My Samsung S630 digital camera has or should I say had, recent irreplaceable photographic and video images on it. I viewed the images 2 days ago and they were all there and all ok. I turned the camera on this morning and the message "No Image" has come up. I don't understand how in les than 2 days, the images have mysteriously vanished?

Blured Pictures A few weeks ago, I sent in a DSCW50 camera under warranty. I used the camera during the holidays and the problem still persists: images continue to come out blurred and out of focus. I feel extremely DISSAPOINTED about this SONY product and I really regret the day I purchased this camera. I have done an extensive research over the web and I just learned that I am not the only consumer having a problem with this SONY product. In addition, in comparison with the images taken

My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?

Camera stalling The problems started after using my camera on a windy day at the beach 3weeks ago. After a few days, the lens started getting stuck, and wouldn't come out, or if it did, didn't focus properly. This problem was intermittent.

Dear Experts: I got the 850SW over a year ago, I only used it less than 10 times around pool or water park. I never immersed the cemera in water though, I doubt it was really waterproof like they claimed. Three weeks ago, my friend borrowed it for snorkeling in Hawaii for a couple of minutes. then the camera couldn't be turned on: every time I pressed the power button, it kept on beeping a few times then went off.

It is appears it is fully charged but the camera says "For use with compatible battery only" Then the camera shuts down. The battery I have is a Sony battery that worked just a few days ago!!!

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!

The usb port on the camera no longer works. I believe I unplugged it "hot".

The usb port still works on other detached items.I've tried to upgrade from the net and to reinstall the camera's usb driver from my install disk and in both instances I get the message it doesn

I just find it weird with the no lens problem. See after purchasing it and test was done the camera is quite okay. I've charge it for until its full and its ready for use for my trip. I'm pretty sure i did not dropped the camera and it was in my laptops case when i have the flight. then worst thing comes when i turned it on and at first the display is blurred again i turn if off and on, then the error lens came out. 4 days in the island i did not used this camera at all. by the time i went back


The island? Maybe sand got in the camera's lens holder - the cyllinder-shaped part that comes out. Or dust from the bag. Try a vacuume cleaner to take out any such thing but do not scratch the lens! Good luck ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message. I've been trying again. Using Uniross NiMH batteries, 2700mAh, previously used only a little, newly recharged. Menu indicates that the camera knows that's what it's
