Hi, I've a Sigma 28-105mm aspherical 3.5-5.6 lens. Auto focus does not engage. I can hear the motor trying, but the ring does not turn. When I switch to manual focus, I can turn the ring to focus manually, but I still hear the motor trying to use autofocus. Additionally, sometimes the shutter will not fire in manual focus while the motor is still searching. I've cleaned the contacts, but no joy. I suspect a faulty switch, but that doesn't completely explain the autofocus not engaging. I am
Well, I think you have at least one problem pinpointed, in that I suspect the focusing ring is jammed, and cannot rotate with the electromagnet signals. The other problem might be a faulty auto/manual switch. Of course, check for oxidation and e ... Digital Cameras

I have a cannon powershotA720 IS & it won't keep the date & time so I have to reset it every time I switch it on. Can you help me or is it a faulty camera

After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff
If the troubleshooting section in the back of the user guide doesn't help, I sugget getting in touch with Sony and asking them if it's normal, the only thing I can suggest in the meantime, is taking the battery out while it's not in use, or recharge ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2 Digital Camera

I accidentally dropped my camera with the lens open and it bent so now the camera cannot close, it just shuts off. My memory card is the issue though. I have put it in 2 other cameras, but I still get the Memory Card Locked error. I cannot seem to unlock it (I have flipped the switch on the side over and over and plugging the camera into the computer with the faulty card produces no response). I can't get to my pictures.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX5. Camera switches itself on even though it is switched off. Many occurrences of this. It has been examined and tested but nothing found wrong. Re-charged batteries run down quickly, even new ones. Comprehensive notes have been taken of the many events. In previous events, it switched itself on, then off again within seconds. This time it needed to be switched off by switching on then off switch.

Switch glitch When i turn on my camera it goes off again within a few seconds (or maybe less). I have to turn it all the way off (slowly) and on again. Sometimes it stays on (at least long enough for a photo) and other times not. Has been getting worse so now the camera is pretty useless. I am presuming that the switch has had it (any other suggestions?) Interestingly while it was under warranty i had switch problems and it was replaced so this is the second switch on the camera.

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

The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on. If I remove the card and try to switch the camera on it still won't turn on, I have to remove the battery, put it back in then switch on the camera. Any ideas what's wrong?
