Hi, My Nikon Coolpix S3000 flash has stopped working after only 3 weeks of having the camera and an aeroplane icon is also showing on the display. I have had the camera at elevation and in humidity, but with a new camera I would think this would not be a problem. I have also charged the camera totally but the flash still does not work. Please advise me any fix. Many thanks Shelley
Sounds like you somehow put the camera in "airplane" mode which keeps the camera from interfering with the electronics on an airplane. Change the mode. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!
Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off. Flat battery perhaps, so charged battery overnight and tried again with similar results. Lens still part way out, maybe some whirring noises, screen flashes but then camera switches off. Any ideas? Dead battery / broken charger? - or problem with camera? And how to check (I only have the one battery)
All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that wer ... Ricoh Caplio R5 Digital Camera
My photos always upload to my MAC automatically when I plug the camera into the computer. Today, however, the camera comes on, the screen comes on the camera and it says "busy," the screen then goes black, a red light in the bottom right hand corner of the back of the camera begins to flash, and eventually it even stops. I did re-charge the battery and it still did the same thing. Do you have any idea what is going on?

I bought a Polaroid i733 Digital Camera for my daughter in March, 2007. A couple of weeks ago when she went to change the batteries, the lens got stuck half way out. Now it won't work. By the looks of things on line, it looks like this is an inherant problem with this model. Is it still covered under warranty? If not, any idea what the approximate cost to fix it would be?
