Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Samsung S1060 digital camera is malfunctioning when i turn it on. The green light turns on for a few seconds and the screen remains blank, this is then followed by three odd-sounding beeps and then the camera turns off. It seems as though the shutters on the camera cannot open. I have tried replacing the batteries and connecting it to the computer and it made no difference, please help.


Answers :

Hello. I want you to turn on the camera and find the reset function in the menu. Push reset and and reset your camera to factory settings, like the day you got it. IF that doesn't solve the problem you may have dust in the shutter mechanism which any local repair shop can clean for you. Regards, Joe
Hello

Ok, here is something you can try to find out what the problem is.
Put the camera in review mode, then switch it on. If you can view the piics you took already, then this is a lens error, if the problem persists, we need to have a look at other options.

Let me know.

Also, please do not hessitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one!

Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do?

My Canon 5D mkI turns on ok, will focus, displays top and back, but it will not take a shot. I have two batteries, both which I have charged to full and tried (display shows full charge). I have also tried two seperate CF cards. I have tried cleaning all contacts. Still it won't take a photo. The shutter will work when I use the "clean sensor" function though. Also, I have reset all settings on the camera. Anyone know why the camera isn't firing off a shot?
