Mpvr troubleshoot I have had the mpvr for two months and it has worked fine but i noticed after the last time i charged the battery and turned it on, it brought up the title screen and would go to a black screen as if a lens cap would be on or something. anyways after about ten seconds it will automatically turn off. another thing i noticed is it won't turn on auto when you flip the screen open but that you have to manually push the button open.

I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue.

A classic one... so it seems, but I could not find an answer here or elsewhere. My Lumix DMC-FP1 normally can be turned on by either opening the lens cover or by pushing the 'ON' button.

I have downloaded service/repair manual but there are no hints on how to fix. Can it be fixed? That is the question.

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?

My flash (EOS rebel T2i) isn't popping up automatically and i was advised to try wiggling the "manual release" button for the flash to the left and right and see if it will catch on the mechanism and then try pushing the button to see if the flash pops up.

Photos can't be downloaded to iphoto as per usual. Instead only print option is offered on the camera screen. Can't get it to offer any other option. Once, iphoto used to open automatically once you connected the usb cable between camera and laptop. That stopped happening some time ago but pix could still be transferred by selecting iphoto manually.

Camera takes photos without actually "focusing" on the object. Seems their is no "prefocus" with the button. As soon as you touch the focus button, the camera automatically takes the photo. When the camera was working correctly, you'd push the focus button half way down and then it would do it's job. Now it just takes the shot if you barely even touch the button. Not good...........

We have Nikon Cool Pix 8800 - we have struggled with the camera from day 1 having a long delay between pushing shutter buttom and photo being taken. It seems recently that the problem has gotten so bad that anything other than a still picture is a frustrating moment. We believe we are shooting on automatic. If there isn't a setting that is wrong we are clearly on our way to selling the camera but we don't even feel good about that the way it currently works. Thanks Lynn
