My Canon Rebel XT camera was working just fine, but suddenly halfway through using it won't shoot any more. Everything on the camera works just fine, it just won't take any photographs in any mode. It can't be a problem with my CF card as its a trusty one I've had for a while, and I've tried formatting it just in case and my camera still won't work.
Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset"? Just follow the on-screen instructions. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Whenever the camera is shaken slightly harder than gently, the camera will not turn on unless a fresh battery is put in (fresh as in green in the charger), in which case it works fine until it is shaken again. Something sounds like it is loose on the inside. How can I fix this without a $200 repair bill?

Hi. I have a 16GB memory card. I checked it several times with h2testw software and it's working fine. After I shoot about 4GB I start getting "unidentified image" when I try to see the pitcures. After a while I get "memory card error". I can get all the pictures out (without taking the memory card out). After I format the card it's OK again. Any ideas? Thanks
I think the max supported size of storage on this camera is actually only 4GB, that could be the reason for the problem, if possible try borrowing a 8GB card and test to see if you are getting the same error after 4GB of data filling\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot SX210 IS Digital Camera
Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy.. It shows a lens error when turned on; asks to 'remove the lens cap' even if it is already removed. The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell. I purchased it from UK, and I'm n

When I turn on my Panasonic DMC-FX55 the lens comes out fine and the screen displays for 2 seconds but doesn't focus, it then goes blank except for the message 'Turn off then on again' - which doesn't work. The only way to get the lens to retract is to select 'Playback' - tun off then on, sometimes twice. The playback mode works fine.

So I just got the Fujifilm Finepix XP60 Series, it's working fine and all but whenever I press the playback button it blacks out. Sometimes it works but most times I have to try over and over again for it to work. For example I take a few pics and I press the playback button. First you see the little pink squares then it blacks out. I press the flash button on top for the screen to go back to taking pictures. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. Another example would be when it's off and I p

My Lumix DMC FZ30 use to work using a 4gb SDHC SanDisk card, but now says, "Memory card error please check the card". However, the card works fine in any other cameras. A small pocket Fujifilm camera for example. I was told to reformat the card in the camera, but I'm unable to use any part of the FZ30 camera while the card is inserted and on. Please help as I want to use my 4gb card and not just the 2gb ones which work fine so I know it's not a problem with the camera reading memory cards, just
Memory cards have a limited life. If you've been using it a lot and erasing it or formatting it, it probably is just worn out. Take it to a camera shop and try a new card. If that works, go to a discount store and buy a new one. It will cost less ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera
Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t
