I've tried both ways. 7 seconds from the button push and also 7 seconds from hearing the final click indicating the end of the exposure. I *think* I've had it work both ways but it usually does take about 5 or 6 times letting the batteries fall out of the compartment at 7 seconds. Maybe it takes me that long to get the timing exactly right. I don't know but eventually it does open the iris again. NOTE: For some reason going to "Preview" the images you've taken will close the iris again and I still have to do this procedure to get my camera going again but I have NOT been very good about taking several exposures every day. From my understanding, that will lead to a more permanent fix. Good Luck!

Error message at display screen


Set both the exposure dial and the focusmode to "M" and press the shutter button. Then turn the camera off for 10 - 15 seconds. If this doesn't solve the problem, it's an electronic or mechanical error.

I'm thinking this camera was drop thats why this problem is happening, and this can be a mechanical problem inside the camera that some of its parts is loose now that's why it wont even power ON and the lens is not retracted and in fixing this the camera should be taken apart , but if the camera is still under warranty better take it to a service center or have it replace....

Hope that helps.........

Olympys fe-270 takes blurry pictures


Try this. Aim the camera at the person/object you want to take a picture of. Press the shutter button "HALF WAY DOWN" wait 2 seconds then complete by pressing all the way down to take the picture. The auto focus works on the "half way down" stroke. Some cameras have a light that goes from red to green to let you know the focus was completed. Or, just wait the 2 or so seconds.

Change the delay on the shutter


I sat & pushed buttons until it quit. I don't know what I did but it is okay now - until next time.

Thanks for having a free site I can ask questions and get solutions.

CANON POWERSHOT S2 IS 5 MEGA PIXELS


I bought mine 2 1/2 yrs ago too. Found this solution on this site and tried it. It worked perfectly.
Turn to TV mode, set the exposure to 15 seconds by pushing the little "arrow dial" until you have 15"
Push the button to take the picture.
Wait 7 seconds from when you push the button, then turn over and open the battery door while it is "taking the picture."
Close the battery door and turn back on. 
I did this three times and the last time, it worked and the iris became unstuck.
Then I took a million pictures to get the iris moving.
Good luck!

Samsung NV3 Camera


Hey Rider18,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute or two and then reinserting the battery. If this doesn't work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, or you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Casio Digital Camera ex-s770 will not open


Hi, this is a problem alot of people get having with this type of camera.
It could be one of a couple of things first check the battery is fully charges as a faulty battery would cause this problem, do you have a switch on the camera that lets you see the pictures stored on it without opening the lense, not all makes and models do this some have switch you can slide and some is just push button the push button you cant do this.
So if yours is the push button one then the only thing to try if the battery isnt the problem is looking and removing anything thats caught in the side of lense.
Ok try removing battery and any mem cards if you have any in it then bang the camera firmly into the palm of your hand sort of shocking the camera to dislodge any thing thats stuck in the side of lense do this few times then replace battery and switch on usually this solves the problem.
If not then when you switch camera on grab the lense and help it come out taking it past where it gets stuck be gentle try this few times and see if camera comes on.
Once the lense is passed certain point the camera should come on.
So give that a try it does sound like something is jamming the lense so try pulling it out gently only do it when its supposed to be coming out when it trys to go back in let go again try this few times.
Failing this then the problem could be that either the camera has been put down with the lense open and forced the lense motor damaging it or the other thing that people tend to do is switch camera on acidently whilst its in pocket or case so that it switches on but the lense is blocked from coming out this causing damage to lense motor.
If the problem is in fact the lense motor then their is no way of getting this repaired they just dont repair these and you cant get the parts like lense motor no camera shop will even look at them as you cant get parts and also price of repair would cost more than replacing the camera.
Also check to see if your lense turns round as its coming in or out if it does this then try turning the lense as its coming out.
Let me know how you get on ok and ill try assist you further

Taking pictures


First look on the back and with the camera on press the DISP or DISPLAY button. If you still have a problem after doing this, then it needs to be repaired. You mention the camera is only 4 months old, and is thus still under warranty. Call 1-800-828-4040 or 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666) to have it repaired for free under its warranty. And here's its warranty:

Panasonic Mumix DMC-FX07 Problem: All Buttons Locked, Scene Mode Jacked


Hey the same kind of problem happened to me last week and I was sorely pissed off. These cameras are not cheap to buy when they are new. Anyway I was looking up the number of the local service agent and turned my camera on to check something. Just by chance I found that if I touch the button on top for taking the picture and then simultaneously press the menu button I got access to my whole camera again! Now when I say touch I mean touch...lay your finger on the button do not press it even to the first stage, which is auto focus. It worked for me and if it works for you post your result to benefit anyone else who comes across this problem. Future.
