I dropped my Lumix TZ4 camera in the snow very briefly. I picked it up and wiped it off, but it shut down with the lens still open. Although the battery is fully charged, the on/off switch does not work and the lens remains open. There is no screen display and no response at all from the camera. Is there a reset I can do?

I haven't used my Olympus FE-20 camera for about half a year, and I just brought it out to take pictures of the snow. Everything was great, but then I had to search for the cord to upload it. I found one that fit perfectly and connected it to a USB port, but none of my three computers notify me of it connecting, nor does it appear in the "my computer" screen. The sd card that came with it doesn't fit in any of the sd slots on the computers, so I'm stuck. I just downloaded the cd that came with i

Dark Pictures Hi. 2-3 years ago my Dad bought a Kodak EasyShare DX6490 and it's worked just fine in the past. Now, unless you have full sunlight and a very bright day, it takes dark pictures.

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen. Is the screen repairable or is it best to purchase a new digital camera?
