Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
Sony cybershot dsc 707 'Pop up' flash does'nt flash when it pops up.
Have purchased camera 2nd hand, and was aware of the issue before purchase.
SIMPLE Fix. I have mended about 5 of these with the same fault. It is a\015\012very common fault. Basically due to the way the flash has been designed\015\012the flash pops up far too violently, this causes a lot of stress within\015\012the lens. This in time causes the Flash cable to come loose from the\015\012socket. Simple repair, just insert the cable back into the socket. Also\015\012causes the screws at the front of the lens to come loose too. To\015\012repair, simply, remove the extenal flash bracket and screws, and remove\015\012the screws to the Left of the lens (As you are looking into the lens)\015\012This will remove the LEFT pannel on the lens. Towards the back (Camera\015\012side) of the lens there is a socket arpprox 10 Pin and a ribbon cable,\015\012It may look like the cable is in the socket but normally it is just\015\012sitting on the edge. Push this cable back in. FLASH should work again,\015\012Best to tape this down to stop it happening again. GOOD LUCK.

Sometimes the focus goes completely out and there is no way to correct it. Turning the camera off and on uually corrects the issue, but then after 5-10 shots the same thing happens. Often, after restarting the camera there is a flashing E: 61:00 in the viewfinder. If feels as if something in the lens moves when it does happen. That can be felt in the hands.

I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 that I can't get the flash to go off on. The only flash setting that works on my camera is no flash setting and the icon for the no flash symbol appears white. The rest of the settings such as automatic flash with red-eye, and automatic flash, ect... are red. Is this a settings issues or a repair issue?

Flash issue I have a flash issue with my three Moultrie D40 cameras. They all worked fine for about a year, then the flash strted to malfunction and right now the flash is present at about 1-3 times out of 200 pictures. It's the same for all cameras. I guess that it's either the flash itself or the "power component" (I don't know the name for this in english) that feeds the flash. Any knowledge or advices about this? Thanks /Stefan, Sweden
Stefan, Ron here.There are many D40s listed on EBAY with same prob. I have bought a few and presently working on a fix...Moultrie won't support any out of warranty...want you to buy new.Ron ... Moultrie GameSpy 4.0 Digital Camera Deluxe
I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges

Flash I bought an Olympus Camedia C2040zoom camera second hand - it is a super camera with good quality pictures however the flash is built in and sometimes when taking photographs indoors light from windows cancels the auto flash - how do I ensure the flash operates in such conditions to ensure the subjects inside are seen in the finished photo?

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work. Where does my issue lie? Is it the battery, the charger or the camera?
1st- you shouldn't have to do this. Stop filing your nails and you will be able to pry the battery out with a fingernail.2cnd- I can't decide whether this is a bad battery or a fault with the charger. Either way, the battery won't charge, ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera
We just purchased a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera. We completed the start up process and attempted to take a few test photos. we took two photos with flash and on the second photos, a loud noise was heard when the flash operated. We could never get the flash to operate again. We have read through the troubleshooting guide supplied with the camera and changed batteries and settings. No luck. Any assistance would be appreciated!

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.

Hi there. A friend decided my computer is too slow so deleted some programs. It seems that the program for my PC to "see" the Panasonic DMC-FZ5 has gone. I use my camera almost daily to download my pictures and since the "clean up" the PC doesn't respond to the connection? Do I need a download? Or a GUN to shoot my soon to be ex friend.

My EOS 400D flash sometimes pops up in bright daylight in full auto mode. I sent it back to Cannon who returned it saying no fault found. I then began to think that the problem was the way I held the camera and that I may be obscuring the (light?) sensor near the grip with my hand. After not using the camera for a while I am now taking shots again and the flash pop up problem has re-appeared. I am now sure I am not blocking the sensor. Any ideas?
In full auto mode, the camera tries to use fill flash, when it detects a backlit scene (e.g. a person in front of a window). So this is not a bug, it's a feature!If you don't want the flash to fire, you can push it down and still take the shot. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
