Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Cannon Power Shot A520 Camera will not power the lens up when I turn it on. I get the message "No Image" on the viewing screen, but nothing else happens. Back Switch is set on camera symbol, but camera acts like it is set on view. I have installed new batteries and battery terminals are clean.

Hello, i have a panasonic bl-c131 that i would like to configure to be viewed by my phillips tv set in my bedroom, because i would like to set up the camera at my front door.

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take.

I changed the batteries in my Power Shot A720 IS recently when the low battery warning flashed, and had taken only two photos when the warning flashed again. I moved the mode switch to playback and the screen went dark "Change batteries now" appeared. I turned off the camera, set the mode switch to shooting, turned the camera back on and was able to take two more photos before the low battery warning returned and prevented any more picture taking. I purchased and installed new batteries and f

I have a Minolta Dimage 7Hi and get a 'card error' message when I turn it on, in the middle of the viewing screen. The camera acts like it takes a picture without the button being pressed, then the red light next to the card goes on and off for about 10 seconds. Then the camera shuts down. It repeats this when I turn the camera back on and doesn't respond to any other settings or button pressings. Can you help?

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!


The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

KODAK LS753: when the camera is powered up the screen comes on to set date and time. The selector five way switch can move between set and cancel. When the switch is pressed straight in nothing happens. I was thinking there may be a hard reset somewhere on the camera to clear this glitch. Cycling the power does not change anything.

My camera fell on my floor when I was trying to film a video. Now it is stuck with the lens out, and when I try to turn it on it makes a weird noise, stops, makes it again, makes a new 'bloop' powering off noise, and that's it. I can click the little play button in the square to view my pictures and it will make noise and turn on and I can go through my settings but it will not let me switch to actual camera/video mode!

I want a list of the likely different faults which can cause an Olympus C-5060Z not to power on. I'll do the rest. A wiring schematic would help too. I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely.

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when the camera is powered on but I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen and no image is captured when a pic is taken. I changed the batteries and it made no difference.


I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Hi, I have a Sony DSC-W100 cybershot camera that the mode switch has gotten flaky. If you just touch it, it switches modes and if you rapidly change modes back and forth from one end of the control to the other, it may work for a while and then gets flaky again. Acts like the switch has dirt in it. Can I buy the switch? Clean it? or should I just toss the camera? Jim Lofgren in Redmond, WA

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on. I've tried recharging the battery, changing memory cards, no memory card, switching settings and turning the on/off switch. Is there anything to be done or I do I just need to get a new camera?

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?

Why is my olympus e420 taking green tinted photos? I bought a new camera which I received yesterday, and it was until earlier, but has suddenly started taking yellowy/greeny tinted images. I've tried changing the settings, I've changed the camera modes, I reset the settings altogether and even changed lenses and yet the camera still takes tinted pictures, inside and outside. Also, when I switch the camera to live-view mode (shows exactly what the lens sees) it shows pretty much an entire green s

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).


Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera
