Having problems with your Pentax Digital Cameras ?
While in Aruba (91 degrees outside/70 degrees inside hotel room) my digital Pentax camera (Optio M50 model) developed a 'blob' in the LED view finder. It did not appear when I printed several shots to check it out, but it's still there. Is it possibly condensation due to the temp difference? How can I get rid of it? I thought about trying a hair dryer. Please advise. Thank you.
It certainly could be condensation. When it dried, it could have left a mark on the panel. As long as your pics turn out well, don't worry about it. If you try to take the panel off to clean it and you don't know what you're doing, you could cause major problems. However, if you're determined to do so, there are plenty of sites on Google that can show you the procedure in pictures.

I had my nikon coolpix s210 in my bag and I bumped against a wall, not that hard it seemed. I checked my camera and everything seemed fine but once I turned it on a big crack appeared on the screen. Is it worth the fix or should I just buy a new one? I checked the camera shortly before I placed it in my bag so I don't think the break came before the incident. But I'm heart broken and desperate for my camera. Please help if possible. Thank you.

My camera Ixus 80 IS does not open any more and gives lens error, it does not go in or out (possible due to a fall in closed state). Besides that, I have no possibilities to retrieve my pictures from the Memoy card any more. External readers can't retrieve the pictures aswell. So for the 2 problems I'm looking for a solution. Downloading scan programs gave no solution, because the SDHC card does not communicate anymore with any system, What to do now?

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?

I think camera was possibly exposed to either a high temp. or humidity as it was left in an auto for extended period, before which time, (lightly-used) camera was functioning perfectly. If my suspicion is correct, do you service such problems and what's your opinion as to whether it might be cost effective. Certainly you couldn't provide quote but perhaps a range? Thanks

CF error I own a Canon 400D. It worked perfectly until today. I inserted the cf card, and turned on the camera. It took a couple of seconds to light up, and I got a message that the cf card was faulty and needs to be replaced. I used another one...it said the same thing. I tried reformatting. It gave me an err99 and then said that "shooting is not possible" I formatted the card on the computer...no luck. The pins are in place, I checked.

I want a list of the likely different faults which can cause an Olympus C-5060Z not to power on. I'll do the rest. A wiring schematic would help too. I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely.
