I have a furjifilm finepix z200fd camera. I actually have two of them. I bought one and had it a year and it just stopped turning on one day. I bought another, cuz i liked the camera and just thought it was something we did to break the first one. a few months later the second one just stopped turning on. i think it may be the slider to that you slide to turn it on. Is there any ideas on what to do to fix it?

My polaroid 300 instant camera is leaving 3 distinct white spots in the exact same location on every photo taken. When you look closly at the photo, you can see the white spots are indentations on the film. I've gone through 4 rolls thinking it might be the film, but I'm beginning to think it's the camera. Any suggestions?

When shooting a movie, the camera automatically stops recording after 5 seconds. about 2 seconds before it stops recording, something like a meter bar appears on the right of screen, and it jumps up from 1 block to 4 blocks and stops recording. I can't record a movie for longer than 5 seconds!

I have a Minolta Dimage 7Hi and get a 'card error' message when I turn it on, in the middle of the viewing screen. The camera acts like it takes a picture without the button being pressed, then the red light next to the card goes on and off for about 10 seconds. Then the camera shuts down. It repeats this when I turn the camera back on and doesn't respond to any other settings or button pressings. Can you help?

For my first generation GoPro camera, do I need a memory card with a class rating higher than a 2 to have better quality videos. Also my camera seems to have a mind of its own and shuts down after about 30 seconds of filming. Any suggestions?

I have had a Canon Optura Xi video camera since 2005. I like the camera except for one thing. Sometimes it records bars from previous recording over new footage.

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?
