Hi, I bought the Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD a week back. I have noticed a strange problem with the LCD screen or is it the sensor? In low light situations when you turn the camera on, the screen is not clear and there are disturbances in the form of blue dots across the LCD which appear like a screen refreshing phenomena. The same can be observed in the EVF also. Is there a problem with the sensor of the camera. The best way to notice this problem is by keeping your hand fully in front of the l

Blue Hue I have 2 A345 cameras. One is continually taking pictures with a very blue hue to them, useless as a photo, whilst the other camera with same settings takes great pictures. This happens whether indoors or outdoors in a good light. The camera has been back under warranty with no fault found. If I have pictures like this, how can it be no fault found. To demonstrate exactly the blue hue go to web page http://1sourpuss.blogspot.com/2007/05/hoses-trucks-muscles-oh-my.html It is exactly like

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.


Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

Kodak v610 camera (easy share) My 10 year son was using our v610 camera and the following error message E45 (please see user manual) appeared on the screen. We were unable to switch the camera off and therefore the shutter remained open. The shutter will only close if I remove and replace the battery and when I turn the camera back on the shutter remains open and the same error message returns. I have checked the manual and it doesn't mention this problem. thank you jane

When I push the power button on my camera, the blue button turns on and the green light above the T lights up for a second and then goes away. Nothing happens and I can't do anything with the camera. The lens is also stuck out and turning the camera on does not make it go back in.

Please can you advise me? The fault appeared without apparent reason, and is that when you take a photo, thin horizontal black lines appear, and when you transfer to the PC the lines are still there. The lines only appear after you have taken the picture - whilst you are viewing the subject through the viewfinder everything seems just fine. Many thanks for anything light you can throw on this, otherwise very happy with the camera. Tony

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open.

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?
