Canon SD900 selection options not responsive. The selector wheel, Function Set button and menu selector only work from time to time. Even if pressing the ring brings up info to the LCD, nothing can be changed because the Function Button and the Menu button are not active. This is a random problem. Sometime, I can bring all functions back to life by removing and re-inserting the battery and restarting.


Sounds like the board has become damp and possibly corroded in certain parts this causing the random effect with the buttons their isnt much you can do unless you can remove the case yourself and give it a good clean but doing this is extremely diffi ... Digital Cameras

My son hit some buttons on my xt and I am on vacation now. In auto mode it will let you take one pic and that is all. You have to turn the camera off and then on to take another pic. In addition, I cannot bring the menu up at all. Nothing is previewing and nothing is working. I have removed the battery and taken it out for hours, but nothing is working. PLEASE Help!!! I am not sure what he pushed.


First, try removing and replacing the camera battery. Sometimes this will reset the settings. If that doesn't work, then you need to reset your camera by removing (and then reinserting) the small internal battery. They call this the "date/time bat ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Menu Problem I can take photo's fine, and i get my normal preview on the LCD but when i push the menu button or try play back my images - nothing happens. In fact every button except the wheel/power on off and the "take photo" button is not working??? Nothing i press will work except to take pictures? help! It is brand new, got it two weeks ago and everything was working fine. And nothing happened to it, and i changed nothing.


Did you try calling Canon tech support or returning to retailer if the camera is really not functioning properly this soon after purchase, I'd try returning it once all troubleshooting issues have not resolved the issue.\015\012\015\012Ho ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

Wickedwahine Just today, the directional buttons froze up so that the up/down, left/right arrow buttons no longer work to scroll through pictures nor can I use them to navigate menu items. I removed the battery for 1 min as suggested in troubleshooting but it still didn't work. I also tried to press and hold the control and power button (just a guess) trying to trigger a reset. The directional buttons worked very briefly after that but it might just have been a fluke.


This may be an intermittant on the circuit board or the switch assembly inside of the camera. Was the camera dropped?\015\012\015\012I would not suggest trying to fix this yourself unless you have experience in this type of service and ha ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power.

I have a Polaroid digital camera I got in May that came with a PoGo printer. It all works fine, but I've misplaced the manuals, and when I go to import photos to my Mac, I get nothing. I don't know what the correct "mode" is to import, I've never had this problem before with any camera and my Mac, usually it instantly shows as a source. Do the settings for the PoGo printer disable the Mac to connect as a source? If so, what "button" do I push to allow it to be recognized. It's a pink Polaroid, 1
