Operation panel buttons not responding

\015 Roughly a month ago, the video function on my camera stopped working. \015\012Then two days ago, all of the buttons on the "operation panel" stopped\015\012responding to touch (and the beeping sound is gone). If I want to\015\012change the flash setting, I can't. If I want to change to the close-up\015\012setting, I can't. Nothing responds! I can still take photos,\015\012however. Any ideas?\015

I have a Sanyo VPC C6EX 6megapixel camcorder which, when switched on, immediately takes a photo in 'camera' mode without any prompting. After that, it will not take a photograph in normal operation. I have moved the switch between REC and PLAY and tried both camera and video modes, but neither will respond when buttons pressed. Switch the camera off, and then back on again, and it still takes a picture automatically without warning....! Indeed, the camera seems to be 'confused'?...even in ME

I've had my Panasonic Lumix DMC LX3 for about just 3 months. It has worked like a charm until today, when suddenly several things have gone whack, as if the calibration died. I just uploaded pix to my computer, but I can't erase them from the camera. The buttons do not respond. When I turn the camera on, it goes immediately to the "Burst Shooting" window, and doesn't respond to the select buttons. It just blinks and beeps on the "Normal" selection. When I try snapping a picture, nothing happens.

My camera problems have been resolved, although I can't attest to how or why. After about six hours, as I prepared to pack off the little guy to the manufacturer, everything had gone back to normal. I'm left only to speculate that maybe the camera ad ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 Digital Camera

Brand new (one hour old) Canon Powershot A490 looks like it has a software bug. All the buttons used to work but now no button responds except fpr the left button when one of the two bottom buttons (camera and menu) is pressed. Pressing one of the latter then pressing the left button constantly cycles through the menus.

Obviously, you have a defective camera. Don't try to fix it or you may void the warranty....send it back. ... Canon PowerShot A490 Digital Camera

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

None of the buttons on my camera are responding aside from the shutter button and the share button. I cannot review or delete images or even zoom in and out. The only way to review images is by using the "share" button.

Shutter Problem I have an Olympus C-750 that I was in love with until 5 days before my vacation when the shutter button decided to stop working. Zoom in and out still works, but the shutter will not respond to the button or the remote. The other strange symptom is when I turn the camera on, it snaps a picture (and then won't take anymore). Thought I might have managed to put it in a certain mode or hit some magic series of buttons to put it in this strange mode, but I can't undo it. Tried changi

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.

I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden.
