Having problems with your Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera ?

I just transferred images from my FE-20. When I finished and unhooked the USB cable and then tried to turn on the camera the card access lamp started to blink and the lens won't open. Any advice?

I agree that the camera needs to be sent back when this happens.  I have seen people suggest pulling on the lens (a bad idea) and smacking the camera / rapping it upon something (an even worse idea).  Not only will these options often fail ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera

Photosmart r727 camera wont turn on. It begins to power on, then the lens wont open and it'll shut down. If I can manage to get it to stay on, the lens wont focus. I got it just 3 months ago and have barely used it. I charged it one day, and then when I went to start it was the first time this began to happen.

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black.

Tried inserting paper in the barrell ring. The opening and closes appears very smooth so it is probably not grit there. Could be grit where the off-on button is or shooting button? Any advice?

Nikon d80 - most of the time memory card access lamp flashes and shutter release button doesn't trigger shutter. Sometimes it will stop blinking and camera will fire. Sometimes when it fires it will not show a preview image. When malfunctioning I can not bring up menu screen or access any features (shutter speed, f-top, or review screen. Have tried different memory cards, and lenses with no change.

Hi pantha. Turn it on and go into the menu and find the reset function. Reset it. This will merely set it at all of the parameters it was set at in the factory. IF this reset does not solve ALL of the problems, then you will have to take it or sh ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

SD Card When I try to insert the SD card into my D40X the card will go into the slot as normal but it wont click into place. It's just loose inside the slot. If I turned the camera on it's side with the Card Door open the SD card would just fall out and the camera is telling me there is no card. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Lens error I have an ixus 230 HS - I turned it on the other day & I must have bumped the lens or something, as it shut down. The lens stayed out though & wont close, when i turn it on it starts beeping at me & "Lens error, Will shut down automatically. Restart camera" comes up on the screen, it then shuts down again. I have removed the battery & the memory card, but to no avail.

My eos400d is taking photos but the lcd screen is not turning on at all. I cannot preview photos or access the menu. When it first did it the cf card started flashing wen I tried to take a photo.

My olympus FE-280 zoom lens has ceased to open out upon start up. It is not clear how to open up the back as the switch seems to be a delicate point - any advice is welcome.

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up

Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle positi ... Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera
