Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When I power down my GE E1035 10.1 mP, the lens retracts just fine, but the upper eyelid doesn't close at all. This only started in the last few days.

Hi Challenger

What happens about 75% of the time is that either some dirt particles get stuck in the mechanism or something sticky got caught.

Admitadly , I'm not very familiar with GE camera's as we don't get them on the other side of the pond , but what I would normally suugest is the following.

If possible , try to close the "shutter" mechanism manually.If there is no resistance to movement then the spring mechanism has failed which is not user fixable.

If you are able to close it , apply some 90% rubbing alcohol to the outside of the shutter with a q-tip and open and close it a few times to loosen any particles and remove any sticky substances.

If this does not work , but there is resistance when you move the shutter there is a problem with the release mechanism which unfortunately is also not user serviceable.

Kind Regards
Hello. The usual cause of this problem is dust in the mechanism. The best solution is to take the camera into a repair shop for a cleaning. If you have several camera shops in the area call around for the best price. Regards, Joe

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up

Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle positi ... Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera

This is to inform that I am having Casio Digital Camera Exilim EX-Z500 for last few years. The same was giving very good pictures, but last week, it suddenly started malfunctioning. Whenever, we took indoor pictures, they were coming out well as per attached pictures (CIM2831 & CIM2826) but when the camera was taken outside in the day light, though the picture was very clear on the LCD screen but after clicking, the picture is overshadowed with white light (as per other attached pictures).

Some things to try:\0121. Go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.\0122. Check the ISO setting....you may have it set too high for outdoor pictures.\0123. Check the "exposure compensation"...it should be at "0". ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

Canon ZR200 memory card say ''card error'' when inserted. Card is not locked. I have formatted it. Have used 3 different sizes of cards. Sometimes it will say ''card error'' then start working a couple of days later as if nothing was wrong. Last card used worked for 13 pics then started ''card error'' next time I turned it on. Currently it just says ''card error'' all the time.

Sounds like the contacts for the cards are dirty. Turn off the camera and remove the batteries before doing the following.\015\012\015\012Try taking a piece of card stock (or a manilla folder) and cut it to the size (width only) of your ... Digital Cameras

Power Over the last few weeks I have had issues with the batteries. I found that the "Eveready" brand certainly doesnt work (I am currently in India and it is hard to find anything here!) and I just went through 3 sets of Duracells but after a short period of time it tells me to change the batteries. I just changed them with new Duracells but when I turn the camera on it wont let me get past that initial little birdy which is the start up screen. I also just noticed that my zoom lens thinger is

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it

I have the camcorder Sony DCR-TRV25E. Last Friday I was at the ocean and made home video on the beach. I was not close to water, but the breeze blew from the ocean and air was very moist. In the evening I tried to make video again, but the screen of the camcorder (camera on) remained black, though the player in the camcorder works well. My camcorder was in the dry home several days, but it is not working.

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

You probably got some condensation on the lens from going in and outside. You should be able to go to a Wolf Camera or similar store and have it cleaned. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
