My 4 year old Canon Powershot A75 has suddenly quit taking pictures. The LCD has purple horizontal streaks that flucuate. The Menu, etc. still function. The camera has not been dropped. Several sources have told me I need a new camera because repair would be expensive. Is this correct?

Stupidly went to blow dust of the imaging sensor and ended up spitting on the sensor, just a little. Have tried E2 cleaning solution to clean the sensor but the marks from my spit will not go away. Do I need a new sensor and if so roughly how much are we talking?
Well depends, I would take it to a camera shop to rule that out and not mess with it anymore. You looking around $60 for the sensor depending where you live and the shop. But in genral this sensor can be dipped but I would allow them to tell you that ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera
Have old Olympus D-510 and Camedia Master 2.5 Software. Used software back with old Win98, then new computer to Win XP, downloaded update for 2.5 to work with XP. Now have another new computer with Windows 7. Question no. 1 - A friend who is a computer technician told me I dare not download any older software programs as they could ruin Win 7 operation. He said go to websites and download new software. Got to this site it says it can run a scan and replace driver or whatever is needed, but
Your friend is correct...you could cause problems trying to install an old software program on Windows 7 (although it probably would just reject it). Windows 7 sometimes comes with photo editing software already loaded. If not, there are free program ... Digital Cameras

Battery cover fell off and was gone. Where can we get a new one? We were told it's too expensive to even think about, better to buy a new camera....

PowerShot SD300 New to this stuff but flash isnt going off at all. Taking pics outside works perfect or if there is enough light.....Just called Canon and they were not that helpful at all. Told me i can send in at my expense but probably would cost about $90 or more to fix and/or I can upgrade my camera (for models that are older than I can get for under $200....they want to offer them at $150). Anybody have an issue with the flash not going off? the only thing the canon buy told me is there mi

Hello I have a faulty JVC GR-DF470. It seems that some models (not this one), had a malfunctioning CCD Image Sensor. This appears to be the case with this model. JVC will no longer fix the problem free, so I am just concerned as to how much a new Sensor would be? It sounds expensive! Thank you Allan Wilkins
This is not going to be cheap to replace. As soon as you get out of the warrenty period and end up purchasing repair parts from the factory you will usually pay as much as a new camera or very close. Repair parts are priced differently (quite a bit d ... JVC Digital Cameras

No Power Battery needed charging, charged it, placed in the camera as usual,s till no power. Just brought a new battery with the hope that the battery is faulty or past it's sell by... Have to say though.. the manufacturer said that there is a little power in the battery so I attempted it to see if there would be any joy, alas still not powering up. I currently recharging the battery to see if this does the trick... however not hopeful... Quite surprised that such an expensive bit of kit is faul

Hi! When I activate the power on my Olympus FE 320 (1,5 years old) it makes a "doc doc doc" noise for a few seconds, but the objektive don't come out. The answer from two shops, where I have showed the camera, told me, that the Objective must be destroid and a repairing will be as expensive as a new camera. My daughter who has used the camera at least tells me, that there was no exident with the camera. What do you think??? What can I do?? Thank you for answering soon. G.Weissinger

I can see the pictures I've taken on the camera just fine, but when I turn my camera on to take a new picture, I cannot see all of the scene because 1/2 of it is blocked by a black portion, so I guess you are telling me, I have bad CCD sensor. I need to check and see when I bought my camera at walmart and see if it is still under warrenty. Thanks!!

I have a problem with a Cannon Power Shot A610 as follows: The monitor is dark when the camera is turned on and the camera will not take photos. The playback works OK for reviewing photos previously taken before this problem developed. A Best Buy troubleshooter inspected it aand said the sensor in the cameera was bad and that I should buy a new camera because of the repair cost. I need a second opinion before making this decision.

I bought a Canon 40D from Amazon--through Ace Digital Photo--in a kit with a 17-85mm lens, presumably new. I replaced it recently with the 50D. Now I learn that the camera, which was never outside my home and has about 100 activations was used--quite a lot of use and significant dust on the sensor. I was cheated, obviously. I can see the dust myself and a camera shop told me the camera was used extensively. Well, I am pretty disappointed. The purchase date was around 08/01/2008 and I still
This is not a Canon web site. But I seriously doubt that Canon would send used cameras to its dealers -- where would they get them? More likely one of Ace's former customers returned the camera and Ace re-sold it as new. Your unfortunate situation is ... Canon Digital Cameras

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking.
