Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera ?

Battery life for my camera is miserable - I've had the camera for 2 years and I'm already on my second battery. Is this a function of the make and model or do I have a faulty camera? Thank you

Answers :

Usually Olympus cameras have other batteries with longer life in them. You just have to pay more for them.
\015\012How are the contacts in your camera? are they bent to the point that they could be losing contact or is there any corriosion or oxidation to them?
It depends on what kind of battery your using. is nickel cadium or is a lithium battery there is a big difference. everything that uses a battery when in operation draws down a battery. is it rechargable? if so it could be your a/c charger is faulty and when charging the battery it's not giving it it's full charge. are you letting it fully go dead and then recharging? or are you recharging it constantly? these could be a few reasons other than the camera for poor battery life. but if a battery lasts a year i would say that it's a pretty good . hope this helps you.....please rate this

I have just purchased a Hello Kitty Polaroid instant 600 camera from ebay and because it's second hand there is no instruction book. I can't locate it on the net, all the writing is in Japanese so I'm not sure if this is the model number K7B 035B5 VD DC K&. It has a few buttons on the front and I can't work out what their functions are. It would be wonderful if you had any suggestions as to where I could get a manual. Many Thanks Trish

Hi! When I activate the power on my Olympus FE 320 (1,5 years old) it makes a "doc doc doc" noise for a few seconds, but the objektive don't come out. The answer from two shops, where I have showed the camera, told me, that the Objective must be destroid and a repairing will be as expensive as a new camera. My daughter who has used the camera at least tells me, that there was no exident with the camera. What do you think??? What can I do?? Thank you for answering soon. G.Weissinger

I turned on my cam to see the camera making everything look distorted on the screen and distorted when I actually take a picture. Every other function works fine (like the menu screens etc.) so it's not a screen problem so it might be a lens problem or something. Can somebody please tell me what's wrong? My camera is a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T3 if it helps. http://yfrog.com/0idsc03740sej Here's a picture of my laptop taken with this camera :( Thanks in advance

I have a problem with a Cannon Power Shot A610 as follows: The monitor is dark when the camera is turned on and the camera will not take photos. The playback works OK for reviewing photos previously taken before this problem developed. A Best Buy troubleshooter inspected it aand said the sensor in the cameera was bad and that I should buy a new camera because of the repair cost. I need a second opinion before making this decision. Thanks. e-mail address: [email protected]

I called Cannon Tech Support. They offered to repair mine or uugrade me to more expensive one ( rebuilt ) for less than their estimated repair price. I haven't made a decision yet. ... Digital Cameras

My EX Z1000 Casio digital camera has functioned perfectly till suddenly, without provocation, the screen refused to light up. Since then, all else seems normal, but no photo results from my use of the camera, only a black screen where the photo should be. I've already tried removing the battery for 30 seconds, but it makes no difference. Can you give me some suggestions about what to do?

The systems control board is defective or it has detected a problem with the camera "probably with the screen" this will be a very expensive repair and given the choice it will be cheaper in the long run to replace your item. ... Digital Cameras

The camera is 8.1 Mega Pixels, Model # DSC-N1. The problem: the pictures that come out are reddish and the snapshot is delayed by a few seconds whereby the camera displays "capturing" and then "processing" messages. Please help with 'how to fix' this problem. My initial thought is that it might be a wrong setting. Thank.

It sounds like you may have changed the white balance setting. The other problem could be that your memory card is getting full or needs to be reformatted. ... Sony Digital Cameras

My Dad, 91years old, received a Kodak Easyshare model z1285 from a friend for christmas. no manual. He lives 400 miles away and called to ask if I knew where the SD card goes. Since I can't see the camera I thought I would ask the experts. He thinks it goes on the end but the door won't open. Is there a trick to the door? Is there only a door on one end? Just to make sure I can explain it to him, please explain it to me as simply as possible since I have never seen the camera. Thanks.

The door to access the SD card slot is on end of the camera which is closest to the round knob on the top of the camera. If you turn the camera on end and look at the door, it has small groove in it that is about an inch long. Holding y ... Kodak EasyShare Z12851 Digital Camera

Is this a problem with the mini VCR heads? Will a cleaning help? I can not find a way to adjust tracking like on a regular VCR. I am transfering it onto my computer and would like to find a way to eliminate as much of this tracking as possible. Thanks

I found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry

No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras

The battery ran out and I was not able to recharge for a couple of days .The camera never shut down the lens still stayed out of camera body even when the battery was taken out. After recharging battery and reinserting it in the camera the camera will not function.
