Answers :

If you dont have rechargable NiMH batteries get these first. Alkalines just dont have the power anymore these newer devices need.\015\012\015\012If you do have NiMH and yours still having problems try and tap on the lenses as you power it on.\015\012\015\012As the motors that drive the autofocus and the lens mechanisim wear they draw more current. When this happens the unit draws more power then the batteries can supply and you run into problems. \015\012\015\012If your camera has a battery pack you may need a new one. They test them new and everything is good on paper but after some use things change.

My S3 IS was working perfectly until one day it powered on but simply would not snap a photo. And once it's powered on, I can't turn it off. I have to leave it on and it eventually powers down after some time. I've tried new batteries and turning it on several times without any luck. The screen powers on and I can access the menus, but it won't take a picture or zoom. Any ideas?

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen.

The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste
