Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I HAVE A CASIO EX-S500, I HAVE RECENTLY NOTICED THAT THERE ARE RUST COLOURED STAINS ON THE DISPLAY SCREEN, THEY DO NOT APPEAR ON THE ACTUAL PICTURES.
CAN THESE BE REPAIRED/RECTIFIED ?
IS IT AN EXPENSIVE JOB ?
Your display screen has probably been exposed to strong light. If so send your product back to the manufacturer or retailer and they should repair it absolutely free. If you are going to send your product back then I recommend you tell them that your product is faulty, by doing this you could get a whole new camera. It worked for me when my camera was playing up.

I cannot play my SD Card video clips on my computer. They appear as a series of still photos when put on to my computer. I usually use VLC for all my videos on my computer and have no other problems with it. I used a card recovery website to restore the SD Card as all the photos/video clips were "hidden". The Card Recovery v5.20 did a wonderful job of recovering the photos but only two of the many video clips actuall play. I purchased a Don't Panic CD Rom from Jessups. This only recovered

I bought Benq c1030 Eco three months ago. At the very beginning it was doing the job perfectly. Suddenly, some problems occurred. Actually, I can't always switch it on. Sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't. Batteries are not the problem. Yesterday I bought new ones but it didn't change anything. Could you please tell me what the problem could be? Thank you in advance
Hi there its a problem of the camera power switch. Some time moisture damaged the surface of the switch or some time attack by the dust. Visit service center for cleaning the power switch. Thanks. ... Digital Cameras
Camera takes photos without actually "focusing" on the object. Seems their is no "prefocus" with the button. As soon as you touch the focus button, the camera automatically takes the photo. When the camera was working correctly, you'd push the focus button half way down and then it would do it's job. Now it just takes the shot if you barely even touch the button. Not good...........

My Canon 40D suddenly came down with the dreaded Error 99 for no apparent reason. I have tried all the usual, battery, memory card, lens, but no luck. Even on the bulb setting the shutter won't stay open. It clicks as if taking a photo but then the error message appears. Is it a job for Canon? Thanks Trevor Lx

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.
The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras
Hi, I have just bought the Panasonic FZ45 and seem to have a problem with the flash. It will not pop up automatically when in "IA" mode. The display actually shows the symbol indicating that the flash is forced off. Have tried to change this using the REC set up menu but to no avail (incidentally the option to force the flash off appears in the user manual, but not on the REC menu). I have searched some of the forums on the web and it has been suggested that the FZ45 does not have an auto fla

Shutter button does not work on SP-500UZ. Zoom in/out works sporadically (sometimes it jitters a little when zooming). It was working fine until last weekend, when it just stopped working. When I press the shutter button it does appear to correctly adjust the focus, but it will not actually take any pictures.
What about the menu switch, manipulate it, see what that does. ... Digital Cameras
Frozen Lens I just dropped poor camera on to the carpet from about a foot! Everything seems to work except the shooting mode, the lens wont extend from the actual camera. The slider still goes across fully and the battery is in fine. I can go into quick view mode and still change settings etc. Is this likely to be expensive to fix?

Hello I have a faulty JVC GR-DF470. It seems that some models (not this one), had a malfunctioning CCD Image Sensor. This appears to be the case with this model. JVC will no longer fix the problem free, so I am just concerned as to how much a new Sensor would be? It sounds expensive! Thank you Allan Wilkins
This is not going to be cheap to replace. As soon as you get out of the warrenty period and end up purchasing repair parts from the factory you will usually pay as much as a new camera or very close. Repair parts are priced differently (quite a bit d ... JVC Digital Cameras
Lens distorded My view is blurred and jagged appearing. When taking the picture anyway, it comes out the same, and but a little hour glass thing comes in view and empties and then it reads card is full, after taking only one picture. What in the world could be causing this. I recently bought a new battery. It is fully charged. I hope I didn't ruin my camera with this off brand battery. Actuall I put the old one in to see if it did the same thing and it does. How ever you can help, I would appre

Finepix 59500 We have a problem with our camera. Suddenly the display on the back has gone dark and there appears to be a problem with light getting in. It is also affecting the images that we are taking with the camera. When we press the info button it shows a small amount of grey in the graph but otherwise it is all black.

Hi! I actually have 2 canon Powershot SD1300 IS. One is only 1 month old. They both worked when I initially received them. Now they appear to be focusing, but pictures are coming out 99% blurry (out of focus). Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to fix this?
Make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower. ... Digital Cameras
My Nikon D70 won't actually take pictures. The letes CHR appear in () in the bottom right hand corner of the LED screen.
This is usually an age-related issue caused partially by poor design/assembly of an internal ribbon cable which connects the CF card plug within the memory card slot to the camera. However, the code also indicates either a poor memory card or a poorl ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera
