Seriously confused... It was only 6 days ago when I went to my favorite photo-outlet to have my S2 CCD-chip cleaned. One of the main 'cons' of my camera is the amount of dust that is sort of living nowadays behind the viewfinder and the LCD screens. It rather bothers me that a piece of equipment -at that time costing about 2600,- euros- is that sensitive for external influences. But anyway, camera still works fine and in some way it has become a part of me. So I was very enthousiast when the ann

When I push the power-on button the LCD display briefly flashes on with the "Pentax Optio" screen and then switches off. The lens is stuck half-way open, and the camera will not stay powered up. The battery is fully charged (as well as the backup battery) so that isn't the problem. Is there a "camera reset" procedure for this camera? Other ideas?

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks

PV-DC152D CAMCORDER, LCD Display only works if it is pulled out, turned 180 degrees and pushed back into place so the display is facing you. If you move the LCD display over 3/4" away from camcorder it will go black again. Personally, I think this is an issue with some sensors that gauge when to turn on the LCD display "ON" and Viewfinder "OFF" and vice-versa. Any help on this would be appreciated since there is nothing else wrong with the camcorder.

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor
