Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S5 Digital Camera ?

The zoom toggle will not work toward tele, only to wide angle.

\015 The zoom toggle Will work toward wide angle, but will not return to telephoto. A reset puts the zoom back to neutral, but again will only progress toward wide angle and not return to tele. Is this likely a worn toggle? Is repair possible? Thanks\015

Telephoto lens I have added a telephoto lens to my pro 1. I have 2 lens adaptor tubes and a merkury 2x 58 mm lens. When I try to photograph at any distance the object is blurry, out of focus.I have tried only using optical zoom and it still won't focus properly.Every other aspect of the camera is great.Macro works great with the merkury wide angle macro lens & adaptor, it's just the tele lens. HELP, I can't get as close to the deer as I would like without the tele lens.

Wide problem The moment the 3200 is switched on the wide angle indicator shows and the lens goes into wide and then tele. After this you cant click. Occassionally, on switching up the wide does not happen and shots can be taken and wide switch works. Switch it off and on again and the same problem happens. As long as the camera is on and the wide does not come up everything is fine.

My D80 was purchased in April 2008 along with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom lens. The camera and lens worked flawlesly until this past week end. The cameral stopped focusing in auto mode with no warning. I did hear a whining noise when I tried a Tamron 11-18mm wide angle lens. The auto focus did not work with that lens either.

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface


Maybe circuit contact resistance problem? Cheaper to buy another newer digital camera. ... Olympus FE-4000 Digital Camera

Hp945lens When I fix a wide angle lens to my camera and switch it on, the zoom tries to come out, fails and then turns the camera off. I'm assuming that because the screw-on lens is on the outer fixed lens this is stopping the zoom from coming out which then turns the camera off. What am I doing wrong?
