Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?
Canon 20d camera. I'm no longer able to bring up the menu, picture review, and info when i click the buttons. Its odd that all 4 buttons, even the jump don't work, so I'm thinking its a problem in the software.
i also am having a hard time focussing on the simplest things now. any advice?
Try to reset your camera there will be tiny hole near the battery .You can press it to reset to factory settings .If this doesnot work you need to take to service people to get it repaired .Mostly software problem occurs in canon camera.
Check your firmware version- it should be 2.0.3; if not, you can download an \015\012update through the canon website : http://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/controller?act=DownloadDetailAct&fcategoryid=314&modelid=10464

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on. But not much at all. But my camera has completely stopped working and its stuck with the zoom out and everything. But it might also be a battery problem since I dont have my battery charger and dont know if the camera died but I dont think it would die with the lens still exposed. I have a Sone DSC-W50.

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.

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
It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

My BH-10 camera (USB) works fine with ULEAD Photo Express 4.0(as the download picture from camera tool) , and also works fine with WINDOWS NetMeeting as a video source. So i think the USB Camera Driver that came with the unit is operational on my Windows XP Pro However, i cannot get Skype Ver 188.8.131.52 on the same Win XP machine to recognize the BH-10 USB camera. Totally refuses. Any Ideas? Is it a Driver problem compatibility w/ Skype?

I have a Panasonic PVGS19 Mini DV Camcorder. The problem is the flip screen. Will not work when fully open. There is a picture when it is opened at about 1/4 of the way. Also, when opened and flipped over ( self portrait mode) and closed the image is upside down. Thinking it is a mechanical connection between the camera and the LCD that either need some cleaning or repair. Can I do this myself? Not cost affective to have repaired by service, I am sure.

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand

I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in vain.I found one workaround but it seems to work for very short time. Just open the battery cover,take out all batteries and then insert ,then turn on,it MAY work for 10 sec.Please suggest what may be wrong and what to do.
Make sure that the battery terminals in your camera are clean (rub them with a pencil eraser, q-tip or micro fiber cloth). Dirty terminals can cause poor contact with your batteries, therefore, impacting there performance.Also, if you ar ... Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
Tokina AT-X PRO 28-80mm 1:2.8 lens has recently developed a problem when mounted on my Nikon D200. The images are way too dark and my only way to obtain usable images is to bracket heavily. This lens has worked flawlessly on film Nikons and, until recently, worked flawlessly on the D200. I am now also having AF problems with the lens. When I attach any of my Nikon brand lenses - no problems. Can you help? I really love this lens.
I have this lens also but with a canon mount and loved it to death when i had film. I started to use it on the digital and like your experience it worked well for a while then started to produce faulty registered photos.. too dark and some too light. ... Digital Cameras
I was at the baech, taking pictures of all the wavee formations, and all of a suddon the zoom stoped working. It has been almost a year now, and the zoom STILL doesn't work.

The HP Photosmart M537 is a 3-year old camera that was $100 when new. Yours is defective by your own admission and you want to sell it for "top dollar" to some poor soul? In its present condition, it's worth about $3 for parts. Even if the zoom worke ... Fuji Digital Cameras

Please let me know what could be the problem.I checked it is not problem with battery

I got Canon EOS Kiss 450D (Japan). Recently, the problem i encountered is ERR 99. I have read an article that it might be with the body lense "connection" and some might arise from battery problem. Also, im wondring whenever I charge the battery, after only 20 minutes the charger would blink red and green. Unlike before that when its already full charge it would only change from red to green. So i was thinking the ERR 99 might also be due to the battery. Is this really normal for the charger? Is

I seem to be having problems connecting my Fujifilm Finepix J210 with my computer. When the hardware wizard auto intalls the drivers it shows a message that there may be problems using the hardware. We have tried updating/changing the driver which makes no difference and we know that there is no issue with the camera as it works on another computer.
