The screen for my panasonic lumix dmc fs15 appears to be broken. I've only had it for six months! The display is now White with a small dark patch to one side, and diagonal lines across the screen. I was out hiking , and it was in my pocket. I don't recall it getting bashed but I guess that's what mustve happened! Is it worthwhile getting it fixed? Should I just buy a new one?

Hi, my friend dropped my samsung PL500 camera on the floor in a dusty place. The lens is now stuck however, it turns on, beeps and freezes on a black screen.

Camera was dropped in water for just seconds. It won't change between modes: play, video rec, and still shot. It is constantly in still shot mode. The battery dies quickly. I bought a new battery and it still dies quickly. Pictures taken have vertical lines and often are whited out. Anything I can do to fix this? Would it be better to buy another camera or have this one fixed?

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!

Can samsung sl201 b fixed with damage from liquid or would i be better off just buying a new camera?


Hard to say - moisture can do some nasty things to electronics. The damage could be minor, or the camera could be fried (boiled). Before you toss it, I suggest that you take it to a local camera shop (NOT the camera department at a chain store) or ... Samsung SL201 Digital Camera

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen. I talked to customer support and they told me that Installing the new version of their firmware, v1.01 would fix this problem. I've since installed the new firmware version, but I am still receiving the lens error. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Please help!!!


As solutions 1 & 2 indicate, lubing the gears works!! This is a great camera, so I hope all of the QV-R4 owners try this. I may become a maintenance item for the camera.\015\012 \015\012I have a few a ... Casio QV-R4 Digital Camera

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another


From your description you would be further ahead to buy a new camera, you stated there are no repair shops where you live, and to send it away would be expensive probably costing more than a new one. The only other option is go on ebay to price a new ... Digital Cameras

My LCD screen is broken on my Polaroid t737. I don't know how it happened, and I didn't take any action untill now. I didn't have the screen cover off yet. I just need to know if I can find a replacement screen anywhere, since I doubt it is even still under warranty. So yeah, if I could buy a new LCD screen that would be great.

Camera dropped My son accidently dropped my C743 digital camera. It must have hit on the right side top corner because now the screen is all white with a black triangle outline through the top right side through the middle of the screen.

Review switch Having had no problems since new 18 months ago, my A85 is stuck in review mode leaving me unable to take any pictures. The switch now has no effect.
