore re install the software........
Or in rare cases this happens due to "Click Button" has stuck inside the camera.....

Shutter-release button doesn't work


The manual only can give two reasons why the camera would not take pictures.
One, there is no memory card placed.
Two, the memory card is full.
You are sure you have placed a working empty memory card.
If you did save all the pictures on the memory card to a computer, try formatting the card in the camera.
When you are pressing the shutter release button half, does the camera say it is focused correct? light bottom corner of the display.
Your camera has a setting to take pictures with a remote control. Did you put the camera in that setting? Read page 76 of the manual.

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"

Shots are blurry


This issue can occur in the following circumstances:
The subject is too close to the camera lens Insufficient lighting Subject movement Camera movement Incorrect camera settings Incorrect camera operation Follow the steps below to help prevent taking pictures that appear blurry, out-of-focus or distorted.

If the camera has both an auto focus and manual focus mode, make sure it is set to auto focus. Make sure there is enough lighting to allow the camera to focus on the subject. Make sure the camera settings are set appropriately. When taking close-up or macro-type shots, ensure the subject is not closer than the minimum focus distance of the lens. Also, if the camera has a zoom option, set it to the W (wide-angle) position. If you have a fast-moving subject and the camera has a Program AE mode with a higher shutter speed (such as Sports action), make sure it is enabled. Also, if the camera has an ISO control, set it to a higher setting. If your camera has a SteadyShot/anti-blur function, ensure it is enabled. Aim the camera at the subject. Press the shutter button halfway down. NOTES:
Pressing the shutter button halfway down allows the camera to focus automatically. A flashing green indicator will be visible in the LCD or viewfinder. When the indicator stops flashing, focusing is finished and the camera is ready to take the picture. Some camera models have a Monitoring AF setting that can be selected which allows the camera to focus without the need to hold the button halfway down. Consult the instruction manual of the camera for information whether or not this is applicable for your model.

My camera turns on but it won't focus on automatic and when I press the button to take a picture it won't take one on manuel or automatic.


There may be a few things preventing the camera from taking a picture. I don't know the lens you are using but by chance does it have an auto/manual switch that has been switched to manual? Also make sure the lens is locked in position. The camera won't take a picture unless it has focus in the auto focus mode, this is normal. What are you trying to focus on? The camera auto focus system will search and fail to auto focus on surfaces that have little or nor contrast. For example glass, chrome, a blank wall, water, blue sky. Other conditions that auto focus fails is being to close to your subject, heavy fog, a dim lit subject, available light and night photography. Once the little green confirmation light comes on the camera has focus and will operate as it should.

The camera will not take a picture, the orange


This light flashes to show the camera is out of focus or you need to turn on Automatic flash in low lighting conditions.

The reason you must press the button half way is to engage auto focus. If you take pics by pressing once without doing this the picure is likely to be poor quality.

Keep practising the two push method with the button as it takes a while to get used to it. There is no way of changing this method other than ignoring it with subsequent poor results.

When in Camera mode I focus and then prepare to take the picture but the as soon as I press the switch to take the picture the LG routinely switches from Camera mode to the Video mode. Why? I cant see


Well, this is the intended function of the button unfortunately.

If you press and hold down the camera button, it toggles between camera and video.
However I'm sure you have noticed that on occasion, if you don't hold the button down long enough, no picture is taken.

It turns out to be something you just have to get used to. There is like a 2 second delay on the toggle so just don't hold it down that long. It is hard to get used to if you are used to a red eye removable flash or a slow camera button as found on many new cameras.

Here is a tip though, after you take the picture to quickly take another picture, you can fast save the photo by pressing the camera button again instead of messing with the touch screen.

I can't get my Pentax Z50P film camera to automatically focus.


Remove the lens and clean the contacts between the body and the lens with a pencil eraser. Make sure the camera is on Autofocus mode. If these don't solve the problem, take it to an authorized service center.

My automatic focus isnt letting me take pictures.


Check the rear optic on your lens. Then may be dust or debris preventing the focus to lock on your subject.

Better Focus


There are several factors that can contribute to getting better focus and improved results. 1. Auto Focus / Auto Exposure lock. Press the shutter button down HALF WAY. The camera will attempt to adjust exposure to the current lighting environment for maximum benefit. Then the camera will automatically correct the focus based on objects in the center of the display. This process usually takes about two to three seconds. 2. Be sure not to cover the sensor on the front of the camera with your finger. This will disable the automatic focus and exposure controls. 3. Only us the MACRO MODE for CLOSE-UP photography. Be sure to use MACRO MODE if you are taking pictures of an object at less than six inches away. Be sure not to use Macro Mode for Normal Photography. Using MACRO MODE improperly will result in poor focus (also known as 'fuzzy pictures').
