Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a svp xthinn-8363 gigi camera, the battery is fully charged but when i turn it on the lens comes out then goes straight in and the camera shuts off, this happens with or without the sd card inserted

Answers :

It is an internal fault. The main board isn't recognizing something, you have a surge, and/or a sensor in the camera is bad. You need a camera repair shop to have a look at it as it is hard to narrow down these things. Get a quote first before going to the shop because it may just be better to buy a new camera if a shop charges a lot to just look at the camera. Sorry for the bad news, let me know how this turns out.

\015\012This may be a battery or battery connection issue. If you have already replaced your batteries with fresh ones, I would try cleaning the connections with an eraser head. If that doesn't work, you might want to contact SVP support Good luck.
\015\012I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I have a Minolta Dimage 7Hi and get a 'card error' message when I turn it on, in the middle of the viewing screen. The camera acts like it takes a picture without the button being pressed, then the red light next to the card goes on and off for about 10 seconds. Then the camera shuts down. It repeats this when I turn the camera back on and doesn't respond to any other settings or button pressings. Can you help?
