Question about GE A730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My GE Digital Camera isn't working correctly

I have a GE A830 Digital Camera. I'm confused because only certain modes on the mode dial work. Auto Mode, Manual Mode, Protrait Mode, and some Scenes do not work correctly. Right after I push the button to take a picture, it completely freezes, the screen goes black. I have to take out the batteries and put them back in to be able to turn it on again. Is there a way to fix this, or is it just broken? Please help.

Why won't my fugi finepix s4500 won't focus sharply ?


No good working auto focus can have many causes.
Like the camera is in Macro mode, or manual focus. The best thing to try, is to switch your camera to the auto mode. The camera logo on your mode dial. And then shoot some pictures. There should be enough light and contrast in the frame, on the place you want the camera to focus on. Sometimes you have to chose an object, with enough details and contrast, on the same distance as the object you want to take a picture of. Then press the shutter half way, till the camera is in focus. the indicator lamp next to the mode dial glows green. Then frame the picture like you want it taken end only than press the shutter completely.
If the camera does focus correct in the auto mode, then you can check, why it did not focus before.
Check page 19 of the manual, to see how to use the shutter release button, for correct focus.

I have a Nikon D3100 and surprisingly the dial mode does not work properly. I mean when I turn it, at some modes, it shows the selected mode correctly on the display, but not for all


Hello mehran_vafae, is supposed to have put a DX lens.
The mode dial, select in what way is going to take a picture.
You can make combinations according to the mode set in the mode dial, with the Fn key / command dial, command dial / aperture A mode, command dial / shutter speed S mode, Full Auto / + / - compensation sw, etc. ..
Please carefully read the user manual supplied with your camera and if it fails take them to Nikon service.
Regards

Nikon D100 Manual shooting help


The mode dial (topside left) must be set to M. That's it for manual settings - the camera won't check anything, and certainly shouldn't require the flash. You need to choose your own shutter speed and aperture settings to get a good photo, but the camera will let you take a picture no matter how you have it set.

Only about half the modes work on mode selector dial


Sounds to me like the internal contacts aren't working correctly. Let your local camera store take a look. Hope it's under warranty.

Canon eos 400d mode dial does not select modes


Looks like you need to take this to a camera store and have them check it over. I don't know of any setting that would cause what you describe.

Mode dial turns, but does not change modes.


The camera is defective. Call 800 730 6597. Btw, if there is a memory card in it, try it without and see if the problem still exists.

Hi taylorrm, I don't know if you have a solution to this but sometimes the AE-L/AF-L but gets pushed which is the auto focus lock button then the shutter release button cannot be used to focus and yu have to reset by pressing it again.  Even though it's confusing at first it's a feature along with the AE/AF Lock to try out to lock your focal area on a subject prior to shooting.
To sbhoward5, check to make sure the switch on the camera body is switched to AF instead of M mode(looking at the front it's on the lower right hand side below the lens release button), which sometimes happens when changing the lens - so then the mode selected is in P,S,A, or M modes on the mode dial. happy shooting,

It would rust the metal and solder points in the camera and probably dilute the grease in the gears.
