Sony DSC-S500 My camera is 10 months old. It's been working perfectly up until today. When I turn it on the lens closes. When I turn it off the lens opens.

I have an Olympus D-460 Zoom 1.3 megapixel which I've had about a year. I bought it used and it was working fine up until about a week ago. Whenever I snapped a picture the button seemed to get stuck and nothing would happen and also the flash wouldn't go off. I would have to close the lens and re-open it again to get it working. Do you think that maybe the batteries I'm using are too weak? Let me know. Thanks.
Yes, you are right. The batteries have gone out of power for sure. I had a similar problem with my cam sometime before. The battery actually doesnt gets 100% discharged. Itworks whenever you repower the cam. But when taking a picture it just needs mo ... Digital Cameras
Sony DSC-W70 digital camera - Lens attempts to open when pressing the power button but fails with a message to turn off and back on again. Bought a new battery and still does the same thing.

Greetings, I have a Canon Powershot A640 and my lens won't fully open when I turn the camera on. It only opens slightly and appears to be stuck. Is there an easy fix for this?

A640 Lock-up Hi, The camera was working fine up until today when I took it out of the case, it was stuck, locked-up somehow. I haden't used it in a couple of days (had never had a problem with it before), and now, the only sign of life when pressing the ON/OFF button is the small green light underneeth turns on but nothing else powers up or happens.

Screen blackness I have the same problem. The lens is NOT stuck - it does deploy and the lens cover opens. I have replaced the batteries, tried a differant memory stick, and I turn it on and off to reboot. None of these solutions work. The camera is only a year or so old - it doesn't get a lot of use so it is not mishandled. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions
You still have a bad lens the internal focus gear is out of alignment. or is offset. a repaired or new lens is required. Sorry :( ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Hi - I recently bought an iMac OS X Leopard. iPhoto works really well with my Sony camera to USB port. However for iMovie I tried linking my Sony DigitalHandycam Model DCR-PC100E to Firewire socket and nothing happens at all. Camcorder works fine in isolation and with different leads works on my old Vaio PC and to television. Can I get a "converter" or do I need to buy a camcorder that appears on Apple website as compatible ? I hope you can help. Regards

I read your solution to the Sony DSC-T1 black screen problem, but the link you provided did not work, even when I copied it into my browser. I know from all the other posts on the website that I have the identical problem and would love to get it fixed, but I found no reference to "free repair" anywhere on the Sony website. What am I doing wrong? I am in the process of trying the phone support now, but I have no reason to expect that to work any better. I will let you know if I am successful. Th
