Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have a canon Power Shot S50. The mechanical slider that covers the lens is loose. When I open it, it doesn't power up the camera. I suspect there is a switch underneath the cover is broken.


Answers :

The open door button on a circuit board is usually micro. A loose cover will likely not make contact with this small switch. Take the cover off and tighten the screws on the inside. Try to locate the switch to inspect if it has been wore off, broken, or missing even.

I have a 3 year old Sony DCR-DVD202E Camcorder which has worked perfectly up until yesterday, when the lens cover refused to open.

None of this has worked. It is possible to open the cover manually, so it is

The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

My Panasonic Lumix DMC FS3 is not powering on fully.... When I switch the camera to the on position the green light blinks on and then off and the lens opens but the screen doesnt seem to power on.
