Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Canon I have a fairly new 1 1/2 year old canon power shot A530. It keeps saying the batteries are low even with new ones in it. It says to change them then shuts off. If I turn it back on it may be ok for a short time then says they are low again. Any suggestions?

We just received our brand new canon t3i in the mail. We formatted the card (a 2GB 700X Professional High Speed Error Free (SD) Memory Card Class 10) and immediately started shooting to test out the camera. Everything seemed to work fine until we tried to apply a filter to one of the photos. The entire camera froze. We even tried turning the camera off and it would not shut off. We ended up having to take the battery out and put it back in. When we did and turned the camera back on we received a

Blank lcd I just got a new canon 600D. After playing with it for a while, i turned it off. Then after 5-10 mins i turned it on once again, and opened the lcd screen, but it shows blank(or say black).

Flash works though, and optical view finder too, but it does not capture the photo.
