Wickedwahine Just today, the directional buttons froze up so that the up/down, left/right arrow buttons no longer work to scroll through pictures nor can I use them to navigate menu items. I removed the battery for 1 min as suggested in troubleshooting but it still didn't work. I also tried to press and hold the control and power button (just a guess) trying to trigger a reset. The directional buttons worked very briefly after that but it might just have been a fluke.
This may be an intermittant on the circuit board or the switch assembly inside of the camera. Was the camera dropped?\015\012\015\012I would not suggest trying to fix this yourself unless you have experience in this type of service and ha ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

After submerging my DSC T7 under water with the use of the proper water casing Cyber-shot SPK-THA, the control buttons to the left of the viewing screen and the focus control on top started malfunctioning. I pulled out the battery and memory card and tilted the camera such that the opening for the battery slot is facing downward thinking that if water permeated the casing, it would dry out. It worked for a while but returned to the original problem. The menu button works though but I couldn't do

The shutter release button on my Nikon MB-D10 doesn't appear to be working. The switch on the side is turned to the dot as it should be.

I purchased my G11 end of Nov 2009, and just started to have problems this morning. When shooting, the directional buttons, control dial and func/set button won't work. Also, if I zoom in on a subject the camera automatically zooms out, in, and out again... randomly, as if it had a mind of its own. When viewing photos already taken, the same problem happens. Once it happens, none of the buttons will work. This happens about 1 minute after the camera has been switched on. Is there a way in which
