Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera ?

Zoom Control The zoom control has stopped working. In the Summer on holiday, I noticed that the zoom control was working only intermittently. It seemed to be making poor contact and I found that flicking it sometimes helped. Now it has ceased to work at all. Is there any way of cleaning the contacts or having a service carried out?

Problem with the Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera Turning on camera in picture taking mode has lens going full zoom. In picture review mode no controls work. Out of a sudden I can't preview anymore, and in camera mode the zoom goes to 16X and I can't take pictures. Just doesn't work. I did not drop it or harm it in anyway.....please help.


This is going to be an internal problem. It sounds like you might have two problems going on. The zoom switch might be broken, and jammed in the on position. As for previewing your pictures, this could be a slightly loose ribbon connector from ... Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

The optical zoom has stopped working on my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. It was working fine, but now moving the zoom control clock/anticlockwise does not move the lens at all. I've tried the "conversion" settings, and also done a complete reset of all settings via the menu, but it hasn't made any difference. All other functions are operating correctly.

I purchased my G11 end of Nov 2009, and just started to have problems this morning. When shooting, the directional buttons, control dial and func/set button won't work. Also, if I zoom in on a subject the camera automatically zooms out, in, and out again... randomly, as if it had a mind of its own. When viewing photos already taken, the same problem happens. Once it happens, none of the buttons will work. This happens about 1 minute after the camera has been switched on. Is there a way in which

I have a Canon PowerShot A2000IS. The zoom lever is no longer function to the right. As in, the zoom lens still works but the zoom lever will not control it, I have confirmed this by attempting to use the zoom lever in the playback mode. Is this repairable, or an extremely technical mechanical error?

My SD800IS was working fine while in the very hot/humid environment of Yap. I took it out of my air conditioned room and went to take a picture almost immediately. The view finder, the LCD image and the lens were all fogged. The camera worked but took foggy images. Eventually the fog cleared and my photos were fine but most of the controls no longer work. I can change the selector knob that determines if the camera is on auto, manual, video or display modes but it won't zoom and the program

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks

I have the SX-10. The view finder, before grabbing scene has a spider-web pattern, which does not show up in shots. This problems is minor compared to the zoom control sticking. I have disassembled the body to see if there is dirt or other visible reason, but see nothing. I have four other cameras, and am retiring this one, because it takes too much fiddling. If I could get it working well, I could give it away. Any non-pro solution?


Nope since its not showing up on the shots but the viewfinder is distorted its a clear case of faulty LCD. Does this pattern appear on the menus and stuff as well? ... Casio Exilim EX-S12 Digital Camera

Without warning, my Canon PowerShot A530 ceased to function correctly. I turned it on, and it automatically zoomed all the way in. I can now only take pictures like that, and none of the buttons except the on/off and the mode dial work. It was never dropped or exposed to any rough elements, so I'm at a loss as to what could've caused it. Any suggestions?

Hi, I have a Sony DSC-W100 cybershot camera that the mode switch has gotten flaky. If you just touch it, it switches modes and if you rapidly change modes back and forth from one end of the control to the other, it may work for a while and then gets flaky again. Acts like the switch has dirt in it. Can I buy the switch? Clean it? or should I just toss the camera? Jim Lofgren in Redmond, WA
