Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I have a nikkor 18-200 lens. the outermost ring screws into the lens glass ring with a few very tiny screws. the screws loosened and the cap fell off. nothing is broken (though auto focus no longer works with this off) but there is a solid plastic ring that covers the screw heads and i cannot see a way to access the screw heads to screw them back into the lens.
it would be a simple procedure if i could access them.

When turned on lense would only retract partially and then turn off. took it apart. I have it to where the camera will now go on, am able to take a photo (all normal) except I cannot get the lense to "attach" to the camera properly. Cylindrical lense. three screws protruding from it. not sure if the lense mounts on a black ring on the front or under the ring. The "in out" mechanism works but it will not grab the lense (cover?) to move out then retract. Seems to need to attach under the ring but

How to disassemble the camera? I have unscrewed all the visible screws, but still cannot take off the back cover. It seems to be still fixed near the external flash plug. In the LX2 section there is a guide, but it starts with the words "remove the back cover". Are there any differences in the way how LX2 and LX3 are assembled?

I wish to remove the write protection from my Sony handycam so I can remove files from it via the PC, but so far I haven't found any way this can be done. I cannot access my files on the actual camera as the screen is broken so nothing is visible on it when I turn on the camera. Is there any way I can remove the write protection without having access to the buttons on the camera?

Fuji F50fd suddenly has only a white screen when turned on. No display at all. It still takes photos, however you cannot see them or see if you are zooming or see any menus, etc. Camera was in a case in my purse, not dropped or damaged in any way.

I have a Fujifilm Discovery 312 Zoom camera but cannot figure out how to unload/load it. That is, I can open the back, but a film canister that is in it (from having been put in many years ago) does not readily come out. It is seated in such a way that I cannot see how to release it.

Question: Are there other ways of deleting pictures from the cam aside from doing it manually? If the pics were accidentally deleted, how can we retrieve them?
