Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera ?

Camera worked great since Dec. 2005. When camera was brought back from the beach, since then photos are not in focus. Looking through the viewfinder is not in focus either. I loaned it to my granddaughter. Was assured camera did not get wet. Have blown compressed air in all crevices on the outside to remove possible sand. Camera had stopped with zoom lens out, not retracted. I replaced battery pack. Everything else seems fine with the new battery pack, but the focus.

Dear Sir/Madam, My daughter did get an Olypmus FE-340 digital camera last year but has since a few weeks problems with this camera. On switching on the camera the lens keeps opening and closing. When the lens stops there is no automatic focusing and only by taken out the battery the lens will close itself. Is it possible for you to advise me which action to take?

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on. But not much at all. But my camera has completely stopped working and its stuck with the zoom out and everything. But it might also be a battery problem since I dont have my battery charger and dont know if the camera died but I dont think it would die with the lens still exposed. I have a Sone DSC-W50.

Dropped camera I've got a whole set of issues with my Finepix camera. I accidentally dropped it and since then my camera has exhibited some strange problems. Sometimes when trying to zoom in, the power will instantly die. It drains batteries too quickly and will not focus correctly when taking indoor shots under incandescent lighting.

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. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

The battery is fully charged. When I turn my camera on, it zooms out, then zooms in, then zooms out, then zooms in, etc. After doing this for about a minute, it finally stops and the screen reads ''Turn camera off and on again.'' But that doesn't do anything. The same thing happens the next time. Is there a way to just reset the camera or do something else to fix it? It is a SonyDSC 150

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?

Battery drainage I have had my olympus sp-550 uz for approx 18 months, and was getting around 175 shots even when using zoom a lot. I am now getting only 20 - 30 shots using new batteries and also getting total drainage over night at times when my camera is turned off. I have been using the same make and type of batteries since I bought the camera.


20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batter ... Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera

Zoom Error Hi all, New to site and hope you can help me! I have a Fuji S3000 that has worked very well for last couple of years and all of sudden has packed up, coming up with "zoom error" when you turn it on.

I have recently been to the North Pole with this camera and it worked perfectly well at -40 degrees (after warming the batteries!) and has only worked for a day since returning!

My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.
