My FZ18 will not zoom. Stuck at wide angle. A msg will sometimes flash when first turned on...CAMERA WILL RETURN TO PREVIOUS ZOOM SETTING...or something like that. It functions otherwise.

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?


I'm not sure what is relevant and what isn't but... Two days ago I tried taking a picture on my timer and all of them came out blurry. I wasn't sure why this was so I started poking around on the camera and decided to reset all factory settings. Then that evening I tried to upload my pictures to my computer as usual. The software (Picasa) locked up. I tried taking the camera out of the cradle and turning it on but it wouldn't turn on. I rebooted my computer and tried turing the camera on

Sometimes a camera software upgrade will help, but it is hard to find software online. I first would look on manufacture's website to see if there is any driver updates you can download to your pc, then do the same with picasa software. Also make sur ... Digital Cameras

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

With our panasonic DMC-LZ5, first we got a message saying replace batteries, which we did (with new ones). Now, the screen is all white with a message saying please turn camera off and then on again.

"whiteout" My exlim started to give what I'd describe as "whiteout" - ie pics just come out as if totally overexposed - when in the Himalayas trying to capture snow scenes. I resolved the problem by zooming in slightly for each pic, but this sol'n has now failed, and even at max zoom the pics are no good. I've run through the settings trying to ensure that all are reset to factory default - and have run out of ideas..... Seeing past correspondence about trying to get these fixed - esp near Cairn

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works properly. Unfortunately this seems to happen almost everytime the camera is turned off.

The problem is the internal battery that powers the storage of time and date. If the camera is unused for a while, it will discharge. You must put a freshly charge battery into the camera and leave it with the power turned off for 24 hours to charge ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera

The battery is fully charged. When I turn my camera on, it zooms out, then zooms in, then zooms out, then zooms in, etc. After doing this for about a minute, it finally stops and the screen reads ''Turn camera off and on again.''
