I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera. Everything else is fine, I can see the picture perfectly. It's just the lens that won't go back inside. How can I fix this myself without buying a new camera, or having to pay someone to fix it?

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking.

Camera dropped My son accidently dropped my C743 digital camera. It must have hit on the right side top corner because now the screen is all white with a black triangle outline through the top right side through the middle of the screen. The camera still takes good pict., but you cant see what you took, and what is the use of having a digital camera then?

Camera was dropped in water for just seconds. It won't change between modes: play, video rec, and still shot. It is constantly in still shot mode. The battery dies quickly.

Can you tell me where to purchase a new lens? My daughter dropped my camera, Kodak easy share M1063, and it does not open anymore. Probably a gear is off inside the housing, which I could not open without smaller screwdrivers. I figure it would be easier to replace the whole lens. I have already taken it apart and know that I can replace the lens if I can find one. I had an estimate for an online repairman to fix it for $85 + shipping. For that price I might as well purchase a new camera. Only r

I cannot turn the camera on. I guess it was dameged during my holidaying. I recall that, the camera was excidently turned on inside its holder and as the mechanism tried to push the lense out from the body it was blocked by the bag holding the camera. Now, when I try turning the camera on, the lense could not move forward at all. It gives cracking noises and turns itself off. Could this problem be fixed or better to buy a new camera? Arthur
