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. I bought a new battery and it still dies quickly. Pictures taken have vertical lines and often are whited out. Anything I can do to fix this?

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings. I took the batteries out and the memory card for a half hour and put them back in. None of this worked. The best i can explaing is there horizpntal lines through the pictures. Any ideas??? My warranty is long expired. Just wonder if it's worth getting fixed or would it be better to purchase a new camera.

I had my nikon coolpix s210 in my bag and I bumped against a wall, not that hard it seemed. I checked my camera and everything seemed fine but once I turned it on a big crack appeared on the screen. Is it worth the fix or should I just buy a new one? I checked the camera shortly before I placed it in my bag so I don't think the break came before the incident. But I'm heart broken and desperate for my camera. Please help if possible. Thank you.

I believe I got salt water spray on my camera this past summer and now it is having various problems that come and go. Foremost is most pictures are washed out of color and there is horizontal lines in the pictures. Sometimes shutter doesn't open or close. Flash won't pop up. Running slow. Is this worth repairing or should I buy a new camera?

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. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another

Just received a mint condition Nikon Coolpix S4 swivel-head digital camera off eBay. Installed new AA alkaline (Duracell) batteries and a new 1GB SD card.

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.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

If it is the CCD, a) what is a CCD and b) is it fixable, or should I give up and get a new camera. I think this camera is over 2 years old. Pity, it has been very good for this ignorant user!

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

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.

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture? I love the camera and don't want to buy another one. I tried a different memory card and reset function under the menu.
