I have GE C1130 and it has a tendency of losing pictures . When you go on the viewing part it shows empty. Also shows empty when you hook it to a computer. I haven't deleted anything. Last time the pics re-appeared after few days. This time they are again gone but one old one that has been deleted before re-appeared.

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out. I am not sure now if the lens went back in. I pushed the on button again and the lens moved out; the display lit up with the message

I removed battery pack from the camera. About two months later, I put it back, and when I turned on the camera, the LCD was completely blurred, with purple vertical streaks throughout the picture.

I have spots on my pics. My camera is still new. I've been extremely careful to not get anything on the lens. Don't see anything visible on the lens, and have also tried cleaning it (very carefully with special lens cleaner). Still, there are spots -- the same place on every pic. Is there anything that I can do? It it possible it's something internal?


Ok those "Spots" are dead "Pixels" in the CCD Element that take or sees the image. What has happened is that certain "Elements" in the CCD have gone faulty, this means that they do NOT react at all, to the light, hence a "Spot" is displayed. If you ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15 Digital Camera
