maybe you should clear up your memory card and release disk space. and if the camera still have the nosie,maybe there is something wrong with your lens. the lens maybe too loose or too has something to do with the lens mount.

Hi there, i just bought a 60D and trying all the functions it has. When im on any creative mode and the lens is set to AF, i cant seem to take a picture or even adjust the AF mode. i even couldnt open the...

I don't think it is something you did wrong. What you can do is go into menu, and clear "All camera settings". This will set it back to default mode. Then try to see what does on af on lense. See if will work on mf mode as well.

I changed my batteries, but I am still not getting anything when I turn my camera on.

If you can use external power source, try and see if the camera takes pictures. If it does, try cleaning the battery contacts.
If both external and battery power do not take pictures, then something is is wrong inside the camera.

The P-channel MOSFET switching the CF power is dead. It is on the little board directly above the battery compartment. SOT23 package, the marking is 338 or something like that. Replace it and it will work.

My Camera Wont Turn On To Take Pictures

i had this problem also. i tried reinstalling the program on my computer, buying new batteries and charging them with an external charger. nothing seemed to work. i was convinced the problem lay with the camera.
i had taken the camera at one point to a very cold and dusty environment (a glacier). the lens cap started getting stuck after that, and it would occasionally not send out the lenses. i had dismantled it to clean it, which kind of worked.
this time, i was certain it was something to do with the recharging system in the camera. however when i opened it up i noticed 2 things...
a) one of the 4 base screws that hold the battery cover on, had been put back in the wrong place... these screws are about a millimeter longer than the other black screws, and in the wrong place could have been shorting it out.
b) the front and back covers are grounded by a strip of copper on the side opposite the strap retainer. these were crushed and could have been also grounding something out. i straightened the strips out and put everything back together, testing the on/off button after every couple of screws.
i am happy to say that i got mine back working again. i put my experience down to inexperience and the difficulty of doing a field repair the first time. tools required: magnifying glass, bright light, and a very fine philips screw driver (1mm).
p.s.: the lens caps still sticks partially closed, so i never did fix that problem. LOL!

Cant take any pictures

the Shutter or some assicated components is shattered. This may be a repair situation at Nikon- but if you have had the camera for some time I suspect you will be buying another camera.
