I am having a problem with my camera. It works in the sense that it turns on and takes pictures. However, the both the digital lcd display and normal finder display remain black, even after removing the lens cap. I let a friend borrow it a little while ago and I suspect they may have changed some settings, but I'm not sure what to look for to fix it. When it takes pictures, they come out looking very distorted and strange. But, it does take pictures, the flash goes off and a picture records. c

I can turn my sd1000 on, the flash works, everything works. The only thing is that I can't see what's going on through the lcd, but when I take a picture the picture does come up.

My Sony Steady Shot DSC-H5 says "recording" when I am taking regular pictures. Uses up the memory stick quite quickly, although it lets me take about 30 pictures...!!!

I gave my son an EasyShare camera for his birthday in late December, and he loved it until a few days ago (early April) when the buttons to navigate up/down, left/right suddenly stopped working. It still takes pictures and the "OK" button in the center still works, but since the other buttons don't work he can't look at his pictures or otherwise navigate through the menus. We are frustrated and disappointed with this product. Let me know if you have any advice.
