Just doesn't fire anymore - Digital Cameras

Answers :

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
May I know the make and model of your camera? If a camera doesn't fire anymore it is usually caused by a worn out internal parts that needs to be diagnosed by an experienced tech on hand.

This will surely cost you so if you think that this camera served you for quite sometime then a replacement is surely recommended.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Happy New Year!

The camera not starting or not shooting anymore may occurr for many different reasons. Most of the time the camera must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

If the camera is starting and operating normally but simplu does not take pictures, ensure that the camera is not in PC mode, and check and replace the batteries (use alkaline or rechargeable type). If that does not fix the problem, then it is usually the shutter button itself (providing that camera is functional). The camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

If camera does not start at all, then the main board inside the camera or the ribbon cables connecting to main pcb are often responsible. Fist ensure that the problem is not battery. Test with camera connected to computer via USB. Test with no memory card inside camera.

Do I need a driver for my sanyo vpc 5885 digital camera because it won't download pictures to my computer via USB anymore. It turns on and then as soon as I push "set" for the PC the lense goes in and it shuts off. My computer had to be fixed and maybe this is why it won't work anymore? Do I need to install or download a new driver? Is there a driver via online or was there a CD that came with the camera?
