Battery problem New batteries don't last as long as when the camera was new. The LCD screen takes too long to come to life and the auto focus isn't as sharp as it used to be. Any suggestions on battery type? Using energizer rechargeable? Thanks

No power The camera will not turn on. We have replaced the AA batteries, still no power. This is my son's camera and while out of town he used it quite a bit. He said the camera was warm while using the video option. He quit using it, but was unable to get it to turn on. Is there something else we can try?

LCD Screen Okay, Like an idiot, I turned off my LCD screen, long ago, so that I could use the viewfinder since both cannot be used at once. I would simply like to know HOW TO TURN THE LCD SCREEN BACK ON!!! it has driven me crazy, the book doesn't help, I have gone through resetting to default settings and nothing. I think I have really changed something in the setup and I hope I can reverse it. Anyone with a solution??? Please??? Driven Crazy by cam Rebecca

Your solution? I am using brand new Energizer Industrial alkaline batteries. Should I be using something else? They seem to work fine in my wife's 675(?). Thanks

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again. [This problem happens indoor
The focus motor is either stuck or broken, i would check this first ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera
I have had a nikon D60 for the last 3 years.I normally use the auto setting and for the first 2 years it took beautiful photos almost every time. in the last year or so when i try to take a photo it often displays iso auto r 09 in the bottom right hand corner and won't take the photo and this doesn't appear to depend on lighting. Is there something i can do differently? Should i take the camera for a service? Thanks

All bateries are loaded but camera does not give any activity reaction by activating the camera. Last time I used it was about a month ago. I only reloaded the bateries and put them in, but camera does not do anything when I want to use it, activate it. I bought 4 new penlite bateries but also nothing, not even a little bit of a sound or what else. It is not easy to explain in english in dutch it is much easier. It concerns a fuji finepix S5600

Blankness When I switch it on, my screen goes grey-white for a few seconds. Then, It shows my last picture taken but it's very fuzzy and faded. Then the picture changes into complete greyness. THEN, it'll jump from the grey-whitness, to that faded picture. Damn. Would there be any why I could just replace a part in it? Like the hard drive or something? Definitely sounds like something is really fucked in my cam. Sniff. I loved it and hate having to buy another new one as I'm accustomed to using

I have a Fujifim finepix f47(fd) The camera was working fine until last week, basically I can turn the camera on fine and use all the menus etc. My problem is after I take a photo the camera crashes/freezes and thats it you cant do anything else unless you take the battery out however im back at square one again.

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )

PHILIPS DTR4610/28 Watching terrestrial TV in Italy which has gone all digital needing decoder, I usually when switching off go through a ritual of pressing first the standby switch on the PHILIPS DTR4610/28 then pressing the power (off) button of the TV (R2 20LZ50) remote (which I use only for this and a bit for additional volume control). To switch on I go through the reverse routine. Maybe I did something in the wrong order last night, plus I pulled out aerial and mains of device and TV.

My camera will not download to my computer. When I connect, the green indicator light is on but nothing will function. On my monitor it states that a high speed port is needed. However, I have used the same port in the past with no problem. Since my last download I installed a CD burner. Could this have something to do with my current problem? Thank You...
