Answers :

You may have a common firmware problem and the camera will have to be upgraded.. You can try to take the batteries out for an hour or so and replace them to see if this helps resolve the issue. Most likely a firmware problem and camera will need to be upgraded. The manufacture will do this for $50

My NIkon D70s has colored streaks and grainy pixels throughout all of my photos. This happened a few times intermittently and cleared by turning the camera on and off. It is now worse and doing it on every photo. Turning the camera off no longer clears the problem. I have tried different lenses and the problem is consistent with all of them so it is specific to the camera itself. I have reset the menu but the problem still persists.

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works properly. Unfortunately this seems to happen almost everytime the camera is turned off.

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.
