Having problems with your GE A730 Digital Camera ?

Disassembling camera I have a GE A730 camera that was dropped. I think I can fix it If I can disassemble it enough. The problem is I can only get the back cover with the LCD screen off. The main board is loose except for a dozen solder points to the small top board, and a few wires. I really don't want to do any soldering, but I can't see how else to proceed. Anybody know what comes off next and how?

As to your problem. I do not know that camera specifically, how ever, taking apart the camera may not help you at all , anyway.

The reason is that if any kind of camera, including digital cameras, that the mechanical parts can be damaged beyond repair, and could only be good for parts. First, what is not working?
I have had cameras which I know had been dropped, and they were only good for parts to fix others.
Next, the internal parts of the lens are very sensitive to damage. The parts are very small, and can be damaged or the lens can be thrown off track by impact. When a digital camera has had an impact, then the camera should be tested to see what is working, if anything. If nothing turns on, even though the batteries are in, then it cannot be tested, and is good only for parts.

Many times, I have found that the impact damaged the LCD, and could not be detected easily. Even though I looked at the LCD with the camera on, I did not detect the LCD damage. I only saw it when I examined it very closely. A damaged LCD may cause some cameras to not turn on at all, since it needs the LCD to complete the circuits. Some cameras will turn on even though the LCD is taken out, and may work through the USB connection, or video connector.

One thing to remember with any digital camera or any small instrument such as this is that it is extremely important to remember where each screw came from. If a longer screw is put back in some cameras, it can lead to shorting out a circuit or causing the camera not to turn on at all.
Some system has to be devised to remember where each screw came from and return each screw to it's original position and place.

I have a Casio EZ-Z1050 10.1 megapixel digital camera and am very pleased with it. I use a 2Gb memory chip with it, however, some snaps have gotten into the cameras on board memory and I cannot seem to delete them. If I look via the camera it displays a No files message but if I download via USB all the pictures I don't want keep re-appearing. Advice as to how to delete from on the camera's on board memory would be very gratefully received. Thank you. Ron Bernstein.

I was needing a new flash for my sony a230 camera and I ordered a sony flash from accessorycircuit.com. Anyway to make a long story short, they were out of the flash I wanted and said that they had got the new Vivitar Pro 648 series flash in and that it was really good and would work with my camera. I wanted to read up and find out more before I bought it. I can only find out the tech specs on the vivitar pro648 on the vivitar site and that is the only place I can find out any info at all.

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!
