Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

I fall into a lake with my camera :( .

\015 Off course now is not working, do i have any hope?\015

Answers :

Had a simular problem with one that was washed in the washer machine. Take the battery out and allow the camera to dry completely. When dried replace the battery and plug the camera into the USB port on the camera and PC and see if you get power. If yes, then see if it will charge from the pc if not replace the battery.

We took a few pictures the night before we went to a museum. That night we put the battery for the camera in a charger that plugs into an outlet. This batery was taken out of the camera. The next morning, I was getting out of the car and the camera, in its protective bag, and it is much larger than the camera, fell. It was about, tops, 3 feet in the air. Cushening the fall, it hit my ankle. Anyway, the camera never turned on again. The camera actually makes a noise all the time like you a

Cushioned or not, your camera likely landed on the end of its lens, dislodging it from the track it rides on to zoom, or jamming it on the track so that it cannot move, and the camera powers itself off to prevent further damage when it senses the len ... Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!

A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

I receive the E:61:00 error on screen, and the screen will not focus. I shook the camera around (per forums) and the screen focused for a minute, but would not zoom in out out. When I tried to zoom either way it would make a whirling sound. I opened my camera to have a tiny little piece, with "C 805" inscribed on it, to fall out. I do not know where this belongs, and still can not get my camera to focus. Help!

I have 17 grand children and one great grandchild so about a year ago I bought a VuPoint DV-M5056-VP and have yet a picture. First was a day when it went blank. Took it to three Wal-Mart stores including the one I bought it from. No one could tell me what went wrong, Suggested I throw it away and get another type of camera. One day it worked. Now my problem is those metal pieces that hold the batteries are falling out. I lost one so the camera is again not useful. I need an answer sent to

I just purchased a Digital Concepts 7.1 MegaPixel Camera w/a 2.4" Preview Screen. It came with a software installation disk for PhoTags Express. The CD says it fits any standard PC CD Rom Drive, but the CD will not fit right in the drive & keeps falling out. (It's too small for the drive) Is there somewhere I can download it for free so I don't have to return the whole camera, etc.

Zoom Error While taking a picture of my daughter at Disneyland, I accidently dropped my camera, while in picture mode. It must have been about a 3 foot fall. It landed on the extended lense causing it to disalign itself. I attempted to push lens back into it's proper alignment. Now that I turn on the camera, I automatically get a "Zoom Error" fault in the LCD screen. Is it possible for me to fix it or what do you suggest? Thank you for your time and efforts.....
