    neither on manual nor automatic. All the other stuff is operational, viewer, display, focus, timers, flash, etc. It just doesn't want to activate the shutter when I push the button or set the timer.

Camera won't take pictures.


Go into the settings and select Clean CCD. It should be under the blue menu. The shutter curtain has a tendency to stick on this model. There was a recall on them way back when they first came out. 1a53cc1b-6da0-4b38-942c-78caadf51633.gif 1bcf9dee-9615-448f-a170-16ef0e446320.gif

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,

There is a delay between the time I press the button to take the picture, and when the picture actually is snoapped. Can I make this delay a shorter time?


This is a common situation with many compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work between the time you press the shutter release button and it takes the picture; set the focus, meter the light and set the exposure, switch from showing the real-time image on the LCD to capturing and storing a single image, and more. Larger, heavier, and more expensive DSLRs have additional hardware to reduce this "shutter lag" to nothing, compact cameras don't.

There is something you can do to reduce the time, however. If you know where the action is going to happen (a kid getting ready to blow out the candles on a cake, for example), press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter. Hold the button there until the action happens, then press it the rest of the way. This lets the camera get most of the work done before taking the picture.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

Sometimes when I depress the shutter nothing happens for several seconds. I have to depress the shutter and the camera finally takes the picture. its does not happen all the time.


You need to press the shutter half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then press the rest of the way when the moment is right.

OLYMPUS SP350 WONT TURN ON


Try this:

1. Remove batteries
2. Remove XD card
3. Power up without XD card and try taking a few pictures using the internal memory.
4 If this works OK I suspect it is the XD card at fault. I have had a problem with a couple of cards but most of these were when I tried reading the card using an external card reader.
5. If you have one available or can borrow one try another XD card.

I have heard that some people have had some success using the following method to restore XD card.

If you know someone with a Fuji digital camera which takes XD cards then ask them to try formatting the card in their camera for you. Maybe your local retailer will let you try this with one of their display models. I have not tried this myself.

If this fails there are some card recovery programmes on the internet - try searching for CONVAR in Google.

If the card is a Fuji card then you could try contacting Fuji as they offer a card recovery service - or at least try to recover images from corrupt cards. Contact them on the internet first to check conditions and costs.

Finally I have not had any problems with the camera since I started using lithium or rechargeable lithium batteries.

No problems that is to say other than the person pushing the shutter release.

Olympus C-750 shutter problems


Changing the firmware won't change anything. The micro switch may be stuck in the on postition. If you are familiar with micro circuits, you could get the switch from Olympus or USCamera.com and replace it. Or, send the camera to Olympus or an Olympus authorized shop.
