I have a Minolta Dimage 7Hi and get a 'card error' message when I turn it on, in the middle of the viewing screen. The camera acts like it takes a picture without the button being pressed, then the red light next to the card goes on and off for about 10 seconds. Then the camera shuts down. It repeats this when I turn the camera back on and doesn't respond to any other settings or button pressings. Can you help?

My Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will no longer focus, especially after using zoom. It displays messages re shutting camera off and on, takes 30 seconds to turn off and sounds like a ticking clock! It is only 3 months old. This is easily the worst digital camera I have ever bought and the Internet shows many people have the same problem with this camera. it should be withdrawn!!

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.
