I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?

Hello. The flash on my Canon IXUS 980 IS seems unable to work. The camera is about 2 years old. I have contacted Canon who advised taking out the battery for at least 30 mins and fully recharging it, which yielded nothing helpful. Is this a common issue and can it be fixed cheaper than the minimum £60 that a Canon service shop requires? Thanks for any help.

I have had an Pentax Optio S10 auto focus camera for about 3 years and it hasn't missed a beat. But now it will not take photos in flash mode. I have tried the usual settings as per the manual, and noticed a previous posting of the same issue. The response was to recharge the battery, which currently I am doing. The indicator on the camera's LCD however shows the battery to be almost fully charged though. Would this be the same issue? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Graham

I can only take a few pictures on my camera before it either shuts itself off and/or won't turn on again.

Lost pictures I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 that I received for Christmas this year. I just bought a new Gateway Laptop to take on a trip. Up till now, the two have functioned just fine together.

As a precaution, I also back up my photos to a flash. Here's the issue: we took a three day trip out to Petra, Wadi Rum and Aqaba. While gone, I did

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When
