This camera was working fine, was turned off, and then a day later wouldn't work. The LCD screen on back works only if the Mode Switch is in the review mode (or DOWN), and does not light up under the picture taking mode (or UP) position. Also, while the switch is in the UP position, the ON/OFF power indicator button no longer stays lit. It does, however, stay lit in the Mode Switch in the DOWN position. First problem in three years. Nice little camera.

Bought in 2005 and have enjoyed its marvelous pictures. I put new batteries in, checked the ''all but empty card'' by seeing if it would download to computer; it did, no problem there. But, when I turn on the camera today the image in the camera's LCD shows what it sees with a quarter inch white bar at the top and flickers with a slow roll of the image viewed. The colors are also slightly off. I do not remember dropping the camera. I noticed that the screw plate on the bottom edge had one

Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen. I have replaced the batteries, tried changing settings and nothing works. I too can see the icons and view previously taken pictures but can take no new ones. I feel that paying $350 for a disposable camara is a bit much! I purchased it just a little over a year ago. I saw on the Canon website that they are fixing

After power on, green light comes on. On opening the touch pad viewer orange charge light comes on and whole camera shuts down leaving orange light lit. The only way to turn off the orange light is to remove battery. Since the battery is showing more than 90 mins remaining..I doubted it ay be battery but on changing battery with new one problem exists. I think it may be to do with the connection of touch pad viewer at hinge location. If i flip open fast the touch pad viewer stays on...then on

Sony DSC-F717 I have a Sony DSC-F717 camera which has worked well(except for the incredibly slow record time in TIFF) until now. The camera stays dark as if the shutter is stuck. I can turn the camera on, see the readings(battery, memory space etc.), view images previously recorded on the memory stick ? but not see anything through the lens, either on LCD or through the Finder. Is something locked up or stuck and how do I unlock it?

I have a Canon Powershot S30 with a bad LCD. Otherwise working. I also have one with a working LCD, but the lens will not extend. I'd like to make one out of two. Is there a manual with exploded views available so I can do it myself or is that unrealistic. I have several cameras, so I suspect that a professional repair would cost more than the camera is worth. Like most electronic relics, it seems to be cheaper to replace than repair.
