Having problems with your Kodak Easyshare M893 Digital Camera ?
My problem is exactly the same as the original poster's.
\015 I am able to transfer images to my computer, but when I try to turn the camera on when it's not connected to my laptop, the screen comes on for a second or two, lens comes out, green light is on and then blinks and turns red and blinks and then lens goes back in and camera turns off. I've tried removing the battery, wiping it off, putting it back in, camera also wont charge. It's never gotten wet or been exposed to extreme heat.\015
It may be that there is a setting in the camera that has been changed to make the camera only operate from the computer. I suggest looking around the menu in the camera when it is attached to your computer.

Battery Problem I bought a Nikon Coolpix L12 Digital Camera this past summer and have had no problem until last night. My camera turned off and said "battery exhausted."

Hi, I had a problem with a Sony video camera (HDR-CX6EK) in 2009. The problem then was that the LCD screen interferes when unfolding the screen and when the screen was unfold completely the voltage of the device fell away. They changed 6 parts: 3 for the panel section (MCBRD CK-178, PCBRD FP-737 FLEX, SWITCH BLOCK CONTROL) and 3 for the voltage section. Last week during my vacation i had exactly the same problem as before and I didn't film that much since 2009. Could it be the same p

My HP Photosmart 945 has the following problem: pictures have wrong colour. It is hard to describe what is exactly wrong. Sometimes it looks like black and white colors, some other times pictures appears with satured colours, other time edges appears highlighted. All other stuffs are working properly. Any idea?

I have new Nikon D90 with 18-105 Nikon lens. The only problem with the camera, when shooting potraits in dim light without flash, the pictures get black artefacts throughout the faces and skins. I used different lenses and reset the camera setting to the factory original, but no help. Thank you for solving the problem... Hamid Jakarta, Indonesia
This has nothing to do with the camera, but instead it has to do with the lens you are using. The standard lens you are using has an aperture of f/4.5 which is common across many lenses. If you wish to shoot in low light you need a lower "f-stop". ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

DARK PICTURES I just bought a Konica Minolta X1 DiMAGE digital camera. But I bought it used. It looks brand new and the seller had everything that came with it originally including the original box.So far, I have been extremely disappointed with it. ALL od the pics I have taken with it are very dark. I have tried every setting on the flash and it makes no difference. And it does it inside or outside. Could the problem be the lithium-ion battery? The battery gets weak fairly soon after powering t

Broken MIrror? well your sub-mirror is broken inside of the camera, i had the same problem, it just happens by itself after extended use of the camera, and it is not a means for recall by canon so you have to deal with it yourself. this website can fix it for $130 and they will replace it with a metal piece so it doesn't happen again(original piece is weak plastic) I just read the above solution. It looks like I may have the same problem - I have easily taken 50,000 pictures with my Canon Rebe
