Hello, I own a Fugi Finepix F100 camera. Last week my dog was pulling on his leash trying to get to a gaggle of ducks and caused me to drop my camera down into snow. I tried to dry it off and in doing so might have damaged the retractable lens cover. Now it is not reliable in opening all the way, I usually need to help slide it back so that the lens is fully exposed. I really don't want to have an expensive repair unless necessary...what do you advise? Thank you! Linda

I have a Fuji Finepix A800. It shuts off when I press the shutter button. I put new batteries in and also opened it up to see if I could realign the shutter. It was dropped once, and someone online suggested that the shutter needs to be realigned after being dropped. I have it open, but don't know what to do to realign the shutter. Can anyone help?
The shutter runs in a track and there is nothing to be aligned. If the track or guides have been damaged then they need to be replaced. Unfortunetly this is not cost effective on this camera. It will cost as much as buying a new replacement. If you a ... Fuji FinePix A800 Digital Camera

Hi! We have 10 year's old Canon PowerShotS50. Today I got E18, lens would not open or retract. I've tried all the methods on http://www.e18error.com/repair.html , no help.

Hi hmlee, and thank you for your help. A few more details on my Mavica. We were taking pictures outside in the cold. When we came in the battery was drained, which the manual says may be due to the cold. My daughter plugged it in for a charge but dropped in in doing so. It would no longer charge...not sure if that was due to the cold or the drop. After trouble-shooting, we thought it might just be due for a new battery, so we bought one, but it only flashed when plugged in to charge. We bought a

My daughter dropped her sister's Nikon Coolpix S560 in the sanddunes today with the lens open. It still took pictures after that but the lens wouldn't close. Now it opens and closes and makes a grating noise like it's trying to focus, then it shuts down. Help! It is only 2 months old..
It seems that some sand particles are lodged between the lens casing and the camera's body. and when it finds that there is resistence in moving the lens, it shuts down. Use somethig that sucks, like the vacuum cleaner to **** the sand particles out. ... Digital Cameras
