I have a Panasonic DMC-FZ30PP digital camera. I used it today and it worked fine. I turned it off and turned it on 1 hour later and it was dead. There is nothing in the way of a screen or even a beep. I switched to my spare battery and still nothing. I charged the battery and the camera is still dead. It was not dropped. What can I do next?

I have the Pentax Optio M20 which was in perfect condition when I bought it. I always took care of it and left it on nice room temperatures. I had this camera for only about 9 months when it started to not turn on. I read the manual and checked for solutions but all it said was that the battery was depleted or that the batteries were backwards. Could you please tell me what could be the case? There was no water submersion either.

Negative effect. I've had my Canon Powershot S3 1S for over a year now. The other day I was taking pictures and it was working fine. I turn it off and set it down. I come back later, turn it on again and the screen shows has white lines that keep flicking over it. I turn it off and take the batteries out. Later I put the batteries back in, turn it on, and find that it is in negative effect. I'm pretty sure that my camera can't do this naturally and I've tried everything to see if I could get it

I have a DSC H10 camera. Today I put it in a plastic with a water bottle that wasn't close tightly. It got wet and now I've taken out out the battery and the memory card. I let the water drain out, I wiped out the battery chamber. I turned it on a few hours after the damage was done and the screen is not very bright. Also, now I can't access my photos, but I could earlier. What do i do? Do I have to let it dry out for 24 hours before turning it on again? Do you think the damage is permanent?


Turning it on before it completely dries out usually causes a short circuit. It can take up to a week with your camera buried in a bowl of dry rice to dry out. However, since you turned it on, it may be too late but try it anyway. ... Digital Cameras

Low Battery When turning the camera on, the screen often says "Low Battery", even if the batteries are brand new. The problems seems to last a few hours, then it turns on as normal. I have tried cleaning the contacts and the battery tubes, but nothing obvious seems to cause it, or solve it. Sometimes, it cuts out to "Low Battery" in the middle of taking photos, when the charge indicator on the screen has just been at full.
