I have put the battery the wrong way round in my canon ixus 75 & now i cannot remove the slide cover to the battery & memory card. regards richard
On the slide cover is a rubber flap which can be removed to reveal a hole showing the bottom of the battery,if you press a ballpoint pen directly onto the battery base this lessens the pressure just enough to release the slide lock mechanism.Hey Pres ... Digital Cameras

Fujifilm 10.2 mega pixels digital camera w/SR Auto Scene Recongnition 2.7 LCD. The batteries were dying, we put others in and it won't turn on. We plugged it into the DC outlet (still won't turn on). Connected it to the computer, it won't turn on. (you have to turn it on in order for the computer to recognize it, I think) Anyway why won't it turn on? The lens is stuck in the open position and we just wanted to get enought power to it to close the lens. Can you help?

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.

Hi there,It seems that there was a mechanical problem on your camera thats why it will not function properly and the lens arenot able to retract fully. better to send it into a nearest Pentax servcce center to fully check the unit. ... Pentax Digital Cameras
When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history

I accidentally dropped my camera with the lens open and it bent so now the camera cannot close, it just shuts off. My memory card is the issue though. I have put it in 2 other cameras, but I still get the Memory Card Locked error. I cannot seem to unlock it (I have flipped the switch on the side over and over and plugging the camera into the computer with the faulty card produces no response). I can't get to my pictures.

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

I have just bought a Nikon D70 body off Ebay (therefore didn't get a userguide) I am trying to charge up my battery which appears to work fine (the light shows up on the charger). When I put the battery in the camera, the battery icon flashes with only a 3rd of the battery icon full. Does this mean that there is something wrong with the charger/battery?
This is most likely to be a battery problem. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.The best way to check is to buy a new battery, then tr ... Nikon D70s Body Only Digital Camera
My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera. Battery is freshly charged, and I get the little yellow bird picture on the camera when I turn it on. It beeps about 4 times, and then turns off. Is there a safe way to get the lens to retract?
Don't play around with that lens, you can do more damage to the camera and focus with some of the stuff people tell you to try. Your camera just needs to be serviced and you'll be working great again. The shop that specializes in service for the powe ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?
