Having problems with your Olympus FE-5020 Digital Camera ?

My camera has lines down the left side. Do you know how to fix this?


Answers :

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

If the lines are only on the display, and they don't appear on photos, then the lcd display is most likely faulty. If the problem doesn't affect the quality of your pictures, you should let it be.

if you are getting problems in your pictures as well, viewing them on the computer or on another device, then the problem is most likely the ccd sensor in the camera, probably not worth the repair if you are outside of warranty.

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Ekse

I have a Olympus X-560WP & when I turned it on, the screen appears with a P in the left corner, a red flash symbol in the right corner & it says on the bottom +1.0 1/30 F3.7.

E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.


Try a hard reset first - Remove batteries and SD card, wait 5 minutes and reinsert everything and try. If the issue still recurrs, then best take it to the shop and check it out. You should still have the warranty on it. If they cannot fix it, ask th ... Digital Cameras

I am using Canon EOS 5D. I was taking pictures of the sunset this evening, then the mirror inside the camera dropped out inside. I opened the camera and saw the little mirror (I don't know what it's called) was not in the position it's supposed to be. I guess the glue between it and the camera didn't work, so the mirror can stick to the camera. Please help me! What can I do now? I can't afford to fix it at this time, and I don't know if it's a serious problem.


Has the mirror actually fallen off from the frame or is it that it is misaligned? Both, by themselves, are not serious problems. You do not need to pay much for fixing it.

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it


The only thing that can be done but may not fix it is to push reset switch under battery compartment door (pinhole)..also make sure you do use fresh batteries.Use good batties not cheap batteries because these camera require good current to drive ..i ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera
