How do I get a manual. My Daughter-in-law gave me her old camera but I do not know how to use it. She can't remember where it is or even if she still has it. It has been a year and I would like to use it.

I have a JVC Everio HDD camcorder, model number gz-mg330rex which is approx 2 years old. The camera has had little use, been well looked after and carefully stored. Recently I went to use the camera using battery power and the camera would not switch on, so I tried the camera with the mains lead and it worked fine. I assumed there was a problem with the battery , so I bought a new battery from JVC. When I tried the new battery the camera would still not turn on. Do you have any ideas what could

I just bought a refurbished canon A590 digital 8.0 meg, 4x optical zoom, LCD display screen camera via eBay. after only shooting 40 shots, some of them using flash (like 3 or 4 shots out of 40), i found the camera showed battery used up sign. then, it refused to shoot any more. i checked the voltage of the batteries with my old VOM. the batteries were not used up. the meter read they still had 1.35 out of 1.5 volts. i'm just disappointed that the camera can't use up the rest of the

We found an old Sony Cybershot DSC - S30 camera laying around in our office. I was going to let my young son play with it as he would like a digital camera. I kept getting the memory stick error message. I ordered a new memory stick PRO Duo for it with a 4GB disk. It still shows the error message. Neither the old 4MB stick or the new Duo stick will allow the camera to format the memory stick. Any ideas??

We have a Kodak 8.2 mega pixel camera that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I took pictures and then uploaded them onto my computer. Unplugged everything. When I went back to delete the pictures off the camera card, the camera would not turn on or do anything. I tried to charge the battery but when everything is plugged in it is still totally dark. We purchased a new battery thinking that was the problem and still nothing. When the charger in plugged in there is nothing - no lights at all.

Went into the water, about 5 feet and after that the camera wouldn't turn on. I have Stylus 1030 SW. I have had the camera for about a year. It was working fine in the water, and I would rinse it in fresh water, like they said, but this time I came out of the ocean and it turned off and stayed off. Do I need a new battery? This battery costs $39. in retail store! My battery is a year old! Please e-mail:Thanks-June

I have an old Daveco TR-05-A tripod I inherited. It was bought for use with an old 8mm Sony Handycam, but I would like to simply use it for a still camera. However, when I take the top assembly off, I cannot see the usual screw needed to sit the camera on top of, only a round ball-style pivot for the 8mm camcorder mechanism. Please advise.

Recently had to ship my canon Digital RebelXS/ 1000 digital camera for repair. It would keep showing me an error 99 code. the camera is only 7 mths old. I'm just learning to use this camera.. Is it something I could avoid or done to give me this code. I asked the place I had to ship it to what canon had done. All I was told there was a short in the camera and they cleaned the lenses. I really like to find out what shorted out.

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB). The next time I went to use the camera, the USB storage screen shows up and I can't get it to go back to the original setting to take photos. I can still download any images from the camera but can't get off that menu. I've tried the reset

Lens error I have a Canon Powershoot SD1000 and it was working fine until one day the lens stopped retracting. Now it doesn't retract and I get a Lens Error, Restart Camera message. I looked at other websites to get help and tried some of the ways they suggest to fix it. Not sure if its working, because it still gives the same message and makes a noise sounding like its trying to retract then gives me the Canon welcome picture.

I bought new batteries from local store (one from Walmart and one from Meijer) but both would not work in my Cybershot DSC-H55. On powering up, I get the message "For use with compatible battery only" then it shuts down. The battery that came with my camera still works fine. I thought I had bought bad batteries but I returned for exchange, and 2 replacement batteries from 2 different stores still shows the same error message.

I have a Digital Rebel 40 D camera less than 1 year old and I removed the memory card and I cannot get it to go back into the slot. The eject button is still depressed after I depressed it to eject the memory card out of it. This is the first time this has happened. I had the original Canon Rebel with over 100,000 pictures taken on it and this never happened. This camera has less than 5,000 shoots and not it is unusable. Any suggestions ? Thank you, Terry


Im no expert, but i would use a flashlight to look inside the memory card holder and see if anythings messed up, and maybe jiggle the eject button a bit, and just maybe the button doesnt come up again until you push in the memory card. give it a litt ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?


It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

I have a 4 1/2 year old Nikon 8800VR. It has always worked and except for being rather sluggish, has performed nicely. After a smallish bump, the lens seemed to get stuck - it tried to come out but just whirred until an "err" message came up (not lens err). My RepairTech warranty would still be in effect if Repairtect still existed but it does not seem to, and the only estimate I have is for $300. My question - is this reasonable, and given the age of the camera, is it worth it? And, is there an

I recently bought a Canon powershot SX200is and I was using it to photograph my 4 year old grandson's birthday party, however a lot of the shots were blurred, these were mainly taken indoor, when I checked the camera settings I found the speed settings were ranging from 1/60sec to 1/6sec. I was shooting in P and AV, however I then switched back to automatic (auto) and took shots with the full range of options and still found some shots blurred, I think the problem is, the camera is trying to foc

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

So I replaced it with the same battery #CR2016. Now it still has no display. I double-checked the polarity and it is correct. I took the battery out and then replaced it several times. I checked the battery with a voltmeter -it reads 3V. The watch is clean inside, with no sign of corrosion like from a leaking battery, etc. The old b
