I have a Canon EOS 40D When I switch it on all appears fine. When I take a photo the shutter remains open & all power is lost. I then need to remove & re-install the battery to recover power. I can view existing photos on the memory card but as soon as I switch to take a photo & click the shutter, the above happens again. Before I decide next steps I was hoping someone out there could help.


See if the problem is related to the memory card. Start by ejecting the memory card and after saving to disk via card reader, format the card. If there is a problem writing to the card, it will probably show up during the format process. Or, inser ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

Power problem I was charging camera using 4.5 DC volt socket on Camera, next I switch on camera so Lens head came out, accidentally power pin came off from camera and lens will not go back.

I've just bought a new DSLR Olympus camera and fully charged the battery. The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on. If I remove the card and try to switch the camera on it still won't turn on, I have to remove the battery, put it back in then switch on the camera. Any ideas what's wrong?

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll through everything in the memory, but when I press the shutter to take a photo, the camera switches itself off. If I press the power by itself the green light comes on for a millisecond, then switches off. It has not been wet, dropped or otherwise. I had it on the shelf one day working fine, the ne

KODAK LS753: when the camera is powered up the screen comes on to set date and time. The selector five way switch can move between set and cancel. When the switch is pressed straight in nothing happens. I was thinking there may be a hard reset somewhere on the camera to clear this glitch. Cycling the power does not change anything.

The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

Switching off I have four older digital cameras (Olympus, HP, Oregon and Vivitar) and they're now all doing much the same thing. That is switching off as soon as they're switched on. The problem has come on progressively over a few days with all of them so it seems like a virus. I download images directly into a Windows XP system.

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.

Yes you're correct that it should hold large amount of photo on that large capacity memory card and it seems that some of the photo got corrupted or deleted, the best way to get those photos that you have on that memory card is to do a a data recover ... Digital Cameras

My new Samsung WB650 camera has just frozen, whilst I was reviewing the various functions. It won't respond to any of the controls, and won't even switch off. If I remove and replace the battery it has no effect. If I then switch it on the 'on' light comes on, but it still wont respond or switch off. Can you let me know what has happened and if there is way to restore normal function?

Power?? My camera turns on and the lens part extends out, but the screen is totally blank. When I switch it to view previous photos, it works fine..I just have to turn it "off" and the pictures come up..But if I switch it to take a picture, it goes completely dark again...it's almost three years old and has no damage done to it...
