The projector keeps turning off the screen image but not powering down


The projector has a feature that keeps the screen dark when there is no slide in the projection gate. The light is blocked, but not turned off. There is a latch on the slide of the shutter that controls when it opens (slide in the gate) and when it remains closed (no slide in the gate). It sounds like the latch on the side of the dark shutter needs adjustment. Here is the website where you can get the adjustment procedure. http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-locale=en_US&pq-path=6499
Good Luck !!! Jim

Hi, I would like to take a timed exposer, maybe for as long as five minutes......Thanks


In manual exposure mode, set the shutter speed to bulb. This is the next slower shutter speed past thirty seconds. The bulb setting will keep the shutter open as long as you keep the shutter button pressed.

It's easier if you have a remote control. With the ML-L3 wireless remote, you can press the button once to open the shutter and again to close it. Most wired remotes have a lock so you can lock the shutter open until you want to close it.

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when...


I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are notorious for the following problem (fantastic cameras otherwise).
A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The display will not show anything when the camera is turned on. All the options are on the screen but nothing else. It is black.


First off you didn't say if the pictures it is taking are OK, or if they are also black. If the pictures are turning out fine, then it's likely that you just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera, accidentally turning the screen off to save batteries. Press the button one more time to turn it back on.
But if the pictures take are also black, then a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

In S mode camera wont take a pic, r09 comes on screen


The r09 is just the display that tells you how many pictures you have in the memory buffer for shooting in continuous mode. There are a few reasons why it might not take a pic in S, but normally it's when it's not in focus. Maybe you have it pointed at something too close for the lens to focus. It also could be that your shutter speed setting is way too fast for the available light.

In S mode, the camera will use your shutter speed setting and adjust the aperature to match the light. If it can't get enough light at the shutter speed set, then it won't expose. Keep in mind this isn't just for exposures that are close to being right, only when the shutter speed is so fast or slow that the exposure isn't in the ballpark.

Try moving your shutter speed up or down.

LENS PROBLEM


The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it.
Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely. If they do no move freely it maens the shutter “blasdes” and stuck by particles/dust/something. So you just continue to shift them like that untill they are free again. Once they are free turn your camera back on and it should perform as normal.

Canon Powershot S2IS black screen can't take pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). Not sure what causes this issue, but some say it's heat, others say it's dust.

But anyways, to confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:
