Canon 30D DSLR: Right, top finger dial spins free sometimes

\015 Hi, on my Canon 30D DSLR the finger dial on top at right (controlled by the right index finger; it basically controls manual settings) is spinning freely sometimes. I'll spin the dial and sometimes there's no resistance or clicking anymore, and no change in settings. Sometimes it catches and adjusts the settings, but 40% of the time it just spins, particularly when dialed to the left. Do I need a pro to fix this, or can I open up the case and take a stab at it myself? I figure some gear is just missing a bit. Any tips would be very appreciated. Thank you very much. Scott\015

I am a freelance writer. I have a Canon PowerShot A1000IS that I use to take photos to go along with articles I write for the local paper. Recently almost all the pictures I take are blurry on the top 1/3 of the photo. It hasn't always been this way and it doesn't happen all the time so it makes me think that possibly I have somehow gotten some of the settings off. The bottom 1/3 is sometimes a little blurry too but not as much as the top. Can anyone tell me what would cause this and what I can

Sony DSC-S700 when turned on sometimes the screen is blurry and pink toned with blurry grey lines running accross the screen. Photos turn out the same. Happens intermittently. Have changed batteries, checked to ensure the dial on the top was centered on Auto Adjustment setting. Doesn't matter what setting display looks the same: pink and blurry with the lines. Checked all the settings in the menu. Not sure why it does this...worried it may be a board problem.

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl
