Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
Rick very simple, why with the software available can we not password protect cameras and video equipment against theft.
ie when power switched off or battery changed then unit will not operate without correct pass word.
Having to enter a password every time you switch on your camera will cause you to miss a great many shots. Nobody would want that.

I changed the batteries in my Power Shot A720 IS recently when the low battery warning flashed, and had taken only two photos when the warning flashed again. I moved the mode switch to playback and the screen went dark "Change batteries now" appeared. I turned off the camera, set the mode switch to shooting, turned the camera back on and was able to take two more photos before the low battery warning returned and prevented any more picture taking. I purchased and installed new batteries and f

Both your camera and the battery have a warranty, so I would call Canon and they may replace your battery out of goodwill even though it has been more than 30 days, if you provide your proof of purchase, this is always a possibility...to avoid having ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

I have a sony HDR-HC1e camcorder. It works perfectly until I change the battery or switch between mains and battery, it then refuses to start. Not even a hard reset will start it. Leaving it with no power for a hour results in it restarting correctly when battery reinserted although sometimes loses clock setting. I've checked the internal cell and it reads about 3V.

I have a 3 year old Sony DCR-DVD202E Camcorder which has worked perfectly up until yesterday, when the lens cover refused to open. Other thsn this the camera powers up normally and the LCD screen shows a white dot where light is entering through the cover I have tried changing the battery, switching the camera on and off many times, powering it from the AC adaptor and, at the suggestion of Sony, resetting the camera. None of this has worked. It is possible to open the cover manually, so it is

My DSC-H9 will not display stored pictures or video. When I push the button to switch from picture taking to picture viewing it shuts off. Changed battery, memory stick, did "reboot", pulled battery for 30 seconds. Nothing made any difference. I can plug in to PC and view or pull pictures off. It's like the mode button is also a power button.

Switching it on and off, taking battery and sd card out and restarting were the kind of things i tried but no luck. Please help.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.
These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt.
