I have a Pentax M20 camera. I love the camera but all of a sudden I find that when I turn the camera on, the camera almost instantly shuts off. I have new batteries in the camera. When the camera first starts up I can see "Green Mode" on the screen but it immediately shuts down. The camera is not allowing me to access any programming modes at all and certainly not allowing any picture taking. Until just a few days ago I have had absolutely no problems with this camera. Any advice is greatly appr

I have a Panasonic DMC-FX12 digital camera. Before I left on vacation, I took all the pictures OFF of the camera and recharged the battery. I took only 4 pictures before the error message "Built in Memory Card Full" came on the screen and refused to allow me to take any more pictures. HELP!

The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about every 2nd or 3rd time I turn the camera on). Is there somethign I can do to get the camera to retain the date and time? It is sort of annoying that I can't turn it on and take a picture quickly since it won't let me take one until I have entered the date and time. Also, I don't think it is stamp

However, just recently, sometimes when I turn the camera on, the screen is showing images to be out of focus and blurry. All the settings are correct. Some times it stays like this for hours. Other times, I can turn the camera off and then back on and the blurriness goes away. Twice the camera has frozen and I had to take the battery out. And some times when I turn the cam
