Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Have Fuji FinePix S5000 Stopped taking pictures. Can review pictures an the card. Had it into Best Buy for repair. Came back no parts. They said something about the sensor malfuction...


Answers :

Hi,
Going to Best Buy was not really a good place for this problem. A lot of Camera Repair techs work from Photographer Supply companies. When you walk into a good camera shop you should see tons of darkroom equipment and a large section devoted to quality used cameras.

What you can do here is get a referral if they can't work on your model.

What is at fault is probably is one or more IC Chips controlling a sensor or two. To remedy this you have to short two pins on the chip, but the key is knowing which pins for which chips. This information is tightly held by the manufacturer. Still, should there be a shop or person in your area it will be the camera shop the pros use that will suggest one for you.

All that being said, your easiest method to pursue would be to send this camera to Fuji at a repair center.

I know this doesn't solve your problem with the camera. But, I hope this empowers you to take your next course of action.

So best buy didn't have the parts to do the repair, try advance camera. they may be able to fix it.

On my PENTAX Optio Z10, the slide shutter cover came loose, it slides left and right to open and close. I didn't lose any parts but I can't slide it back on. I currently have a rubber band holding it together. How can I get it fixed, I like the camera, it takes wonderful pictures. Unfortunately I have had it for more than a year. There aren't any camera repair stores in our area any longer. Don Wicks

Good Day. I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L16 camera onto a table. Since then when i switch the device on the lens goes out about a quarter and the goes back in and i get a lens error message. I noticed that when the lens goes out it bends to the right(looking from the top) and gets stuck by something. When i pull the lens a little to the left while switching it on everything works fine. A very small metal part came out of the camera. Any ideas? is it repairable?

Blankness When I switch it on, my screen goes grey-white for a few seconds. Then, It shows my last picture taken but it's very fuzzy and faded. Then the picture changes into complete greyness. THEN, it'll jump from the grey-whitness, to that faded picture. Damn. Would there be any why I could just replace a part in it? Like the hard drive or something? Definitely sounds like something is really fucked in my cam. Sniff. I loved it and hate having to buy another new one as I'm accustomed to using


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:\015\012 ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

Hi Merry XMas! I have a problem with my camera lately and it seems like a software problem not sure. When I take a picture, there are horizontal lines in the picture, the colours are yellowish and the flash is not working properly (shadow in the upper or lower part of the picture). I have reset the functionalities to default; it worked somehow but the problem came back after a few pictures. Can you help?

I have about 24 pictures on my XD card and I was trying to .rar them in one file on my PC but it was not working and so I ejected the XD card from the PC reader slot. When I put the XD card back in my camera, the message came up 'card needs to be initialized' (or similar words). I notice that to Initialize, it would erase all the files on the card which I do not want to do. Obviously, something has affected the formatting of the XD card whilst I was trying to zip the pictures. Is there some S/W
