Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My cannon mvx200i won't accept the tapes any more. There is a red symbol of a tape flashing on the screen. it was working fine, everything else seemed to be working fine, I took one tape out and from there it wouldn't accept the tapes. What is the problem?

Answers :

First off how long have you owned the camera? I would suggest you contact canon and have the camera serviced. There is most likely a broken/defective part in the camera. Follow this link to find the nearest service center. I am assuming you are located in europe.

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted. The best way I can describe it is as if the image appears that I took a photo off something on the tv, with a series of horizontal lines running across the image. The video capture seems to work fine though. Can you offer any sug

Problem fixed Hi folks. Just want to let you know the problem with my camera with no image on screen is fixed. I took it to a repair guy and he had to open the camera and service the shutter. Seemed there was some dust or grit affecting the operation of the shutter. It was cleaned and camera is working fine. Thanks for all the advice. Hope my solution is helpful to you out there.

Good for you. Thanks for letting us know ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Kodak Easyshare C875 will not accept the SD card. It worked for about 1 year and I can put the SD card in but the camera does not recognize it and before I had this problem it seemed like there was some type of spring that was in the slot so when you took the card out of the slot it came out easy.

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings. I took the batteries out and the memory card for a half hour and put them back in. None of this worked. The best i can explaing is there horizpntal lines through the pictures. Any ideas??? My warranty is long expired. Just wonder if it's worth getting fixed or would it be better to purchase a new camera.

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.

Electronic switch under shutter button is defective and you need to replace it under following part number.. (please select part number according to cabinet color of your DSC-P8)1-477-770-11 SWITCH BLOCK, CONTROL (SILVER) 1-477-770- ... Digital Cameras

A640 Lock-up Hi, The camera was working fine up until today when I took it out of the case, it was stuck, locked-up somehow. I haden't used it in a couple of days (had never had a problem with it before), and now, the only sign of life when pressing the ON/OFF button is the small green light underneeth turns on but nothing else powers up or happens. The only way to get the green light off again is to take the batteries out. Also, the lens is stuck open, and the zoom partially out. What should I

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC L27 camera. I have tried unsuccessfully to transfer my pictures from the camera via a USB cord (3 different ones) and have had no problems in the past.

My D70 (which I just bought on ebay) is having problems with AF. At time the AF works fine but then for no reason it refuses to work for hours to days. I have two bodies so I can swap lenses to see that its not the lens. If I switch to manual focus, it the camera works fine. I can see the little pins around the lens fitting retract when I switch the camera to manual. Seems like a problem with the internals that control AF. No other problems are apparent to me. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a contact issue - either they are not making consistently or they are just dirty. I'd start with a good contact cleaner (Radio Shack or photo store) and spray the snot out of both the camera contacts and lense (making VERY sure to protec ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

The problem is that when I try to connect it to my computer to retrieve the pictures on the camera, my computer says that my camera isn't detected.

I seem to be having problems connecting my Fujifilm Finepix J210 with my computer. When the hardware wizard auto intalls the drivers it shows a message that there may be problems using the hardware.

We have also tried other cameras/memory cards on THIS computer and they work fine.

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.
