My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.

I just some pictures with my SD card in my Nikon D40X. I've used the card many times, in fact I took some pictures last night and uploaded with no problem.

3 times i've the same problem with my camera, 3 times they've sent it back. The problem still exists. A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead. I was told by Canon that the battery lid on the camera was causing a short, they said 'Problem solved.' Nope, the problem is still there and i've run out of extended warranty. Please, please help.

My Sony 7.2 Cybershot camera recently ran out of battery, so I charged it. Once it was done charging, I put the battery back in. The screen showed up asking me to insert the current date and time, so I did so. Next, the zoom lense went out and in, out and in, and out and in while the screen said "Access". Next, it told me to turn the camera off and on again. Nothing happens when I do so, and I've done it about 10 times to no avail. Is this a fixable problem?

When I click on the download button, I get this message: "There is a connection error. Please check the troubleshooting guide in the user's manual." The troubleshooting guide suggests that I uninstall the PLD-822 driver and reistall it to solve the problem. I have tried this several times, but each time I try to download my photos I get the same message. I think the basic problem is the sticker on the binoculars "Made in China".
