Some batteries (especially the lower mAh rechargables) don't seem to have enough power. Try putting in a couple of brand-new (non-rechargeable) Duracells, and see if that helps. ... Rollei Digital Cameras

I have an older pair of zoom lense Bushnell binoculars, 40mm with 7 to 21 power. I used to have a cabin in a very humid, mildewy area of Florida and it seems that the mold (mildew) has found its way into the lens whereupon it really messes up the viewing. I took the end pieces off and cleaned the insides with camera lens cleaning items and that helped, but I think the eye pieces need to be removed to finish the job. How do you do that? I'm not sure they are screwed onto the body! Has anyo


I am not familiar with this make, nor with zoom binoculars in general, but for a normal binocular of traditional design, you can take the eyepieces off together, as a unit, by dismantling the focussing mechanism. This is likely to be complicated by t ... Digital Cameras

I dropped my camera and the zoom lense is crooked. It won't let me take any pictures and it says "zoom error". Do I need a new camera or can I fix it? If I can, how? p.s.: I managed to get the lense strait, but it still won't work.


Chances are that you did more harm than good when you straightened the lens. Unfortunately, there is no DIY fix for the lens problem, so you are forced to decide between professional repair (possibly too costly to justify) or a new camera. Sorry th ... Fuji FinePix J12 Digital Camera

Hi..... Years ago I purchased a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 zoom lens with macro to fit my Konica SLRs. I also aquired a similar lense to fit my Minolta 101b. I have recently bought a Sony A100 digital SLR and would like to know if there are any converter rings available to use my old lenses on the new camera. I just love the one-stop zoom and focus operation. Any help appreciated Grayham

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

Hi, I have a Samsung PL100. When I turn it on the lens extends and then buzzes for about two seconds, the camera will then not focus (though it will zoom in and out). I have to admit that I have had the zoom unit apart to look for anything obvious, so it may need replacing. Is there any procedure I can use to seat the lenses in the correct position before switching on or can you advise on anywhere that sells these zoom units, as I cannot find any suppliers? Many thanks Steve O.


Unfortunately you have probably already turned your camera to scrap. Optical repairs of that type need specialist equipment, and in practice the tolerances are so fine that the only fix is to replace the entire optical assembly.In your ca ... Digital Cameras

I need some help to repair my Sony Cybershot DSC W50 camera. When you turn the camera on, it displays 'Access' for about 30 seconds, during which time the lens zooms in and out. Then it says 'Turn the power off and on again'. Nothing has happened to the camera - it has not been dropped and this fault just suddenly started. What can I do about this? I have had it just over a year. I’d be really grateful for any support! Thank you! Clare
