Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?


Answers :

Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it.

Format Error I have a SDSC-W55 with a 2GB SanDisk memory card. On a recent vacation, the camera just stopped taking pictures and displayed FORMAT ERROR on the screen. The card was half full and the battery had sufficient charge. I was initially able to display the pictures I took so I stopped using the camera. Now I cannot display any pictures at all. The camera displays the same error. My PC will not recognize the memory card. If I pull the card, the camera and PC works fine with the inter

Camera - Fujifilm Finepix A500. The screen goes blank when taking a picture. It does not take the picture and although the screen goes blank and only comes on again when the power button is pushed the lens remains out. It does retract if switching the camera off. There are new batteries in the camera and a different set has also been tried.


What worked for me with the same problem is to reformat your internal memory and/or picture card. First, download all your pictures saved from your camera to your computer, since the reformat will wipe them off the camera memory. Next, follow the ins ... Fuji FinePix A500 Digital Camera

Is there a way to "restart" my Casio Exilim EX-Z700? While I was taking a picture it seemed to freeze while it was trying to display the picture I just took - then, with the lens still popped out the screen stayed blank and it turned off, and now it won't turn on. The lens is still stuck in the "out" position. No buttons work. I tried to put it in the cradle to charge, and tried a different battery as well. Nothing works. Camera is dead!


Normally changing the battery solves this.Make sure you replace it with a good quality new battery and make sure it goes in the right way around as when you get in a flap it often ends up in the wrong way! ... Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera

I have a Samsung camera that does not use batteries but charges on a wall charger. The batter is fully charged. I was scrolling through pictures when the screen just went blank. It will not take pictures and once turned on will not go back off without removing the rechargable battery. The camera will not take pictures or anything. It plays the startup music when turned on but thats it. The camera has not been dropped or damaged.

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Olympus X-42 Camera - the screen has gone white (with a few thin green/purple vertical lines). When I switch on the camera the screen is white, there is no picture or menu displayed. I have checked by plugging it into the tv, and it takes pictures and goes into menus fine - it just doesn't display anything on camera screen. I have only had the camera for a week, and have not stored it anywhere humid. Is there anything I can do to fix, or do I just have to take it to get repaired?

When I turn it off, it buzzes again two or three times, the screen goes blank, but the lens does not retract. The battery is charged, and the problem is the same whether in picture or display mode, whether plugged into the computer or not.
