Answers :

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

I have a DSC-T10 and the screen does not display any of the menu features. It is has vertical lines across the screen. I would try to initialize it using the set-up menu but can't access it. It is not under warranty and costs to much to send it in for repair...any ideas of what I could try? I did try to reset by holding down the power button for 15 seconds while battery is out but nothing changed.

My Pentax Optio M4 suddenly started to shut down and power off after starting up. It starts up normally, then gives 3 short beeps, then shuts down as if I had just switched it off. I have recharged the battery but the problem still remains. I cannot reset the camera to factory defaults as it doesn't stay on long enough for me to access the memu options.

Several days ago I accidently left my camcorder in the "on" position. When I tried to turn it on yesterday it would not power up, so I changed to a charged battery, but still no power. I tried the AC adapter, but still no power. I tried reset, but nothing. I cannot get the camera to power up.


Hi,This is a common problem. This is an internal problem and needs repair. As you have tried to use an AC adopter, that would confirm that nor the connectors is at fault. This would moreover, confirm a problem with electronic circuitry. U ... Digital Cameras

Dead Nikon D50 in mint condition... Changed lenses with the power off. Powered back on and no LCD, or any actions at all. Flash will not pop up, no shutter noise, no auto focus. No top menu, no back menu.

Tried different lenses, also without a lens. Tried with two additional Nikon brand, fully charged batteries

Sony DSC-S600 Sorrry! What happens is this:- Turn camera on,Cybershot screen opens up with musical jingle then it will say "Access" then another screen opens up saying "Turn power off and on again". Sometimes you don't get the "Access" and it will go straight into the "Power off and on again" screen. Tried this - no good. Changed batteries for fully charged brand new 2700mAh NIMH - 1.2V Uniross - still no good ! Any advice would be appreciated. Regards

MiniDV camcorder. Hello I have a video camera question. I was showing my videos on the tv to my family. I powered off when we were done and the next day I went to view them again and the camera told me to reset it. I did that but everytime i tried to play the video it would say reset. So I looked into it and i was told that the camera was not going to work. So the next day I went and bought another MiniDV camcorder and tried viewing my video on that camera and it won't let me view any video on m

I'm not sure what is relevant and what isn't but... Two days ago I tried taking a picture on my timer and all of them came out blurry. I wasn't sure why this was so I started poking around on the camera and decided to reset all factory settings. Then that evening I tried to upload my pictures to my computer as usual. The software (Picasa) locked up. I tried taking the camera out of the cradle and turning it on but it wouldn't turn on. I rebooted my computer and tried turing the camera on


Sometimes a camera software upgrade will help, but it is hard to find software online. I first would look on manufacture's website to see if there is any driver updates you can download to your pc, then do the same with picasa software. Also make sur ... Digital Cameras

My S3 IS was working perfectly until one day it powered on but simply would not snap a photo. And once it's powered on, I can't turn it off. I have to leave it on and it eventually powers down after some time. I've tried new batteries and turning it on several times without any luck. The screen powers on and I can access the menus, but it won't take a picture or zoom. Any ideas?

"whiteout" My exlim started to give what I'd describe as "whiteout" - ie pics just come out as if totally overexposed - when in the Himalayas trying to capture snow scenes. I resolved the problem by zooming in slightly for each pic, but this sol'n has now failed, and even at max zoom the pics are no good. I've run through the settings trying to ensure that all are reset to factory default - and have run out of ideas..... Seeing past correspondence about trying to get these fixed - esp near Cairn

Lens error When I first power on my camera, it tells me to retry power on. When I do, it says lens error and shuts down. The lens will extend and then close before the power shuts off, however it does not close fully. The protective shutter on the lens doesn't close completely. I have tried removing the battery and letting the camera sit for awhile hoping that the camera will reset, however this has been of no help.

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

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving
