Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When i open up the camera app. i see black specs all over the screen, it looks like dirt in there or something. Is there a way to clean it?


Answers :

Three possibilities..
\015\0121. Dirt on the outside of the lens. Clean it with a lens cloth.
\015\0122. Something got inside the lens somehow. Do not take it apart yourself. Have a proffesional clean it.
\015\0123. The LCD screen is bad.

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.


It is definitely a CCD issue. First of all how long have you owned the camera? I am guessing it is out of warranty so in most cases it is the best option to purchase a replacement as you will be able to get one twice as good for about as much as the ... Digital Cameras

My husband has a Canon DS6014. I would like the screen on the back of the camera to show what the lens is looking at as I am taking pictures (as opposed to looking through the viewfinder). Right now, the screen remains dark unless I am reviewing pictures, or am in the menu. I've looked through the menu options and cant seem to find way to make it happen. Can you help?

The display screen shows images very distorted like it is too bright and the image "runs" it's really strange. Almost like when you look at a heart beat monitor and it "spikes". I knocked the camera off my desk while trying to charge it, and I am afraid I might have messed up the lens or something. The image is clear when looking at the settings, but the display is very distorted.

Ruined Screen My friend's screen is ruined. When it's off you can see some damage or something on the screen. When I turn it on I get this. http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c386/Judas_Iscariot_X8792/Camwithbrokescrean.png Also the lens doesn't "grow" out like it should when you turn it on. It hasn't been dropped in water, nor has it fallen to the ground and broke that way. Does anyone know if this can be fixed. I also don't know if this cam is under warranty.

I turned on my cam to see the camera making everything look distorted on the screen and distorted when I actually take a picture. Every other function works fine (like the menu screens etc.) so it's not a screen problem so it might be a lens problem or something. Can somebody please tell me what's wrong?

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving
