Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob

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.

Oh no maybe you used different adaptor some adaptor have reverse polarity. check the adaptor before plugging it..if you using variable voltage set to 3v then adjust also the polarity. the polarity should match the polarity of your camera. ... Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera

The odd thing is that it works in VCR mode but not as a camera, I forgot to turn it off today and then transported it, in it's safe bag, when I took it out (it was outside in this temperature) it wasn't working any longer. I thought it was the battery, but I recharged the batttery at home and it's still not working. What could it be?

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

I live in Sydney, Australia. I have two S-AV 2050 projectors. Previously working OK. Each has 2 lamps (24V), rotary voltage selector in base for 250, 110, 130, 220V. Now when I switch on, fan works OK, but no lights come on. All 4 lamps are OK (very low resistance). Looked for wiring diagrams (needs model), but could not find model number. Rating plate gives serial no and says (in part): Projector Type J 920752. The other says: Projector 798702. Can you say why it's not working?

I have a 256MB compactflash memory card for the coolpix 4300 that was bought over 7 years ago. I went to Radio Shack and Walmart looking for another. The salesperson told me that the SandDisk 8GB compactflash memory card would work. I tried it and it doesn't. The screen on the camera reads do you want to format the card. I selected yes, but it doesn't work. Is there anyway I could make the card work. It's the same size and look as the 256MB card.
