Check your SD Card What Are You Using?

Are you using the batteries listed as compatible according to the cameras battery door? Or are you using NON-compatible Alkaline or Ni-Cad batteries? Only Li-Ion and Ni-MH are compatible. Hope this helps...

Your camera should either have a USB cord that will connect it to the computer or your computer may have a memory card reader. Plug either one into your computer and goto the My Computer Icon either located on your desktop or in your start button and your camera shoud be listed in there as a new drive. If you are using an operating system older than Windows XP then you may need to download the drivers from the manufaturers website.

if the shutter is broken it is necessary to get it replaced.as if u said the device is new u can send it to service center to get it replaced.

With how inexpensive that model has become, as low as $65.00 it would be cheaper to just buy another one and recycle the old one at a facility that takes E-Waste. Sorry for the bad news.
Take Care,

Go to settings (usually a toolbox icon), select language, choose english.

The codec on mac does not recognise your file....try using a different player....vlc....gom player...mx player...instead of the one iTunes insist on chaining everyone to.

Move it back again. Did you do any editing in the computer ? If so, the camera will no longer recognise the images on the card.

I have a Z981 myself. I just set my camera as you did (to "A") but did not experience the issue you mention?
Just to be clear, remember that setting the camera to "A" means "Aperture priority", meaning that you can control the lens aperture (with the "jog dial" on the top of the camera) and the camera will automatically set the shutter speed to create a proper exposure. "A" does NOT mean automatic exposure control. You must use "P" (Programmed) mode to make the camera make all the decisions about shutter speed and lens aperture.
I am including a web link to the User Guide for the Z981. You might want to revisit the Guide to make sure you are using the correct settings for your pictures.
BTW, I like my Z981 quite a bit, especially the zoom. I've taken some great pictures with it.

Surely this information is included in the technical specifications at the rear (probably) of the camera manual ?
