Hi, I have a Pentax istD (year 2006). It is stating that there is a memory card problem but when we use another memory card we get the same error. We have checked the memory card in another camera and there is no problem. Any suggestions as to what we can do to fix it/boot the camera etc? thanks Sharyn
Were these memory cards used in another camera? Did you download pictures at one time and forgot to use the "safely remove hardware" function? You may just need to format the cards in the camera to get them working again. This will erase them so down ... Pentax Digital Cameras

Problem fixed Hi folks. Just want to let you know the problem with my camera with no image on screen is fixed. I took it to a repair guy and he had to open the camera and service the shutter. Seemed there was some dust or grit affecting the operation of the shutter. It was cleaned and camera is working fine. Thanks for all the advice. Hope my solution is helpful to you out there.

Olympus D340R I received this camera off of freecycle.com with the person saying she did not know if it worked or not. In the box was a sheet of paper saying it had been sent in for repairs but the problem was not fixed. The camera is taking pictures but the LCD remains black. We found out it is taking pictures by putting the memory card into the computer. Is there some way we can fix this problem ourselves or do you have any suggestions? This is an older camera but wanted it for my son to just

My touch screen of samsung ST550 camera isn't working. I cant switch on the dual screen because the button on the bottom left isn't working. I was just taking some pictures of water and a very little bit of water splashed into my camera. I wiped the water off and that's when the problem started. How should i fix the problem? I dont think the water created the problem because the amount of water which splashed into my camera was very small. Thank you.

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

Lense error- can hear lense trying to open, but lense does not come out of the camera body. This is weird because the camera was not dropped/hit/damaged. I used the camera to take night images of a rising moon. It took pics fine, but about an hour later when I tried to turn the camera on to review the pics, I got the lense error as noted above. 4 days later, same problem. The manual doesn't have any troubleshooting for this problem. Any suggestions? Anyone.....? Thanks for your time!

My Canon SD 870 Camera came with a free SD card. Everything seems fine with the card until I try to download the pictures to my computer. I used the camera to format the card after the first time I had problems. I assumed this would fix it but it has happened again. I don't have problems with my other memory cards, just the one this camera came with. I can view the most recent pictures using the camera but how do I transfer the pictures to my computer? Thanks.

Camera problem Hi, I see you did follow my advice , saved what you could, and the result was a corrupted memory card as I suggested. Normally on Fixya this is given a fixya mark, as it was a correct diagnosis - leading to a solution. By giving this mark, it shows a positive course of action for other to follow who have similar problems. I wish you to consider rating this as a fixya instead of a thanks for trying, as this mark is for comments that were tried but do not lead to a solution. Thank y

Focus problem My grandson just received a new Nikon camera for Christmas. He assembled the wide angle lens prior to doing any other set up. Now he can't focus it without the wide angle lens in place. The camera has auto-focus. Can you advise a fix? We tried the Reset button on the side ,but this didn't fix it. Thanks
The factory presets would not have been affected by your grandson doing as you describe. Depending on what other lenses he might be trying to use, many have a separate switch located on the barrel of the lens to turn auto focus on or off. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

The camera is 8.1 Mega Pixels, Model # DSC-N1. The problem: the pictures that come out are reddish and the snapshot is delayed by a few seconds whereby the camera displays "capturing" and then "processing" messages. Please help with 'how to fix' this problem. My initial thought is that it might be a wrong setting. Thank.
It sounds like you may have changed the white balance setting. The other problem could be that your memory card is getting full or needs to be reformatted. ... Sony Digital Cameras

I tried changing the setting, turned of the camera and restarted it, removed the battery and put it back in. Nothing I could think of would make the camera focus.

Hi, My Nikon Coolpix S3000 flash has stopped working after only 3 weeks of having the camera and an aeroplane icon is also showing on the display. I have had the camera at elevation and in humidity, but with a new camera I would think this would not be a problem. I have also charged the camera totally but the flash still does not work. Please advise me any fix. Many thanks Shelley
Sounds like you somehow put the camera in "airplane" mode which keeps the camera from interfering with the electronics on an airplane. Change the mode. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera
