Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a KD200. After taking a picture, the image comes out very dark or black. I've already had it repaired for this problem 3 months ago and now it's doing it again!! Pentax never did explain on the work order what the problem was (it was still under warranty at the time).

Pentax problems... Hey there. I'm having problems with my pentax camera. The camera actually works great, but, I can't sync it up with my computer.

It has windows xp on it. I've never had problems installing a device before. I tried to add the hardware manually, over and over again with no luck. I heard s

I bought digital Canon EOS Rebel XT two years ago, and I have really big problem with AF. I got one half of the pictures fuzzy. Sometimes the green light is on, I took the picture and it is fuzzy. Next shot is fine. I never have this kind of problem with Canon Rebel ( not digital). Now I can't rely on Auto Focus at all. Please explain to me where is a problem. Thanks, Irene

Deleted pictures We purchased a Pentax OptoM40 camera and when we got home we found that all of the pictures that we had take on our vacation were deleted. Can you tell us how we can get them back. We had an older model camera and we wanted to update to the newer one that also takes movies, but we never ever had a problem of pictures being deleted. It seems that a lot of other people also had the same problem. PLEASE HELP US. WE LOST ALL OF OUR VACATION PICTURES. Thank you

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time. Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode. I fixed one of the cameras once by pushing buttons after connecting and disconnecting from the computer (and the camera worked okay for several months), but repeate

Pentax Did you ever get an answer on your pentax problem. I have a similar problem with my Pentax K10 - the Diaphragm release isnt working properly, my photos are dark as a result.


No.. someone sent me copies of photos of the mechanism. In my case, the little level that controls the aperature is not going back into place but no one seems to know how to take it apart and reset it. I will eventually take it apart very carefully ... Digital Cameras

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems. I think the camera is having CCD problems because I can't take pictures without them being black but I can see previous pictures just fine. I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I wer

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73 that I have had for many years now. I have never had any problems with the camera till now. It has never been dropped or anything, but the camera will not zoom in or out at all. I have researched this problem but have not had any luck finding a solution. Any suggestions?


It's possible with how old it is the zoom motor has worn out, I've seen that before with the older Sony digital cameras. It's possible for it to be repaired but it's more cost effective to get a new camera from my experience. Hope this helps. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

When I connect my camera to my USB port the camera screen says "establishing connection" but it never establishes. I've transferred pictures before onto this same computer and never had this problem. I even bought a new cable because I thought that might be the problem, and it's apparently not.
