Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My scanner stopped scanning one night and when I got up the next morning I had NOTHING Now I have everything going again BY pushing the police, fire EMS, etc. as I read in your manual on the computer. Everything came back and is doing fine BUT I'm listening to police, fire, etc. from at least 50 miles away from my town. I know the areas but this is not what I want. The ones that I had programed with our area are GONE. I'm sure I've messed up but don't know what to do. Should I just give u



Answers :

It sounds like either a setting is wrong, your you're having a problem with the programming. If there's a Ham Radio Club in your area, those boys are pretty knowledgeabe about scanners, and might be abe to figure it out, or determine if the unit is indeed, going bad. Also, some of the Radio Shack folks know about them, and may be able to help.
\015\012Otherwise, contact the manufacturer and see if they know what's going on. At least you'd know if it was really bad or not.
\015\012Good luck, though, and hope this helps.

Is there a chart that explains the range of a lens. I have a Canon EOS and want to buy a zoom lens to shoot birds, wildlife etc. I don't know how far80-200 MM shoots. I know it's sounds like a dumb ?'s - but I need to know. Thanks Nancy


Hi, you can calculate optical zoom by lens specs\012ex: 18-200mm lens is 3Xzoom -- you get 3 by finding out how many times the second number can be divided by the first so200mm /18mm=11X the object will be 11X larger than with the 18mm lens at 2 ...

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor

This is a stupid question I know. I purchased a Digipower Universal Charger TC3000; I have used it once and now can't remember how I'm suppose to put the battery in. Needless to say, I can't find the instructions. The battery is a camera battery and I don't know if I'm suppose to lay it flat, stand it up, etc. Can you help? Thank you. Connie


Well, I can't find the instructions online anywhere, but the charger seems easy enough to use. The battery contacts need to come in contact with the contacts in the charger. This particular charger automatically figures out the + and - so if you inse ... Digipower Digital Cameras

Hairdressing Shots...Nightmare! Dear Lightingman I have been asked, by a hairdressing aquaintance, to take photos of her models for a competition. I thought it was just casual shots of her doing the work etc. but she wants formal shots with background etc! Now I feel super pressured and am worrying. All I have is a Canon EOS 350D. It has another longer lens which I have never used. I have borrowed two lights from the local life drawing class - dont know if the bulbs are right - which wattage

I own an Olympus Evolt E-500. Unfortunately, it was dropped and landed on the corner of the case near the battery door. The camera turns on, lcd screen, flash, and shutter seem to work, BUT pictures are black. Difficult to view anything thru viewfinder. Camera store told me they didn't know what was wrong, but would cost me at least $270 to repair. 1) does anyone know what is wrong, 2) can I fix it myself?


I found this camera available for purchase as brand new for $450. Spending nearly $300 to repair an older version may no be a wise choice. You may find there is a market for the camera in its current non-working condition on eBay.With that ... Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

Error #e21 I've got a kodak easyshare v610, which is RUBBISH!!!, but apart from that at least I was really looking forward to make some simple photos on it, but after half a year of using it ERROR E21 appeared on the screen!
