Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera ?

Battery connectivity When I turn on my camera with a fully charged battery, it frequently gives me a black screen and tells me to change the battery pack. If I take the battery out and blow humid breath on it and put it back in, it will work. It does this on different batteries. Can you offer a fix?

I have the Nikon Coolpix L20. Every time I delete a picture from reviewing it it freezes on the screen "please wait". Ive waited as long as 5 minutes before. I have to constantly take out my batteries and put them back in in order to get the camera working again. Even if I try and delete a picture it does the same thing over and over. I put in new batteries so I know its not that. How do i fix this?

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it

My olympus stylus tough 6000 keeps reverting to internal memory even when it has a memory card inside it. This is usually not a huge problem because i can pop the battery slot open and then take out the card and put it back in and it will usually fix the problem but i will be scuba diving in the bahamas in mid june and i have an underwater housing for the camera so as you might see popping the battery open at 40 feet below the surface could have some damaging effects to the camera.

Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
