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
Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...

I have a Nikon D40X camera with two lenses - one is 18-55 and the other is 55-200. Unfortunately, when I was at a wedding rehearsal, my 55-200 lens dropped off the pew on to the ground. It was not on the camera at the time and it has not worked properly ever since. My camera works properly with the 18-55 lens. Is there anything that can be done to fix it? Essentially, the camera can still focus, in and out, but when I try and push the button down, to take a picture, it just continues to refocus
It is broken - either you wear the cost and replace it, or send it to a lens specialist and have it reset. Without seeing it, it is impossible to ascertain the condition. Most lens repairers will give you a quote for only a few dollars.\015\012 ... Nikon D40X Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

We have a Canon SD1100 IS. We wanted to take a photo, but the screen is black. We took a photo anyway and tried to view it and it does not come on the screen, and the screen is still black. We tried the DISP button and that does not work in this case. Everything else seems to be ok. We can see the other photos we have taken. Do you have any idea what is wrong with the camera or where we can take it to have it looked at or fixed? Brian Anderson

I have tried several cards. They all work on my other camera. It is not a problem with my card (in case you were going to ask). The problem is after I format the card, it reads the "frame no. full" when I try to shoot.

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do?

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.
Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time.
