I have a samsung S630 digital camera, about 2 years old. It seems to have stopped being able to download images onto my laptop. The laptop recently was recently repaired and I'm not sure if they removed some programs... I've tried reinstalling the software on the CD ROM that came with the camera, plus updating Adobe etc, but nothing works - when the camera screen comes up with 'connect to computer', I press 'OK' but then it just goes black and switches off! Any suggestons?

I've just bought a new DSLR Olympus camera and fully charged the battery. The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on.

This camera was working fine, was turned off, and then a day later wouldn't work. The LCD screen on back works only if the Mode Switch is in the review mode (or DOWN), and does not light up under the picture taking mode (or UP) position. Also, while the switch is in the UP position, the ON/OFF power indicator button no longer stays lit. It does, however, stay lit in the Mode Switch in the DOWN position. First problem in three years. Nice little camera.

Switch glitch When i turn on my camera it goes off again within a few seconds (or maybe less). I have to turn it all the way off (slowly) and on again. Sometimes it stays on (at least long enough for a photo) and other times not. Has been getting worse so now the camera is pretty useless. I am presuming that the switch has had it (any other suggestions?) Interestingly while it was under warranty i had switch problems and it was replaced so this is the second switch on the camera. Is the switch a

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared. Since then I have been taking photos w

My Kodak Z650 camera just won't switch ON. I used the camera a few weeks ago and it was working fine and after using it, I removed the battery and packed it away for next use.

When Mode switch is set to take pictures or clips, the camera shuts down in less than a second after I turn it on. If the Mode switch is in the far-left position (review pictures already taken), it stays on and I can see all the pics in the camera, but as soon as I switch to picture-taking mode the camera shuts down.

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on. I've tried recharging the battery, changing memory cards, no memory card, switching settings and turning the on/off switch. Is there anything to be done or I do I just need to get a new camera?

The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

When switched on the camera tries to open the lens. It is clearly being obstructed in some way, and after three attempts closes down with the message "Please turn camera off and on again". If tapped gently sometimes the lens will open, and if the lens is caught and encouraged to stay out then ooccasionally the camera opens as normal. If the lens does stay open the camera appears to function as normal.

On/Off Switch Hi My problem with the 5050Z is as follows; When I switch the camera on the lens extends and then retracts but not always. This can carry on until I turn it off. On the odd occasion that this does not happen, should I lightly touch the on/off switch (but not move it) the lens begins to retract and extend again until I turn it off.

My C5050 Olympus has a problem with the "On - Off" switch which I have been told is not unusual.Is it practicable to attempt a self repair? I have repaired film cameras in the past and would appreciate any advice you copuld give me as to what is involved and how to gain access to the offending part. The camera is probably not worth spending money on a professiona, repair at this stage of its life.
