Kodak V803 I think this is due to the camera being dropped: The camera switches on but all that appears on the viewscreen is a white light accompanied by black patches of distortion. The distortion suggests that the camera has suffered an impact as it has the appearance of a smashed window - with lines of distortion running across the screen. The view screen itself - is in tact - no evidence of impact - cracks or dents. I cannot get rid of this screen distortion no matter what button I press. Wh

There are (apparently) some strange "pictures" taking up enormous space on my panasonic DMC-FZ20GN. Oddly, they don't appear as images on the camera, but black screens. When I try to delete them, I get the message "some pictures cannot be deleted". I have tried a reset of the camera, but with no success. How can I get rid of them? Peter Townsend. Sydney.


I think you have these locked on your camera. And usually when you see black it is a video.  Check out the info on the file when linked to your mac.  If it,s a video format you might need to view and delete in a video player program. ... Panasonic Digital Cameras

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do? I have air dusted it, gently pulled and twisted lens, restarted and recharge ba

I have a Casio EZ-Z1050 10.1 megapixel digital camera and am very pleased with it.

Advice as to how to delete from on the camera's on board memory would be very gratefully received. Thank you. Ron Bernstein.

I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

While in Aruba (91 degrees outside/70 degrees inside hotel room) my digital Pentax camera (Optio M50 model) developed a 'blob' in the LED view finder.

I thought about trying a hair dryer. Please advise. Thank you. Estelle


It certainly could be condensation. When it dried, it could have left a mark on the panel. As long as your pics turn out well, don't worry about it. If you try to take the panel off to clean it and you don't know what you're doing, you could cause ma ... Pentax Digital Cameras
