Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

The Canon PowerShort A1000 IS battery and memory card cover is very hard to close - feels like it is going to snap off. Is this usual, or do I need to have it serviced as camera is still under warranty? Thanks


Answers :

It would hard to access this problem without doing it. My suggestion would be to take it in to a camera repair shop, or Best Buy, and have a technician look at it. They will know if it's abnormal and if you should have it serviced under warranty without you having to send it in. Good luck, and hope this helps.

My Kodak Z1012 is camera doesn't work. I sent it to Kodak because it had a 1 year warranty. They mailed it back and said everything was fine but it still didn't work. I researched and many people said that it was the battery and that I needed to use a specific kind of Ion battery. I bought a Kodak KLIC 8000 rechargable battery and it still doesn't work. My year warranty has passed and now I am stuck with this camera that doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.


When you received the camera back from Kodak and you found it didn't work, you should have immediately contacted the support techs at Kodak and explained your situation. Then you would have been issued a complaint number and your camera could be retu ... Kodak EasyShare Z1012 IS Digital Camera

I purchased a Nikon Cool Pix Camera in December 2009. In April, I was unable to take pictures for some unexplained reason. I took the camera into Best Buy to have the Geek Squad look at it. They told me it was a problem that needed to be addressed by Nikon. They said that it was obviously not a case of damage or abuse. Long story short, I sent the camera back to Nikon in May with a letter, receipt and warranty. I need to ask why, 6 months later, I still have heard absolutely nothing from yo

Camera Failure I was taking pictures of my daughter on the beach last week and my camera just quit. The lens is still out. This has happened before when the battery died, but I charged the battery and it still won't work. I am pretty positive that I have an extended warranty on the camera (though it is only a few months old) but I can't find my paper work. What do I need to do? Do you think you know what is wrong with it? Amy

Built-in Battery I have a Dimage Z10 digital camera and it would appear that the 'built-in long-life battery' has now run out as my settings are no longer held when the camera is switched off. The manual suggests that the camera needs to go to a Konica Minolta service facility - as it is about four years and outside the warranty period is this something that I can do myself - if so how would I go about it?

I take a few shots and get the Error message 30 on my 50D- Always need to shut it off and then back on. Since I did soe net surfing, and since the camera makes a clear noise whn it goes into error mode, I am thinking it is surely a shutter problem. Anyone there confirm that it is a shutter problem? Note I was using a Sigma Lens at the time, so the little boys at my local shop are saying it is "not" the camera...of course it is still in warranty. I am looking for any HELP or ADVICE! Tony C

I have an old Daveco TR-05-A tripod I inherited. It was bought for use with an old 8mm Sony Handycam, but I would like to simply use it for a still camera. However, when I take the top assembly off, I cannot see the usual screw needed to sit the camera on top of, only a round ball-style pivot for the 8mm camcorder mechanism. Please advise.

My camera was recently bought at goodwill, and the CCD imager needs to be replaced I think. Every time that I go to take a picture, there is a streak of light running up and down the screen when I am near a light source. Will the fact that I bought it at goodwill effect the warranty in any way? Will it still be free to fix?


If it's under warranty and the camera doesn't have any sign of abuse and you have the warranty card for it then it should be free for you to get it fixed. I don't see why not. If the service center asks where you got the camera from tell them it was ... Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?
