LCD Malfunctions I recently purchased a Fuji Finepix J10 8 Megapixal Digital Camera over a month. I like the camera and its functions; however, today when I tried to take a picture, I noticed that the LCD has dark streaking lines preventing visibility of previous taken pictures. I don't recall ever dropping it. I took back to store where it was bought, rying tto get a one-to-one exchange since it was purchased near the end of August this year. The store suggested that I send the camera back to F

FUJI FinePix S3500 Camera has been well looked after, never dropped but does not work at all, have asked salesmen and photographers in business but they said it was stuffed and buy a new one. I love my camera and feel it should still be going even though it is only 4 years old. Any clues as to what I can do??? Thanks Joan Woolfe [email protected]


Thank you FixYa for replying but I actually was in touch with Fuji and they told me that because I left the batteries in the camera, the camera becomes power hungry and eventually wrecks the mother board so there is no solution but to buy another one ... Fuji Digital Cameras

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer you zoom the worse the lines are. The lines cover the entire picture from top to bottom. I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.


Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens. ... Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera

Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

First verify that your camera is actually an SD500 (takes SD cards) and not an S500 (takes CF cards). If your camera is actually an S500, this would probably be a defective CCD imager.

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.

I have a Canon Digital IXUS 11s camera which has been displaying lines across the screen and it would not photograph.

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

Hi! I took several shots yesterday and went to upload the pix on my computer today and when I connected the camera to my computer the battery was at 100%. Then the camera completely shut off. I tried turning it back on with no result. I recharged the battery with the same result. I figured my battery must be dead ( yet only 1 year old) and purchased a new one. I fully charged that one and plugged my camera in again and the same thing happened! What could this be caused from? No damage has ever

All of a sudden our nikon coolpix P2 digital camera is stating lens error when we turn it on. the opening/closing mechanism will work and open but then after the photo lens thing comes out, it looks around and goes back inside the camera. I've tried to dust it a little with a soft brush, and jiggle it some but to no avail. I'm afraid repairing it will cost more than a new one. This one is 4 years old. Help!

Canon sd800is, 3 years old. Cannot get the computor and camer to each other. Blue light is not on. I had windows xp when I bought the camera and was able to transfere with no problem. As of this year have windows Vista. Cannot remember if I had attempted a transfere. I reinstalled the operations disk that comes with the camera. No drop box, nothing. Could it be that Vista, which has lots of quirks, is not compatible? Is there a download to fix it? Had to do that with my printer. pamann1

Dropped camera The camera, approximately 3 years old, was dropped from a sitting position. The zoom lense is extended and will not close. When the on/off button is pressed the small green light to the right on top of the view screen flashes and that is all. I wonder, is it worth trying to get it repaired?

Today my 5 yr old dropped our S1050 Samsung camera about 3 feet onto a wooden bridge and now the camera DOES turn on and WILL let me review the pictures I had taken up until that point. However, when attempting to take a picture the picture is out of focus and when I zoom IN it gets clearer but then the camera beeps 2 times and shuts off and closes up. It will let me snap an out of focus picture though. Is there any hope? This camera was expensiveand we've only had it a year. Thanks

I have never had any problems with my camera, it is about 2 years old. Recently, all my pictures have turned out blurry, it seems like the camera is just not auto focusing. I had a problem with this one day, then it started working again, and now it won't focus again. I don't understand if there is something wrong with my camera, or if I accidently pressed a button I shouldn't have.


If it happens when it is dark then you might have turned off the flash. otherwise ther might be a mechanical problem in focusing actuator in the lens. you could try to vaccuum the camera with a vaccuum cleaner on low power. in case there is dust insi ... Casio Exilim EX-Z77 Digital Camera

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!
