My new Canon G11, purchased in August,2010: 1) The camera cord (to load photos from camera to computer) is no longer interfacing, but the card works (I don't think it is the software as it malunctions on both office PC and home Macpro). Also noticed that sometimes when trying the cord, when I turn camere on, the lens comes out, which never happend when transferring photos via cord 2) I noticed shortly thereafter that the camer no longer "beeps" when the green in-focus boxes appear on hte view


It sounds to me like one or more of the wires in the cord has broken, or there is a problem with the USB port on the computer. Try swapping to the other ports to see if the problem goes away before going forward.If the problem is present ... Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera

She only has the camera itself. we bought her a charger for it .. which is a cord that plugs into the wall and the the side of the camera.

I have pictures on the camera, and the cord plugged into the computer, my problem is, I cannot find the place to put the other end of the cord in the camera. I know this is the correct cord, because my son-in-law down loaded before. (he is not available to do this again) Barbara

Bent lens I have dropped my canon digital camera. The lens will now not retract and it is bent at an angle. When I turn it on it just says "lens error restart camera" Can i fix this myself?


From what you describe it doesn't sound good. But here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try:\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

I have a samsung L200 camera. the battery charges in camera off the USB cable. The cable has a LED light on the camera end of the cord RED for charging Green for fully charged. Now when I charge the camera the indicator turns yellow and starts blinking. I let it charge overnight but in the morning the yellow light was still flashing and the battery hadn't taken the charge.

LCD Malfunctions I recently purchased a Fuji Finepix J10 8 Megapixal Digital Camera over a month. I like the camera and its functions; however, today when I tried to take a picture, I noticed that the LCD has dark streaking lines preventing visibility of previous taken pictures. I don't recall ever dropping it. I took back to store where it was bought, rying tto get a one-to-one exchange since it was purchased near the end of August this year. The store suggested that I send the camera back to F

I have a Canon SD780IS camera and now notice dark spots on the pictures. I tried cleaning the front of the lens with a Q-tip but they did not go away or move around. I have 2 such cameras . One with 6-8 spots and my new one with one spot. Is there a sensor that one can clean. Does anyone else have this problem


To thansen 3:\012\012Yes, eventually everyone who owns this camera will see these dust orbs in every photo they take once the problem appears, and the problem continues to worsen until you will see no image at all.

Hey there. I have a Fujfilm Finepix A820. Yesterday I noticed that when I turn it on and try to take a picture, as soon as I touch the shutter button to take a shot the camera turns off, but the lens is still out, it does not retract. My friends say this was the end of my camera. But I can do whatever I want with it, set it, watch photos I took before. Is it some kind of error, because of batteries or does it need a professional fix-up? Please help!

CAMERA IS THREE MONTHS OLD. ON MY LAST OUTING I NOTICED A PERFECT CIRCLE SPOT ONLY IN SHOTS OF THE SKY. THE SPOT IS IN THE IDENTICAL PLACE ON ALL SKY SHOT PHOTOS NO MATTER WHAT FOCAL LENGHT IS USED. THE LENSE IS CLEAN AT BOTH ENDS. I CHECKED MY PHOTOS WHEN I ORIGINALLY GOT THIS CAMERA AND THERE IS NO ROUND SPOTS ANYWHERE. THE SPOT IS IN THE UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER OF ANY SHOT WHERE THERE ARE CLOUDS OR SKY. FLASH PICTURES, INTERIOR PICTURES AND THE LIKE, THERE IS NO SPOT. PLEASE HELP...RICHIE


If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing. However, it's more likely that there's dirt on your CCD. On your camera's menu, select mirror lockup/cl ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera with 28-135mm lens

General Quality My wife bought me an Exilim EX-Z60 last year as an upgrade for my Nikon coolpix 3200. I love the style and screen size but the Nikon ALWAYS gives superior pictures. Is this just the low end of the flat cameras or should I expect more. I noticed that on my movies the sound ends about 5 seconds before the video does.


The Casio cameras tend to be the low end of the digital camera market. And Nikon is not near the top, nor Kodak or HP. The best digital cameras are from Sony and Canon, and I personally believe that the Canons are the better choice. While the Sony ... Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera

Charging problems I have recently bought a new ac adapter for my olympus stylus 600 and when i plug it in to charge it the camera will turn on and i can use it but it doesn't charge the battery. Can this be a problem with the cord or is the battery bined. Soon as you unplug the camera it shuts off and thats it. Ive tried charging it when it's off and when its on and still end up with the same results. Help me pls.....


The AC adapter is only used as an alternate power source for the camera. It is not intended to charge the battery for the camera in any way. In order to charge the camera's lithium battery you will need the charger that is designed for that battery ... Olympus Stylus 600 Digital Camera

My 6 month-old Nikon D90 has been acting-up for quite some time. I take ALL my pictures at LARGE size, as they may end up in competitions or exhibition. However, without warning,the size changes occasionally to SMALL or MEDIUM, often twice, or more, in the one day. I only discover this when I notice the number of frames left has doubled or more. I had the same problem with my previous camera, a D70, which I eventually gave away to a friend.


Nikon have gone rubbish. Their 'support' people are very unlikely to respond, or be of any help, or care. My five month old D90 has gone wrong and they want to charge me more than the cost - I suspect - of its manufacture, to put it right.You g ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

My D80 was purchased in April 2008 along with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom lens. The camera and lens worked flawlesly until this past week end. The cameral stopped focusing in auto mode with no warning. I did hear a whining noise when I tried a Tamron 11-18mm wide angle lens. The auto focus did not work with that lens either.

My camera died with the lens out. then the next day i recharged it but it wasn't turning on. I noticed the lens was bent out so i pushed it in and it went in easily. Now when i press the power button the blue and green light turns on but when i let go of the power button it turns off


Was the camera dropped? Bent lens is not a good sign and possibly needs to be sent in for repair. If the cost is too high to replace (unless they fix them under warranty) than it's time to replace the unit unfortunately. ... Samsung L200 Digital Camera
