I have a Optio A20 ( this is a replacement, as the first camera was returned with the same problem) It appears that the viewing screen is cracked. Not the outer one but inside. The camera has never been knocked/ banged / or dropped !! Suggested by Jessops knowall manager.( Always kept in leather case. Is this a fault with the A20 ?? Is it repairable ?? At what cost ?? I am at a wedding in 3 weeks. Thank You, Phil.


Hello sir ... Digital Cameras

I've had the 5700 since 2003, which at the the time I paid $1200 for it. E-Bay is now selling for a bid of $85. At any rate, I cannot manipulate the menu to make any settings. I have a flashing update icon for date & time, but cannot set. Also, the zoom control is unresponsive. I have no idea where to get an estimate for a repair & let's face it, the repair would probably cost more then what I can purcahse a new digital SLR camera for with more features than what I paid for the 5700. Any correct

Freeze Up I just got my first digital camera, chock full of buttons, dials, wheels and screens. ;-) Anyway after a few hours of playing with it - it locked up...no buttons worked.(even the power button) I had to finally remove the battery from the live camera to reset it. Since then it has happened almost half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Has anyone seen this phenomenon ? Is there cure or is it necessary to send it for warranty repair.(return to store)


Sorry this post is probably way too late for fishi, but in case anyone else needs an answer;\015\012\015\012Yes. Return it to store.

I have a canon sx100is digital camera i purchased a week and a half ago. it was working fine until last night when all of the sudden the lcd went black. it still works, the camera just will not take new pictures. i can still view the pictures and videos before that point, but can't record anything new. should i just return the camera or is there hope that maybe i messed with a setting that screwed up the camera?

FinePix A405 This is a good little camera and I'm so dissappointed that this has happened. I have recently returned from a family holiday in France where I last used my camera.

CCD Problem My HP Photosmart 945 camera's CCD broke down, and I'm told that there's no way to repair it, because HP does not sell the part. What could I do?. Is it possible to install another make's CCD or any solution that might help. Please, do not refer me to HP customer support service, because it sucks! They only offer a "refurbished camera" and only God knows what that could be!. Thanks in advance. P.S.: I know the camera is old (even though to me three years is not that much), but it work

My IXUS 990 camera has fallen form a 1 ft hight and now lense is not going inside. I am surprised that this is treated by authorised canon repair agency as a broken lense reason.

Hello, I own a Fugi Finepix F100 camera. Last week my dog was pulling on his leash trying to get to a gaggle of ducks and caused me to drop my camera down into snow. I tried to dry it off and in doing so might have damaged the retractable lens cover. Now it is not reliable in opening all the way, I usually need to help slide it back so that the lens is fully exposed. I really don't want to have an expensive repair unless necessary...what do you advise? Thank you! Linda

My Olympus u 750's telescopic zoom is jammed in the extended position. The cause seems to be the last segment of the zoom, containing the lens, which is not properly aligned with the other retractable zoom segments. I don't remember knocking the camera - not sure how this happened. Is this a common problem that can be fixed by gently forcing the crooked segment back into it proper place? Or if it has to be sent for repair, is it worth the trouble and cost?

My camera is a year and a couple weeks old so Im not even sure if I have warenty. Does any know how much something like this will cost? and how long it takes to get repaired?


It sounds like your flash capacitor isn't fully charged up and your taking a photo and there isn't enough power charged up, so your photos turn out too dark. Take a photo, wait for a minute or til you see the flash icon inside the viewfinder lit up a ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )


Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera
