Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
The flash starts to charge, never reaches full charge but I hear a 'click' inside the body and charging begins again.
Sounds like you have problem with the charge storage capacitor arcing when it reaches a certain voltage. This could be due to dampness or a exposed wire or even a bad capacitor. The voltages are high so be careful if you take it apart. Try drying it in the sun or with a hair dryer.

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck. It has no juice at all now. At first I thought the computer inside was tripped. Maybe the salt water affected the batteries? What is the address to mail for repair? Do I have to pay ahead to look at? Is there a minimum charge. Monica [email protected] 619 593 8035

Kodak DX6490 Hi, I have a Kodak DX6490. The camera hasn?t been used for a while and upon charging the battery and switching the camera on to "auto", the green camera symbol starts flashing but both the screen and viewfinder remained blank. The camera gives a soft click, but the lens doesn't move and the camera doesn't respond to any of the buttons. After a couple of seconds, the screen starts to glow very faintly. This glow is very obvious in a darkened room, but invisible in daylight. There

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures. The camera is giving me a "zoom error" message. This problem started when the batteries where running out of charge. The problem is not resolving even when I put in fully charged batteries.
You may need to use some light "force" to manipulate the lens barrel into its proper orientation. Try a combination of turning it on and helping the barrel to rotate one way or the other. Also try a little manipulation when the camera is shut off, to ... Digital Cameras
My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not. I sent it to Canon repair who wanted to charge me more than it was worth to repair but that was before they even started to analyse the problem. I decided to buy a brand new 20d. Put in the battery and the CF card and exactly the same thing has happened. I can get the cameras to come on but when I press the buton the flash jumps

I have a Kodak M1063 that has never been dropped or abused. I have had it for a couple of years and it has worked flawless. A couple of weeks ago it started malfunctioning as it would open the shutter and then close it immediately. I thought that maybe it was time for a new battery and I bought one and charged it. The camera still does the same thing. It powers up...opens the shutter then close Immediately. please advise

Slow camera Thank you for the suggestions. I got the camera about 6 years ago and it worked fine. The problem started recently, over the last few months. It cannot be related to the card, or the processor. They were the same when it worked well. It is charging up very slowly. I think it is either a capacitor or a rechargable battery that lost performance over time. Do you know anything about the inside battery?
Unfortunately, the externals you use are AA's so I'm sure you've tried new ones there. \015\012The internal battery (or capacitor) is not worth attempting to replace for a camera of that age. You may end up spending more to replace the battery ... Fuji FinePix A303 Digital Camera

You don't normally need to turn any item on to charge it-it charges quicker turned off.
