Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I dropped my camera on the groud, and now the lense will not come out at at all??? idk wat to do.. havent even had it for a year.
If you have a good warranty, time to cash it on it. Your camera's worth dropped about 50%. It will most likely be the same price to fix as it is to sell it. You can try to yank the lens back into its socket. I have done it before myself. I can usually get it back in, but it will usually not be good as new afterwords. =[

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer you zoom the worse the lines are. The lines cover the entire picture from top to bottom. I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.
Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens. ... Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera
No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old). I noticed a few last year that didn't turn on even when brand new fresh batteries were put in. The battery chambers are clean with no apparent damage. I am now up to 8 cameras with this problem. They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?

Camera Despair I have a Sony cybershot DSC-W70. It was bought last year in october from St.Martin, The camera fell on it's lense when taking pics and for a while, it wasn't taking pics...error was appearing on the screen and it was sticking out even when the power was off, but the everything else was working on the camera.

Yesterday I downloaded successfully, as usual, my pictures from the camera into the computer. I made 7 more pictures last night. Today, I tried to download them, but the computer had a "non recognizable files" message. I restarted the computer (a Mac OSX), but now it wouldn't even detect the camera! I tried to see if my 10 years old pressed a button on the camera by mistake, and, after I press the "format" button in the Menu I lost even the images in the camera! 1. How can I get the computer to

Rollei dp 6200 - I have problems with trying to charge the battery. It rapidly loses the charge - within a copule of hours one third of the charge is lost and within 24 - 36 hours it is completely falt. This ia all without using the camera. I have changed the memory card as Rollei Service told me that the camera does not support 1GB, but even with 512MB it is the same. This has been going on for a couple of years at least and the original camera was replaced by Rollei within the first two years

Good evening, I have a DSC F717 serial no 1749705. I lent this camera to my son some years ago and had it returned recently. As I tried to relearn my way around the camera I discovered that the image as seen both through the eye piece and on the display appeared to be stripey a bit like a night shot of car tail lights. The image is unclear. My son has not been using the camera for some years, possibly , and it was stored in his roof space. Any thoughts Please. Drew Wigham

Overexposure, Underexposure I have had my camera (Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1) camera for 2 years. Over the past year I have had difficulty with underexposure and overexposure mostly when taking pictures indoors, even with the exposure set to normal (0). I can take a picture of my kids, one of them will be overexposed, the next one underexpsoeed, and if I am lucky, I might get a good one every now and then. Is this fixable? Help!

Digital camera I have a digital camera (Pentax Optio A10) and just recently the camera stop working. Every time I turn on the power button, the lens zoom out and a few seconds later the camera will turn off, and the lens will come back in. I bought a new battery thinking it help, but it still does the same thing. The camera is not even 2 years old yet and I paid over $300 for it. HELP?!?!
I had almost similar problems with my A10 from day one. The camera shuts down before the battery is depleted, most of the time while I was operating the zoomlens. I bought a new battery, but that didn't solve it. Later I decided to take it apart as a ... Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera
The camera that I have is an red HP A730 with 7 megapixels. I've had it for about 3 years and it's always worked just fine. But, recently I lost my memory card. My camera still worked with out it. Anyway, the other day I tried to turn my camera on and it didn't work for some reason. I thought it was the batteries, so I changed them, but the light indicating that it's on flashed for a second and then turned off. Now, even though I'm using new batteries, my camera will not turn on. I will admit, I

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

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.
You probably got some condensation on the lens from going in and outside. You should be able to go to a Wolf Camera or similar store and have it cleaned. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
CCD Problem My HP Photosmart 945 camera's CCD broke down, and I'm told that there's no way to repair it, because HP does not sell the part. What could I do?. Is it possible to install another make's CCD or any solution that might help. Please, do not refer me to HP customer support service, because it sucks! They only offer a "refurbished camera" and only God knows what that could be!. Thanks in advance. P.S.: I know the camera is old (even though to me three years is not that much), but it work
There is Sony CCD in you camera. I had the same problem (HP has no solution to this problem). I bought the new Sony CCD and put it in my HP. The camera works perfect now. :-) ... HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera
Nikkon DS1 I have to go to an event this evening, New Year's Eve, at the Rio. I haven't had my Nikkon very long and I have had nothing but trouble with it. I'm sure its not the camera, I'm sure its me not knowing how to use it properly. I did not receive a user's manual when I purchased this camera and I can't seem to get one. I have the camera set on automatic and most of the time, it does okay. However, my shutter when I hold it down seems to take a long time and then I'm getting a blurry pict

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

I have a Kodak Easyshare model dx5430 digital camera (5mp). It has worked like a champ for years. Last night I was at an event when the image display went dark at picture 31. All preceding photos were able to be reviewed. The camera flash works fine. The camera displays all the other characteristics of a working unit. It turns on and off; the flash works, the menu is accessible - everything. It just doesn't register any photos. Even in close-up mode, there is nothing. It's as if the lens cap is

No Flash My camera got a little wet at a themepark, and I fear it's damaged. At first the flash was being a little faulty, but now it won't flash at all no matter what I do. And the little green off/on light stays on even when the camera is turned off. I've had this camera for less than a year- I don't want to buy a new one already!
Pull the battery and memory card and keep them out for a while. If you are confident you could successfully open and reassemble your camera you could attempt to open it up to dry it out.Otherwise, take a can of compressed air and point the nozz ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
