Having problems with your Samsung S630 Digital Camera ?

I was taking pictures a couple weeks ago, great, clear shots. Then just as I was getting ready for another picture it went blurry. Manual zoom makes no difference in clarity. I've had it for about 3 years and it's been great up until this point. Anything I can do?


Answers :

The Charged Coupled Device or CCD is slowly going out. This is the component that receives the image after it passes through the lens. It is a very light sensitive device whose purpose is to translate the image into an electrical signal so that the electronics in the camera can process light electrically. Unfortunately this component will not last forever. Just like the human eyes, they tend to go bad after time, especially if it gets exposed to a lot of light and eventually go blind.\015\012The part can be replaced but requires skilled soldering techniques to remove it from the circuit board, thus can get expensive.\015\012My recommendation is to get another camera, since the cost to repair will probably cost more than a new one. It's surprising that this lasted three years - you got your money's worth!

My Olympus 740 digital camera does not auto focus any more. I can make it focus for the most part by zooming in, but is there anything I can do to make it start up focused? I had another Olympus camera model a few years ago that I had to send in to Olympus 3 times for the same problem.

SAMSUNG PL101 - When I take pictures, white lines appear on them. They don't appear on the screen when I am not taking a picture, and they do appear when I transfer them to my computer.

Crash I greatly enjoyed the D70 until it suddenly stopped taking pictures. I got the dreaded ERR message. WE tried different batteries, lenses, cards, etc., but to no avail. This is a real bummer. I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off! Plastic.A couple of years ago, the self-timer stopped working and Nikon had to replace the software circuits. (The warranty had run out.)


The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Che ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens

Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time

Error #e21 I've got a kodak easyshare v610, which is RUBBISH!!!, but apart from that at least I was really looking forward to make some simple photos on it, but after half a year of using it ERROR E21 appeared on the screen! It's switching off or freezing and showing photos in many different colours saying "error e21" constantly! I don't have any warranty on it. What should I do? Chuck it away? I've paid for it £350 + SD memory card £50, I know, now new one is worth no more than £120...

It may need to have cleaned the USB port in your camera. Dust and dirty can cause such failures.\015\012\015\012Other reason is that the USB circuitry in the camera's main board is defective.\015\012\015\012IF after cleaning t ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

White Pictures I have had my D40X for over a year. At first it was great. Lately about every few pictures comes out white or way over-exposed. I have to look at the screen after every picture to make sure it isn't white , if it is, I have to shoot again.


If the camera is on a very reflective surface such as sasnd or snow, sometimes the light meter can be fooled and so you have to try to find a snow mode or manually increace the apeture or shutterspeed or lower the ISO you might also check to see if t ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

How do I change pixel settings on olympus SP550UZ canera? We've had this camera for several years and managed to lower the resolution when we first bought it. Now we'd like to increase the pixel setting permanently, but can only manage to change the setting on a 'one by one' photo basis. The manual provides information about the different settings, but not how to make the changes.

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?

The lens won't come all the way out- it makes clicking noises like it wants to and kind of bounces it but doesn't come out the rest of the way. If I push the zoom button over and gently twist, it will come out all the way. Once I turn the camera off and back on it gets stuck again. (I don't know for sure the model #- I don't have it with me right now but I got it about 3 years ago.)

I have a Sony Cyber-shot 5.0 which is about 6 years old. It was working fine on Thanksgiving. I tried to use it yesterday and get no image just vertical lines, pink and white if that makes a difference. The message in the camera says "Rec. folder is 101MSDCF." I have looked through the owner's manual but do not find anything to match that message. I removed the battery and put in a new memory stick to no avail. Help!

Blank photos Hi I've had a refurbished rebel XT for a little over a year now. It worked great until last september or so when all of the sudden for the first 50ish pictures i take it records completely black photos. If I take enough the complete blackness becomes a few black lines and finally it takes normal photos, but only until I turn it off and then I have to start the whole process over again. I made sure my software was up to date and I tried two different memory cards. Any advice?

Focus camera will not focus, even sight screen is out of focus The camera will not focus. When switched on it beeps with a flashing green light near rthe view-finder and the lens housing extends. This repeats and the then the viewing screen goes blank. Pressing the AEL button will illuminate the viewing screen, but it is out of focus. Half depression of the shutter makes no difference. I had previously some intermittent operation of the zoom mechanism. The camera has not been dropped or jarred.

Colors off Something has changed.  In the beginning (years ago) my 4500 got great interior and exterior pictures.  But now the colors are off.  And fooling around with the image in Photoshop doesn't really fix it.  There is an overall underexposure without a flash (indoors and outdoors).  And a tendency to overexposure with a flash (indoors, especially).  And the colors aren't right either.  Although there are a differences between what happens to each color, the general issue is a lack of satur
