Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Minolta f300 camera whith an internal battery that needs to be replaced. Sending it to Minolta (Sony now) would require a flat fee of $181 which is of course morethan the value of he camera. I can remove the back case but the front case, which covers the internal battery, seems to be attached to the telephoto lens and does not seperate easily from the camer's internals. I don't want to force it and break something. What is the procedure for removing the front case? Thanks

Lens error I keep this Elph in a tiny, padded Halliburton case because the last TWO I bought ended up with broken screens. I never had a problem, though lightly used. Last night I recharged the battery and inserted it. Immediately upon power-up, the lens went out and I got a "Lens error, restart camera" error. I turned it on and off about twenty times, left the battery out overnight: same thing. I jiggled the lens with the same result. Canon tech support told me to take the battery out a

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5D which I really like. I take a lot of pictures outside with my job. I have a telephoto lens and a regular lense as well. I switch lenses a good bit depending on the shot. Everything was working well until I now get a message that reads "no lens attached" when there is a lense on the camera. The weird thing is that I only get this message on my regular lense and my telephoto lens works fine. I even carried my camera by a local Minolta/Konic dealer and they were baff

Problem with my D200 consists in the total absence of indication on the both monitors with the fully charged battery. What was the cause? It was presumably caused by the malfunctioning Tamron Di II SP 17-50 f2.8 lens motor.

My Nikon S210 is not focusing correctly. It's just recently started to act in this manner. I had a 'lens error' screen this summer after getting some sand in the lens from my pocket and I beat that one by 100's of 'on' then 'off' attempts and removing the battery when it wouldn't turn off. Literally a couple hundred times over the course of a week and it finally came around and started operating correctly.
