Dead Nikon D50 in mint condition... Changed lenses with the power off. Powered back on and no LCD, or any actions at all. Flash will not pop up, no shutter noise, no auto focus. No top menu, no back menu. Did the double green button reset and the hard (hole in the bottom of the camera) resets while both on and off, with and without batteries, with and without SD card and every combination. Tried different lenses, also without a lens. Tried with two additional Nikon brand, fully charged batteries

Hi all, I have an Olympus FE-300 camera. We have had a battery issue ever since we first got it about 2 years ago. Most of the time, when we first hit the power button, the camera doesn't power up. I then pop the battery open and pop it back in and it seems to work. Then after closing it again, it seems to malfunction again. Sometimes it shows a freshly charged battery in the "red". I have bought a replacement battery, but it seems to be same exact result. This is so frustrating, I have f

My Nikon D-40x has an auto focus that won't auto focus. Becasue it won't focus, it won't take a picture with the lens set to that mode. One day the camera worked fine.

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.
