Answers :

OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!

Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.

Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

My GE A1035, which i've got about seven months ago always displays "battery exhausted" even though the battery was fully charged. I also bought new batteries to test if it was the cause but the problem was not solved. My coworker who also owned another camera borrowed the batteries from but to my surprise both batteries worked in his camera. I hope you could address this problem immediately. Thank you.

Two days ago, I took pics with my Samsung NV3. Pics showed up on the display just fine. I turned camera off, put it in a case and in my purse. Yesterday, the camera would not even turn on. I fully charged the battery and put it back in the camera. Still the camera won't even turn on. What's up?

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho
