Customer Question
I have a Nikon...

I have a Nikon D3200 and when I am using Auto program even when there is plenty of light the shutter seems to react very slowly. I brought the camera in to have the latest firmware down loaded but the camera just does not perform the way it use to when I first bought it. Any suggestions?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your D3200?

I am guessing about 5 years.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your D3200?

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Can you remove the battery please then hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds then release.

Wait 5 minutes, put the battery back in and try to turn it on.

Tell me please if it now starts

Thank you
