Blurry/strippy photos I just got to Bilbao in Spain doing a photographic research project but every time and try and take a photo and view it comes out strippy with lots of little lines really close together and interspersed with a couple of fat ones too!! I've taken it to some photo shops today but there is apparently no camera repair places as such in the whole city! My spanish isn't the best but some of the assistants seemed to think it's the focus.

Dear Experts: I got the 850SW over a year ago, I only used it less than 10 times around pool or water park. I never immersed the cemera in water though, I doubt it was really waterproof like they claimed. Three weeks ago, my friend borrowed it for snorkeling in Hawaii for a couple of minutes. then the camera couldn't be turned on: every time I pressed the power button, it kept on beeping a few times then went off. If I pre-set to picture review, the camera is normal, just when I change to shooti

Hey! i have an arri 300 watt lamp, it got knocked over on a set and now doesnt work. I have removed the bulb but I dont't think I removed it correcty as a couple of broken bits of, what feels like plaster, came out with it! was wondering if somebody could tell me if these bits that came out are part of the bub or the actual lamps fittings? thanks a lot, Andrew


Might be part of the lamp as a lot of professional light fixtures use lamps with some ceramic parts that can break off and look like plaster. Hopefully if you can clean out the parts, check for a good connection, and you should be able to replace th ... Digital Cameras

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the l ... Canon IXUS 80 IS Digital Camera

Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message. I've been trying again. Using Uniross NiMH batteries, 2700mAh, previously used only a little, newly recharged. Menu indicates that the camera knows that's what it's

Stuck Lens I fell on my camera just recently and the lens is stuck open half way. When you power it on it moves a bit to the side and up, then to the other side and up and then beeps couple of times. You can view all the pictures and see the opening screen when you turn it on on picture-taking mode but it won't open up completely. Is it possible to fix? If so how?

Even with new batteries, the screen says batteries exhausted on Coolpix L18. Sometimes by switching the position of the batteries, it turns on.

Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics. Also, the camera has locked up while I was trying to set menu options several times over the last couple of days. I have simply turned it off and then back on again to get it w

Low battery? I got my camera today, setup the setup menus, and had started to check out the features when the low battery warning came up. So I replaced the batteries and tried to turn the camera on but now all I get is the green light comes on for 3 seconds, goes off and approx. 5 seconds later the light flashes on, then off and the camera beeps 3 times, and nothing after that.

Lens error When I turn on Nikon Cool Pix S230, it tries to adjust the lens for a little bit then it says lens error.  It is only a few months old.  I think what caused the problem was the last time I took  a picture there was a strobe light in the background which caused the picture to look funny.  Then a few days later when I tried to work the camera I got this problem.  thank you!

Repair I have a Vivitar 5100/4xzoom. The battery door got broken and I sent it in for repair. They sent it back-finally,unrepaired,& said they needed my phone number so they could call me with estimate...why didn't they just send a postcard? I had to ship it back another time,another $8.00. This was in April. I have heard nothing. Today I tried to call the phone number and was told it wasn't issued.


I had the same problem and took it into the dealer who firmly taped the battery door shut to get battery contact and told me that a new door would cost more than a new camera. It worked! ... Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera
