Hello, I have been given a very old model of this camera for use in a workshop with street children. The screen is out of focus and all the pictures come out blurry. When I look at the screen without any pictures on it looks like grainy like it is a really bad resolution. Is the camera just too old? It also gives off smoke when the flash goes off! If possible could you get back to me asap. Many thanks, Kate

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx

Lens broken my camera fell off a table and now the lens is screwed up. when i turn it on it is just a black screen. but if i press firmly on the right side of the lens, the picture blurs, fuzzes, and then comes into focus, once i take my finger off it goes black. so i can take pictures, but only with my finger on the lens. it seems like this is fixable. what can i do?
Not easily fixed. Sounds like you stripped the feeds for the lense, and it messed up the contacts. Try sending it to Kodak for repair, or taking it to a camera repair place. These devices are sensitive electronics, so you won't be able to fix it at h ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again. Then the screen is blank, shows no picture until i push the play button, or until I change what picture setting it is on. Once the screen shows picture it will not focus anything. Any help here?

Focusing problems Hello, I have been trying to take close-up pictures (between 4-12 inches away from subject) but when I press the shutter button halfway, on the screen I see the image come into focus, come out of focus, come into focus,.. on and on for several moments until it settles on the out of focus image. I've tried setting the camera to the macro and super macro settings, and that doesn't help at all. I know it can focus, because I see it on the screen but for some reason it chooses the

Focus problems Hi, my camera is not focusing clearly. We just used it recently and can look at clear pictures on the display screen but now when we go to actually take a picture it's blury (on the display screen and if a picture is taken). I also notice that all these different setting menu's come up on the display screen when we are in take picture mode. I took it in today and they said the lens could have been bumped or that their is something wrong with the focusing inside. So they would hav

LCD White-out I have had this Fuji FinePix A350 since Christmas 2006. This August while on vacation and taking quite a few pictures with a new 1GB XD card, the LCD screen would come on with a blank white screen as the camera was turned on. I continued to take photos using the optical viewfinder to frame my pictures, hoping that it was still working even if I couldn't view them. Fortunately, all the photos did come out fine even though some were totally out of focus (focusing was sometimes a prob

Focus The camera has very good focus on the first picture. However, second and following pictures are out of focus. If I turn the camera off and then back on, the focus is fine. Could this be from dropping the camera? Or is it likely just dirty? Thanks.

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).
Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down.

Nikkor lense I have a AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor ED 18-70mm lense. Up to now it has been good for me. Now I have a problem. When I take indoor shots the lense will not focus in it spins like it is trying to focus but thats all it does is spin back and forth. Sometimes it will take (allow) a picture and the picture is very blurry. I have no idea how this happened.

No focus It does not get focused on object. Looks like there is something on lenses inside the camera because when I do wide zoom directed on white paper there are few gray dots visible on the picture. I tried to open it but did not get to the lenses. Is it posible to open it with some instruction from you. Minolta does not support digital cameras anymore and there is not local repair stores. I like it but can not use. Thank you in advance
