My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple


If the CCD were bad and everything else OK, you would see all the icons on the LCD (viewing screen), and you would be able to see images on the memory card that had been taken in the past while in Replay mode. The service letter you refer to covers r ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a sony DSC-W150 and the camera turns on but it says "for use with compatible battery only" and then turns off. I talked to a sony representative and they told me to take the battery out and then hold the power butter for 30 seconds but that didn't work. They told me that it is probably the firmware and said it would cost over 200.00 dollars to get it fixed is there any way I can fix this myself? What else can be the problem?


I just bought a Canon Camcorder that has some sort of code that won't let it charge up while in the camera and plug in to the house outlet, unless it is made by Canon. Maybe Sony is doing the same thing. A new Sony battery goes for $40 to $50. Cheape ... Digital Cameras

Stuck Lens My 4 year old got a hold of my Konica Minolta Dimage G6000 and now my lens is stuck half way out. It will not move in or out. When it powers on I get "system error S0042." As I do not have a lot of money I am tempted to take it apart and see if I can fix it, but I don't want to make any problem worse. Any suggestions? Thanks, Todd.

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.


Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse. This past weekend I was using it to take pictures when it started vibrating and would not stop unless I turned off the camera or put it into view mode. Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

My camera won't turn on but it'll let me view all my pictures just fine. I think their might be a problem with the shutter because it sticks out a bit.

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?

When I try to view my pictures on the LCD screen, the white area of the picture flashes. Last week on vacation, it would intermitenly stop taking pictures.

Hi, my camera may have been knocked as I have a black splurge like a spider with a black strands on the bottom left of the monitor. There are no cracks on the screen. I am wondering if this will spread. If it doesn't and I'm careful I shall leave it, but if it should become a problem, I am considering getting it repaired so long as it doesn't cost too much. Are you able to tell me what the problem is and how it may have been caused? Plus, whether it is easy to fix? Many thanks


It's definitely a broken LCD screen and is likely to get worse.Repair costs and viability depends entirely upon the make and model of camera and whether it's old enough that repairs will cost more than replacement of the camera. As you di ... Digital Cameras
