Lens error I tried to turn off my camera, (Digital Ixus 60) and the lens froze halfway closed. When I tried to restart the camera, an error comes up on the screen, saying LENS ERROR, RESTART CAMERA. I had this problem before on this camera, but while it was still under warranty. I sent it to be fixed, but now it seems the problem isn't fixed. Is there anything I can do now?

Sorry, it doesn't sound like a quick fix is going to work here. The lens sounds like it took a pretty good hit and may be misaligned now, which is keeping it from fully retracting. Your best bet is a service center at this point. ... Samsung S1070 Digital Camera

My olympus stylus tough 6000 keeps reverting to internal memory even when it has a memory card inside it. This is usually not a huge problem because i can pop the battery slot open and then take out the card and put it back in and it will usually fix the problem but i will be scuba diving in the bahamas in mid june and i have an underwater housing for the camera so as you might see popping the battery open at 40 feet below the surface could have some damaging effects to the camera.

I cannot turn the camera on. I guess it was dameged during my holidaying. I recall that, the camera was excidently turned on inside its holder and as the mechanism tried to push the lense out from the body it was blocked by the bag holding the camera. Now, when I try turning the camera on, the lense could not move forward at all. It gives cracking noises and turns itself off. Could this problem be fixed or better to buy a new camera? Arthur

Kodak v610 camera (easy share) My 10 year son was using our v610 camera and the following error message E45 (please see user manual) appeared on the screen. We were unable to switch the camera off and therefore the shutter remained open.

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.

No power the camera stopped operating, and when freshly charged battery was installed it still had did not turn on. When putting the battery in, noticed that the battery & charger have 4 contact slots/posts - but the camera has only 3 contact posts. Is that normal, or could 1 of them broken off? If normal, what else could be the problem? Absolutely love the camera & want to have it fixed. Please help. Phil

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.


Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera
