Shortly before having this problem, I seem to recall a message in red letters on the display that said something to the effect that my battery pack was bad. I have a sinking feeling that my battery is good, but there is something wrong with my camera. Can you recommend what I should do?

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures.

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way.

If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model) ... Digital Cameras

Is there a way to "restart" my Casio Exilim EX-Z700? While I was taking a picture it seemed to freeze while it was trying to display the picture I just took - then, with the lens still popped out the screen stayed blank and it turned off, and now it won't turn on. The lens is still stuck in the "out" position. No buttons work. I tried to put it in the cradle to charge, and tried a different battery as well. Nothing works. Camera is dead!


Normally changing the battery solves this.Make sure you replace it with a good quality new battery and make sure it goes in the right way around as when you get in a flap it often ends up in the wrong way! ... Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera
