Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Samsung vp-d351 the camera doesn't record colour in normal camera mode, but night mode works perfectly...any ideas what I can do to fix it, the focus isn't great in normal camera mode either...thanks

Answers :

Proper focus in any camera will see colors ..or else record in b& w and in bad focus... make sure your macro mode is off and norm-auto on... most focus problems are due to dropping or stuck lenses.

night mode might mean your day sense has gone bad... the white balance etc.look for a default setting and turn it on.

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do? I have air dusted it, gently pulled and twisted lens, restarted and recharge ba

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time. Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode. I fixed one of the cameras once by pushing buttons after connecting and disconnecting from the computer (and the camera worked okay for several months), but repeate

Lost AutoFocus My camera is new, bought 2 days ago, and yesterday I was changing the modes wheel (on top). Then I noticed it couldn't set focus at all, anymore!

Camera will not focus in zoom mode (scenery setting) or focus in macro mode. There seems to be nothing in the manual suggesting a fix.

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?

Hello, my Samsung ST 550 camera will not turn on and the lens is stuck out and wont move. I have charged it up and when i go to turn it on the light blinks and it beeps but just turns back off again. I have no idea how to fix it and i'm pretty sure the waranty has ran out on it. If you have any idea how to fix it that would be great!! Louise

When I look through the view finder window. Everything that I see is out of focus...even the little numbers at the bottom. The pictures come out fine in Auto focus, but in any other mode, I can not tell if the camera is in focus. I cleaned the outside glass with a lens cloth but it has not fixed the problem.

Okay looking at the back of the camera where the viewfinder eye piece is right side upper corner you will see a small wheel partially covered by the rubber rim of the viewfinder by the side of it you will see a small line with a + and - that is a dio ...

I have a sanyo camera 7.1 mega pink and everytime i try and take a picture my screen goes black and shuts off without the camera piece going back in! I have almost the same problem except when I take a picture and go into the mode to look at them it is completely black. My camera was doing great and then all of a sudden it did this when I had just been taking pictures with it. Any idea what to do?

In the first case, if the camera turns off by itself with lens not retracting, try fresh alkaline battery. If that does not work, then the ribbon cable from battery charger to mainboard inside the camera is probably causing the problem.An inter ... Sanyo VPC-S880 Digital Camera

Zoom broken my camera was on then bed & the zoom was out to normal level. i tripped and fell on it & now the inner bit of the zoom is wedged at an andgle and wont move. i tried turning the camera on to see if it could move it at all itself and the mechanism tries 5 times then gives up and the camera turns off without turning the screen on.

Sony DSC-W100 I own a sony dsc w100 and it has been taking great photos. Unfortunatly I switched it on today and it no longer seems to be a ble to focus. I have cleaned the lens and the little circular piece of glass (think this bit measures distance for focus) but my photos are still blurred. The camera seems to permenantly have a little icon saying 'saf' in the bottom left corner of the screen. I wonder if this icon is the key to the problem and what it means?

Olympus C-5060 - has had a melt down with continual beeping and has lost focus. It also doesn't switch off even when the dial is turned to off. The lens does not retract when turned off. I had it in super macro MF just prior to this happening. It has been a great camera and I'm not ready to give up on it! Are there any camera gurus out there with some ideas on what to try?

I have had an Pentax Optio S10 auto focus camera for about 3 years and it hasn't missed a beat. But now it will not take photos in flash mode. I have tried the usual settings as per the manual, and noticed a previous posting of the same issue. The response was to recharge the battery, which currently I am doing. The indicator on the camera's LCD however shows the battery to be almost fully charged though. Would this be the same issue? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Graham

Card-Cover Open When I turn my camera on I am given a screen saying "Card-Cover Open". My camera worked fine before this, but I'm unaware on how to fix this problem. Any ideas will be greatly noted.


Lumix DMC-FX33. Keep on getting "Please turn camera off and then on again" over and over again. Occasionally I can focus and take a picture and the camera works for a day or two. Then the problem reappears in every mode accept picture play back. I tried cleaning the lens. Any ideas?

I have a Canon Rebel Xt that occasionally has problems with the shutter button suddenly not working. The camera is still on and all the menu buttons continue to work. It acts like the lens decides to quit communicating with the camera body. The only fix I have found is to take the battery out for 10-15 sec. and it works like normal. Any advise on whats going on would be great, Thanks Brandon

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks
