The camera was working fine until I purchased a pack of kodak rechargeable batteries. After a week or so of using them my camera stop coming on when I would press the power button, it would make this beeping noise and the lens wouldn't extend. After continuously pressing the power button I got it to come on but again the lens did not extend and the screen was frozen. Why am I having this problem and how can I fix it?

My Canon powershot SD20 seems to constantly have a drained battery. I have two batteries for it, and each one seems to be good for about five minutes, then the camera says change the battery pack and it shuts off. But when I plug the battery in to charge the green fully charged light comes on within a minute. Are BOTH of the batteries defective, or is this a problem with the camera itself?

Regina's camera I have a Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital. Worked great until...I dropped it from about 3 feet onto packed sand. Now I can still review the pictures I've taken, but when I go to take a new picture, the lens comes out then retracts. Is there any solution or did I trash the camera with one small drop?

I removed battery pack from the camera. About two months later, I put it back, and when I turned on the camera, the LCD was completely blurred, with purple vertical streaks throughout the picture. I never had a problem when I've removed the battery. Old pictures appear fine, but now when I take a picture, it comes out almost completely distorted.

Fuji 500AF doesn't wind film through. The shutter clicks and the camera sounds like it's winding, but no film comes through. I've changed the batteries and film pack without luck.
Check that the gear is catching the film tracks. There could be not enough tension on film. If the gear is not spinning, the internal gears could be broke, fell off, or the glue has worn loose between gear and motor shaft. ... Digital Cameras
Zoom Error Hi all, New to site and hope you can help me! I have a Fuji S3000 that has worked very well for last couple of years and all of sudden has packed up, coming up with "zoom error" when you turn it on. I have done the obvious (change the batteries) but to no avail. Any ideas. I have recently been to the North Pole with this camera and it worked perfectly well at -40 degrees (after warming the batteries!) and has only worked for a day since returning!
I had this problem with my Fujifilm E900 under warranty, and Fuji replaced the zoom mechanism. Nine months later, this past weekend, the same problem occurred. I appear to have solved it by gently but persistently wiggling the lens into a fully zoome ... Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera
Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

Toshiba PDR-M700 When I power up the camera, the lens will not come out and sometimes will come out all the way to maximum zoom. When I power off with the lens out, it clicks as if something is stripped or loose. After shut down, I can push the lens back in. Once in a while the camera will work but eventually the "Lens Error" message comes up. This was a good expensive camera when I bought it but taking it in for service would probably cost more than the price of a new camera today. Can you sugg

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself.
