Having problems with your Leica C-Lux 1 Digital Camera ?

Dropped my Leica


\015 I accidentally fell while climbing some rocks and the Leica was strapped to my wrist but hit something while I slipped. There are dents on the screen side of the camera on the edge. It just won't turn on, what do you think can be done?\015

Answers :

Hi,

Try the steps given below:
1 Remove the memory card, then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should work.
2 The next thing to try is examining both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors that activates when the doors are closed. It will be a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be a jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.

If you still face the problem then there is some internal problem in camera, you need to take to service center to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

My Pentax Optio A20 camera display doesn't show true colors, they now have a red-orange tint. It was dropped on the grass yesterday. When I play back the pictures, all of them show up as red-orange on the display, the ones I took before it was dropped and after it was dropped. Everything else works fine on the camera. My brother-in-law says that there may be a reset button to restore factory settings.


It sounds like you may have a broken display. It is possible that it is the main board, but much more likely that it is the LCD display. I can fix this for $40, not matter if it is the display, or the main board. Or you can send it to Pentax in A ... Pentax Optio A20 Digital Camera

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe?
