Lens error When I turn on Nikon Cool Pix S230, it tries to adjust the lens for a little bit then it says lens error.  It is only a few months old.  I think what caused the problem was the last time I took  a picture there was a strobe light in the background which caused the picture to look funny.  Then a few days later when I tried to work the camera I got this problem.  thank you!

Hi, my fuji fine pix camera has absolutely no power, i need it tommorow night for a big family event and it wont work. When i try and use charge it also there are no lights etc indicating a charge. A few month back i got my bag wet and the camera was in there. The camera worked after that when it was dried out. Now it does not, is there anything i can try at home to get it to work ??? :/ thankyou.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

We have Nikon Cool Pix 8800 - we have struggled with the camera from day 1 having a long delay between pushing shutter buttom and photo being taken. It seems recently that the problem has gotten so bad that anything other than a still picture is a frustrating moment. We believe we are shooting on automatic. If there isn't a setting that is wrong we are clearly on our way to selling the camera but we don't even feel good about that the way it currently works. Thanks Lynn

I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.


Get a new camera - you will have other problem besides the obvious ones. Liquid will produce corrosive material after it drys and remain in the camera and will be difficult to remove later. ... Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera

I'm surprised that you, a photographer who uses a Nikon, would buy a Kodak instead of a Nikon point and shoot. At any rate, the camera is obviously defective and you should take advantage of the warranty. Why, if it stopped in Feb. have you waited ti ... Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS Digital Camera

My Canon A430 Camera got a bit wet when I fell into a Dam this weekend. The camera did not at all touch the water, but a few drops of water did land on the camera. After drying the few drops off, the camera still worked for the whole day as well as the whole evening, but the next morning the camera did not work. The green light above the screen on the top left does flikker when the camera is turned on (which is normal). I am even able to take a photo and the flash works. Through all of the the s

I purchased a Nikon Cool Pix Camera in December 2009. In April, I was unable to take pictures for some unexplained reason. I took the camera into Best Buy to have the Geek Squad look at it. They told me it was a problem that needed to be addressed by Nikon. They said that it was obviously not a case of damage or abuse. Long story short, I sent the camera back to Nikon in May with a letter, receipt and warranty. I need to ask why, 6 months later, I still have heard absolutely nothing from yo

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(
