I have a Quantaray lense 28-105mm lense. This is the second lense I have purchased because the mount seems to be weak and it breaks so therefore won't work. I have been told by the camera shop that this cannot be repaired. I looks only to be a simple repair to me by replacing the mount which it only screwed onto the lense. What is your thought on this?

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

If its only been 9 months since you bought it shouldn't it be covered for repair? espically if its a manufactures fault,which it sounds like. ... Kodak EasyShare M863 Digital Camera

I have a Canon EOS 1000D, and I've had it for almost 4 years. Recently i started having problems with both my lenses. Autofocus works but through the everything appears blurry when "focuses" and thus I can't use manual focus anymore.

A classic one... so it seems, but I could not find an answer here or elsewhere. My Lumix DMC-FP1 normally can be turned on by either opening the lens cover or by pushing the 'ON' button.

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl

A Question I find the optical viewfinder totally unsatisfactory. It is truly of-centered, my pictures come out clipped (top side) if I use the viewfinder. I'd like to hear form others if this is a common problem with the camera, or if I should return the thing back to Epson for repairs (yuks). Can this be corrected?
