Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I've had my Nikon D40x now for about two months, brand new etc. I was sat by the pool today and someone dived in, sending a few splashes onto me and the camera, hardly enough to damage it at all, and i dried it straight away.
But still, i tried to turn the camera on and it would not, no sign of life or anything. So i put it into the hot water cupboard overnight, and still nothing??
Could anyone suggest anything, please?? :S

Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
Oh no maybe you used different adaptor some adaptor have reverse polarity. check the adaptor before plugging it..if you using variable voltage set to 3v then adjust also the polarity. the polarity should match the polarity of your camera. ... Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera
Was taking pics last night at Disney World, went to put camera away & the lens would not go back in. Tried putting fresh batteries in and still nothing. Today tried again & camera comes on saying Lens Error! It's making a noise like it's trying to go in but nothing. Also nothing else working on camera either. Any suggestions please.
Get a can of compressed air, attach the included straw, aim it at the crevice where the body and lens housing meet. Now give it two or three good blasts and power the camera at the same time to see if the lens retracts, if not! take the ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

My eos350d camera has stopped working. There is no sign of life at all. I have tried to change the battery and even the small disk battery, but there is still no sign of life. Is there any chance of the camera working again, or is it completely dead? If there is a chance of the camera working, what can be done?
Annmelba, I think you'll find the EOS to be a fairly durable series. Just to cover your bases, I would clean the inside battery contacts with a Q-tip and some alcohol. That said, I suspect you may have to take your camera to an authorized ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
My camera would not go on, I changed batteries etc, then I took the card out and the camera when on but i could not take pictures, When I put the card in again it would not go on. i took it to a camera place and they tried another card but the same thing happened. They said that the problem lay with the card dock, is there anything can be done.

My camera fell down in the water. I didn't put it on until such time that arrived home. My husband opened it and removed the sand from the sides of the camera. It was just basically cleaned. However, everytime I would use it, it will only last for a few minutes then it would say "Battery empty". I've tried different cables already to charge it and even the universal charger but still it won't. No word that would say charging will come out. I am not also sure if its the battery or the camera that

Card Locked! It is definitely NOT the lock tab. This is my sisters camera. She has used this card for a while. She took it out to try out a card I gave her and when she put the original back in the camera, it says "Card Locked!" whenever anything that would alter its contents is attempted. I have tested this card in my own camera and it works and I tried my card in her camera and that works. Why is this one card suddenly showing up to this one camera as locked?
The best solution is to get all the data off of the card then remove the card ... its easier to just replace the card.....but you can try to fix it your self if u think u can simply take a pair of pliers and remove the tab make sure that the sl ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera
We have a Kodak 8.2 mega pixel camera that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I took pictures and then uploaded them onto my computer. Unplugged everything. When I went back to delete the pictures off the camera card, the camera would not turn on or do anything. I tried to charge the battery but when everything is plugged in it is still totally dark. We purchased a new battery thinking that was the problem and still nothing. When the charger in plugged in there is nothing - no lights at all.

Camera locked Hi, I've got the blinking battery symbol when I switch on my K100D. I've tried switching to manual focus and leaving for a while with the batteries out, but still the same issue. It works ok with external power supply, so I uploaded ver 1.02 firmware to see if that would solve the issue but still the same fault. Is there anything else you can suggest I try? Thanks, Brian
Put in new batteries. If you're using rechargeable batteries, they already have a lower voltage than regular batteries. If you don't have enough milliamps in the battery, it will show as low, no matter what the voltage is. ... Pentax K100D Digital Camera
Camera information I traded for a largan chameleon, not knowing the value of the camera, and I have no instruction manuel or any connection to my computer.

Water damage? A little bit of water got on my camera. Once I noticed, I wiped it off and tried to turn the camera on and it wouldn't. Once I got home, I charged the battery, thinking maybe that would help. I put the battery back in and now there is an orange/red light on the front of the camera that won't go away, and it still won't turn on.

Won't focus I was out shooting some sports the other day and all of a sudden my camera (D70 with a 200mm lense) would not focus and started going a little crazy. however, it would still take a shot occasionally. when i tried to change the menu, the menu itself on the monitor was jumping around and wouldnt let me select anything. then suddenly it worked again. then again, just as suddenly, it stopped working. this has never happened before and I'm at a total loss other than to take it to a dealer
