Hi, I have the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W130 digital camera - whilst away on holiday a message appears when I turn on the camera "turn power off and on again". I have done so many times but it still comes up with the same message - hence not allowing me to take any pictures.

Power Faliure My Camera Will Turn on, let me take one picture, show me it, then shut off. I think it has to do with power or one of the wires has come loose or something because there is a rattling sound inside the camera that wasn't there before this started.

Error I jusht bought a FujiFilm FinePix S2 Pro and it has been working great. But I just recently put it on my tripod and turned on the auto-timer and i clicked the shutter and waited for the picture to be taken.

Purple Pictures When in the camera mode my mvc-fd73 appears all purple, the pictures also turn out this way. I was outside taking pictures and noticed the screen color go nutz a couple of times. Came inside to take a few pictures and found the camera in this purple almost a solorized effect. The Screen looks fine in the play mode. I've tried a freshly charged battery and a fresh disk, but it made no difference.

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?

Are you getting a Err message? If so The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

The flash mechanism is broken. You will have to either take the camera to a repair shop or buy a new one. It could get pretty expensive to fix that. Also I would check with the manufactorer too see if you have any type of warranty left. ... Digital Cameras

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?

Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom
