Having problems with your GE A730 Digital Camera ?

GE A730 takes picture on startup, then responds to NOTHING.

\015 Hi I have a simple GE A730 7.0 MP that is less than a year old. I think this model is a cheapie that has been rebranded several times. I lent mine out to a friend for a meeting and since it came back, it takes a picture while it is starting up and then sits unresponsive. No buttons work except for the power button. Bizarre as heck.Anybody have a similar experience?ThanksJ\015

When I turn the camera on, the screen displays the last picture taken. I can take a picture but there is nothing shown in the viewing screen before I take the picture, so I don't really know what it is I am taking a picture of. The menu screens come up when pressed but nothing else appears to help. I have a PowerShot A720 IS.Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Barton G. Stone [email protected]

When I turn on my camera to take a picture the display screen is completely black. If I try and take a picture nothing comes out. The whole picture is completely black.

But when I switch to the display mode to view my pictures, I can see the old pictures from my memory card. But I just can not take any new pictures. What should I do?

I have a new D40 and I have had the same problem twice already on two separate occasions. I go to click to take a picture, and it does not take. Nothing happens at all. I try again and nothing happens. I try to refocus, but it does not help. I have to turn it off and on again to get it to work and click to take the picture. Thinking of if I should get the D3000 instead. Any thoughts on that and why this happens?

LCD/Recording Picture When I take a picture, the camera will only record about 1/4 of the picture on the LCD screen, then rest of the image is black. I was taking lots of pictures before that and the image recorded on the LCD. All of a sudden (in the mdidle of taking lots of pictures), I noticed the the whole image was not recording. I have changed the battery, changed Compact Flash Cards and nothing corrects it. Even when I upload the picture to the computer, the image is only one about 1/4

Nikon cooplix 4300 worked for 5 years fine now it will turn on take one picture and then when I press the button to take another picture it won't work (the button physical won't go down to take the picture).

Disney Pix Micro digital won't take pictures at all. Took one and now won't work. Will take pictures only when connected to computer, but I must click the "Take Picture" button on the computer.

Cannon Camera I can take pictures and can only view the last picture taken only. Also the function or menu button does not respond.

My pictures have a yellow cast to them and they are not very sharp. When I take pictures outside, my photos are invariably washed out. I find myself manually adjusting light balance before I print (either darkening if I take picture outside or lightening if I take the picture inside). I almost always use Auto mode. I have found nothing that corrects the nasty yellow cast.


Have you changed the white balance setting? ... Digital Cameras

Picture error I have a problem with my Olympus SP 500UZ. When I take a couple of pictures on one day. Shut the camera down and start it later on to take new pictures. The screen turns blue when I want to see the pictures. It gives the message: Picture Error or Fatal error and every photo on the memory card is gone!

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.


The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras

Well when i take a picture, it takes it. but when i try and take another picture, it just beeps three time. and then i tried to turn it off, and it wont do that either. it just says "please wait for your camera to finish recording" but im not recording anything. and i waited for a bit to see what happened. and all it says not is "system error" in red. the only way to turn it off is to take the battery out. i tried to reset it. but nothing is working...


Sounds like you have a bad camera,try to take it back to the store you got it from and tell them what is going on,be careful thou as people are getting stupid nowadays. ... Digital Cameras

I cannot take a picture. When I try nothing shows up in the viewfinder and nothing shows up on the memeory card. Old pictures still show up in the viewfinder when I scroll through the pictures. The camera will show nine pictures but only the two old ones will be displayed when scrolling through.


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
