Having problems with your Ricoh GR Digital II Digital Camera ?

My GRD II has suddenly gone dead. What are possible causes and what kind of repair costs are involved. Thanks, Fred

Answers :

Most common cause is a dead battery, but you could also have a bad charger. You will have to measure both the charger's and the battery's voltage, and ensure they're good. Also, make sure the battery's and camera's contact terminals are clean- use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser.
\015\012Here is a web blog that details things you can try to fix it yourself:
\015\012If none of these things helps, it could be a bad on/off switch, or other problems. Take it in to a camera repair shop, but get an estimate before having it repaired.
\015\012Good luck, and hope this helps.
All electronic cameras run off a capcitor which hold more voltage than what the battery delivers. Its like a lunch box you can say. When ever the on switch is activated on the capacitor will dish out the needed voltage to the cmponets needed to operate. The shutter may need 9 volts to work and the zoom may need 12 volts. Well when the capacitor gets hot or old they will tend to dry out and a hairline crack will form on the casing. When that happens the reserve voltage the capacitor was intented to store can not do no longer. The crack casing prevents that. In my opinion it is far cheaper to replace this camera with a new one. The cost to repair is far over $100 in my area and more in larger cities

Canon PowerShot A75 digital cmera suddenly went dead so I can no longer take pictures. Colors flash across the screen instead of the normal clear screen. It turns on and I can pick up the old pictures. It worked one day and then the next was gone. I love the camera and have had it for just over one year. If it costs too much to repair I won't bother, but what do I do and where do I go?

My 450d canon won't turn on and when the battery is in, the WB button (second on the right side of the screen) is blue. I have a feeling this means' get it repaired' as I had a friend borrow it and said they spilt a drink near it but not on it, but this seems like they may have spilt the drink ON my camera and have caused some sort of water damage. I'm really quite worried as I'm often told repairs cost more than the camera is worth and I don't want to have to buy another!
