Hi, I bought the Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD a week back. I have noticed a strange problem with the LCD screen or is it the sensor? In low light situations when you turn the camera on, the screen is not clear and there are disturbances in the form of blue dots across the LCD which appear like a screen refreshing phenomena. The same can be observed in the EVF also. Is there a problem with the sensor of the camera. The best way to notice this problem is by keeping your hand fully in front of the l

My Canon SX210 IS is brand new. Just bought it on yesterday. The problem I'm having is that the LCD screen does not look sharp and clear when focusing on a subject. It looks grainy. Can you tell me if I need to adjust the settings on the camera? I was indoors in low lighting, but I've never seen the LCD look this way on a camera. The LCD is always clear and sharp when focusing.

Some cameras display a grainy picture in low light. Do you have the camera set to the highest number of megapixels and fine image or do you have it set to a lower resolution to get more pictures on the card? ... Canon PowerShot SX210 IS Digital Camera

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen. I talked to customer support and they told me that Installing the new version of their firmware, v1.01 would fix this problem. I've since installed the new firmware version, but I am still receiving the lens error. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Please help!!!

As solutions 1 & 2 indicate, lubing the gears works!! This is a great camera, so I hope all of the QV-R4 owners try this. I may become a maintenance item for the camera.\015\012 \015\012I have a few a ... Casio QV-R4 Digital Camera

Hi.. My Olympus Stylus 710 camera is one year old and I have been having problems with it recently. Basically the camera is unusable right now. When i press the power, the lens open halfway, the picture on the LCD is blurry and one second after the lens close and an error appears of the screen saying "D: 5f08 5f0e 5f08 5e02". Can you help me fix this problem? Sending the camera back to Olympus to fix will cost a bundle and where I live, no one fixes digital cameras.

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

Every time I turn on my Canon A540 Powershot I get the black date/time screen. The date/time is all zero (the photo properties default to 1 Jan 1980) and I have to either enter the date/time or press Func/Set to clear the screen. Whichever option I take.. the same thing happens every time. Is there a way to make the date/time "stick"? I first noticed the problem when one set of batteries was low.. but new batteries didn't solve it. Any ideas? Camera doesn't have a lot of miles..

Hi, I have two Cannon 40D Cameras and am experiencing problems with both at the moment. One Camera is very slow after pushing the button to take a photo. I have checked all of the batteries and this is not the problem.

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.

Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
