Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Canon eos 1 n shows a bc error when I fire the shutter, it will AF, and meter the scene fine but then bc appears. I have been told by a tech that the shutter is fine, and that the board is fried. My thinking is if the board wasn't working surely it wouldn't focus or meter? It's a costly fix so I just want to confirm that I'm not getting taken for a ride, any thoughts.

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

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 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.

Dropped my pentax k100d. Lense is fine, Camera says card locked, will not delete or fire shutter. Sent for repair, was told circuit board was damaged and quoted £306 for repair.

I have a Nikon D40x. Camera works fine, but sometimes it does not shoot a picture when shutter is depressed. It will just beep and shutter will not go. This very frustrating as I've lost many shots. Usually a re-framing/re-focus will fix it. Is there a setting to avoid this? Thanks.
