I just took over 67 pictures on my Kodak EasyShare P850 camera. I put my smart card in my computer and it only showed less than 1/2 of the pictures. I copied them to a CD. When playing a slide show it comes up with an drawing error. I've never seen this. It seems that if I press the review button it messes up everything.

The camera was dropped while the lens was open. The camera now only opens about half an inch out and then shuts on itself. When it shuts it powers down and will not stay on. I am assuming that the motor is the problem, if so is it fixable? How would I fix it? How much would that cost?

Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago... Everything was working fine, no problems. After I bought an extra battery I tried turning the camera on but would not power up. In fact will only power on if I insert and remove the battery several times. Once I get it going, however, it powers off with the lens extended. Please tell me what my options are, s

This camcorder hasn't been used for many years but when I switch it on although it has power to it, the view finder just has a vertical white line down it. It's the same whether it's on 'camera' or 'player'. Any idea what's wrong and whether it's fixable?


Does it work at all with out the view finder? If it does work completely then you can use the camera without the view finder. Point and shoot and the more you use it the better you get at it. Good Luck ... Digital Cameras

Power problem I was charging camera using 4.5 DC volt socket on Camera, next I switch on camera so Lens head came out, accidentally power pin came off from camera and lens will not go back. Now nothing happening to camera when power cord connected or with battery, camera will not switch on at all including power lite does not come on with power cord connected. Look like it may have blown fuse in camera or something else serious. Any solution which I can try? I'm a very handy man with good too

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted.

Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when the camera is powered on but I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen and no image is captured when a pic is taken. I changed the batteries and it made no difference.


I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
