Batteries are fully charged. I can turn my camera on and look through my pictures, go through all the menus, etc., but as soon as I hit the button to take a picture, the camera just shuts off. I can immediately turn the camera back on, but it makes a strange clicking sound before it turns on. My lens is stuck out because even if I turn the camera on and turn it right back off manually, the lens does not retract.

I have a Samsung L201. I dropped my camera today (lens down) on sand, and now the lens won't go back it. Every time i turn it on it sounds a distinct 4x buzz sound, followed by a pause and then 3 beep sounds, followed by another 4x buzz sounds. There is no sand noticeable anywhere in the mechanism and was picked up as soon as it was dropped. Can I do anything to reset it myself? Please help. Thank you :)

Hi all, I have an Olympus FE-300 camera. We have had a battery issue ever since we first got it about 2 years ago. Most of the time, when we first hit the power button, the camera doesn't power up. I then pop the battery open and pop it back in and it seems to work. Then after closing it again, it seems to malfunction again. Sometimes it shows a freshly charged battery in the "red". I have bought a replacement battery, but it seems to be same exact result. This is so frustrating, I have f

Hi welcomejee, I read all your solutions regarding the digital camera Sony DSC N2. I really have to thank you for your precious Some of the problems are very similar to mine: After the camera fell on the ground from about 2 meters in off mode the lens would come out and immediately back in 4 times in a row. After that the lens is back in, a beeping sound comes up and on the display it is written to "Turn the power off and on again". Of course that does not help at all. The lens is opening

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.
