X10 "halfway" no longer focusing/locking focus

Recommended Posts

Help help!

My aged X10 is still working like a treat apart from a super irritating problem:
the shutter button no longer engages the camera when pressed halfway. It will still autofocus and take pictures when the button is fully pressed but I can't focus and lock focus halfway. I have reset the camera etc. but it seems there is a lack of connection between the button and the camera. Has anyone encountered this problem or got any suggestions?

(I'm a creature of habit and love this camera but having to use the manual focus just takes too long when taking snapshots)

Sorry to hear you're having challenges. Outside of double-checking your settings and doing a factory reset, you can use the AEL/AFL as a back button focus option using manual mode. Does the camera take an exposure reading when you half-press the shutter in manual mode? Does focus work if you press the shutter button halfway in continuous focus mode?
