I have a Samsung VP-D353i camcorder and since I used the Nite Shutter to film in darkness the other day, it will no longer allow me to record hardly anything at all. All I can get on the viewfinder is a bright white screen and when I try to play a tape back, I can only get any sound on it with the viewfinder pulled out, but then I get no picture as it's still all white. I read somewhere that the charge coupled device might be damaged? Can anyone help please?

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.

PLEASE HELP! We have a sony cybershot (dsc-s40) and when I turned it on today the screen was bright white. It still makes all the sounds when I push buttons, but the screen does not change. I down;oaded pics off the memory card, but the screen still does not change. Please help? I am having the same exact problem.. Did anyone figure out how to fix this???


It sounds like the lcd is broken or loose. The backlight is still working properly, which is why you only see white. You could try to open the camera and push in the ribbon for the lcd, or bring it to someone who knows what they are doing. HOWEVER ... Casio Exilim EX-Z57 Digital Camera

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything. Any ideas? Has anyone had this problem before? Camera is only a year old so hope it's not broke! thanks for the help.

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.


I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...
