We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute

I have a Panasonic DMC-FZ30PP digital camera. I used it today and it worked fine. I turned it off and turned it on 1 hour later and it was dead. There is nothing in the way of a screen or even a beep. I switched to my spare battery and still nothing. I charged the battery and the camera is still dead. It was not dropped. What can I do next?

Sony DSC-W100 I own a sony dsc w100 and it has been taking great photos. Unfortunatly I switched it on today and it no longer seems to be a ble to focus. I have cleaned the lens and the little circular piece of glass (think this bit measures distance for focus) but my photos are still blurred. The camera seems to permenantly have a little icon saying 'saf' in the bottom left corner of the screen. I wonder if this icon is the key to the problem and what it means? Is it a safe mode and if so how d

I was using my olympus XD picture card about 2 weeks ago in my camera to take photos of a birthday party. There is ALOT of precious photos on the card.

My S500 is now 7 years old and always functioned very well. Recently it no longer switched on even though batteries fully charged. Tried again a couple of weeks ago and it worked perfectly, a few days later no good again; then today switched on OK and working. Obviously I have an intemittent problem. Local camera repair quoted GBP 110 to repair but I can buy up to date replacement model for about GBP 125 which I may do. However I'd still like to repair my S5000. Have you any suggestions please

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all. I tried to connect it to my computer, hoping that it will do something but still nothing. Strangely enough, the lens is on and I don't want to use force to put it back inside, afraid that it might damage the camera even more.Should I send it for repair? and if yes, where is the best place to do it? thanks in advance

The battery for my z33wp won't charge anymore. It has only been fully charged 3-4 times. The camera's fine because with the little bit of battery left, it still worked perfectly.

Could anyone suggest anything, please?? :S Thanks, Laurie.
