Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

HI, I have a Canon Powershot Sd 790 IS and it totally quit working on me so I took it all apart and then put it back together and now it powers on okay, and the lense opens and extends, but the image is blurry. I'm thinking there is a reset somewhere so that the camera knows when it is focused and then stays that way. Am I right or is there another problem? If I'm right, what do I have to do to reset it? Thanks Marty


Answers :

This is probably a problem with the focusing ring. The focusing ring is inside the lens assembly, and there is a ribbon connector going to the main board. There's a chance that the connector is slightly misaligned, or loose. Another problem could be that there a bit of dust, dirt, lint, or sand that's worked it's way into the lens assembly, and binding up the focusing ring, which is controlled by small electromagnets, and can get bound up. You can try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly from the front, in the hope of freeing it up.
\015\012Since you're comfortable opening up the camera and working on it, I'd get in and check the ribbon connector, and spray the lens out as best you can.
\015\012Good luck, and hope this helps.

My Dimage A1 camera has been fuctioning perfectly. Recently, I changed from JPEG to RAW and took several images. I now am attempting to return to JPEG without success. I believe I am following instructions correctly on pages 80, 81, & 82 of the Instruction Manual, but I apparently am missing a step or two somewhere. When I click on "Image Size" and "Quality" in the Menu Section, either nothing happens or it pops back to the previous selection. When I right click on the Size and Quality, aga

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

Problem I was taking a photograph of my CCTV camera with infra red night vision. The screen went blurred and then blank. After a few mins the full picture returned but is now a mirror image and upside down! Do you think the infra red is the cause, or is it just coincidental? Can the problem be rectified? I've tried the reset button but nothing happens.

Hi, I wrote in a couple of days ago about my camera resetting every time I turn it on. It's a Casio Exilim EX-S500. It appeared that the battery wasn't connecting right. I bought a new battery, thinking it might be the battery itself, but it's not. It's just not catching when I push it in. Is there a way to fix this? It doesn't appear that anything is broken/missing in the battery compartment. Thanks in advance for your help.

I can copy images on and off the CF cards on my computer so I am assuming it must be the camera. Can I reset the camera is some way ?

KODAK LS753: when the camera is powered up the screen comes on to set date and time. The selector five way switch can move between set and cancel.

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted. I have used rechargeable batteries since the camera was new (approx 3 yrs) and have tested the batteries as V.good. So i'm assuming that the problem is with the camera somewhere. Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or

Image quality Hi. When I'm taking photos and set my exposure manually on my Canon 20D, the image looks right exposed on my LCD screen, but when I download all the photos on my PC, all the photos are VERY DARK.

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.

DSC P51 Trying to decide whether my camera is suffering from the defective CCD imager problem. I currently have a black image at all times, as if the shutter is closed. I removed the MS and reset the camera which didn't affect anything. On the Sony site it says to take a movie clip with sound then replay it. When I did that, it didn't replay the image and I heard no sound either. Does hearing no sound still constitute a prob with the CCD imager?
