Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.
Try a hard reset first - Remove batteries and SD card, wait 5 minutes and reinsert everything and try. If the issue still recurrs, then best take it to the shop and check it out. You should still have the warranty on it. If they cannot fix it, ask th ... Digital Cameras

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?
From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera. thanks for responding. now i have to go thru "what to buy" again....... ... Canon Digital Cameras
I have a HP Photo Smart Caera. The button on the top you mash to take the picture keeps falling off. I have had this fixed three times. This time it happened outside and I could not find the spring.

Olympus DE-510 Zoom When I turn camera on, the screen has a red T at the top, with a box saying Yes, and one saying No. The line at the bottom says Go>OK. If I click OK, I get the same screen again.

I receive the E:61:00 error on screen, and the screen will not focus. I shook the camera around (per forums) and the screen focused for a minute, but would not zoom in out out. When I tried to zoom either way it would make a whirling sound. I opened my camera to have a tiny little piece, with "C 805" inscribed on it, to fall out. I do not know where this belongs, and still can not get my camera to focus. Help!

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again. [This problem happens indoor

I just bought this camera at a yard sale. It did not come with a disk. The model number is ST15R-VP. Serial number is 000-008-1141. I would like to know what type of camera it is and how I can get a disk to download pics to my computer from camera. Can I use this camera at another store like wal-mart photo center to make copies?
If it has a "Super Disc" drive, it will use regular 3 1/4" dicks or Super disks. The regular will hold about 15 pics and the superdisks will hold up to 75. The superdisks will need a special drive unit installed into the PC. ... VuPoint Digital Cameras

Hi there, I have a Canon IXUS 90 IS - the lens is extended out and won't retract when pressing the 'on' button.

Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do?

I've got a Fujifilm F30. Since yesterday, its not working properly. When I take photos, it 'absorbs' too much light and indoor photos becomes really bright and outdoor photos becomes nearly white from brightness. And when I transfer the pictures to computer, it has minor lines accross the picture. The video mode seems to be unaffected. What is the problem and is it worth fixing ? Would like to fix it if I can as F30 is still considered one of the best compact camera Fuji has ever made ! Thanks.
Hi Yuri. Turn the camera on and go into the menu and find the reset. Reset it. This will take you back to original factory settings. Then try it out. If it is fixed great. If not take it to your local camera shop that does repairs. J. ... Fuji FinePix F30 Digital Camera
Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?
Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
