Casio Exilim Dropped and smashed digital screen on the back camera still takes good photo's but unable to view on camera or set up shot. How much will this repair cost me? more than the camera is worth?

Fuji F700 Hi, where did you send your camera to in order to get the free repair ? was it still under guarantee ? I am in UK and on the Fuji.UK website I had to fill in a form where it asked for my seriel number. It quoted me a £59 = $100 repair or a £35= $70 trade in.

I receive the same "errr" message. The photo shop said it was a bad contact, they cleaned them with an eraser and made sure there was good contact. Problem was slightly better, but still exists. I have to remove the battery to clear the problem, turning it off and back on does no good. You can actually feel the lense move ever so slightly. Camera has gone back to Nikon for a repair. Very disappointed at this point with this. Camera store acknowledged that they have seen many of these.

Dropped Camera I leant my camera to someone and now it won't turn on. The front of the camera is slightly separated from the back and top (the part with buttons on top). Any suggestions? I'm tempted to open it with a small screwdriver and manually put the camera back together but I'm afraid that it's probably not a very good idea. I can't bring the camera in for repair because I'm in Rwanda and can't necessarily find a canon expert here. Any help is appreciated!

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

I cannot upload pictures from the camera to the computer. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software (Digital camera solution disk Ver.30.2) and have tried a different USB cable but I'm getting an error message that indicates the connection to the camera is not good.

I'm trying to see how much it's going to cost to get my camera repaired and I need the serial number. I can't find the serial number ANYWHERE on my camera and I'm fearing that it might have been on the sticker that was located on the bottom of my camera. That sticker got torn off my camera a while back. Any other way I can figure out the serial number?


Yep, the sticker on the bottom did contain the serial number. For my m753, the Kodak website said they would repair for $60, or give 25% off of a purchase from their website (which has pretty good prices, actually). You will also notice that Kodak ... Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs.

From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera.  thanks for responding.  now i have to go thru "what to buy" again....... ... Canon Digital Cameras

CCD Problem My HP Photosmart 945 camera's CCD broke down, and I'm told that there's no way to repair it, because HP does not sell the part. What could I do?.
