Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hi, my camera may have been knocked as I have a black splurge like a spider with a black strands on the bottom left of the monitor. There are no cracks on the screen. I am wondering if this will spread. If it doesn't and I'm careful I shall leave it, but if it should become a problem, I am considering getting it repaired so long as it doesn't cost too much. Are you able to tell me what the problem is and how it may have been caused? Plus, whether it is easy to fix? Many thanks


Answers :

It's definitely a broken LCD screen and is likely to get worse.

Repair costs and viability depends entirely upon the make and model of camera and whether it's old enough that repairs will cost more than replacement of the camera. As you didn't give make/model/age details I cannot be more specific.

SAME PROBLEM I didn't drop S60 or hit anything. When turn on the power, a motor vibration noise will be heard. Turn it off and turn it on again may get it work luckily. The repair center said the belt is not on the motor gear and asked $100 repair charge even it is still in warranty. Seems Nikon S60 has potential quality problem here. There is anyone has same problem here? We may collect such information to claim Nikon to get our right!

I read your solution to the Sony DSC-T1 black screen problem, but the link you provided did not work, even when I copied it into my browser. I know from all the other posts on the website that I have the identical problem and would love to get it fixed, but I found no reference to "free repair" anywhere on the Sony website. What am I doing wrong? I am in the process of trying the phone support now, but I have no reason to expect that to work any better. I will let you know if I am successful. Th

I have owned a Canon G9 for a couple years. I dropped it back in May. Lens wouldn't retract. Did research - must get it fixed professionally. Instead of sending to CANON - I sent to Teleplan Digital Camera Repair (worthless hucksters) to save some money. STUPID! Horrible experience - just now received my camera back after them having it back and forth since June. After the fixed the initial problem I noticed having some focusing problems. Almost every picture wasn't focusing correctly. Not a

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems. I think the camera is having CCD problems because I can't take pictures without them being black but I can see previous pictures just fine. I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I wer

I have a Canon MV600. when switched on to 'camera', all I get is a blank screen. Occasionally it will work normally. I suspect the iris is not opening and the iris motor sounds a bit rough. do you have any idea what the problem is likely to be and how much this repair is likely to cost. Incidentally, I also had this same problem with an older analogue Canon model so it would seem to be a common failing.


The US version of the MV600 is the ZR60. Canon has issued a service notice for this model world wide that seems to address your issue. The US version can be found at this ... Canon Digital Cameras

Battery lock I broke the battery lock while trying to insert the battery. I brought it to a camera repair shop who said that they are encountering problems getting spare parts for this camera and especially a replacement lock. I live in Dublin can anybody recommend another camera repair shop that may locate or have the part. It is only 2 years old.

Fuji Finepix I get black lines across images... I have studied previous answers and think this may be a terminal problem! If it is the CCD, a) what is a CCD and b) is it fixable, or should I give up and get a new camera. I think this camera is over 2 years old. Pity, it has been very good for this ignorant user!


Okay well if the images are okay on the PC and don't have any black lines across them it's just the LCD screen. Very expensive to replace and unnecessary if it's still working okay, it's a shame it wasn't still under it's 1 year guarantee; unless yo ... Fuji FinePix A350 Digital Camera

My 450d canon won't turn on and when the battery is in, the WB button (second on the right side of the screen) is blue. I have a feeling this means' get it repaired' as I had a friend borrow it and said they spilt a drink near it but not on it, but this seems like they may have spilt the drink ON my camera and have caused some sort of water damage. I'm really quite worried as I'm often told repairs cost more than the camera is worth and I don't want to have to buy another!

WE bought a camera 2 years ago. We had a problem with the lens and we sent it back for repair the first year. And ever since then it had gotten worse. Spots on the camera and more.

The part that controls the aperture is stuck. Basically, when I look in the lens, the black part is still closed, and at first it stayed open too long. Now it is just stuck closed. I'm now in the UK, and it of course broke 1 day after the warranty ran out, so it's a no go to get fixed under warranty apparently. Now, I took it into a repair shop, and they said they see this happen a lot with digital cameras, and the more pictures you take the quicker the part will wear out. They're going to give

I have a DSC-W150 Super SteadyShot and recently I took some pictures and now it doesnt let me view the pictures on the memory stick and the screen blacks out. But if I take out the memory stick and take pictures on the internal memory it will let me view those. What may be the problem? I'd appreciate any assistance!!


On some cameras, once you activate and use the internal memory, the regular memory card no longer works properly. You need to format the internal memory with no card in the camera to get your card to work again. ... Sony Digital Cameras

A friend dropped my camera on the weekend (a CASIO EXILIM EX-Z70) and the lens is definitely broken (it says LENS ERROR) and takes half photos (half black half normal image). The camera is still able to view images I had taken previously. Just wondering how much this type of repair costs, so I can look around and not get ripped off! Thanks


The repairing cost depends on the condition, the actual damage. And important is where you live. Because in some countries the labour is too high to fix the camera. ... Digital Cameras

Pentax PZ1 The mirror and shutter are locked on my PZ1 film camera, I am told that it would cost more to repair than it is worth so I would like to try myself. Another expert thinks that the internal gears may be jammed or seized so I would like to know how to get at the gears. Do I remove the bottom plate and work inwards from there or the top plate?
