DSC-W200 Frozen My W200 has the lens open (extended) and will not close. Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens. I've tried connecting it to my macbook, using a fully charged battery, memory card vs no card, etc. Nothing seems to work. If I press the power button a seond time, the green power light goes off, but the LCD still says Sony. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not too eager to send it

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.


Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down.

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem.
