Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The lens opens then shuts again right away, and it is fully charged. I can review the pictures when I go under my favorites, but when I try to take a picture the camera shuts off right quick.


Answers :

Hi there. Turn on. Before it beeps, take the battery's out. This may take some practice. Now us a Qtip almost soaked in rubbing alcohol and clean the outside edges of the lenses. Put battery's back in and cycle the camera on and off. I hope this works for you. It worked for me.
Thanks

Hi
\015\012
\015\012the camera needs more power to take a picture as it has to operate the lenses, auto focus and and all the other parts moving or otherwise than to just display the images on the lcd....
\015\012
\015\012i know this is frustrating but the problem lies with the batteries the actual power outout from your batteries has deteriorated
\015\012
\015\012you may try new set of batteries or there is a slightly risky way of approach
\015\012
\015\012take the NIMH batteries after they have been completly used and then from a power source of not more than 5V and upto 1MA connect the +e to the +e of the battery and -ve wire to the -ve of the battery and hold it for 15 to 20 secs and place it for charging do this for all the batteries and there is a fair chance of getting them back...
\015\012
\015\012BUT BE VERY CAREFULL of the polarities on the batteries and the power source as if u connect them opposite u r gonna kill the batteries for good
\015\012
\015\012cheers
\015\012pls rate if this was any help

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,

I have a sanyo camera 7.1 mega pink and everytime i try and take a picture my screen goes black and shuts off without the camera piece going back in!
