You need to turn the speed dial to the M90 or 'B' setting to unlock the camera

I have a Nikon Coolpix P500. I have to depress the shutter release button several time to get it to snap a picture. The indicator light shows a fully charged battery.


Did you change (unnoticed perhaps) anything to the settings?
Be aware your camera needs a little time to focus. And when conditions are bad, like little contrast in the subject or bad light conditions, the camera needs more time to focus.
Please try to shoot in automatic mode. Then when you have a subject press the shutter release button half way. Look if you framed correct and then press fully. This way every time the camera should click.

I receive a Err on the display shutter snaps but no picture takes place. I have found out that if I try to take a pitcher let the shutter snap and then push the the apature botton i think it is on the...


Hi Jeff - The manual describes "Err" as a general error, a "Camera malfunction" and says "If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative." (Bottom of page 132 in the english version of the manual.)

Some folks have had mixed results with removing / mounting the lens once or twice, charging the battery and cleaning the contacts of both the lens and camera body's lens opening. More odten than not though - the camera has to go back to Nikon for repair. it appears that the shutter is replaced and things go back to working just fine again.

I would contact Nikon directly to learn if there are things they would like you to attempt before arranging for service of your D80.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

My monitor and viewfinder are black.


There may be one of this
Try connecting your camera with your pc if it gets connected this is problem 1 otherwise it is problem 2
In either case you need to go to Nikon or a experienced repairer
1) seems to be a stuck shutter problem. Can you hear a click sound when you snap a picture just like that? If yes then you shutter is jammed. Go and get it fixed from Nikon.
2) Camera firmware is not in good condition In this case as well you can go to nikon and get it upgraded.

I also have the problem of pictures not in focus. I have made a point to lock in first by pushing halfway down before snapping the picture. It's ridiculous that a picture of an inanimate object is not in...


Set the camera on a firm surface or a tripod and take a few test shots...are they better? If so, that means that you are moving when pressing the shutter.

Nikon D40 problem, often will not take pictures


Chuck,

Sounds like your lens might be set to M rather than M/A. Try that and let me know.

When I used the fireworks mode on my Nikon S700, in most of the pictures I got the tail end of the firework burst. What did I do wrong, and at what point should I be snapping the picture?


You need to anticipate the action slightly to account for your camera's shutter lag. Thus you'll need to snap the picture before the burst. Yes, it's tricky. The alternative is to use a higher-end camera with a shorter lag.

Shutter release/AE lock and control panel display


Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

Shutter button problem


This may be the same problem that requires you to press the LOCK button to actually take a picture. I found a solution and have posted to the questions mentioning the LOCK problem. Anyways, here goes, if that is not the problem please disregard what follows:

Monitor goes black


It always does that while it's powering up the flash again. If you're saying it doesn't come back after a few more seconds, that is a problem. Or maybe by that time, the power saver kicks in. You can tell if the power light starts blinking. Then you just have to press the shutter button again to turn it back on.

Error


Your battery may be near-dead. Nikon SLRs disable the shutter, but still let you view pictures, when the battery is low. Solution? Simply charge the battery.
