Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
Hi just got a new camera, kidak m531 and its making a clicking noise can you tell me how to stop it >?
You didn't give us much information. When does it click? All the time, when you snap a picture, when you move it, etc. The best way to stop an annoying noise on a brand new camera is to take it back.

My camera fell on my floor when I was trying to film a video. Now it is stuck with the lens out, and when I try to turn it on it makes a weird noise, stops, makes it again, makes a new 'bloop' powering off noise, and that's it. I can click the little play button in the square to view my pictures and it will make noise and turn on and I can go through my settings but it will not let me switch to actual camera/video mode! What do I do?

I can't get photos to upload from my Canon S500. Always in the past I just made the USB connection and I got a dialog screen telling me what to do. Now I have a new computer (running Vista, just got my Windows 7 upgrade and haven't loaded it yet), and it gave me a short message about "driver installed and then nothing--no icon, no nothing.

I bought new Leica M8 in UK - charged battery fine and used for several days. Now that I have returned to US, charger starts and makes usually noise - yellow light steady but goes out after short while - no more noise. Whether I take battery out in one hour or several hours, the camera tells me the battery has no charge. Suggestions?

The lens won't come all the way out- it makes clicking noises like it wants to and kind of bounces it but doesn't come out the rest of the way. If I push the zoom button over and gently twist, it will come out all the way. Once I turn the camera off and back on it gets stuck again. (I don't know for sure the model #- I don't have it with me right now but I got it about 3 years ago.)

I had my camera propped up (not on a tripod) so it was take a picture with the timer. However, it fell off, and now the lens won't close because it got slightly bent. When I press the power button, there is a clicking noise because it tries to close, but can't. Is this fixable or should I just plan to buy a new one?

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck. It has no juice at all now. At first I thought the computer inside was tripped. Maybe the salt water affected the batteries? What is the address to mail for repair? Do I have to pay ahead to look at? Is there a minimum charge. Monica [email protected] 619 593 8035

Hi! When I activate the power on my Olympus FE 320 (1,5 years old) it makes a "doc doc doc" noise for a few seconds, but the objektive don't come out. The answer from two shops, where I have showed the camera, told me, that the Objective must be destroid and a repairing will be as expensive as a new camera. My daughter who has used the camera at least tells me, that there was no exident with the camera. What do you think??? What can I do?? Thank you for answering soon. G.Weissinger

My Kodak EasyShare P850 will not turn on. I purchased a new battery for it, charged it, and put it in the camera. When I turn the camera on, it will make a little click noise but that's it.
