My Olympus fe 3010 became flooded with salt water when the underwater housing failed. Olympus service won't even look at it. Is there a way to dismantle the camera and clean the contacts. At this point I have nothing to lose.

Cleaning the contacts is only one part of the problem. Salt water is corrosive and it got into the moving parts and also coated the lens elements. Your camera is toast and that's why Olympus won't bother with it.....they would have to replace virtual ... Olympus Digital Cameras

The symptoms you are describing are indicative of failure of the camera's CCD image sensor. In other words, the camera is defective. This is something you cannot fix yourself. As the camera is only 2 weeks old, you really don't need to be contacti ... Digital Cameras

My wife has a Canon 60D DSLR camera. When she looks through the view finder, it looks like the lens has a speck of dust on it as she can see it in the viewfinder. She has swapped lenses and the spec is still there. She used the auto clean function for the sensor, but the spec hasn't moved, This is almost a brand new camera. Should we clean the sensor by hand? If so, how do you do it?

Take a couple of pictures, over a dark background, if you can see the spec of dust on them, the problem might be in the mirror. Now, if the dust does not appear on the pictures, it's either on the viewfinder, or somewhere else out of the way of the s ... Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?

It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras

"Please describe your clean terminal xd card dry cloth problem": Well, that is exactly what my Olympus camera tells me to do whenever I switch it on! No amount of wiping makes any difference. I also went to a local photography shop where they tried my card in a reader (with no response whatsoever), and in one of their cameras, and again there was the request to clean it with a dry cloth. The shop said there is nothing that anyone can do. Please prove me wrong! By the way, the card is an Oly

Hi, I've a Sigma 28-105mm aspherical 3.5-5.6 lens. Auto focus does not engage. I can hear the motor trying, but the ring does not turn. When I switch to manual focus, I can turn the ring to focus manually, but I still hear the motor trying to use autofocus. Additionally, sometimes the shutter will not fire in manual focus while the motor is still searching. I've cleaned the contacts, but no joy. I suspect a faulty switch, but that doesn't completely explain the autofocus not engaging. I am

Well, I think you have at least one problem pinpointed, in that I suspect the focusing ring is jammed, and cannot rotate with the electromagnet signals. The other problem might be a faulty auto/manual switch. Of course, check for oxidation and e ... Digital Cameras

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

I receive the same "errr" message. The photo shop said it was a bad contact, they cleaned them with an eraser and made sure there was good contact. Problem was slightly better, but still exists. I have to remove the battery to clear the problem, turning it off and back on does no good. You can actually feel the lense move ever so slightly. Camera has gone back to Nikon for a repair. Very disappointed at this point with this. Camera store acknowledged that they have seen many of these.
