The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another

My camera won't turn on but it'll let me view all my pictures just fine. I think their might be a problem with the shutter because it sticks out a bit. When I try to turn my camera on it'll show the FujiFilm Welcome Screen and then just go to a black screen. If there is anyone who knows how to fix this without taking it to get fixed professionally please tell me, i would be very grateful of that! If not, and you know where they can fix it (other then sending it back to the company) please inform

My Panisonic Lumix was dropped in the lake in its case last summer. I dried it out and it still works great. The only thing is now when I take photos of things that are dark like night time photos or a room painted a dark color small spots show up. I am assuming that those are water spots on the lense. What is the best way o fix this problem? Thanks.
If these spots are in different places on each picture, then they are actually reflections of dust particles in the air from the flash being so close to the lens. If they are in the same place on each picture, then they are indeed water spots on the ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
The screen for my panasonic lumix dmc fs15 appears to be broken. I've only had it for six months! The display is now White with a small dark patch to one side, and diagonal lines across the screen.

Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen. I have replaced the batteries, tried changing settings and nothing works. I too can see the icons and view previously taken pictures but can take no new ones. I feel that paying $350 for a disposable camara is a bit much! I purchased it just a little over a year ago. I saw on the Canon website that they are fixing

My camera (s1075) is not taking any pictures or lettin me view my pictures due to the lens being frozen. it is stuck between open and close state and so will not open when i switch the camera on nor will it close. when switched on the camera shows the samsung screen but nothing else after that (both when i switch camera on and when i try to view my pictures)..is there anyway i can reset the camera or fix the problem manually (considering i cannot see any other screen besides the start up samsung
Sorry, it doesn't sound like a quick fix is going to work here. The lens sounds like it took a pretty good hit and may be misaligned now, which is keeping it from fully retracting. Your best bet is a service center at this point. ... Samsung S1070 Digital Camera
Camera's screen is blank. Its currently stuck in video mode so i can record and view it on the computer but i cannot see what i am recording via the touch screen. i thought it was the screen so i got a replacement of ebay but that still hasnt fixed it. This all occurred from a minor drop. It was sitting on its bottom on the table and got tapped forward and has had a blank screen ever since.. approx 2years old.
It might have a hairline crack or broken connection in one of the circuitry inside. I'm sure you might be able to find it coz you were able to replace the screen your self (?) good luck! ... Sony DSC-T70 Digital Camera
