Lumix FX9 I live in Bangkok and bought a Lumix FX9 while on a trip to Dubai. The f...ing thing stopped working 5 months ago and I took it to the Panasonic Repair Centre in Bangkok. After 41/2 months they tell me that they can't repair it 'cos they don't stock the parts for that model. They refuse any help just smiling and shrugging their shoulders and basically saying "tough shit you should have bought from a proper manufacturer that provides world wide service". the Panasonic repair facility in

I have a Nikon D-80 with 18-135 kit lens. after 2 years 5 months (and thus out of warranty) very careful use, it displayed ERR and froze. No change of lens, reset etc. made any difference. The place where I bought it said it had to go to Nikon UK for repair (carriage charge GBP20). Estimate for repair is GBP150. Is there a problem with this camera/lens combination that would make it of unsatisfactory quality under the UK Sale of goods act 1979? Thanks in advance

Digimax 500 My Digimax 500 camera makes 3 beeps and then it shuts down. NONE of the on-line tips work for me. Believe me, I have tried them all. Three months ago it did the very same thing. I sent it to a Samsug authed repair facility in NYC and they replaced the gear drive at no charge. It worked just fine until a week ago, but now it's out of warrenty and I can't send it back again. . It's a great camera, but I'm wondering if there's some kind of fatal design flaw in this model? Please help me

Hello. I've a panasonic camera model dmc-fs10. I bought it in uk over 2 months ago and its not doing well at the moment. The screen comes on and goes off on its own even if the power switch is turned on. May I know what is the problem with it. Another thing,this camera has a 3 year protection,can I have it repaired here in australia in any panasonic center? Thanks and i need your help. Teresa
Teresa, the repair warranty can be honored in Australia if it says so in the small print. You need to show the warranty to the camera store representative. It sounds like a power problem and not always in the battery. Are you sure the cha ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera
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

'Zoom Error' Hi, I recently bought a Fuji FinePix s3000 Digital Camera. It took amazing pictures the first month or so, but recently I turned the camera on to find 'Zoom Error' across the LCD screen. I am unable to take pictures, and the lens wont Retract. I was hoping there would be a simple solution to this problem rather than a costly repair, seeing as how it was a very nice camera. Any Idea how to fix it?

I have a Panasonic Lumix FZ35.. I adore this camera, it is light, takes great photos and easy to learn. However, awhile back I encountered a problem with the setting's dial. It is not lining up correctly and now does not set to certain modes, or it skips one. This is particularly the case with the Scene setting and the close up setting. The camera is still under warrenty since I have not even had it 8 months. I was wondering if this is something that a camera repair place could adjust simply. I

My Nikon D60 fell and the lens came off. Now the lens no longer holds -- it appears that a piece of plastic has chipped which prevents the lens to click close. Where do you recommend I get it fixed. I bought it at Best Buy -- should I go there, ship to Nikon or find a local store. Is it worth repairing in the first place?
If you are no longer covered by an in-store warranty, whether an extended service or recent sale (typically 30 days) type, going back to Best Buy probably will not help (but asking about it can't hurt). \015\012\015\012Nikon Customer Supp ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens

Hello, I'm working in Saudi Arabia. My Elinchrom 3000 micro AS had a blast and few components have been damaged. Service from Elinchrom agent is almost inexistant. After a six month wait, they didn't repair-it then sent me a $2000 quote to do the work. I withdrew my unit and gave-it to a technician working for Canon's agent who's really good in flash repair. Except, he doest know how to get the parts other than the local agent - which will probably overcharge and take another six months to d

Symptoms - able to take a picture but when I would go to review the picture I would either get a message that said the image could not be viewed or the image would appear with faint vertical lines on it.

Our camera when you turn it on has a blank screen and you cannot take pictures. You can review pictures and see the different menu modes, but the screen is otherwise black. We have had it repaired once for almost $200 by a Canon repair centre with the exact same problem about 18 months ago. They said it was a shutter issue?? It sounds like it could be a CCD issue? I have written Canon customer service over 2 months ago, suggesting a defect, to which I have received no reply.

Shutter malfunctioning I bought a new camera and within a month the shutter has started to malfunction. It doesn't shut completely when switched off nor does it open completely when switched on. If you touch the shutter manually it opens. Is there a way to fix this problem myself? Since my warranty card is not signed or date of purchase mentioned by the dealer I bought it from!
No...return it for repair or replacement. It may simply have dirt in the lens cover. Digital cameras do not have shutters. ... General Electric E850 Digital Camera
