Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My panasonic pv gs32 camcorder is stuck and the tape won't pop up. I get a "press reset button" message and when I do this I hear it trying to lift up and out, but it doesn't move at all. Are they any steps I can take other than taking the battery out and recharging and trying it again?

Low battery? I got my camera today, setup the setup menus, and had started to check out the features when the low battery warning came up. So I replaced the batteries and tried to turn the camera on but now all I get is the green light comes on for 3 seconds, goes off and approx. 5 seconds later the light flashes on, then off and the camera beeps 3 times, and nothing after that. The lens does not move at all. I went out and bought brand new batteries that were industrial strength and tried those

Distorted images When I try to capture a "superfine" resolution image (1600x1200), the image is distorted - segmented, linear blocks across the image, steps in the image, colour is separated into colour blocks - if only I could send you an attachment to demonstrate the effect - it would be so much easier!  I try to use this camera at work to document problems with equipment. This was my first digital camera - and what a disappointment! The batteries drain almost immediately, and never try to use

"lens error" when i turn the camera on to shoot photos, the display says "lens error".   It sounds as if the lens mechanism is trying to open, but it doesn't move.   Lights keep flashing.  I am able to view pictures I have already taken, but not able to take pictures.

The cassette cage holding my tape in my Canon ZR65 camcorder will not release the tape. The door is open and the cage tries to move forward or backward (barely) and then stops---won't open up. I dropped my charger for my battery a few days ago---could the battery not be getting enough power to the camera to release the tape? This has never happened before.


You can test the charger using a multimeter (it has +-0.5 volts from voltage written on charger), or go to a local repair shop and have it tested.A more serious problem is if the tape is stuck inside or the release mechanism is broken. In ... Digital Cameras
