You have probably got a stuvk paddle ... and they are easy to pull apart to get to but can be frustrating to re-assemble, usual causes are outside parking near trees :) Good luck.... have fun!! (P.S. would most likely be the diverting panel in the front but without looking hard to tell)

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor
Hi Jason. First of all, depending on the age of your camera and the warranty you purchased, this camera may be under warranty which would result in Nikon fixing it for free. \015\012\015\012Here is a free downloadable manual for your camera ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
I have cyber-shot camera dsc-w55 each time I turn my camera on and it says "access" while the lens is going in and out and finally says "turn the power off and on again". I have used the compressed air and tapped it on my palm many times and it's still not working. I went on vacation in Jamaica and I think maybe

Zoom lens has started making a clicking sound. Digital zoom is not always in focus. I have tried air spray to no avail, thinking some grains of dirt may be causing it. The camera still works, but I am concerned it may get worse. Is this repairable?

The shutter release button/manual zoom lever broke off when it was bumped accidently against a sharp metal corner. I still have the part. Can this part be refitted? replaced? It appears that very small fastenling points have been damanged. Does BenQ have a repair service? I have more or less resigned myself to buying a new pocket digital camera thinking that repair costs would be prohibitive. But I have found the camera has worked exceptionally well for me and not happy parting with it. Any a

Hi, the flash card card-eject lever spring is broken and wont eject the card. u have to manually push the card in place and pull the card out. the lever stays up until u shut the card slot door.once the card is in place the camera can read the card if images already exist. but...it will not record an image and shows up as blank on the screen after the shutter takes the image? is this the cause of the broken eject lever. thanks.
I have the same problemI think that the reason that the not record the image is that the card slot door is pushing down on the card eject lever and ejecting the card when the door is closedThe only answer I can think of is to shorten the leverdavidh ...

Disappearing photos I went on holiday to Belgium recently and halfway through the trip I went to look through the photos I'd taken to find that they had all vanished! Earlier in the day I had been flicking through the settings and I pressed the create folder option but I exited before making a new one (I think) but appart from that I can't think of anything that would have happened to it to make it delete all my photos. Please help!
It is unlikely your images are lost but I would advise not to use the card until you recover them. If you purchase a quality brand flash card reader (eg. Lexar or Sandisk) you often receive an image recovery program with it. You basically plug the re ... Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera

I have a Sony S980 digital camera. The camera powers up but a message (Switch camera off and on again) comes on the screen. I think the lens is sticking instead of coming out but unfortunately I do not know what to do next. Do you think it can be fixed? Thank you very much in advance.

I have a Canon 20D with a IS 70-300mm lens that after a dozen or so photos won't focus/shoot. I just got my hands on both the lens and 20D (bought it from a good friend which says this has never happend before) AND I don't know what the problem. I think that the electrical contact is not working proper. What do you think?
If it won't focus, won't trip the shutter, and sometimes won't turn off, the shutter release switch is defective and needs to be replaced. This is not user replaceable, and will cost about $125 at a repair shop. ... Digital Cameras

Missing Pictures I inserted an old memory card into my new Vivicam 5199, now my old pictures have gone missing but not all of them and don't think i've deleted them. I don't think i have formatted my camera which states if i do i will lose all my pictures because i still have some of them. When i viewed my pictures i came across a screen which says 'file format error! Is this anything to do with my missing pitures?
Hi danievo:First, make sure that you never insert another card formatted in another camera to one which is different, even same brands may be different. Doing this can corrupt all the pictures on the card. Just inserting the card in the ... Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera
Fuji Finepix I get black lines across images... I have studied previous answers and think this may be a terminal problem! If it is the CCD, a) what is a CCD and b) is it fixable, or should I give up and get a new camera. I think this camera is over 2 years old. Pity, it has been very good for this ignorant user!
