Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Bought a digital camera two weeks ago, FE3000 Olympus. Cant take a picture without horizontal lines appearing on my LCD.only 20% of the pictures I take are without these lines. When I use the video, its is perfect. Still images however are difficult to appreciate. I bought camera for daughter because I thought it was a point and shoot camera. Even in iauto mode I seldom get a perfect shot. What is wrong???????Please help me. I am willing to pay 9.95 if you can help me fix my camera. Again its an

Answers :

The lines on the pictures are most likely caused by a ccd sensor problem, its the sensor that actually takes the picture.

The issue could be the lcd display failing but since the lines come to the pictures that you get from the camera its most likely the ccd sensor and the lcd display is perfectly fine.

One thing you can try is to clean the lens and the camera in general, this might give a small improvement.
Is the camera still covered by warranty? how old is it. I'm afraid it would require repairs, which might be costly if outside of warranty, warranty might save you in this case. if its outside of warranty, the repair price might be too high.

Can you find me a Serial number from the camera, look around the bottom, below the battery door, etc. it could be on the receipt or on the package. Also where are you located currently?

White Screen Ever since a few nights ago, my camera has been showing this white screen. The funny thing is, that I can see the menu and other options perfectly. But when I want to take a picture, the screen is pure white, and even the pictures I take are absolutely white, and sometimes with a light grayish circle in the middle. I don't know why this is and I just bought this camera around the fifth of january and it was working perfectly fine then. Please help me?

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.

Try a hard reset first - Remove batteries and SD card, wait 5 minutes and reinsert everything and try. If the issue still recurrs, then best take it to the shop and check it out. You should still have the warranty on it. If they cannot fix it, ask th ... Digital Cameras

Screen problem?? Hello can anyone help? My camera turns on just fine and takes pics fine. Tonight while turning on my camera the screen is all white with some black lines through it.. and a leaf looking thing which is black. I see NO PICTURE at all. But when i take pictures and upload them to the computer the pics still work. But when i take the actual pictures or try to view any all i have is the white screen what can i do to fix this?

This sounds like a cracked screen.. a leaf you say? is the leaf a graphic, perhaps an icon.. is it centered on the screen at all?hmm.... I would take it to a certified repair center to see if they can replace the LCD panel. So ... Digital Cameras

I just got my camera back from Canon but it still isn't working right! I took it in because when I turned it on it said NO CF CARD. They fixed the metal prongs. Now, it still doesn't work to store or view photos on the camera without a cf card. I inserted my old CF (undamaged card) and formatted it and now it seems to take photos BUT nothing shows on my camera viewfinder when I go to take the photos. It shows I have over 3000 photos on my card but they will not display. Help!

Screen Broken Hi, I had my Samsung l700 camera in my back pocket in a protective case yet the screen somehow broke on the inside and all I see is a black screen with two lines across it when i turn on my camera. The camerea can no longer take pics. They all turn out blurry. Is there a way I can fix this without having to can a new screen and if not where can I order a screen or get my camera fixed online.

I just bought a Vivitar Vivicam T027 camera. It says to use a SD card. I tried that - does not fit. I tried the SDHC card - does not fit. Please help me by telling me what kind of card this camera does take. The 800 number given in the manual is useless - 45 minutes and then it disconnected without me talking to anyone. I'm at a loss and I have also given this camera to a friend as a gift so I'm embarrassed because I can't get mine to work or hers. Thanks for helping me.

Are you sure you are not placing the card in up side down? SD cards definitely fit on this one, just make sure the slot is empty when you pushing it in.\015\012\015\012don't force it, if it feels like your forcing it, its upside down.\015\012 ... Vivitar ViviCam 3915 Digital Camera

Camera will not "click" to take a picture. I had two old batteries which I charged -- no help. Then I bought a new battery on line -- still no good. I have noticed over past several months camera seems "reluctant" to take a picture -- might have to try a few times to get it to "snap."

There may be dirt or debris that collected under the button causing it not to work properly. Try using an electronics cleaner on the button. This will clean out any dirt and hopefully allow the camera to "snap" pictures better. Here is a link to e ... Digital Cameras

I used the Nikon D90 with Lens Kit 18-200 mm, and I also bought the new Lens call Nikkor 75-300mm. But when I connected the new one (Nikkor 75-300 mm) in my camera and took some pictures, after that I couldn't take more because it has F33 Error. I changed the Lens Kit that error disappeared.
