CAMARA turns off when i press to take a photo

Camara is about 2 yrs old and has been well looked after and not had any heavy use, while we were on holiday the camara started to turn itself off when trying to take a photo, i thought it was the batteries but its still doing it with new batteries in it. It will power up and let you look at your photos, but the moment you push the button to take a pic, it turns off leaving the lens out, it will turn back on and turns off normally, But i brought it to take photos!!! Help Thanks in advance Nick

    Same issue with my camera-- pressing the shutter button causes the camera to shut off... Camera is less than a year old and has been well-maintained.

    Me to! Help! It did it a few months ago and wouldn't work for about 6 weeks.. then one day i picked it up again, forgetting that it wouldn't work and it randomly worked again....now it is doing it again...

    I found out it was my battries over time the recharagable battries die,



    I brought 2 new rechargable battries and the camara now works fine (i nearly sent off the camera costing £90, and thought i might try this first, and it does)



    So before you pay to get it looked at try some new batteries first, try good battries, as the cheep brands dont hold enough juice to power up the camera properly.



    The rechareable battries i brought were 2700mah and now the battries last a lot longer than they used to.



    Hope this helps

    I have the exact same problem! I am able to look at pictures but unable to take any. I've tried the new battery thing and that didn't work. When pressing the shutter button the camera goes to black shutting itself off. I've had the camera less than a year great condition.

I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.

Optio M20 Stuck on Zoom in and out!


you have a timing problem,the gears for your housing is out of calibration with your focus lens inside of the housing. you must take the camera apart to correct the problem.there is a flywheel type of ajustment in the top of the camera that can be turned to bring the camera back to its reset position. it is bad to keep turning on the camera as this may danage the gear that is out of time.

Cant get the camara to work


start from scratch here..plug and play should see that camera on USB port(try more than one if you have them) and then follow the install guides. You MAY need to remove those old install programs, through Add/Remove programs in control panel.

Help need to fix camara for work


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. you need professional service to fix it.

Error-C1


Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).
