Canon camera sc980- screen won't work, cannot format card. So effectively camera in NOT working- less than 3 months old now. Just returned from a 6 week trip to Asia & the camera, bought new about 3 weeks before our trip, did not work as there the screen didn't work. sent canon an email- told them we were in Asia on the trip of a lifetime & they said "send it on for repairs" FROM ASIA- get real- they ruined my trip!!! Advice on how to deal with them!! I want at least some compensation for not h

Well, I'm not sure what you expected them to do...send someone to Asia to fix your camera? They responded the only way they could. They didn't ruin your trip...you could have bought a cheap throwaway digital camera and enjoyed the trip. Now you need ... Canon PowerShot SD980 IS / Digital IXUS 200 IS Digital Camera

No pictures I have a Moultrie DGS-200 camera (about two years now) and have used it only twice. The first time I got no pictures although it said there were 5. The second time was last weekend where it said 12 pictures yet there were none. When I first set it up at home it would trip from 20-25 feet away. Now I can wave my hand in front of it and it may or may not trip. What am I doing wrong.

Are you using a SD card or using the internal memory? The trigger mechanism on these cameras are not the best. They are slow and sometimes wouldn't go off with an elaphant standing in front of it and other times it trips from the wind, shadow, or a ... Moultrie MFH-DGS-200 Digital Camera

My camera (Pentax Optio E90) is less than two months old and the flash has suddenly stoppped working even when i choose the option which uses flash no matter what.. What has happened to it?

Evil flash there is either something wrong with my flash or the light meter, but 99% of the time when i go to take a picture, the flash goes off. hood up or down, it doesn't matter. it seems that the only time the flash doesn't go off is in extremely bright light, i called customer support and was basically told to send it away for a million years to have it repaired, but is there possibly a more simple solution?

It appears that there is something wrong with the sensor that senses when the pop-up flash is up or down. Try cleaning the whole area with compressed air, especially the little gaps in the mechanism. The part that is defective costs next to nothing, ... Fuji FinePix S9000 Zoom Digital Camera

The buttons on my 4 month old Nikon S8000 don't work. I can take a photo but can't zoom in, I can't view the photos, can't record a video, can't turn on the flash (or any of the other setting on the rotating wheel), can't go to menu, scene selector or delete a photo (which doesn't matter as I can't view the photos anyway!). The shop I bought it from is 130 miles away as I've moved away and no other camera shops are near here, so if possible I'd like to solve this without having it sent away! Tha

I purchased this camera about a month ago to prepare for my trip to Egypt. The pictures come out nice, but when I recorded a video, I can hear a sound like someone is walking on a squeky floor. Also, if I use the zoom while using video, I sound is also heard a lot louder. How can I record video shots without having the background noise? Hurry! I will be leaving soon.

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

If its only been 9 months since you bought it shouldn't it be covered for repair? espically if its a manufactures fault,which it sounds like. ... Kodak EasyShare M863 Digital Camera

Hi, I've had my Nikon D40x now for about two months, brand new etc. I was sat by the pool today and someone dived in, sending a few splashes onto me and the camera, hardly enough to damage it at all, and i dried it straight away. But still, i tried to turn the camera on and it would not, no sign of life or anything. So i put it into the hot water cupboard overnight, and still nothing?? Could anyone suggest anything, please?? :S Thanks, Laurie.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 We have a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 camera that stopped working after 6 months. We sent it back to Panasonic for repair under warrany and they said it had internal "corrosion". It was never wet. They sent it back unrepaired. I took the back cover off and saw no visible corrosion. Does anyone have any ideas? Can I send it to you for repair?

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)
