Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

I can't access the menu, photo playback, etc on my Nikon D40x

\015 The display doesn't work except immediately after a picture is taken. I can't access playback, the menu, etc. I used to be able to get into the playback mode if I hit the button right after taking a picture (while it was still displayed). Now, I can't even do that.\015

Hi. I have a Canon Xsi/450D Camera. I can access the menu funtions when in the preset modes eg. landscape, sports etc. but when i rotate the dial past the Auto mode into the manual settings modes(the creative zone as canon calls them) the menu funtion will not work.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

My eos400d is taking photos but the lcd screen is not turning on at all. I cannot preview photos or access the menu. When it first did it the cf card started flashing wen I tried to take a photo. After taking some more photos I got a full cf card message. I deleted photos using my computer as I cant see anything on the screen but the lcd screen still wont come on.

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.

Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera
