Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

What do you think could be wrong with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3, everytime you switch it on after about 2 minutes, it just turns off on its own?


Answers :

That sounds like the power-saving feature that all digital cameras have. In the setup menu, usually under something called economy or ECO or something similar, you can set the camera to shut off at 2min./5min/10min/or not at all.

My sony cybershot dsc-t200 will not turn on. None of the buttons or switches work. The battery is charged. For a while, it wouldn't turn on unless I put the battery on the charger for a few minutes first. Then it would work for a little while, but after turning it on and off a couple of times, it would die again. Now it just doesn't turn on at all. Any ideas? Could it be the battery?
