\015\012May I know the detail steps how to fix the switch assembly issue ?
Loose Screws in Fujifilm S304
\015\012
\015\012Because I am a qualified electronics technician, when the opportunity to purchase a second hand S304 which had "issues" presented itself I took the chance. One of the issues was the switch assembly. When I opened the camera, I too found a screw rattling around inside the case.
\015\012All the other internal screws were loose and I concluded that the assembly line clutch on the robot which tightens the screws was faulty on the day of manufacture and none of the internal screws were sufficiently tightened. I tightened all oif the internal screws, some of which were partly unscrewed, and I had a very nice camera.
\015\012Lately the beast has been prematurely switching off in camera mode which is becoming a problem but I believe this is a different issue.
As it is likely all the serial numbers of the S304's with this fault will be in a given range, so that you may identify if your camera was manufactured around the same time as mine (and therefore likely to have the same fault) the serial number of mine is 24L47749 and it was manufactured in Japan.

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared. Since then I have been taking photos w

I have a Canon EOS 40D When I switch it on all appears fine. When I take a photo the shutter remains open & all power is lost. I then need to remove & re-install the battery to recover power. I can view existing photos on the memory card but as soon as I switch to take a photo & click the shutter, the above happens again. Before I decide next steps I was hoping someone out there could help.

KODAK LS753: when the camera is powered up the screen comes on to set date and time. The selector five way switch can move between set and cancel. When the switch is pressed straight in nothing happens. I was thinking there may be a hard reset somewhere on the camera to clear this glitch. Cycling the power does not change anything.
