My Canon 5D mkI turns on ok, will focus, displays top and back, but it will not take a shot. I have two batteries, both which I have charged to full and tried (display shows full charge). I have also tried two seperate CF cards. I have tried cleaning all contacts. Still it won't take a photo. The shutter will work when I use the "clean sensor" function though. Also, I have reset all settings on the camera. Anyone know why the camera isn't firing off a shot?

The camera that I have is an red HP A730 with 7 megapixels. I've had it for about 3 years and it's always worked just fine. But, recently I lost my memory card. My camera still worked with out it. Anyway, the other day I tried to turn my camera on and it didn't work for some reason. I thought it was the batteries, so I changed them, but the light indicating that it's on flashed for a second and then turned off. Now, even though I'm using new batteries, my camera will not turn on. I will admit, I

Purple Pictures When in the camera mode my mvc-fd73 appears all purple, the pictures also turn out this way. I was outside taking pictures and noticed the screen color go nutz a couple of times. Came inside to take a few pictures and found the camera in this purple almost a solorized effect. The Screen looks fine in the play mode. I've tried a freshly charged battery and a fresh disk, but it made no difference.

This is a CCD sensor problem and should be replaced. Try to have it done free of charge by Sony even though your camera is an old model because CCD sensor should last 10 years +. ... Sony Mavica MVC-FD73 Digital Camera

I bought this camera second hand a few days ago. Unfortunately I did not know that the rechargeable batteries needed to be above 2000 mar and was using ones less than that. I also took it out on a very hot day. It suddenly stopped powering up at all. I have tried other batteries but still not working.

KODAK CAMERA I can put fresh batteries in and take a few pics download them shut it off then turn it back on, and it will not let me, it shuts off just about as soon as I turn it on. I can take the same batteries out and put them back in and it will work for a few minutes then there it goes, its turns itself off. I went to try to get another one and they said since itwas 10 days past the 30 day limit. I had to get ahold of you. I really feel like throwing it in the dam River.

Hi,\015\012I found that most digital cameras are fussy. They need the right type of battery. Try using energiser rechargables. They last longer and are the cheapest that work. Don't bother with cheap batteries they don't work. ... Kodak EasyShare Z710 Digital Camera

Remove from camera and change their position, i.e. what was + make - in the appropriate slot. It then works again, until next time! Looks like a contact problem but I don't know where to go with it.

My camera will not work even when battery is fully charged. I rubbed the contacts and it worked for 2 days. Now that doesn't work. Do I need a new battery or do I need a new camera? Also tried using rubbing alcohol and qtip on contacts.

Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts, or oxidation. They will have to be cleaned with a stronger abrasive (fine emory cloth or 800 grit sandpaper). Sometimes a pencil eraser will do it, but keep working on it, since it sounds like your ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos. After that, the camera is acting weird, pictures sometimes are taken but the picture is always dark, although flash is used and AUTO mode selected. I do not see the error message anymore, but the camera simply do not take pictures properly. I tried formatting, etc with no result.

Make sure flash is on your flash on cam is sticking. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

My cannon a 530 says that it has a memmory card error, and it shows memmory card locked momentarally at bottom of screen, i tried to unlock with the slide on the card itself, but that did not help. i put a new memmory card in and it shows the same. i also noticed a watch type battery next to the aa batteries, could that battery be the problem ? i have never changed that battery and this camera is several years old.

No that's not likely the problem. The new card is probably the issue, especially if it is 4GB or higher. There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC c ... Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

I have a Finepix S7000. This camera has been great for the entire time I have had it. Suddenly a day ago, I turn it on and it pretends to "Boot" up....the display comes on with the "Finepix" graphic...the lens "Moves" into position....the "Green" power light on the right grip side come on, (and stays on)....then, Nothing. When I try to turn it off and restart...nothing. The camera will not even turn "off" unless I open the battery hatch, (I put a fresh set in). Please help...I love this camera.

My D40 does not shut off properly, and sometimes turns on by itself. It seems to be getting worse, and sometimes I can only get it to turn off by putting the on/off switch in between the two settings. Also, sometimes if the camera gets left on I have trouble taking pictures the next time I go to use it (even if the battery is still charged).

Obviously something is wrong with the on-off switch. I would have it serviced. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please

The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer you zoom the worse the lines are. The lines cover the entire picture from top to bottom. I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.

Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens. ... Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera
