Question about Cameras

1 Answer

When i press the shutter button to take a photo the shutter goes up and the power goes down. i have to remove the battery (sometimes wait a few seconds) reinsert it and then the shutter closes. It does not take the picture obviously and when trying to view (pressing the play button) it tells me that it can not create a folder.

If your camera battery is having limited current factor, there is a possibility that the entire action is not happening with the available voltage/current. as multimeter test of voltage might indicate the voltage but the current factor will need a series test. hence I advice you replace the batery and test again. If the fault recurrs then the camera electronics is at fault, possible that the shutter mechansim is taking up power and stenching the cirrcuits to hang up. I feel the camera has to be open out to confirm the power hang.hope I could help.? Good day

I have a Nikon d3300 that turns off automatically after i take a photo - can you assist


If the screen display is shutting off, that's a normal function. If the camera is entirely shutting off it might be a bad battery or a very weak battery.

Tip

Blurry Photos


Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Regards

Sometimes, when we start the carmera and want to take a photo and press the button to take one, a small red light starts to shine. we didn't configure anything on the settings. this is really anoying


Sounds like a feature that comes on when using flash. The light comes on so in low light you can see and focus on what you are trying to photograph. Then we shutter button is depressed all the way the flash goes and picture is taken. Try turning off flash function.

Power button wont turn


Soft reset by removing the battery, wait 20 seconds and reinsert.

If this does not solve the problem...
1. Remove the battery, wait for a few seconds, then reinsert the battery to turn off your Merge.
2. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button, and then briefly press the POWER button.
3. Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the VOLUME DOWN button.
4. Press VOLUME DOWN to select FACTORY RESET, and then press the POWER button.

If none of this works, get a new phone, hopefully you have the insurance.

Canon Powershot A495 Wont power on using the ON/OFF button


The problem is short on playback button due to humidity (see differents between the buttons on foto no.1), wich can be removed mechanically using a pin and making two holes(inlet/outlet) at the side of the button where no wiring running(!) and with a hypo carefully shooting air beetween the foils. It is useful to lift up little bit the spring button from the bottom foil to remove the short. A hair dryer can be also helpful to dry out the space between the foils. Please check the fotos and link too.
The camera will not power on by battery insertion when short is over. To protect buttons against repeted defects I used an adhesive tape to close the openings on the top of the buttons.

How to release a stuck sutter on canon 400d


Wow, four days ago.

I would think that the camera has dropped the shutter by now.

There is a mode in the camera that holds the mirror up out of the way for sensor cleaning but this is defaulted as soon as the power is shut off and then turned back on again.

Or the camera was set in manual mode "Bulb" and is waiting for the next command from the photographer to "drop" the shutter "takes a second press of the shutter button.

The lens may be loose (unlocked) and giving a bad command to the camera.

The Canon 40D has a shutter capable of 60,000 actuation so if you are close to this I'd say the shutter has been shot out of it.

Also sometimes the shutter release button sticks and gives the feeling or appearance of a stuck shutter.

Shutter switch also known as a release button have been an issue sometimes where dirt and oil from a person hands get down into the button.

To release shut the camera off, take the battery out, remove and reinstall the lens, shift the taking mode to "P" program or full automatic green box.

My nikon d 70 freezes after taking 10-20 photos. sometimes if i turn it off and back on it will resume normal function.


Try this: While camera in "ON", remove the battery, wait approximately 30 seconds while pressing the shutter buttn, reinsert battery and turn "Off" then "ON". There is also a hardware reset button on camera bottom. With camera "On", press that button for about 2 seconds. (page 200 in user manual)

Sometimes there is a 6-10 second delay in the shutter also there are times the shutter wont work at all. What does r11 and r9 mean when depressing the shutter button half way down?


"R(x)" or "R(xx) is the estimated numbeer of shots left on your storage card. For the delay: with camera in the "ON" position, remove battery(ies), and while waiting approximately 30 seconds, continue holding the power button. REplace batteries and see if that helps. Also, if your model has a hardware reset button, give that a go.

Camera powers down when pressing shutter button


I see this frequently on the E900. Every time it has been a battery issue. If you're using rechargables (the E900 came with batteries and charger in the Canadian market......not sure about the rest of the planet), they may have just worn out over time. Replace with new NI-MH (nickel metal hydride) rechargeables. If you're using throw-away AA's, try Energizer Ultimate Lithiums. I've solved many, many E900 shutting off problems simply by changing the batteries to Energizer Lithiums.
