Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

Photos delete if i turn the camera off . I turn it on, and it says "26" on the screen, meaning i can take 26 pics. i'll take maybe 4 and turn it off. If i turn it on again, it will read "26" again and sure enough, when i connect it to the pc no pictures are detected. The only time i can upload pics from the camera is if I take the pics and connect it to the pc asap without turning it off.

I've got a Fiji S1000 finepix, the camera keeps sending me a 'focus error' or zoom error' that does not permit me too zoon in or out, it also does not permit me to take any shots.

Flip Ultra camera - after turning on, the Flip icon shows up, but then freezes. It won't even shut off. We have to take the batteries out to turn it off. Called customer service 3 days ago. Was told to take the batteries out for 24-48 hours, then put them back in and it should work. We did this, but the camera is still frozen. I only bought the camera this past May (2008) I was taping and then when I turned my flip off, it froze up and now won't do anything.

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything
