Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I was taking pictures, but paused for a moment to find a better angle. I guess I got distracted for a few minutes. I went back to the camera to see that the screen was black. I thought it had turned itself off, but the lens was still out. I didn't pay much attention to it and went to turn it on. However it won't turn on and the lens is still out. I've put it on charge just now to see if that will help but I was wondering if this happened to anyone else, or just me?

Hi. Yes, that happened to me once. Battery went dead and doesn't have enough power left to retract the lens. Camera worked fine after I put in charged battery. I hope this is your case too.

I can put new batteries in, turn the camera on & take pictures for a few minutes, turn the camera off, when I try to turn it back on the batteries are dead.


Greta, If they are cheaper batteries, that is probably the problem.
CAMERAS TAKE A LOT OF JUICE, try a better grade battery like Duracell and see if you get better results, make sure batteries have fresh date code and not expired

Try taking the batteries out for a few minutes. They're may be a second battery for the camera clock and date. If there is, do the same. Good luck.

Nx1000, when about to take picture my camera scrolls through all the program's settings without me touching the dial, any ideas what could be wrong?


If you did not drop the camera or nothing is damaged on the outside I can't explain. Did you try to remove the battery for a few moments? this should restart the system. But it the error keeps coming back, check if the navigation dial does not function strange, while in playback mode.
Please make sure you don't touch any button or dial, while shooting a picture. If the problem keeps coming back, please visit your dealer or a certified Samsung service centre.

Lost visibility on view


As long as the USB cable is connected to the camera, you can't use it to shoot, nor to view.
If your camera does not work as expected, remove the battery, and after a few moment reinsert it.
Make sure the battery is charged, before you reinsert it.

Wont go to picture taking screen or playback menu


A lot of cameras seem to be having this issue (including myself). Eventually it got to a point where the camera doesn't even turn on properly anymore. Better take it back for repair, STAT before it ends up like mine :(

I am having trouble photographing birds. Do I use the telephoto lens or the wide angle lens? I also have a macro lens for my Canon EOS 400D SLR Also what settings do I take them at. I have a tripod but the...


Use the telephoto lens.. wide angle will tend to distort the image and provide too much detail( distraction) around the object of interest. Bird pictures become more interesting when they are mainly of the bird. So when you look through the lens, zoom up to the bird to the point where you have it nicely framed with none of its parts outside of the frame.
Capture the whole image.

Wide angle lens is mainly used for scenery or where you want to take a group photo or panorama.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Condensation operation


I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at
http://www.freewebs.com/ltooz/03jvcgrd70u.htm
The process involves taking the camera apart.
Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.

Blured Pictures


When you sent the camera in did they give you a diagnosis? Even set to macro it shouldn't affect wider angle pictures. My money would be on a fault with the autofocus, sony probably should have replaced the unit. I wouldn't give up on sony though, every cybershot i've used (which quite a few) has always given good results and never had a fault. I agree i've seen plenty of dsc w30's/35's/50's/55's etc models on ebay with breakdown problems of one sort or another, but all manufacturers have problems.
