\015\012Do not try to switch ON the player, otherwise it will harm your device.\015\012
\015\012Send your device for repair, there is no other way to fix the problem. \015\012
\015\012Good Luck and have a nice day.
This can still be fix but it requires part replacement already since there's a big chance that some of the parts of it got bad after it got soak to water like another electronic device, so it will be better if you take it to a service center or repair center near you.

Hi, I have a canon sx200 and yesterday I took my memory card - Kingston 8GB - and got some pics printed at one of those albertsons machines and since then when I try to take a picture it says " card locked" on the screen and it won't work (it won't let me erase the pic either...) how can I fix it? Did the machine do it to my card? (I have used teh same machine before and never had this happen) Thank you, Bianca

My camera was accidentally thrown in the washing machine with laundry and was washed. Have let it sit for a few days to let it dry out and now it won't turn on. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?


A few days is nowhere near enough. If you've tried to turn it on, the circuits are probably fried. The soapy water would definitely leave a film over everything including the inside of the lens elements. You should have buried the camera in a bowl of ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80 Digital Camera

Hi there, I dropped my Casio Exilim (EX - Z80) a while ago and the lens got stuck half out. However after a while it fixed itself and I can record videos on it perfectly but when I take photos they come out too bright, as if I'm taking photos in the sun with the flash on. Is there an easy way to fix this or am I going to have to spend a fortune? Thanks, Hollee

I bought a new canon 50d in july and used it through the summer sporadically in preparation for an overseas trip. Periodically got an error 30 message on the LCD but always ok after turning camera on/off. In India for 3 weeks in Oct. Got the error 30 screen 4-5 days a day during heavy shooting. Internet says error 30 is shutter problem. Does camera store (Ritz Camera in DC) fix this? Camera is barely 4 months old. What should I do? Please keep explanations simple since I am technology challenged

Camera's screen is blank. Its currently stuck in video mode so i can record and view it on the computer but i cannot see what i am recording via the touch screen. i thought it was the screen so i got a replacement of ebay but that still hasnt fixed it. This all occurred from a minor drop. It was sitting on its bottom on the table and got tapped forward and has had a blank screen ever since.. approx 2years old.


It might have a hairline crack or broken connection in one of the circuitry inside. I'm sure you might be able to find it coz you were able to replace the screen your self (?) good luck! ... Sony DSC-T70 Digital Camera

I have what seems like a very easy thing to fix, but the estimate I got for fixing it seems much too high ($175). I dropped my Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 camera a while ago and now the battery lid won't stay closed. I need a replacement for that and the camera will be as good as new. Any suggestions? Is this harder than I think it is?
