Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything. Any ideas? Has anyone had this problem before? Camera is only a year old so hope it's not broke! thanks for the help.

Every time I power up my D5000, and press the shutter button half way (to auto-focus) the image in the viewfinder shakes, and after a few seconds the image shifts slightly and something internal seems to lock into place. After this, all functions are normal, but this issue is annoying, and obviously not right. Any ideas?
Inside the lens assembly, is a circular, edge-geared focusing lens, with electromagnets on it. It has to be able to spin freely to focus, and focuses with signals from the focusing system and cpu, etc. When any dust, lint, sand, etc. get inside ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

Turned on camera and all pics from memory card were erased. The number 670 still shows up in the right corner of the camer when I turn it on. When I take a picture, it says 1. Pictures and camera seem to be working fine. I took the memory card to CVS and pics are not there. I don't have a clue what happened to the pics I had on the memory card but I hope I can somehow retrieve them. Thanks

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do? I have air dusted it, gently pulled and twisted lens, restarted and recharge ba

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

Is there any way I can get my camera back to normal! I turned it on and it said "focus error". When I shut it off to see if it would start over correctly it would not close the lens. I turned it on and the lens closed and then opened again and wouldn't focus. I turned it off and the lens won't shut. How weird is that? It obviously is capable of opening and closing but seems to be reversed and makes a funny noise when it can't shut at the right time. Can I wiggle or giggle something? I bo

Similar to another post, I dropped my Canon Rebel XS (strap caught a chair) and it landed on my tile floor. Everything seems to work fine except the auto focus. Because I thought it landed lens first I bought another 18-55mm lens. However when I put the new lens on the auto focus on does not work on this one either. Any ideas whats on what is going on?

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?

My Olympus FE-370 has a broken screen, my fault. I bought a replacement off ebay for really cheap and it seems like it would work fine, but I'm having trouble taking the camera apart..A few of the screws, three around the screw-in tripod holder in the base of the camera, two on the right hand side close to the lens, and one right under the USB port, refuse to come out! If someone could help me with just that part, I would probably be able to figure out the rest! Thank you!
