The hand is telling you that the camera thinks it's being shaken. Has to do with slow shutter speeds. Does the AF lamp flash also?

Our 4600 does it also. It seems that the shutter release button might be broken as it does not appear to feel like it has both the focus position AND shoot position now. The processor is probably confused because of this.time for a new camera... probably not a Nikon CoolPix though.

I turn my dmc-fh27 camera and the lens won't come out. it is trying to move but it will not budge and the screen says "System Error (Zoom)".


Warning: This is only a last resort if you no longer have a warranty.

I used a variety of different methods, but here's what worked for my camera. Apparently the lens was just off the track.

1. Turn on the camera, and smack the back against the palm of your hand to get the lens to come out.
2.Hold the lens out until the "error screen" comes up.
3. Take the camera with the lens facing towards you, and use your thumbs to push on the lens.
4. Push firmly until the lens "clicks".
5. Turn off camera, then on again.
6. Hopefully cry tears of joy that you fixed it.

When i turn the camera on the lens wont come all the way out and the screen does not come on


Possible error in the processor on the main board within the camera. remove the battery, memory card and tap to see if there is any dirt or sand within the camera. Now reset the battery and switch on as you tap the camera with the lens hood on your palm. if this wont reset the camera needs to be opened up to check within for failure of circuit or a possible mechanical jamming of the lens drive.

When i turn the camera on ACCESS comes on the screen and then it


OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!

Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.

Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

S800 lens won't close, can't take photos


The lens was bent to one side, so bump with my palm to straighten it back. I was able to start using my Samsung again.

THE LCD DISPLAY IS BLANK


I had an older nikon and it gave me that same problem, I was told that it was the internal lenses getting stuck. If that is what your problem is, then take the camera while it is off and slam it against the palm of your hand, I know it sounds pretty weird, and I was nervous to try it, but after a couple of hard hits to the hand, it turned on and stayed on perfectly.
