I just got my camera back from Canon but it still isn't working right! I took it in because when I turned it on it said NO CF CARD. They fixed the metal prongs. Now, it still doesn't work to store or view photos on the camera without a cf card. I inserted my old CF (undamaged card) and formatted it and now it seems to take photos BUT nothing shows on my camera viewfinder when I go to take the photos. It shows I have over 3000 photos on my card but they will not display. Help!

I have a SAMSUNG i70, which is under a year old and worked brilliantly as a camera. But when i put in a new memory stick for MP3 uses, and loaded music, it worked but then crashes when i change a couple songs.

I asked currys (who i bought the card from), and i was made to formatt it then reload the music, but it's still happening. But as i i said it's new, and the other functions work. what coul


It says it supports all mp3 versions (including VBR) but maybe you should try the digimax software (included) to convert to thr right version. Apparently there is a limit: 900 file limit, 100 folder limit and filenames are limited to 255 characters. ... Digital Cameras

Someone accidently held a magnet over my old Sony DSC-T1 it no longer has an ability to take pictures. Just a blank screen. The old photos are still on the memory card I tried replacing the memory card and that is not the problem. It was a small magnet for a board. The screen still works in terms of being able to review the old photos, but when the door is slid down and the camera turned on, there is no live image.

I cannot see anything when in camera, film, or view mode. When I snap a photo, it sounds like a picture was taken and the flash still goes off, but nothing is displayed on the screen. Only when I attempted to upload my photos onto my PC was I able to see that my camera was in fact still taking pictures!

I have a 4-5 year-old Canon Sureshot 3.2 MP (PC1037?)digital camera that has been extremely reliable. I use it for fishing trips primarily now. The viewing screen is now black and I am unable to take new pictures, other than black pictures. The menu still works and the playback of prior pictures still works. Question is whether to toss the camera or do you have a quick and inexpensive fix for this second or third camera in my collection. Thanks.

The flash mechanism is broken. You will have to either take the camera to a repair shop or buy a new one. It could get pretty expensive to fix that. Also I would check with the manufactorer too see if you have any type of warranty left. ... Digital Cameras

Hello - My Olympus SP-550OUZ Camera was in a rucksack which slid of my shoulder and hit the ground.

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!


Time for some "tough love"...suggest you buy one of the new Pentax point-and-shoots that are especially made for people who continually drop their cameras. This one can be dropped from 3 feet and still work. Leave the good DSLRs to the rest of us. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
