It refuses to take a photo(shutter does not close) when the button is pressed. I have had this camera for a month(my dad gave me it since he upgraded to digital) so I know very little about it. Any insight? everything seems to be working ok, it focuses and then just does not do anything-- Thanks for any help
If the automatic exposure system senses that it cannot properly adjust to the existing lighting conditions, it will not let you take the picture. See if the camera will take the picture in the manual exposure mode. Also, verify that the problem is not in the AF lens you are using by putting another lens on the camera body.
