Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use

Shutter button on my digital rebel xt stopped working. I can press down far enough (halfway) to get it to focus but then it won't click all the way down and release. For several months before this final calamity, it would frequently happen that when I went to take a photo the button wouldn't engage at all and I'd have to try several times and miss the shot I wanted before I could get the shutter button to engage. Now that it's not working at all, I sent it to Canon for repair and have just rec

I have two olympus 1010 camera's. Both have been dropped. The lens is patially open and the cover not fully closed. One will turn on so you can see through the LCD but only the top third of the field is visible. When photos are taken that is what shows up. Also it tries to focus but can't get it clear. The second powers up with information on the LCD but instead of seeing through the camera you see black. Phots can be taken but they too are black. What is wrong and what can be done to fix them?
