Everything seems to be working but the shutter release button. It does nothing, even depressing the button halfway for metering shows nothing. no indicators in viewfinder info line. I assumed it was a third party Battery problem, as there was a Impact battery being used primarily at the time. However replacing the Battery with a pentax battery didn't change anything. Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.

Charging battery the battery died when in use and when we placed it on the charger the red light flashes instead of staying solid red and does not charge the camera. Other functions on the cradle work. I tried removing and reinsertting the battery and checked the contacts and they are clean. the contacts on the charger are also clean. I down loaded the pictures on it thru the cradle so that seems to be working

Dear Sirs, my Sony DSC F828 would switch off partly through a photo shoot and then it is a problem to get it back on again. If I remove the battery it would come on for a few seconds or untill it has booted properly and then switch off again. The battery is fully charged when this happens so it don't seem to have anything to do with the battery being improperly charged. Could you please give an answer on this one!!!

Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy.. It shows a lens error when turned on; asks to 'remove the lens cap' even if it is already removed. The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell. I purchased it from UK, and I'm n

Samsung L83T fully charged but beeps 3 times and switches off? The screen doesn't come on at all, and the low battery message does not show. Shop said it could be a circuit problem & not economically viable? What do you think? The battery is charging normally and the lead light goes green. I have removed the replaced the card. I can take pictures off the card so it seems ok. Is it time for a new one?.

I have an Olypus FE-230 Digital Camera, and I was trying to upload photos to my computer. This wasn't working, so I ejected it, but instead of ejecting I was told the device was improperly removed (though I hadn't disconnected it at all). Now when I turn it on I only get a screen with two options: Power Off or Reset. I've only clicked Power Off, but I can't get anything other than this screen. The battery was running low so i've charged it. It isn't fully charged, but should be at least half-way

I have a Fuji Finepix F45 camera. After taking a photo the screen shows a badly blurred image. Same applies if I load the memory card into my PC. The image has wavy lines.
