Hi there, I used my camera in sea for many times, always was working nice. But some days ago I went to sea and the camera stopped working the flash. I left overnight off and next day it was working normally again. Then when I went to sea again (always about 2 or 3 metres deep) and the camera simply stopped work. I opened the card and batterie compartment was dry and fine, when I opened the compartment where I use for connect the USB cable was very wet. I left the camera off for 3 days to dry and

Battery/Docking Station The camera was working fine. No, I did not drop it nor has it gotten wet. I had recently gotten back from vacation and put the camera on the docking station. I extracted some photos put them on my computer. Then proceeded to just let the camera charge. After a few days I went to go and use the camera again, but it would not power up. I get nothing from it. Now, I went on Amazon and bought an equivalent battery to replace the Casio one. The camera worked. So I put it on t

Camera had beer spilled over it. Not much but enough to stop it working. I took it to a camera repair shop in Vitnam, The guy said he could fix it and went to work on it, when i got it back it worked perfect for a while and all of a sudden it stopped showing an image on the display. I can however look at previously taken photos. Just cant take new ones. If i take a photo and then check if an image came out (even though i couldn't see an image when i took the photo) nothing is shown. I really hat

I took my camera to the beach, took a picture and put it back in my bag. I then took the camera back out to take another picture the lens extended but then it went back in again it went to go back out but stopped and a loud beeping noise started and a message saying lens error restart camera. I don't know how to restart the camera and if that means turning it of then on it still doesn't work. What can I do now?
If your camera went into "standby" mode, the lens retracted and you may have thought it was off. You put it into the bag and slight pressure on a button reactivated it and the lens tried to come out but may have been prevented by something in the bag ... Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera
Format Error I have a SDSC-W55 with a 2GB SanDisk memory card. On a recent vacation, the camera just stopped taking pictures and displayed FORMAT ERROR on the screen. The card was half full and the battery had sufficient charge. I was initially able to display the pictures I took so I stopped using the camera. Now I cannot display any pictures at all. The camera displays the same error. My PC will not recognize the memory card. If I pull the card, the camera and PC works fine with the inter

Memory card Our old memory card stopped working in the camera. It said "memory card error". I bought a new card, 8gb duracell sdhc card, and when I put it in it said"memory card error" again. I tried formatting the card but it would not allow me to. I put the card in my computer and the new one works fine. I gave the old card to my brother in law to look at it, but he is on vacation, so I can't test it in my computer. I put the card that came with the camera in and it works fine, but it is a mmc
Unfortunately, the A520 does not support SD memory cards with more than 2GB capacity, and doesn't support SDHC at all. (1GB max for MMC cards.) I know memory is much cheaper than when the camera first came out, but in 2005 2GB was about as large as y ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it

Hi, I am an owner of a Kodak M340 camera. I bought this camera about a year ago and works perfectly. I recently went on vacation and took many pictures. I got home, plugged in the computer and tried to transfer the pictures to my computer. The software was already installed, so I just plugged in the computer and clicked on the button that said "transfer all". So the pictured were downloading and about 3 minutes later it said 100% complete. Once it was completed, I went to the album where the pic

Hi. I am on vacation in the Indian Ocean islands at this moment with a brand new Nikon D90 + 18-105 lens. Was taking photos this morning. From one shot to another, the camera suddenly stopped working. When I press the shutter button, it still focuses and when I click through, I can hear the shutter clicking (tried this with different shutter speeds). However, no photo is captured/stored. Also, the Lv button no longer works. When I press it, the camera is unable to switch from viewfinder to LCD l

We went to a water theme park and my camera fell into the water (immersed completely). After that I tried to turn it on to check it works or not but it was showing some problems. Then I opened the battery and left it for a day like around 24 hours. Now when I try to turn on the camera. It says Lens Error. What could be done in this situation. Camera Model : Canon IXUS 80IS. Need some assistance in this regard.
Turning on a camera with water inside is risky. You can fry the circuits. I'm amazed yours worked although for how long is anyone's guess. It should have been buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week. Even so, water will have seeped between the lens e ... Canon Digital Cameras
Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message.

Autofocus problem I dont really know how to explain my problem.. I got a Nikon D40 for Christmas last year and last week we went on vacation. The camera was working fine. but suddenly the camera wouldn't auto focus. Everything is set on auto.. I only have the lens that came with the camera. The battery is charged.. it doesnt even make a noise like its trying to focus. the wiewfinder bracket thingy lights up red but nothing after that.

Won't focus I was out shooting some sports the other day and all of a sudden my camera (D70 with a 200mm lense) would not focus and started going a little crazy. however, it would still take a shot occasionally. when i tried to change the menu, the menu itself on the monitor was jumping around and wouldnt let me select anything. then suddenly it worked again. then again, just as suddenly, it stopped working. this has never happened before and I'm at a total loss other than to take it to a dealer

Shutter Problem I have an Olympus C-750 that I was in love with until 5 days before my vacation when the shutter button decided to stop working. Zoom in and out still works, but the shutter will not respond to the button or the remote. The other strange symptom is when I turn the camera on, it snaps a picture (and then won't take anymore). Thought I might have managed to put it in a certain mode or hit some magic series of buttons to put it in this strange mode, but I can't undo it. Tried changi
I had an Olympus C-3000 this same type of sympton happened to me. I sent it off to Olympus to be fixed (via local camera dealer).

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.
Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one. ... Canon Digital Cameras

I took a number of photos of a particularly memorable day when none of the group had a camera with them. Every time a photo was taken the image was displayed for a second before being able to take another shot. A number of times I went back to check the photos, each time the photo was visible.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially
