Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

My Canon Powershot A95 is having the same problem as 88rickernst (nov. 23 post). It's not likely that water or some other liquid got inside, so what else could be the problem?

Hello, Just got back from Hawaii and took my Lumix Ts2 camera snorkeling every day. The first few days I had no problems, but the last half of my vacation, condensation covered the lens, and my pictures look like I'm shooting through a fog. The fog would dissippate after 45 minutes or so in the sun, but I missed many moments I would have liked to capture. The next day, I would go out and have the same problem. I worry that moisture is trapped inside the camera around the lens and no way to g

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though the sealed containment's, for the battery, memory card, and the usb transfer area were closed. The screen is now fuzzy, and it looks like a broken tv screen (the fuzzy part). It won't turn on, and right now it is making this noise every 21 seconds or so.

We went to a water theme park and my camera fell into the water (immersed completely). After that I tried to turn it on to check it works or not but it was showing some problems. Then I opened the battery and left it for a day like around 24 hours. Now when I try to turn on the camera. It says Lens Error. What could be done in this situation. Camera Model : Canon IXUS 80IS. Need some assistance in this regard.

My computer doesn't recognize my camera ViviCam 3785 I could not get my new Canon SX110 to be recognized by my pc. I was using a similar cord for another device.

Trouble Connecting I went to upload my pictures onto my MacBook and the camera won't connect. It had been working fine before and I hadn't changed anything. I tried taking out batteries and memory card, switching USB ports, and making sure the camera was set on USB and not the disk setting.

This is usually not a huge problem because i can pop the battery slot open and then take out the card and put it back in and it will usually fix the problem but i will be scuba diving in the bahamas in mid june and i have an underwater housing for the camera so as you might see popping the battery open at 40 feet below the surface could have some damaging effects to the camera.
