DSC P200, taking pictures

I've had my camera for over a year, and recently taking pictures has become difficult. First i had to hold the button for ten seconds, but now it won't take at all. the screen works fine, and everything is coming through. but when i go to take a picture it will focus and then sit. same goes for taking movies. does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem could be?

I have a Kodak easyshare C875. Can I take a delayed picture? If so, how?


In any still mode except for Panorama, press the self-timer button (on the top of the camera, marked with a one-handed clock) once for a ten-second delay, again for a two-second delay, and yet again for two pictures (after ten-seconds and eighteen-seconds). To start the self-timer, press the shutter release button.

Taking out the battery would do no harm to your pictures. Also in some models of cameras you can force it to shut down by holding the power button for 10 seconds. Might be worth a try . If not you can always remove the battery.

Describe how to use the self timer on the samsung S830 digital camera


Make sure you're in a recording mode other than VOICE.

Press the Self-Timer button (right button) until the display shows the desired mode. Your choices are 10-second mode (the camera takes a picture ten seconds after you press the shutter button), 2-second mode (the camera takes a picture two seconds after you press the shutter button), and Double-self-timer (the camera takes a picture ten seconds after you press the shutter button, then takes another two seconds later).

You can cancel the self-timer mode by pressing the Self-Timer button again.

The 10-second mode allows you to run back for a group picture. The 2-second mode is useful when you want to take a picture without fear of camera shake; simply place the camera on a steady support such as a tripod. The Double mode increases the chances of getting a picture with everybody's eyes open.

Power key doesn´t work


There must be a problem with your batteries. If you have recently charged your batteries and it happens again, you should try a new set of rechargeable batteries.

You can try conserving charging power usage on camera by turning the flash off so that it doesn't precharge for the next shot.

Start up delay when using the MC-EU1 Remote Control with Coolpix cameras


When you turn the camera on it senses a device plugged into the USB port and must wait to determine what is connected (computer, remote, etc.). It may take up to ten seconds for the camera to realize that it is not connected to a computer and become ready to take photos. If you turn the camera on and then press the Shutter button on the Remote it will turn on almost instantly.
