Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
Fiji Finepix F401 - I have had great success with the above camera but it has suddenly developed what I think is a sensor problem.
The viewfinder displays a badly blurred and distorted picture which is green and purple in colour.
The camera will no longer take any still or video pictures.
To make matters worse, I recommended this particular camera to my father and his has now developed the same problem.
Both cameras are out of guarantee.
I am sorry sir, this is due to extreme expsoures high temperatures and sun. Also please mind that ur CCD sensor has to be replaced.

My sony DSC-H50 looks like crazy. I was taking some photos and videos, suddenly the camera was not able to make videos, it was only in standby mode. I pressed some times the button to start record but the camera did not work. I restarted the camera a lot of times and it start to work, but a I lost the old photos and videos. When I try to download the photos appears some strange folders in the camera, like ▀∙╥∙2.+6π. How can I recover my old photos and videos? Thanks

Video duration I have a GE A835. I want to take video. It shows that I can only take thirty minutes with a 1 gig card. The only thing that I can think of is that there is some reason it is putting the files on the camera memory instead of the card. I have used all the settings I can find to put video on card. I know that it has to take longer than that. My PHONE will take 14 hours. I would be happpy with less quality for more time. HELP

Everytime my boyfriend tries to take a video the camera stops after about 3 seconds and then a red exclamation point pops up and only goes away when he turns the camera off and then turns it on again. how can we stop this problem from happening again so that he can take longer videos? thanks.

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time. Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode. I fixed one of the cameras once by pushing buttons after connecting and disconnecting from the computer (and the camera worked okay for several months), but repeate

I have a canon powershot SD200 digital elph camera. The metal piece on the back of the camera which moves the camera between functions (view photos to shoot video to take photo) no longer works properly all the time.

Olympus FE-280 I can no longer take photos with my camera! When I turn it on it makes some weird noises as the zoom lens adjusts, and then the viewer screen is blurry when it comes on.

I have a problem with a Cannon Power Shot A610 as follows: The monitor is dark when the camera is turned on and the camera will not take photos. The playback works OK for reviewing photos previously taken before this problem developed. A Best Buy troubleshooter inspected it aand said the sensor in the cameera was bad and that I should buy a new camera because of the repair cost. I need a second opinion before making this decision. Thanks. e-mail address: [email protected]

I have a Canon PowerShot SD500, Digital ELPH. It has been WONDERFUL! Since I have used it a lot and for years traveling, I am wondering how much longer it will work. Is there an average lifespan for these cameras? What camera should I replace it with if I want comparable quality and function? What symptoms will develop when it is reaching the age that it will need to be replaced? I hope it lasts forever as it is a wonderful camera. The only thing it doesn't do is video.

No matter what batteries I buy camera will no longer take a pic.

My SD800IS was working fine while in the very hot/humid environment of Yap. I took it out of my air conditioned room and went to take a picture almost immediately. The view finder, the LCD image and the lens were all fogged. The camera worked but took foggy images. Eventually the fog cleared and my photos were fine but most of the controls no longer work. I can change the selector knob that determines if the camera is on auto, manual, video or display modes but it won't zoom and the program
