Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT: The upper lcd screen info flickers,some of the icons on the screen work normaly, but other icons are lighter and flicker. Im speaking about the portion that displays battery life and #of pics taken. The lower display screen (color)works fine. Otherwise the camera works fine.

Hi Merry XMas! I have a problem with my camera lately and it seems like a software problem not sure. When I take a picture, there are horizontal lines in the picture, the colours are yellowish and the flash is not working properly (shadow in the upper or lower part of the picture). I have reset the functionalities to default; it worked somehow but the problem came back after a few pictures. Can you help?

My one year old Nikon D90 intermittently will not work, and will display "err" in upper left of screen, and "cha" in lower right. After some period of time, this eventually passes and camera works, but happens now with increasing frequency. Please advise. Thanks


ERR means camera error and CHA means this card cannot be used. You are probably getting the CHA error because of a camera malfunction. Try removing card and batteries with the camera turned "ON", the press and hold the shutter release for approx. 30 ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

When I turn on my camera, all I see on my screen is a blank white screen with two large black blobs running from upper left to lower right. The same screen appears when I try to preview past shots. My menu won't work either. Any clues as to what's wrong? I carried my camera in my right back pocket before this happened and I may have sat on the screen without knowing it. Is there any way to find out if my camera is still workable? Thanks. Bob Jenks [email protected] 561.694.8326

Have an olympus trip 600 new out of the box. After loading film the red lite worked and I manually advanced film to # 1, pushed the shutter button and flash went off but film did not advance. Now only the rewind works. Considering the low cost of the camera is it worth having it repaired?

I have a Praktica sport SK320, Bought from a charity shop. It seems to be working, I have taken some pictures, but I have no idea if there is film inside, I can't see any indication through the tiny window at the back. Does this mean that there is no film loaded. Although it is winding on and flashing? Maybe I should open it to see.I thought that if it wasn't loaded it wouldn't work. Many thanks. Regards Joyce

I just got a Canon Advantix Elph LT260 at a thrift store and it was working fine. I tried to adjust the date and time and now I can't get it to take pictures. I did press a button that i assume rewound the film. Do I need to buy new film or is there a button that I can press to make it work? Also there is a button that has a flag and a pencil pictured above it. What is this button for? Thank you.

After viewing pictures on my computer that I rotated, and then rotating them back to original position, the auto rotate doesn't work when I view that picture on the camera. How do I get them to auto rotate correctly again on the camera?


That's because you used the computer's operating system to change the orientation of the info on the card. Now the camera doesn't recognize the original info. From now on, download the pics to the computer first before you try to rotate them. ... Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
