I need a new BATTERY DOOR for my Fuji Finepix S7000. I tried to order just the door from numerous sources & they could not get it (because Fuji insists on me sending my entire camera to them)! This repair would take 60 seconds IF I could just get a door....I finally sent the entire camera to Fuji & they charged me over $100. Obviously the door is flimsy, but I love the camera. Would like to order the door ONLY (and maybe even a spare for future similar problem) Thanx!

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

I received a Sanyo VPC-S880 digital camera for mothers day of 2008. It has a memory card, but I don't know how much.

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help

Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics.

Hello there. I have a brand new Kodak 'EasyShare M530' digital camera which is supposed to take 12 Megapixel photo's. I have only had the camera two weeks and the screen is now pinky/red and every photo it takes is out of focus with a red tint on it. Can you please help? I am not sure if it is inside the camera or perhaps the lense. I have cleaned the lense but the pink/redish tint still remains.

The camera was dropped in water for a few seconds. I managed to take the battery and memory card out after I retrieved it from the water. The camera was then dried and I was able to take a few pictures after the mishap. It's been a few weeks now and the camera does not work. I tried to charge the battery, thinking it was a bad battery, but the battery charger would continuously blink a red flash for hours! Can this camera be saved?

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse.

Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00 and not take a picture.
