I have the SX-10. The view finder, before grabbing scene has a spider-web pattern, which does not show up in shots. This problems is minor compared to the zoom control sticking. I have disassembled the body to see if there is dirt or other visible reason, but see nothing. I have four other cameras, and am retiring this one, because it takes too much fiddling. If I could get it working well, I could give it away. Any non-pro solution?

My HP CA340 10.0 megapixels with 3x optical zoom lens only shows a white screen when I turn it on. I can still take pictures with great quality as I could before, I just can't see what I'm doing.

I can't find object in dark. Though the camera should identify (may be red ray focus) the object to take snap. In manually I set up all the possible way but in vain. Could you pls. give me a set up solution as I can overcome the trouble?

Yes, the camera does attempt to illuminate the area to allow autofocus, but the darker it is, the harder it is for autofocus to work. This is a problem even with high-end SLRs.\015\012\015\012Usually the center focus point is the strongest and ... Digital Cameras

Lens stuck My camera won't register to open the lens. I don't know how it was before, but the screen is completely black and it won't take pictures.
