I'd like to set my Stylus 790SW back to default settings in hopes that my video feature will work. Right now the video doesn't record. It's just a picture. I've been messing with this camera for 4 hours and cant get this thing back to original settings. Is there a magic trick? If I send this to Olympus to be looked at, it will be it's 3rd trip since to the New York repair shope since I bought it 2 years ago.

Battery door hinge or snap does not secure tightly, thus battery contact not good. For first aid I have fixed temporarily with strong rubber band. But that is not consistent. Kadak repair center estimates $90.o00 for repair! I can get another newer one for less that $100! Does any independent shop repair these? Or is there another better alternartive fix?? Thanks in advance for good ideas! Hank

I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 that I can't get the flash to go off on. The only flash setting that works on my camera is no flash setting and the icon for the no flash symbol appears white. The rest of the settings such as automatic flash with red-eye, and automatic flash, ect... are red. Is this a settings issues or a repair issue? If it is a repair issue could you tell me what on the camera needs to be repaired. Weather it be the LED light is broken or a resistor or transistor on the circuit
