I have an Olympus E300 and I don't know what I did but when I turn on to take photos now the display shows "0" photos available to shoot even though I've essentially cleared all images off; and when I press the button to shoot it will not snap.

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS
