For my Powershot sx110is there is a spot showing up on my pictures. I can see it in the viewfinder. I think it is some dust or dirt on an inner lens because I've cleaned the outer lens. The spot goes away when I engage the 10x-40x telephoto. Any suggestions how I can clean?

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem. When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help. Similar problem with SP-560UZ On power up lens clicks & sticks when zooms out. Then get "zoom error" & powers off. Tried new batteries, helping lens out. Leaving batteries out. Could not

My HP CA340 10.0 megapixels with 3x optical zoom lens only shows a white screen when I turn it on. I can still take pictures with great quality as I could before, I just can't see what I'm doing. It was working fine yesterday, when I turned it on, it seemed fine, then the screen randomly turned white. I would like to know if there is a way to fix this before I actually have to send it in for some one else to repair.

Broken zoom my daughter dropped my canon power shot s400 broke the zoom. it won't retract or come out. when i turned it on the screen shows E8 message then it shuts off after 2 or 3 seconds. Any way to fix this myself?? thanx.


The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

When the camera is turned on a FOCUS ERROR shows up on the screen and will not disappear. Also the zoom lens is stuck half way out. Is there an easy fix. Regards LORRENZO.

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?

I receive the E:61:00 error on screen, and the screen will not focus. I shook the camera around (per forums) and the screen focused for a minute, but would not zoom in out out. When I tried to zoom either way it would make a whirling sound. I opened my camera to have a tiny little piece, with "C 805" inscribed on it, to fall out.

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off. After cleaning the extended lens barrel each time it extended, I found it would open further each time. It nows extends fully, but still retracts immediately thereafter. At the time the screen shows the green Optio screen for a split second and then shows an out of focus shot of whatever the camera is pointing at, bef
