I have two issues with my Canon EOS Rebel XS. One issue has been acting up for a while: If I turn the camera on and try to shoot, it tells me shooting is not possible and to turn the camera off and on again or redo the battery insertion. The only thing that works is if I take the battery out and in and turn the camera on again. The second problem started yesterday. My camera would not turn on so I thought the battery was uncharged even though I got no message saying that. But after chargi

There are two indications of how the batteries are inserted into this camera. One is on the lid ( + and -) and one is within the battery hold. The ones inside the battery holder are completely opposite of what is on the lid. Which one is the right way? I ask because freshly charged batteries are NOT working no matter which way I insert them. There is NO MANUAL with this camera,which I think is a cheap way for Kodak to sell these things. Very dissapointed with this camera.

My camera won't power up with fresh batteries. It died while I was taking photos. I thought the batteries were flat so put in new batteries (two different sets), but the camera wont turn on when the start button is pressed.

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not. I sent it to Canon repair who wanted to charge me more than it was worth to repair but that was before they even started to analyse the problem. I decided to buy a brand new 20d. Put in the battery and the CF card and exactly the same thing has happened. I can get the cameras to come on but when I press the buton the flash jumps

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P92 and it always has been working properly untill today. When I inserted a fresh pair of charged batteries the powerlight immediatly comes on, even before I turned the camera on. When I press the powerbutton and the camera starts I have to re-set the date, which is odd. After that done and ready for use the flash doesn't go off and it starts beeping and displays an error message: E:91.01 Is this problem fixable or should I throw it out of the window (metaforica

Suddenly, after taking some photos the camera will light up to the Fujifilm start window, and no further, then blacks out. It will not shut off with the power button, nor retract and close the lens even when I pull the battery out. I have tried two batteries. When I plugged the camera into the laptop, the lens retracted. Any ideas on what may be the issue?
The main board is bad. Was it recently dropped? If so, then the board might have been damaged - it's not worth fixing. When a camera is dropped it's like a car getting into a major collision - you'll have other problems later. As long as the memory c ... Fuji FinePix J10 Digital Camera

I have just purchased a KWorld DVD Maker 2 and set it up as per instructions and the DVD Maker itself says by pushing the button it will start flashing blue, well this does not happen and it gets very hot. I have the bigger usb end plugged into computor while my Sony video camera has only two female outlets 1 yellow the other black so I insert two cables with male adaptors to install. Where do the other leads go to or are they for other appliance uses. Please advise as I am getting frustrated
The 1 yellow and 1 black female outlets are likely for RCA Phono jacks and older VCR connections. DVD Maker sounds like you would use a camera that has USB cable to the computer and the computer writes DVDs using the Kworld DVD Maker 2.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras

Olympus Camedia 450 Zoom digital Camera has just started to keep showing card full after a couple of shots. The cards are 64Mb and are OK as I have checked them  on the PC with a disk/card program. I have also formated them both in the camera and also the PC under a FAT 16 basis. The two lights [red/green] also flash sometimes so changed batteries just to make sure that was not the problem. Any suggestions other than scrapping it? Cheers Peter

We completed the start up process and attempted to take a few test photos. we took two photos with flash and on the second photos, a loud noise was heard when the flash operated. We could never get the flash to operate again. We have read through the troubleshooting guide supplied with the camera and changed batteries and settings. No luck. Any assistance would be appreciated!
