Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I have a digital rebel and when i take pictures the screen is black. i have head the camera for three years problem free.
With the digital rebel it is possible to switch the display off when i recall it correctly there is a disp button on the back side , push it when the camera is on to see if it works , when not than probably the lcd is defect or the backlight , that can be fixed by a repair shop but costs more than buying a new or used body

Overheat I have owned the Digital Rebel XT (Black Body) for three months now and have found what may be a serious problem for anyone wanting to use this camera out-of-doors in direct sunlight. The temperature specification on the camera reads 32 to 104F. This is NOT ambient temp. This appears to be internal temp of the camera. Using the camera in ambient temperatures above 90F with the camera in direct sunlight causes the case (and internal temp) to rise to a staggering 120F in only 25 minutes.

I have a cannon powershot a85, and I clicked on the site you recommended and learned that it is listed for a free repair if your lcd screen goes black. My camera only recently did this, except i have dropped it before, years ago, but i did not have that problem then. Do you know if they'll still fix it for free, or do you think they'll attribute the blank screen to the slight dent on the camera?
If the drop years ago caused no problem in all this time, it therefore did not contribute to your lcd problem. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

I have a Canon EOS 350D SLR (calle the EOS Digital Rebel XT in the States) that has been used daily for two years without a problem, up to now... When I switch on it gives the message "CF Err". I have removed the 2Gb CF card and it reads perfectly in a dedicated card reader. Having backed up the pics on my PC I then tried to format the card in the camera but got the message "Err 99". I then formatted the card in the PCs card reader/writer but the camera still wont accept it. I have just tried a

When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint. If I try to take a picture, the picture is streaky or pink. Is this the problem that Canon will fix free of charge? The problem has been getting progressively worse since last year. What do you suggest?
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
I have a Minolta Maxxum 400 si that when I was taking a picture the other day it suddenly went very dark in the view finder. The camera is about 15 years old but has been a very good one. I use it only infrequently as I have three other digital cameras. I have never had any other problem. Do you think you can fix this.
Take off the lens and check if the mirror has stuck in the up position. This sometimes happens in old cameras. ... Digital Cameras
Dear Sir/Madam, I Mr.krushna Chandra Mohanty want to beg your attention to dot the needful with great hope. We (Me & and my wife Mrs.Prayodhi Pani) had purchased a digital camera in may 2010 with one year warranty from Bhubaneswar(Orissa).after three months the display of the camera had been corrupted and after that we went to your customer service centre in Mumbai (Santacruz) on 25.09.2010 (Call ID CD10000003952) and given for repairing.

I just purchased a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSI 450 D camera. The company I purchased it from is trying to talk me into a maintenance agreement. Among other things it includes a once per year free cleaning. They said Canon reccomends this to be done once per year. Do you have any insight on this?
If you drop your camera in the dirt a lot, I would send it in for the cleaning. It just takes one grain of sand, if left to bounce around long enough inside your camera, to enter the lens assembly and jam a gear in the lens gearbox forever. Most sa ... Canon Digital Cameras
After using our e-520 for about a year we have a problem. After taking a photo. When looking though the view finder all is black, as is the screen when switching to the lcd. Is it possible the shutter is stuck, do digital cameras have a shutter??
Digital cameras do have a "shutter", kind of. IT is electronic, just powers on/of the sensor that captrures the image. Some digital cameras have regular swhutter also, that makes it possible to get real fast shutter speeds for flsh. Take off the lens ... Olympus E-520 Digital Camera
I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-DZ3 Digital Camera bought 2 years ago, I like it very much as it is user friendly and the pictures are really great. The problem is one day, I on it and the screen is black, show no picture. However, if I replay all the pictures I took still show clearly. I wonder what happened to it, is it because the lens is broken?

I have an older (not digital) Canon EOS Rebel 2000 camera. I haven't used it for a couple of years and now when I went to use it I loaded the film. No problem. But after a couple of pictures it rewound all by itself. I did not press the rewind button. I want to use the entire roll of film, not just a couple of exposures. Does anybody know what went wrong? How can I fix this? Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org

I bought digital Canon EOS Rebel XT two years ago, and I have really big problem with AF. I got one half of the pictures fuzzy. Sometimes the green light is on, I took the picture and it is fuzzy. Next shot is fine. I never have this kind of problem with Canon Rebel ( not digital). Now I can't rely on Auto Focus at all. Please explain to me where is a problem. Thanks, Irene

E18 my canon powershot A150, got the whole E18 problem, it turns on with the blue canon screen, but then two seconds after it turns into a faded black with E18 in the bottom left hand corner. i seriously dont know whats wrong, and it hasnt even been a year since i got the camera, is there any way i can fix this problem? because at the moment buying a camera, my parents would not be too pleased :| it turns on with blue screen then it goes black and it says e18
E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

Hi.. My Olympus Stylus 710 camera is one year old and I have been having problems with it recently. Basically the camera is unusable right now. When i press the power, the lens open halfway, the picture on the LCD is blurry and one second after the lens close and an error appears of the screen saying "D: 5f08 5f0e 5f08 5e02". Can you help me fix this problem? Sending the camera back to Olympus to fix will cost a bundle and where I live, no one fixes digital cameras.

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface
Maybe circuit contact resistance problem? Cheaper to buy another newer digital camera. ... Olympus FE-4000 Digital Camera
I have a 4-5 year-old Canon Sureshot 3.2 MP (PC1037?)digital camera that has been extremely reliable. I use it for fishing trips primarily now. The viewing screen is now black and I am unable to take new pictures, other than black pictures. The menu still works and the playback of prior pictures still works. Question is whether to toss the camera or do you have a quick and inexpensive fix for this second or third camera in my collection. Thanks.
