Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

Screen malfuntion. After several weeks of successful picture taking, the display screen suddenly blanked out. The camera still takes pictures, but nothing shows on the screen. I have to guess at how long I need to wait after pressing the on/menu button, to snap a picture.

It turns on but won't take a picture when you push the button! I downloaded the pictures on the card because I was told maybe it wouldn't worked due to a full card. It did have 2300+ photos, but only 77 new ones, which downloaded just fine. I deleted the card and tried to take a picture in normal mode, but nothing happened. It doesn't work in ANY mode...not even movie! We have had trouble with the lens protector doors jamming, but that's not the problem now. They open, lens goes into position an

Shutter Problem I have an Olympus C-750 that I was in love with until 5 days before my vacation when the shutter button decided to stop working. Zoom in and out still works, but the shutter will not respond to the button or the remote. The other strange symptom is when I turn the camera on, it snaps a picture (and then won't take anymore). Thought I might have managed to put it in a certain mode or hit some magic series of buttons to put it in this strange mode, but I can't undo it. Tried changi

My camera has a delayed response when I push the shutter button down to snap a picture-it takes 3-4 seconds and then the moment is gone! Another problem I have is the pictures moniter are blurry. Also, the battery life in the camera is extremely short. I charge them on a regular basis. (My daughter threw the camera on the floor in a rage)is there any way the camera can be fixed or will it cost just as much to buy a new, better one?

I've had my Panasonic Lumix DMC LX3 for about just 3 months. It has worked like a charm until today, when suddenly several things have gone whack, as if the calibration died. I just uploaded pix to my computer, but I can't erase them from the camera. The buttons do not respond. When I turn the camera on, it goes immediately to the "Burst Shooting" window, and doesn't respond to the select buttons. It just blinks and beeps on the "Normal" selection. When I try snapping a picture, nothing happens.
My camera problems have been resolved, although I can't attest to how or why. After about six hours, as I prepared to pack off the little guy to the manufacturer, everything had gone back to normal. I'm left only to speculate that maybe the camera ad ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 Digital Camera

I have an Olympus D-460 Zoom 1.3 megapixel which I've had about a year. I bought it used and it was working fine up until about a week ago. Whenever I snapped a picture the button seemed to get stuck and nothing would happen and also the flash wouldn't go off. I would have to close the lens and re-open it again to get it working. Do you think that maybe the batteries I'm using are too weak? Let me know. Thanks.
Yes, you are right. The batteries have gone out of power for sure. I had a similar problem with my cam sometime before. The battery actually doesnt gets 100% discharged. Itworks whenever you repower the cam. But when taking a picture it just needs mo ... Digital Cameras

Oops . . . I dropped my camera and all seemed fine until I tried to depress the button that snaps the picture and it seems slightly damaged and will not depress. =( Is this fixable????
It depends on the camera. Repairing a shutter release button on most point and shoot cameras is a simple repair. Some cameras though can be costly and time consuming. Impact damage is always hard to analise until the camera is opened up. ... Norcent Technologies DC-420 Digital Camera
