Camera will not take photo

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.

    One other solution I just remembered. In addition to my two n8008's, I also have a n4004 that I have experienced this problem on. I found that on the 4004, if I remove the batteries and then return them to the camera, the "computer" resets and the problem goes away. This could work on the 8008.

My focus button keeps sticking on my Fujifilm S2000HD camera.?

Have you tried focusing before you take a photo? To do this, press down the shutter button on your camera but don't push it far enough to take a photo. This enables the camera to focus on what it's about to photograph before you press the shutter button again and take the photo.

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,

I have turned camera on and set up to take a photo and the shutter release button will not press in to take the photo. I used the camera yesterday and it worked fine!

Turn the camera on and look into the view finder while you try to press the shutter button. Check the information in the view finder to see whether you are getting an error message. If you see an error message in the view finder, remove the lens cap and proceed to take a photograph but, instead of pressing the shutter button this time, press the button near the top of the camera on the back which says "AF/AE. If the camera takes the photo it means you have somehow initiated the auto focus/auto exposure lock which the camera will not override when attempting to take a photo using the shutter button. When you use the AF/AE button, you override this system. To remedy this issue, when you get the error message try pressing the shutter button again. Also, remove the lens to see if the shutter inside has frozen in the "locked" position. If you find this to be the case you will need to contact Nikon Customer Support. The link for Nikon Support is below. The numbers are half-way down the page.

Camera works but the screen went black A640 except for video and color swap. Did I press a button? I was shooting in cold weather.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

But if you've already tried this, have you also tried downloading any of your photos taken with the black screen to your computer? Are the photos also black? If so, you might instead be experieincing a stuck shutter (possibly due to the cold weather).

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.

Shutter problems

I am having a similar problem with my eos 100QD.
shutter opens, then stays open until I depress the shutter switch again.
Sometimes about half my photos are lost on a roll, but the other photos are fine (as would be expected from how the film is wound). This problem looks like it's caused by the shutter mechanism failing, a common problem with older camera and one that is often more expensive to repair than it is to replace the body.

How to view

There are two ways to view the photos, in the camera...

1) if the camera is OFF and the lens barrier is closed, just press the Play (>) button once to view the photos.
2) If the camera is in SHOOTING mode with the lens barrier open, press the Quick View button twice in rapid succession.

When you are done reviewing the pictures, press the Quick View button once to turn the monitor off, OR, to return to the shooting mode, press the shutter button halfway.

Then use the arrow pads to go forward and backward.

Hope this helps.

The camera takes too long to take a photo. What should I do?

Press the shutter button halfway and hold it to set the focus, then press it the rest of the way down to take a photo. If you press the shutter button down all the way at once, it takes time to focus and set the exposure before the shutter releases. It may take longer than when pressing the shutter button in two steps.
