Having problems with your Pentax Optio S7 Digital Camera ?

My optio s 10 now makes every picture bright white.

\015 The local camera shop reckon its a lens staying open for too long and they couldn't do anything with it. The camera is only just two years old\015\012and i'm dismayed with Pentax quality.\015\012\015\012 Its been well looked after, never dropped and not taken anywhere to contaminate the workings.\015\012\015\012Any ideas?\015\012\015\012Bob T.\015

\015\012Thanks for taking your secound opinion on this I really wish I can help here, The issue is if the lens is staying open then this is not going to work. Fixing it would cost more then purchase of a new one if you will.

\015\012Camera shops know there stuff, they should never steer away business but then again they should never lie to the paying public. So rather taking a complete risk on it by fixing it they handed the ill camera back. My suggestion is this take it to pentax with there out of warranty repair service should not come over $65 bucks "do nto shoot the messenger".

\015\012I feel that is the best way to go about this because if local camera shops are not wanting the task by sheer difficulty I would look to the manufacture they know best.

I've got a Fujifilm F30. Since yesterday, its not working properly. When I take photos, it 'absorbs' too much light and indoor photos becomes really bright and outdoor photos becomes nearly white from brightness. And when I transfer the pictures to computer, it has minor lines accross the picture. The video mode seems to be unaffected. What is the problem and is it worth fixing ? Would like to fix it if I can as F30 is still considered one of the best compact camera Fuji has ever made ! Thanks.

Flash When I take pictures, all of the faces are completely whited out. It's like the flash is too bright but when I adjust the flash, then it's too dark. I'm sort of confused as to what to do. I would love to be able to use the flash without whiting out all the faces and bleaching out the background. I've tried adjusting the brightness and the flash but that doesn't work. Is there anything else I'm doing wrong?
