It´s normal in that kind of cameras it can be fine but after u shoot one pic with flash will happen the same, to fix the problem u will need to send it to a repair centre, they will isolate some stuff inside to prevent that from happening.

Camera not working

Hi Jane,
When we press the shutter release the mirror flips up after the shutter opens and closes the mirror flips down. When it flips down we then see out the viewfinder.

At first blush is sounds as though the mirror flipped up but not back down. Remove the lens look inside the camera press the shutter release what happens?

Cordially,

Hi, I have a F4 one week ago, I've shoot two films, and when i have developed them, i have seen a line of 4 mm wide along the up long side of each photo. Does anybody know what's...

Thanks for the additional information.

Remove the lens and set the camera to manual exposure mode. Select the "B" (or "Bulb") shutter speed. Open or even remove the camera back and hold the camera up to a light source and press and hold the shutter. Look through the camera to see whether there is any horizontal obstruction towards the bottom of the film gate ( = top of negative, they're taken upside down). If you see an obstruction then assess the damage and if it's a foreign body then remove it. Note that you must absolutely not reach through the open shutter. If it closes whilst you have your fingers or tools in the way you will ruin the shutter assembly.

If that test shows nothing, then you really have run out of options and need to send the camera to a service centre for diagnosis and repair. It's likely to be a sticking shutter causing an overexposed band across the negative, usually the width of the band would show some variation in width and position depending upon shutter speed.

A poor battery will not be the cause of a shutter issue. Unless faulty, the shutter will either work or it won't, unlike the previous F3 the F4 lacks a mechanical back-up shutter speed.

Can't take any photo with my Canon S3IS any more. The view finder and the screen is black when I try to take some photo but I am able to see all photo that is already on my memory card in the view finder...

Look into the lense while setting the shutter speed at a half second or so (slow enough for you to see the shutter open and close) and click the shutter release... you should see the shutter open and close. If you don't see this, then you may have a 'sticky shutter' resulting from lubricant seeping into the shutter/aperature mechanism and preventing the shutter from functioning as it should.(Common problem reported with the S2 and S3 cameras... and probably the S1 as well)

I have gotten my S3IS to take pictures by turning on the power, then opening the battery compartment door and reclosing it repeatedly until the shutter opens (from the power surge) and an image appears on the LCD.

After confirming the sticky shutter was indeed the problem, I pursued a more permanent fix.

I am having what appears to be a classic problem with the sx 70 after reviewing some forums. The viewfinder goes black when i push the button then nothing for a long period of time. Once i push it again...

How old is the battery? The shutter in all polaroid cameras ia battery controlled, so if the battery is old, the shutter will not function properly. If it's taking a while to make noise, rollers aren't likely an issue - roller issues are evident with spotte development. It may be an issue with the motor, shutter, or battery.

My A540 clicks like it takes a picture but nothing shows on the display screen. When I take the memory card out and insert to computer the frame of pictures show but the photos are black.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

But if you do notice shutter movement, then this would then likely be a CCD imager failure. It would in that case require Canon service to repair (1-800-OK-CANON).

Black viewer and black photos

THE MOST LIKELY REASON FOR THIS COULD BE EITHER THE SHUTTER IS NOT OPENING(IN THIS CASE WHEN YOU HALF PRESS THE CLICK BUTTON YOU SEE SOME SORT OF SNOWY PICTURE )IF NOT THEN THE CCD HAS GONE FAULTY AND IN BOTH THE CASES THE HARDWARE NEEDS TO BE CHECKED THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT YOURSELF
