Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera ?

The image has become a bunch of parallel lines of various colors. I was caught in a hard rainstorm and the G-6 was exposed to that moisture for several minutes.

\015\012Sounds like the moisture got into the camera. Water (environmental) damage is not covered by your warranty.\015\012I would suggest that you remove the battery right away to prevent further damage. Leave the battery door open to allow air to circulate and dry out the camera. Purchase a can of compressed air and blow it into the seams in the camera in order to dry out the inside. You can get the compressed air at Walmart. Then allow the camera to sit overnight in a warm dry environment. With a fully charged battery try using the camera again. If you are still experiencing the parallel line problem it would have to be looked at at an authorized Canon repair shop.

I'm not clear about your last sentence. It sounds like you may have accidentally set the camera to use exposure compensation to over-expose the images. To reset this, see page 27 in your user manual. If you don't have the user manual you can ... Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS, the lens barrel is stuck in the furthest extended position. It was left alone and not operated for several months, though I have replaced the battery. The camera turns on for about 3 seconds at a time, I tried to turn it on several times with the lens barrel inching forward each time. It stopped going forward and has become stuck in what appears to be the furthest-extended position.There does not appear to be any particulates obstructing the lens barrel as far

Camera's about 2 years old. With a fully charged battery it will take about 8 to 10 photos and then the battery indicates total discharge. How ever, if the camera is turned off for several minutes and then back on it will again take several pictures and but then again shows that the battery is totally discharged. I have tried installing a new "out of the box" battery in the camera but I still get the same sequence of events. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated


This is going to be a tough one, but we may get lucky. There are a few things that can cause this situation, and it can get tricky since we never know how long replacement batteries have been on the shelf. When some rechargeable batteries totall ... Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera

After a few thousand really sharp pics, all of a sudden the shots are coming out slightly fuzzy, hardly noticeable at normal resolution, but especially evident when enlarged. Tried several different lenses with no difference. Doesn't seem to be related to settings, as we tried several with the same result. Same difference whether raw or jpeg.

Screen damage? no problems in two years until today after shooting several "best shot" in monochrome, then returning to regular shooting position in color. no drops ever and only gentle usage.

Overexposed pictures I have a Kodak EasyShare C743. It has always done an excellent job. In the last couple of days though, my pictures are all over exposed and the colors are off. I'm very disappointed as I was taking homecoming photos and portraits. Do you have any suggestions as to why this happened? It has not been dropped or exposed to water or anything like that. Thank you

I bought a used canon xs from craigslist. I think a hard lesson learned already. Anyway the camera appears to be in great condition. The problem is whenever I take a picture it does not come out right. The colors are way off. Some colors look fine, blue will come out beige, gray or green. This is with the flash indoors or outdoors with just normal light and the camera on full auto. I called canon and they said it sounds like the sensor is going bad. Just wondering if anyone has any advic


The experts at Canon are probably right. But, check the white balance and make sure it is on "auto WB". Go into the camera menu and find "reset" to get the camera back to factory default settings. If it still doesn't work, then you probably need a se ... Digital Cameras

My Canon A95 camera which, up to now, has given beautiful color rendition, suddenly shows distorted colors. Greens have become intense veridian and there is a purplish haze on some photos.

Battery life My fuji Finepix s3000 does not work for more than a few minutes running time on fresh batteries. I just bought new batteries/charger to confirm this. Is there some kind of short circuit within the camera? Is this a known problem? I've hardly used the camera (partly due to the fact that it always has dead batteries in it).

Orange LCD When I turn on the camera the LCD on the back of the camera is very orange to red in color, but I can see the display, menus, etc. After a few minutes everything seems fine. Is this a bad LCD or just a common issue with this model? If it is a problem will it get worse?
