Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Besta Digi-Eye V3 digital camera. It's deadlocking for no reason, and the image(i.e. what the camera "sees") will not come up on screen. What is the malfunction? Could someone PLEASE tell me what's going on and how I can fix this? I was attempting to chat and just got placed on never-ending hold. PLEASE HELP!

Hi,

\015\0121. Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth. Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries.
2. Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.
3. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens.
4. Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand.
\015\012
Finally, just tap on the sides of the camera when you switch on it. There is definitely a loose contact between the screen and circuit board inside it.

Hope this helps.

My camera won't turn on but it'll let me view all my pictures just fine. I think their might be a problem with the shutter because it sticks out a bit.

I bought a new canon 50d in july and used it through the summer sporadically in preparation for an overseas trip.
