Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I have a Pentax Optio33LF digital camera,
I have seen a home made 35mm slide copier wich is essentially a tube which fits on to the boss on the face of the camera ( at the lens mount ) at the outer end of this tube a slide viewer is mounted.
The slide is placed into the viewer, the camera is pointed at the sky then a shot is taken.
Is this a good thing to do with the camera?

I have a Nikon Coolpix S610 (I think model #32507688). The little orange battery lock that keeps the battery in place broke and fell out. The outer door does not hold the battery in and the camera does not work or shuts down if we don't constantly hold the battery in place during use. Can I purchase this piece and replace it myself. Quotes on a repair of this is almost as much as a new camera. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I have a Kodak Z740 camera with a total lost instruction booklet. I need a new instruction book if possible. An easy answer from you "Experts" might be if you can answer this: I have 24 pictures saved on our camera, but somehow we lost to place a memory card in the camera. We can "review" the camera and see all the pictures still there. If nothing else, can you people just explain how I can transfer these pictures onto a memory "card" so then I can then transfer to our computer and end up

THE LENS COVER CAME LOOSE WHEN I OPENED IT UP THE HOLE AT THE TOP OF THE LENS COVER SEEMS TO BE MISSING A GASGET THAT HOLDS IT IN PLACE WHILE THE BOTTOM HOLE ON THE LENS SLIDES IT OPEN AND CLOSED.

I have a Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 and am very pleased with it. I am editing the footage on Pinnacle 12 Ultimate which I use with my Sony DV camera without a problem. The Xacti live camera sound drops out intermittently on the end result, I have tried running to DVD and also creating an AVI file with the same result. The sound does not always drop out in the same place each time I run it.

CAMERA IS THREE MONTHS OLD. ON MY LAST OUTING I NOTICED A PERFECT CIRCLE SPOT ONLY IN SHOTS OF THE SKY. THE SPOT IS IN THE IDENTICAL PLACE ON ALL SKY SHOT PHOTOS NO MATTER WHAT FOCAL LENGHT IS USED. THE LENSE IS CLEAN AT BOTH ENDS. I CHECKED MY PHOTOS WHEN I ORIGINALLY GOT THIS CAMERA AND THERE IS NO ROUND SPOTS ANYWHERE. THE SPOT IS IN THE UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER OF ANY SHOT WHERE THERE ARE CLOUDS OR SKY. FLASH PICTURES, INTERIOR PICTURES AND THE LIKE, THERE IS NO SPOT. PLEASE HELP...RICHIE
If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing. However, it's more likely that there's dirt on your CCD. On your camera's menu, select mirror lockup/cl ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera with 28-135mm lens
Hi, i can view my previously taped videos on my JVC Digital Video Camera GR-D73AA but there is no sound & I can't tape any video as all i can see on my LCD viewer is black. I have already purchased a Head cleaning cassette which hasn't helped what else can i do? At wits end - Many thanks Toni
Hi, If you can view tapes playing back through the camera that were previously recorded using the main flip out LCD then you can be assured the LCD is actually fine. If you can, hook the camera upto a TV and playback the tapes you have to see if you ... Digital Cameras

Humidity Issues Hi! This past week I went on a cruise to Cozumel and Progresso, Mexico. At both locations, once at the pier and once on the ship, the outer and inner lense would fog over and stay like that for 5-15 minutes. The only way I could clear it would be to place the camera in front of a fan (which would "dry" it faster) or fan it with a piece of paper (which took forever - don't really know if this even helped). I have never had this problem before and have owned 3 different Canon c

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.
On rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.
It seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is vi ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

Unfortunately I dropped my lumix camera today. The outer rim of the zoom part is a tiny bit dented. When I turn the camera on, the zoom tries to come out, hunts a little and then goes back in. The camera appears to be fine apart from the rim which I think may be rubbing on the side of the zoom. What can I do, does the outer rim come off? Thank you in advance, I am on holiday in India and devastated I can't take photos.

On my PENTAX Optio Z10, the slide shutter cover came loose, it slides left and right to open and close. I didn't lose any parts but I can't slide it back on.
