Having problems with your Casio EX-V8 Digital Camera ?

We dropped the camera & it will not work----is it worth repairing

Answers :

If its purely water damage, you might be able to extract the water and get it working again. It needs to get all of the water out of it, you can put it into a ziploc bag with either a bunch of silica gel packets (like you get in food or shoes) or some uncooked rice and leave it for a few days. Each one of these should help to remove and moisture in the camera.\015\012
\015\012If that doesn't work, its probably not worth getting it repaired. There is the initial damage that has occurred (battery damage) as well as moisture between lenses and potential salt/contaminates left behind on the circuit board that can cause corrosion. If drying it out doesn't work, you'd probably be better off with a new one

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.

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!

Time for some "tough love"...suggest you buy one of the new Pentax point-and-shoots that are especially made for people who continually drop their cameras. This one can be dropped from 3 feet and still work. Leave the good DSLRs to the rest of us. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Dropped camera The camera, approximately 3 years old, was dropped from a sitting position. The zoom lense is extended and will not close. When the on/off button is pressed the small green light to the right on top of the view screen flashes and that is all. I wonder, is it worth trying to get it repaired?

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another

I have two Ricoh cameras 1. XR1 35mm SLR - a. camera back lets light in & I beleive requires a new soft seal. b. camera flash synchronisation appears defective. 2. 500RF Compact - camera backs lets light in & as above I believe requires a new soft seal. Can you please advise if repair work for each camera possible & typically what cost so that I might evaluate if it is worth pursuing. Thanks Rgs Peter Drury

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...

So, I've had an Olympus fe-230 for almost two years now. This camera was sent in for repair under warranty about four months after purchase (August '07), because I got caught in a rain storm with it and it fizzled. Olympus fixed it up for me, and I haven't had problems since then. It is possible I may have dropped the camera at some point since then, but I really don't remember doing so. Anyway, the problem: the camera was working just fine this Wednesday night, I took pictures, it was running o

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?

As I pull out the LCD screen on my A95 the picture will come on at about 100 degree angle to the camera body. If I continue to move the screen to a use able position then the screen goes black again.

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old.
