My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

I have a brand new G12 and have used it for the past 10 days. I loved it until it would no longer take pictures. This is the problem: I turn on the camera and the display screen is black. I take a picture and nothing appears. However, I have no problem viewing previous pictures taken before this issue. Can you please help....I really want to love the camera, but I should not be frustrated after 10 days. THANKS

Many thanks to everybody for your help, saves money and time. J.


\012Hello there,\012\012The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a f ... Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera

Cyber-shot T2 Hello This is probably a long shot but I have had my Sony cybershot T2 for about 1 month now and about 2 weeks ago it just died on me and it won't turn on. I didn't drop it, there is a not a single scratch on it, i have charged the battery 2 full but it just wont turn on. At the beginning it would flash as if it was turning on and then stop.

Suddenly a day ago, I turn it on and it pretends to "Boot" up....the display comes on with the "Finepix" graphic...the lens "Moves" into position....the "Green" power light on the right grip side come on, (and stays on)....then, Nothing. When I try to turn it off and restart...nothing. The camera will not even turn "off" unless I open the battery hatch, (I put a fresh set in). Please help...I love this camera.

No matter what I do, my camera keeps giving me a "Battery Depleted" message whenever I try to turn it on. It's a Pentax Optio E40, and I've only had it a couple of weeks. It was working fine, but then one day when I tried to turn it on, I got this error. I replaced the batteries, but the error still came. I've checked the orientation of the batteries, tried re-inserting them, etc, but nothing seems to work. Please help! Thank you!
