Zoom Error Hi all, New to site and hope you can help me! I have a Fuji S3000 that has worked very well for last couple of years and all of sudden has packed up, coming up with "zoom error" when you turn it on. I have done the obvious (change the batteries) but to no avail. Any ideas.

We have a canon powershot A410 digital camera with 3.2 mega pixels (purchased brand new in fall 2007) and recently, whenever we take pictures outside, they come out completely white (overexposed).

I own a D90 and of late have had problem getting the shutter to actually fire and take a photo at times. It will work sometimes and not at others. I have tried changing the memory card - putting it on manual etc but still won't work. The battery is fully charged. It occasionally comes up with an r05 and r21 code in the R lower box and a flashing F at the top R when this seems to happen. I haven't played with the settings all that much - just since this has begun happening. Can you make any sugge

Black-out I've had my camera for about six months now, since February. It's worked fine, and I never had a problem, until about two weeks ago. Now, when I turn it on, all I see is black. If shaken it shows an image for about two seconds, before it goes black again. Taking pictures doesn't do anything, it's still black. Sometimes I can get an image, but it's grainy and only shows up as blue with light on the main object. It's worked fine up until now. I've changed the batteries a few times, but i
