Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Switch glitch When i turn on my camera it goes off again within a few seconds (or maybe less). I have to turn it all the way off (slowly) and on again. Sometimes it stays on (at least long enough for a photo) and other times not. Has been getting worse so now the camera is pretty useless. I am presuming that the switch has had it (any other suggestions?) Interestingly while it was under warranty i had switch problems and it was replaced so this is the second switch on the camera.

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

Lens error CoolPix L11. I switch on the camera The lens comes out. A picture is shown for about 1 second. Then the message Lens Error is displayed. The lens is retracted. After 15 seconds or so the camera switches itself off. The camera was bought in USA as a gift for a friend in Sri Lanka. Not so easy to get a local repair - if this is at all possible anyway.

Put a new fully charged battery in - the camera would lasted for a couple of minutes and then would not switch on. The battery works fine in an identical camera.

Battery works fine in an identical camera. 10 minutes later - started working again, but the Sigma

Missing Pictures I took a bunch of pictures with my Power shot A60 i went to review them and they are gone. it is strange because whenever i take pictures i look at them right after and make sure they worked... i took proably about 100 pictures and only 20 of them were on the camera. is there anyway that the memory in the actual camera filled up then switched to the memory card and some how deleted all the pictures when it switched to the memory card?

I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way.

The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

My Ricoh R4 camera has its lens stuck in the fully extended position. After switch on, it makes motor noises for a while and then stops and switches itself off. Switching the camera on and off does not move the lens. Also, operating the zoom buttons does nothing. Having this great little camera working again would be fantastic!

When Mode switch is set to take pictures or clips, the camera shuts down in less than a second after I turn it on. If the Mode switch is in the far-left position (review pictures already taken), it stays on and I can see all the pics in the camera, but as soon as I switch to picture-taking mode the camera shuts down.

I swapped memory cards with my daughter as mine had a bigger memory. However it didn't seem to work properly in her camera. Her camera now freezes on the opening screen when its switched on and does nothing else, the lens also refuses to go back in.

I've checked the manual for mine which has no explainations. Also checked bat

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).


Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera
