The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

I just bought an Alba SL 1231 digital camera from Argos. I charged the battery as per instructions and inserted into the camera. When I turn on the power the camera switches on ok but as soon as I release the power button it turns off again immediately, not giving me a chance to select the menu or any other function. Is this a fault or am I doing something wrong?

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll through everything in the memory, but when I press the shutter to take a photo, the camera switches itself off. If I press the power by itself the green light comes on for a millisecond, then switches off. It has not been wet, dropped or otherwise. I had it on the shelf one day working fine, the ne

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.

My cannon rebel will not take picture or go to the menu the only thing it will do is turn on. And when i turn it on a message pops up that says "shooting is not possible.

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.

This camera was working fine, was turned off, and then a day later wouldn't work. The LCD screen on back works only if the Mode Switch is in the review mode (or DOWN), and does not light up under the picture taking mode (or UP) position. Also, while the switch is in the UP position, the ON/OFF power indicator button no longer stays lit. It does, however, stay lit in the Mode Switch in the DOWN position. First problem in three years. Nice little camera.

The camera will not turn on after being dropped. When I switch it from off to on, the green power LED flashes briefly. The lens does not move or attempt to extend. The LCD backlight does not illuminate. The LCD appears to be slightly damaged: there is some slight non-uniformity visible when I shine a strong light on it. Otherwise the camera shows no sign of damage. Is it possible that the damaged LCD is preventing the camera from turning on? Is there a hard reset procedure I should try? I've t
