Having problems with your Samsung SL201 Digital Camera ?

Can samsung sl201 b fixed with damage from liquid or would i be better off just buying a new camera?


Answers :

Hard to say - moisture can do some nasty things to electronics. The damage could be minor, or the camera could be fried (boiled). Before you toss it, I suggest that you take it to a local camera shop (NOT the camera department at a chain store) or contact Samsung directly via their web site. Be sure to get a firm price, not just an estimate, before you commit to anything, though. The cost for the fix can approach the price of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.

Camera was dropped in water for just seconds. It won't change between modes: play, video rec, and still shot. It is constantly in still shot mode. The battery dies quickly. I bought a new battery and it still dies quickly. Pictures taken have vertical lines and often are whited out. Anything I can do to fix this? Would it be better to buy another camera or have this one fixed?

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

I cannot turn the camera on. I guess it was dameged during my holidaying. I recall that, the camera was excidently turned on inside its holder and as the mechanism tried to push the lense out from the body it was blocked by the bag holding the camera. Now, when I try turning the camera on, the lense could not move forward at all. It gives cracking noises and turns itself off. Could this problem be fixed or better to buy a new camera? Arthur

Hi there, I have a Canon IXUS 90 IS - the lens is extended out and won't retract when pressing the 'on' button.

My camera has a delayed response when I push the shutter button down to snap a picture-it takes 3-4 seconds and then the moment is gone! Another problem I have is the pictures moniter are blurry. Also, the battery life in the camera is extremely short. I charge them on a regular basis. (My daughter threw the camera on the floor in a rage)is there any way the camera can be fixed or will it cost just as much to buy a new, better one?

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings.

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred.
