Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a samsung memory camcorder, every time I try and video it says check lens cover, the lens cover is open


Answers :

Look u are a victim of BAD CCD present in Digital Cameras Photo and Video both becoz both use CCD

actually it is a manufac fault in thousands of camera and hundreds of models ppl are facing the same problems all manufac have taken notice of the problem and arranged for free repairs of these type of faults and some have also issued service advisories for this purpose, but if ur camera model is not recalled by Samsung dont worry just contact Samsung Service centre in ur area and they will do it for Free i am pretty sure , u can see similar advisories for the same problem below to confirm ur problem. I am use to handle this fault from years and i know 100% all symptoms and faults in these type of digital camera so there is no 1% chance of fault

actually as ur Camera Circuitory is unable to get picture from CCD the chip responsible for processing the picture and capturing it is faulty so ur camera thinks that the LENS CAP is OFF as black screen no pic is sensed by camera same problem occured in JVC as well see the advisory
pls see these service advisories by JVC , Sony , Panasonic Canon etc

My samsung nv24hd has had its lens stuck open, so I got it to closed carefully. Now whenever I try to turn on my camera, the lens will not open. The screen says samsung, and it freezes. I am able to see the pictures and videos on my camera, but I can't take pictures. It either beeps 3 times, or it freezes with the samsung logo on the screen. Is there anything I can do?

I have a 3 year old Sony DCR-DVD202E Camcorder which has worked perfectly up until yesterday, when the lens cover refused to open.

I bought my camera Christmas Eve, and a new memory card Christmas Day. Yesterday, I tried turning the camera on and the lens opened and shut automatically and said Lens Error with a Large Red Exclamation point.

I have replaced the batteries, tried a differant memory stick, and I turn it on and off to reboot. None of these solutions work.
