Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Nikon collpix l810 lens shake automatically


The Nikon Coolpix L810 is a great camera capable of taking very good and sharp pictures, even in bad light conditions. It has a Vibration reduction, that makes it even possible to shoot pictures without tripod when you zoom in very far. If normally with the same lens length you should need 1/200 of a second your camera should still be capable of taking that picture with only the same blur from shake, with 1/50 of a second. But if you ever should use a tripod. make sure you switch off that feature. Because the Vibration reduction, works with a staking lens element. that should compensate the movement of the camera, by shaking in the correct direction opposite to the movement of the camera. The element will still shake and so blur a picture, when the camera is placed on a tripod.
Don't try to shoot pictures with the zoom on full extension, in bad light conditions. That also won't work. Lots of things can be done with the camera, but to everything is a limit. Most of the time that limit comes sooner when there is less light.

The shutter does not operate.When the battery is inserted, all it does is adjusts the focus and does not click when you press the shutter. I'll appreciate your advice.Thanks


One of the most common problem is the antishake system.
When switched on, the carema shakes and makes sound for a second or two.
When the antishake is switched on (slide switch right of the ISO button) the 5 LED's of the antishake scale right in the view finder are flickering continuously.
When the antishake is broken, the camera doesn't fire even when the antishake is switched off.

Describe how to use the self timer on the samsung S830 digital camera


Make sure you're in a recording mode other than VOICE.

Press the Self-Timer button (right button) until the display shows the desired mode. Your choices are 10-second mode (the camera takes a picture ten seconds after you press the shutter button), 2-second mode (the camera takes a picture two seconds after you press the shutter button), and Double-self-timer (the camera takes a picture ten seconds after you press the shutter button, then takes another two seconds later).

You can cancel the self-timer mode by pressing the Self-Timer button again.

The 10-second mode allows you to run back for a group picture. The 2-second mode is useful when you want to take a picture without fear of camera shake; simply place the camera on a steady support such as a tripod. The Double mode increases the chances of getting a picture with everybody's eyes open.

My Sony DSC T70 shakes & vibrates


On Sony T100 and similar,
its the vibration canceling unit, i had the same problem.
if you have good hads you can fix it.( on your oun risk)
1) disasamble the camera, you will see black plastic box inside, this is he lens unit.
2) on the botom you see 2 scrwes, they are holding the CCD remove them and the ccd unit will come from the lens assembly
3) the next is the stabilizer unit it is the problematic one. it is located on the left side of the lens asebly and is held by 2 screws.
you can test it by puling out the cable connected to it (the conector is just under the lens) and verifign that the problem is solved. ( you can leave it this way it will shoot fine just without the anti shake)
4) to fix it take it out ,remove the plastic cover, you see the lens on a plastic mount it should be glued to the magnet under it. the problem is that the glue fals apart.
remove one of the pins on wich it slides, and take the lens and the magnet out.
5) reglue the magnet and reasemble the camera.
6) power up and test, for me that solved the problem

if you need more help you can mail me at adisarit(et)yahoo(dot)com
this is spam mail so be prepared to wait a few days for reply.
i have a document with pictures explaining the process

When I switch on my camera (Sony Alpha A100) it shakes & shudders


No, there isn't. It's the stabilizer shaking and making noises. Contact your local Sony service center.

I dropped my camera and now when turning camera on the shutter comes out for about 2 seconds then it beeps and then it goes back in, I can view photos but not take any.


The most of cases problems is your camera lense wont come out properly. it's appear to be a electronic problem but it's defenetly a mechanical problem. do do as i say. turn on your camera and after lense came out quickly remove the battery. after that camera lense move out shake it well. shake your camera well. your target should be remove if ther any blocking thing the way your camera lense come out. if this way wont work you have to open your camera and check your mechanism. some time it can be broken lense.

Camera Shake Warning


The camera shake icon is not 'smart' in that it doesn't actually measure camera shake, simply when shutter speeds drop below a certain level it will start to give you the warning. If the camera is on a tripod (and the subject is also stationary) you should use the absolute lowest ISO (ISO80 on the A650) to get the best results. Also, use the 2-second self-timer mode so that your pressing-the-shutter-button doesn't introduce shake to the photo (the camera will wait 2 seconds before taking the picture - long enough for all vibrations to stop). If the room is very dark (needing exposures longer than 1second), I recommend you use Tv mode to unlock the even-slower shutter speeds.

FZ20... wide angle = 36mm it is recomended that the average person should use a shutter speed of at least 1/36th of a second to avoid camera shake but with IS the average person can use as low as 1/5th to 1/9th of a second therefore being able to use the camera in lower light FZ20... telephoto = 432mm it is recomended that the average person should use a a shutter speed of at least 1/432 of a second to avoid camera shake but with IS the average person can use as low as 1/54th to 1/108th of a second therefore being able to use the camera in lower light
