Having problems with your Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera ?
Shutter opens but screen is black
\015 I received my camera in the mail and it worked when before my step dad sent it. I charged the camera (with a convertor, I am in Europe) until the light was green. The camera light flashes green and the shutter goes out, but the screen remains black. Also, when I press off it takes awhile to close. Please help!\015

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.

Coolpix L18: The LCD screen is broken; just displays a large black "blob" on a white background. Would this prevent all other camera operations? When the camera is turned on, the green power light flashes, but nothing else seems to work. Camera will "beep" when shutter button is pressed, but lens never opens. Is this a LCD issue, or are there other problems as well?
