All other features seem to function.I think the camera was dropped. I would like information as to how to fix the camera myself,otherwise,is it an expensive repair? Many thanks,Peter

Answers :

How about brand new images just taken, are they also black? If so, this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.

Nikon Coolpix s220...Lens Error. Camera was dropped from like 5 inches. Immediately received the error message screen. The lens is stuck all the way out...I have tried to do some of the above and while twisting the lens slightly got it to take pictures again, I think it may have done more damage because its still makes a buzzing noise when I turn it on and there is black on a portion of the screen like the cover is partially stuck (inside the camera).

I lost my camera for a while and it seems like one of my kids must have hid it. It was relatively new when it was lost. However, my screen seems like it's not calibrated. When I touch the screen it's not responsive, however every once in a while i'll get lucky and it will work. I've managed to recalibrate it so I don't think that's the problem. Does this sound familiar?

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.

Try a hard reset first - Remove batteries and SD card, wait 5 minutes and reinsert everything and try. If the issue still recurrs, then best take it to the shop and check it out. You should still have the warranty on it. If they cannot fix it, ask th ... Digital Cameras

Eek, i dropped my camera more times than i can count, and hanging around a bunch of rowdy skaters seemed to really do it in. we've dropped it so hard the screen cracked, but it was still working fine. after awhile the crack started collecting dust [ew]. and now this last time, the focusy thing was open when i dropped it and it now refuses to work. i've lost the box and recipt and everything, so i doubt if anyone would replace it, even if i did do the whole 'pay more than your camera's actually w

My Olympus FE-370 has a broken screen, my fault. I bought a replacement off ebay for really cheap and it seems like it would work fine, but I'm having trouble taking the camera apart..A few of the screws, three around the screw-in tripod holder in the base of the camera, two on the right hand side close to the lens, and one right under the USB port, refuse to come out! If someone could help me with just that part, I would probably be able to figure out the rest! Thank you!

My camera won't turn on but it'll let me view all my pictures just fine. I think their might be a problem with the shutter because it sticks out a bit.

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

I have what seems like a very easy thing to fix, but the estimate I got for fixing it seems much too high ($175).

I bought this camera on ebay for my daughter- it seemed like a good idea at the time. I have the same model (bought new) & have no problems. The ebay camera went through batteries alarmingly fast and when I changed them they were hot. On our 6th day of ownership a message appeared on the screen that said "Lens error, restart camera" We could not restart the camera b/c it wouldn't do anything - it was dead and the lens won't retract. Does this sound fixable? Does anybody know what would cause t

I have a Canon MV600. when switched on to 'camera', all I get is a blank screen. Occasionally it will work normally. I suspect the iris is not opening and the iris motor sounds a bit rough. do you have any idea what the problem is likely to be and how much this repair is likely to cost. Incidentally, I also had this same problem with an older analogue Canon model so it would seem to be a common failing.
