Having problems with your Canon Powershot SX110 IS Digital Camera 9.0MP ?

Took a shot with flash, the camera just died, no sign of life, lens stuck open. Changed batteries, with and without card, nothing makes a difference, not a sign of life.

Answers :

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.The Fault seems to be failure of the control unit as the flash worked maybe with a coincidence.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the Canon service as you do not have to run around for spares.
A total failure of the control board might need the support from the dealer for the required spare and so instead of tampering it will be worth a try.

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.

I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light turns green, but then immediately flashes red several times and shuts off. I've tried different batteries, with and without several SD cards, and nothing works... How do I fix it?

I haven't used my Nikon Coolpix E5700 for several years now. I have moved several houses, so something may have caused my camera to stop working. However, I've attempted to turn it on several times and all the monitor shows is a "Lens Error" sign. I've taken out the battery, recharged it, and replaced it yet it still doesn't make a difference. Is there any way I can fix it without bringing it to a shop?

"Please describe your clean terminal xd card dry cloth problem": Well, that is exactly what my Olympus camera tells me to do whenever I switch it on! No amount of wiping makes any difference.
