When I turn on my PowerShot A80 the view screen is distorted or blank. When I snap a picture it comes out black. I can still review pictures that I have already taken with no problem. I have put in new batteries but it doesn't help.

My Pentax Optio 430RS seems incapable of taking more than one photo before it freezes. Powering off retracts the lens, but then it comes out again immediately, but I'm unable to take a picture. Removing the battery and then putting it or another fully-charged one allows a picture to be taken, but then back to the beginning again.

Kodak V1003 A few weeks ago, shortly after I'd taken a pic, the lens refused to retract and the camera switched off. It has never been dropped or had anything spilled on it. Strangely, when I press the button furthest left the camera comes on, allows me to view pictures on the card, set the time etc - everything except take pictures. Again when I try to switch off, the lens does not retract. Does this not suggest a software glitch of some kind?

No, unfortunately that is a problem with the hardware, software would not prevent the lens from retracting.\015\012\015\012If it is within manufacturer's warranty (usually 1 year) take it to any Best Buy they will send it out to the mfg f ... Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 Problem: Camera is not saving photos Hi, my camera started responding very slugglishly yesterday. I took a few pictures, and some of them wouldn't save. If I tried to switch my camera off, the screen would freeze on the "Saving photos". I checked the SD card on my laptop and those photos were coming up as blanks. I formatted the card and the camera recognises it, but it's still not saving photos. When I try to view the photo I've just taken, the screen goes blank

Are you formatting the card in the camera as you're supposed to? Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset" and followed the on-screen instructions? Do you have photos on the internal memory? If so, remove your card and format the camera ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 / DMC-FT1 Digital Camera
