The flash getting stuch is a common problem with the Canon Rebel ( or Kiss) series. Set the camera in Auto mode in a dim place. Hold the flash unit gently from both sides and try to help it open while pressing the photo button. Do not use force if this does not work the first time - try it again.

Once open, clean the sides of the flash unit in case some dust is causing this problem.

Error E:62:10 My Sony Cybershot DSC-T9 has suddenly flashing E:62:10 all the time. The camera is also taking longer than usual to get to the taking pictures stage eg, when you flick open the lense, it takes around 10 seconds for anything to show.  Does this have to do with the error that is flashing up - I can't get rid of it.

This seems to be a design flaw on the T series. Literally thousands of T series owners have had this problem at some time or the other on their "well-used" camera. This sounds harsh, and maybe even dangerous, but it's not : use a rubber mallet, ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera

I have a Polaroid Impulse QPS and it won't turn on anymore. Usually to take photos I open the flash and a little red light comes on next to the button that you press to take a picture. In a couple seconds it turns to green and I can take the picture, but all of a sudden the light stopped going on at all. so when I press the button, nothing happens. I was thinking maybe it's a battery problem, but I can't figure out where to put batteris in the camera! I got it used, so I've never done it be

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!

Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Very slow After I take a picture it takes a very long time until I can take another one. The viewfinder lamp swithces slowly from green to orange and the camera is not responding to anything until the lamp stays green. It takes even longer if i used the flash. Anyway I can fix it? I opened the camera and I noticed there is a battery (like a watch battery). Can that be replaced? Anybody knows anything about this battery? Thank you in advance for any feedback.

The screen on my M380 does not show the image. The camera is fully charged and when I press the "on" button, the lens extends and opens. The screen is illuminated, but there is no image of what the picture will be. I can go ahead and take a picture -- it makes the appropriate sounds as it normally would and the flash goes off if needed. In fact, when I then plug into the computer, I can see that a picture was taken. However you cannot focus the shot because you cannot see the image on the s
