Having problems with your Hitachi M2 Digital Camera ?

Switching off I have four older digital cameras (Olympus, HP, Oregon and Vivitar) and they're now all doing much the same thing. That is switching off as soon as they're switched on. The problem has come on progressively over a few days with all of them so it seems like a virus. I download images directly into a Windows XP system.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.


These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

E:91:01 My camera got wet a couple of days ago and since then the flash symbol and the E:91:01 error message comes on whenever I switch it on. It only works when plugged into the mains (the battery will not charge). All functions apart from flash seem to be working, and it still takes pictures when plugged in.

Camera stalling The problems started after using my camera on a windy day at the beach 3weeks ago. After a few days, the lens started getting stuck, and wouldn't come out, or if it did, didn't focus properly. This problem was intermittent. Then, in the past several days, the camera systems stall when I switch it on. The lens comes out and zooms fully. but It will not respond to any of the control buttons. Which part of the camera is the problem? is it fixable? How much is the estimated cost of r

Hi, I've never had any problems transferring photos to my laptop until now. Suddenly, nothing is happening. I switch the camera off, connect it up, switch it back on again and the 'on' light comes on but the lens doesn't come out and the laptop doesn't seem to acknowledge the camera is there. Can anyone help?


Maybe you should update or reinstall the software? Does your camera act like it's connected (like black screen, special light, no access to menus, etc. etc.)? Check if there's a problem with your cable. ... Nikon Coolpix S550 Digital Camera

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

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff


If the troubleshooting section in the back of the user guide doesn't help, I sugget getting in touch with Sony and asking them if it's normal, the only thing I can suggest in the meantime, is taking the battery out while it's not in use, or recharge ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2 Digital Camera

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll through everything in the memory, but when I press the shutter to take a photo, the camera switches itself off. If I press the power by itself the green light comes on for a millisecond, then switches off. It has not been wet, dropped or otherwise. I had it on the shelf one day working fine, the ne

The problem with my W290 is that the lens is not coming out when I switch the power on. It seems that the lens is trying to come out but is not able to. Is there somethign I can do ?


Clearly, that is a mechanical fault with the lens. Call Sony about it, and tell them you want to send your camera in for repair. They should give you a form to fill out. You'll probably have it back within a couple of weeks, and given that your camer ... Sony Cyber-shot W290 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon Coolpix S3000 digital camera that cannot be switched on. I purchased this camera 2 months ago and have not damaged it or exposed it to extreme temperature, humidity or light conditions. One day it ran out of battery and when I tried to recharge it with the USB cable the green light that normally indicates charging did not appear. There seems to be no way to charge or switch on this camera anymore. Can you please help me with this problem? Thank you.

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,


The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Dear Sirs, my Sony DSC F828 would switch off partly through a photo shoot and then it is a problem to get it back on again. If I remove the battery it would come on for a few seconds or untill it has booted properly and then switch off again. The battery is fully charged when this happens so it don't seem to have anything to do with the battery being improperly charged. Could you please give an answer on this one!!!

The contacts on the battery terminals inside the camera could be slightly oxidized, however, this sounds like a lens issue. Here is a blog that talks about the various things you can attempt to try to resolve it. If nothing seems to help, don't u ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

My D70 (which I just bought on ebay) is having problems with AF. At time the AF works fine but then for no reason it refuses to work for hours to days. I have two bodies so I can swap lenses to see that its not the lens. If I switch to manual focus, it the camera works fine. I can see the little pins around the lens fitting retract when I switch the camera to manual. Seems like a problem with the internals that control AF. No other problems are apparent to me. Any suggestions?


Sounds like a contact issue - either they are not making consistently or they are just dirty. I'd start with a good contact cleaner (Radio Shack or photo store) and spray the snot out of both the camera contacts and lense (making VERY sure to protec ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

I have a samsung S630 digital camera, about 2 years old. It seems to have stopped being able to download images onto my laptop. The laptop recently was recently repaired and I'm not sure if they removed some programs... I've tried reinstalling the software on the CD ROM that came with the camera, plus updating Adobe etc, but nothing works - when the camera screen comes up with 'connect to computer', I press 'OK' but then it just goes black and switches off! Any suggestons?
