Pentax PZ1 The mirror and shutter are locked on my PZ1 film camera, I am told that it would cost more to repair than it is worth so I would like to try myself. Another expert thinks that the internal gears may be jammed or seized so I would like to know how to get at the gears. Do I remove the bottom plate and work inwards from there or the top plate?

The mirror is halfway up, and will not move when you actuate the shutter, for my Pentax MZ-30. Any button I push or switch I move, makes the camera make a whinning sound and nothing happens.

I am using Canon EOS 5D. I was taking pictures of the sunset this evening, then the mirror inside the camera dropped out inside. I opened the camera and saw the little mirror (I don't know what it's called) was not in the position it's supposed to be. I guess the glue between it and the camera didn't work, so the mirror can stick to the camera. Please help me! What can I do now? I can't afford to fix it at this time, and I don't know if it's a serious problem.
Has the mirror actually fallen off from the frame or is it that it is misaligned? Both, by themselves, are not serious problems. You do not need to pay much for fixing it. If the camera is not under warranty, you can get it fixed by a local (reliable ... Canon EOS-5D 12.8 Megapixel SLR Digital Camera w/ EF 24-70mm Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/ Autofocus L

Software Installation I recently went out and bought a Pentax Optio SV. It has 5.0 megapixels, and 4.0x zoom. Camera works fine, all that jazz, BUT its the connectivity issue. Pentax has a software that comes along with it that is obviously outdated by a longshot, and when i go to install this ACDSee for Pentax, I try to install but it just says I need Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher to continue, but i have windows media 10.0.

When I plug in my cord from the camera (Pentax Optio S5i) to my new laptop with Windows Vista I get a message saying it can't locate Pentax driver and this isn't supported by Pentax??? or something like that.
