Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

I have just bought the Kodak M381 camera and when I set the date and time and click ok, the time is set but does not display on the LCD screen at any point, so when I review my pictures there is no way of knowing when I took them. You can date the pictures retrospectively but that takes time and will be incredibly tedious and you soon forget. In the manual it says to select the date time stamp but I am unable to find it in my set up menu and I'm beginning to think this camera does not have this

Image quality Hi. When I'm taking photos and set my exposure manually on my Canon 20D, the image looks right exposed on my LCD screen, but when I download all the photos on my PC, all the photos are VERY DARK. This takes lots of time for me to edit it and then after I've got the right brightness on my PC I discovered that the image quality is VERY BAD!!! There is lots of noise on the image. Can someone help me to find a solution to correct the exposure on my camera, so that I can save time on my

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

Still pics My camera used to take beautiful still photos but wouldn't take camcorder movies (20 secs at a time). Now that is all it takes, and I would rather have the still pictures. I have checked the settings but no matter which one it says- pc-cam or dsc it still does the same thing. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

DSC-W70 The camera seems to work as it should however when I take a picture, the resulting image on the LCD screen is distorted. By this I mean that lines appear horizontally across the screen. The only time that it works well is when I take it out of normal mode and set it to Multi Burst. However with Multi Burst, the flash does not work.

Software problem The Casio EXZ75 makes you go through the setup menu every time you turn it on. There is no way to save the setup. You have to push the set button 5 times to get to the screen where you can take a picture. Casio says to send it back for a charge of up to $100 since it is 13 months old. Any ideas? or buy a new (not Casio) camera.

The flash on my Kodak V570 does not appear to be working. There are 4 settings and I put the setting on the flash so that it fires every time you take a picture, regardless of the lighting conditions. Only thing is, the flash does not fire so I have to assume it is broken unless you have other ideas.

Every time I turn on my Canon A540 Powershot I get the black date/time screen. The date/time is all zero (the photo properties default to 1 Jan 1980) and I have to either enter the date/time or press Func/Set to clear the screen. Whichever option I take.. the same thing happens every time. Is there a way to make the date/time "stick"? I first noticed the problem when one set of batteries was low.. but new batteries didn't solve it. Any ideas? Camera doesn't have a lot of miles..

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take.

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?

Sometimes when I go to take the picture it works fine and other times, it won't take the picture but if I hold down the button it will eventually take after a few seconds.
