Error-C1 I was on holiday in dusty hot conditions when my second hand camara became unusable. I turned the camara on to take a photo and the zoom lens and shutter became stuck. The screen went blue and 'error-C1' appeared on the screen. Every time I turned it on thereafter the same blue screen came up and it makes a strange mechanical noise when I turn it on. It also turns itself off after a few seconds but the zoom still doesn't shut. The battery symbol still appeared but it appeared to be out

Hello, I have the s7000. My batteries seem to be fine. It does not save the pictures quickly like it used to. The green light at the back stays orange for a while, then flickers orange/gree, then it has saved the photo and i can shhot again. Also when i turn it off, if the light is orange it will not close or retract the lens. Only after a few seconds, quite a few will it close. I also notice the pictures are not as sharp as before. Also, a few times the lens has not come out when turned on,


The saving issue may well be helped by unloading the photos from the memory and memory card and then reformatting it. It is recommended that the memory be reformatted after every download of photos rather than just extracting them and using the ... Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

I have an Akai digital camera model DC6371. On start up the lens pops out and screen lights up, but then the screen closes down and (often) the lens remains out even when the camera has been turned off.

Looks like you have the notorious lens stuck problem. Since you said it pops out occasionally but does not go in, it is probably a faulty motor or some kind of mechanical obstruction. A qualified camera should be able to fix this for you but I recomm ... Akai DC6371 Digital Camera
