Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S750 Digital Camera ?

What's wrong with the camera if i take a pic and the output is like a pic with stripes on it?


Answers :

This is the classic sign of a failing image sensor. There is no DIY fix, the camera must either be professionally repaired by replacing the faulty part or it must be discarded and replaced.

Repairs are not cost effective unless you can claim a free repair under warranty or if in the UK you may have additional rights under the Sale of Goods Act. Your camera may be up to three years old now and was cheap (around £150 max) to start with, so it's unlikely that either provision will cover you. New examples are still around at clearance outlets and now cost around £60, far less than any potential repair costs.

Camera will turn on. It will show stored pics, but the screen is black when trying to take pic (tho it has info on it- like how many pics I have left on memory card). If I take a pic, then it's all black. Sometimes it makes funny noises and often it will say "camera has detected an error and is shutting down. Please restart." And then the number 32.

My old camera was an Olympus Camedia c-765 digital. My new one is an Olypmus SP-800UZ 14 megapixel. The more I use the SP-8OOuz the more disappointed with the pictures I take. None of them seem sharply in focus like they were with the Camedia camera. Am I doing something wrong or is it a failing in the camera? I have tried most of the multiple settings but I am just not satisified. I thought with having more megapixels I would get a better picture. Am I wrong? Thank you


No, you are not wrong. When there are more pixels, the picture must be more clearly and you can zoom it more. Because you have experience with another Olympus camera, I'm inclined to believe that\012\012\012something is wrong with your new came ... Olympus SP800UZ Digital Camera

I purchased this camera months ago and hate it. I guess I dont know how to use it correctly. Any time I try and take pictures it seems like it take forever for the pic to take.

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

I had bought a Polaroid i733 model last march from Walgreen's. I am able to take pics but, as soon as I try to view them it shuts off...i can turn it back on to take more pics.

I have a Canon Rebel Xt that occasionally has problems with the shutter button suddenly not working. The camera is still on and all the menu buttons continue to work.

Any advise on whats going on would be great, Thanks Brandon

I turned on my cam to see the camera making everything look distorted on the screen and distorted when I actually take a picture. Every other function works fine (like the menu screens etc.) so it's not a screen problem so it might be a lens problem or something. Can somebody please tell me what's wrong?
