Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

It won't take pictures or video or even open the lense. It just says "error 2" on the screen. I can still look through the pictures I have already taken.


Answers :

Could already be mechanical, but do try to turn it off, remove the batteries, press the power button for 10 seconds, then after about a minute, reconnect the batteries. Let it remain powered off for 5 minutes before testing it again. hope this helps.

Black screen We are having the problem many others are having on this website. We were in the middle of our trip to Monterey this weekend when the screen went completely black and no more pictures can be taken. We could use the menu & could look at pictures already taken, so we have to conclude that the LCD is NOT the actual problem; however, we aren't sure why we can't take anymore pictures. We dumped all the pictures on the camera onto our computer thinking it might be "full", but still no

Canon rebel xt eos shows ERR CF. What do I do now?I tried a new flash card but still got the same error message. When I try to preview pictures I have already taken the screen says ¨no image¨. My camera worked for a couple of pictures at one point following this initial error message and then acted up again, showing err 02. It then quickly reverted back to old error CF message.


Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way.

The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

"unidentified image" About half the time when I take a picture it will take fine and show up and then when I go to look at it after it will say unidentified image.

When I took my camera swimming, the pictures taken were fuzzy. I turned it off so I could look at my pictures. I could still look at the pictures but it wouldn't stay on for long. The screen would darken and start beeping. Now when i try to turn it on, it just beeps. Nothing goes on.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera
