Batteries are fully charged. I can turn my camera on and look through my pictures, go through all the menus, etc., but as soon as I hit the button to take a picture, the camera just shuts off. I can immediately turn the camera back on, but it makes a strange clicking sound before it turns on. My lens is stuck out because even if I turn the camera on and turn it right back off manually, the lens does not retract.

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?

I was in the middle of shooting a wedding, when suddenly my camera said that it was 'busy' - it was taking a while to go back to normal, so I decided to shut the camera off and just turn it back on again (I didn't mind loosing the last image). When I turned the camera back on... all of the sudden the shutter kept going off extremely fast (without me pressing the shutter button). I turned the camera back off, but the shutter kept going off. I freaked out and too the battery out to make it stop.

I have a Pentax M20 camera. I love the camera but all of a sudden I find that when I turn the camera on, the camera almost instantly shuts off. I have new batteries in the camera. When the camera first starts up I can see "Green Mode" on the screen but it immediately shuts down. The camera is not allowing me to access any programming modes at all and certainly not allowing any picture taking. Until just a few days ago I have had absolutely no problems with this camera. Any advice is greatly appr

EX-S880 Shutdown I have a problem with my camera where it will automatically shut down as soon as I push the shutter button. The on/off button will not turn the camera on, but it will turn it off.

Is there any way I can get my camera back to normal! I turned it on and it said "focus error". When I shut it off to see if it would start over correctly it would not close the lens.

It obviously is capable of opening and closing but seems to be reversed and makes a funny noise when it can't shut at the right time. Can I wiggle or giggle something? I bo

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. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.
