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

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

Battery door hinge or snap does not secure tightly, thus battery contact not good. For first aid I have fixed temporarily with strong rubber band. But that is not consistent. Kadak repair center estimates $90.o00 for repair! I can get another newer one for less that $100! Does any independent shop repair these? Or is there another better alternartive fix?? Thanks in advance for good ideas! Hank

My camera won't turn on but it'll let me view all my pictures just fine. I think their might be a problem with the shutter because it sticks out a bit. When I try to turn my camera on it'll show the FujiFilm Welcome Screen and then just go to a black screen. If there is anyone who knows how to fix this without taking it to get fixed professionally please tell me, i would be very grateful of that! If not, and you know where they can fix it (other then sending it back to the company) please inform

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Hello - I purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-T265 about a year ago in England. (I recently moved back to the US and all my belongings are in transit somewhere between here and England.) I went up to Mount Evans a few weeks ago, and the viewing screen of the camera just blanked out - the top 1/2 inch of the screen is still present, but the majority of the screen is blank, with a few vertical "lines". Can you tell me how I can get help repairing it? Is there anything I can do to trouble shoot it?

Olympus X-42 Camera - the screen has gone white (with a few thin green/purple vertical lines). When I switch on the camera the screen is white, there is no picture or menu displayed. I have checked by plugging it into the tv, and it takes pictures and goes into menus fine - it just doesn't display anything on camera screen. I have only had the camera for a week, and have not stored it anywhere humid. Is there anything I can do to fix, or do I just have to take it to get repaired?


There doesn't appear to be a solution. I have had to send mine off to be repaired. They don't provide a camera case but it is a very necessary piece of aquipment. I was told that the screen had been pressed. I can only think that this occured when tr ... Digital Cameras

No image Hi, My DSC-F717 has been sitting unused for 2 months, but in safe place. When I turn it on now, everything works perfectly except there is no image in either the view finder or the display screen, almost as if the lense cap was on! All of the settings are sown in on the display but other than that the screen is black. When I try to film something it's the same, I get sound but but just a black image.

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

Wont Focus I dropped the camera from my tall dresser about 5 feet and now it wont focus. It makes a clicking noise when I try to zoom in. Also when I zoom in it gets dark around the coners of the screen. Can we fix this or do we need to take it in and get it repaired.


If its making a noise when you try to zoom in and out I would suspect physical damage. The more you mess with it the greater the chances of damaging it beyond economic repair. I would take it to the local authorized canon repair shop. ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
