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

Nikon D70 I have a Nikon D70, been using it for 3 years now without a problem up until 2 months ago when I tried to take a picture the screen read "CHG" or "Charge." I assumed it meant the battery. I charged the battery for a full day thinking this would work and of course it didn't. I did the same thing for the next three days with no luck. I eventually bought a new battery and still the word "CHG" or "Charge" shows up on the screen and doesn't allow me to take any pictures. Would you happen to

I have had a Nikon CoolPix L110 for 10 months. I've never encountered a problem transferring pictures from my camera to my computer during this time...until now. When I connect my camera using the USB cable, Nikon Transfer opens as usual, but nothing happens after that. The source is not showing the camera. The camera works fine. I can view and take pictures. However, the difference this time is that my camera is full. Could that have something to do with it? I would like to be able to

Camera showing battery half full or empty despite having new batteries [ have tried several different batteries ,all new, just to be sure] ]. Even if occasionally it does show a full battery , it will only take one or two pics before showing empty again. Usually if you take them out and replace them it shows full but only for a few mins. Any ideas ?

Hello, I'm working in Saudi Arabia. My Elinchrom 3000 micro AS had a blast and few components have been damaged. Service from Elinchrom agent is almost inexistant. After a six month wait, they didn't repair-it then sent me a $2000 quote to do the work. I withdrew my unit and gave-it to a technician working for Canon's agent who's really good in flash repair. Except, he doest know how to get the parts other than the local agent - which will probably overcharge and take another six months to d

My camera is less than a year old but has recently been giving problems with the battery connection - I believe. The battery shows full and the camera works perfectly, then with no indication why the camera will not turn on. When left and then turned on later it sometimes works again, without the battery being charged in the meantime and with it again showing full. As I am going on holiday in 2 weeks I have not time to send it back to cannon under guarantee. Can you suggest anything I can check?

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.

My D70 was working normally when I last used it. I left it safely stored at my vacation home for three months, and when I tried to use it today it appeared to take pictures, all functions seemed to be working, but reviewing the pictures I see only a black monitor. It shows a file number, the info shows exposure details but there is no image. I did a re-set to factory spec, put in a fresh battery, tried several memory cards, all with no success.
