Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera ?

Zoom sticking When I try to zoom in on something the dial for the zoom sticks and I can't stop if from zooming in until it hits the maximum. I'm thinking that it just needs to be cleaned and I was hoping someone could suggest a cleaning product that won't damage my camera.


Answers :

Take a piece of very lightly waxed, thin floss and run it gently under the rotating switch, all the way around it. I worked on mine!
I don't think any "cleaning products" will help or be a good idea. If you can use a brush or a sliver of paper (NOT tissue!) and work around the button, that may dislodge anything rubbing or stuck against it. Perhaps only disassembling will allow it to be cleaned properly. If you've spilled Coke or the like on it then that is very sticky (sugar) and it would need to come apart.

My samsung i70 camera wont allow me to play mp3 files even though i have put them onto the memory card. They show up that i have put them onto the memory card on my laptop, but not when i go to play them from my camera. The user manual offers no great help so hopefully someone could tell me what to do in simplistic terms. Regards, Sean.

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it

Hi, I've had my Nikon D40x now for about two months, brand new etc. I was sat by the pool today and someone dived in, sending a few splashes onto me and the camera, hardly enough to damage it at all, and i dried it straight away. But still, i tried to turn the camera on and it would not, no sign of life or anything. So i put it into the hot water cupboard overnight, and still nothing?? Could anyone suggest anything, please?? :S Thanks, Laurie.

My computer doesn't recognize my camera ViviCam 3785 I could not get my new Canon SX110 to be recognized by my pc. I was using a similar cord for another device. After I switched to the white cord that actually came with the camera - voila! No problem, it worked like a charm. I guess all cords are not made alike? This site helped me, I hope this helps someone else who may need a little more description.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera


Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View". It's not the camera nor the memory card it's the person that's taking the picture. Sorry if that was to blunt. Now say ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Zoom broken my camera was on then bed & the zoom was out to normal level. i tripped and fell on it & now the inner bit of the zoom is wedged at an andgle and wont move. i tried turning the camera on to see if it could move it at all itself and the mechanism tries 5 times then gives up and the camera turns off without turning the screen on.

'Zoom Error' Hi, I recently bought a Fuji FinePix s3000 Digital Camera. It took amazing pictures the first month or so, but recently I turned the camera on to find 'Zoom Error' across the LCD screen. I am unable to take pictures, and the lens wont Retract. I was hoping there would be a simple solution to this problem rather than a costly repair, seeing as how it was a very nice camera. Any Idea how to fix it?

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

I have a canon EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens that has a zoom lock switch. When in the unlocked position and I try to zoom the lens it sticks at around the 200mm mark and cannot seem to move it below that positon, I need to wiggle the barrel before the zoom seems to "let go" and the lens goes to other positions. This is quite a problem as the lens cannot be operated in all its positions. Also when trying to get it unstuck, it feels like I am applying too much force and could further damage
