Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago... Everything was working fine, no problems. After I bought an extra battery I tried turning the camera on but would not power up. In fact will only power on if I insert and remove the battery several times. Once I get it going, however, it powers off with the lens extended. Please tell me what my options are, s

Does the lens move while saying Access? If so, the focus is stuck. If not, the lens is stuck. Both are hardware problems and I'm afraid you will have to give the camera away for a repair. You can contact your local Sony service center or other local ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera
Dropped Camera I dropped the camera and now it wont turn on by the power button, but it does cut on when plugged to the computer to download pictures to computer. I took it to this guy around my hometown and he said it was the main circut board and it couldnt be fixed. He also said that he couldnt even get it to cut on the way that I do. After picking up my camera I tried my way of cutting it on and guess what! It worked. Please tell me what to do

I have a samsung L200 digital camera. It was working fine until my 2 year old little girl decided she needed to play with it. Not sure if she done something or not but now the camera will not work. When I try to turn it on the power button lights up but that is all that happens. The screen does not come on or anything else. Also the lens seems to be stuck and will not go back in. And I also just noticed that the power button will only turn the camera on but will not turn it off. I was trying to

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.
It seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is vi ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera
Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...

Power Over the last few weeks I have had issues with the batteries. I found that the "Eveready" brand certainly doesnt work (I am currently in India and it is hard to find anything here!) and I just went through 3 sets of Duracells but after a short period of time it tells me to change the batteries. I just changed them with new Duracells but when I turn the camera on it wont let me get past that initial little birdy which is the start up screen. I also just noticed that my zoom lens thinger is

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off.

I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.
If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera

My camera was working fine and then it gently rolled on to the rug and then it never worked right since. I got the code in the corner of the display E18 and I cannot do a darn thing with the camera now. Should I just chuck it ? ??? Its a cannon power shot A400. (When I turn it on the display light comes on and it beeps numberous times and then the E18 signal comes on and then it goes away and the camera turns off. I do not even think the shutter opens up ) The batteries are charged so what now.

The Sony Cyber-shot acts as if the battery is dead. Purchased new battery this afternoon. The camera worked fine for about a hour. I was turning the power on and then off frequently taking pictures at Bible School. The camera would turn on and then after turning it off would not power back on.

I have two issues with my Canon EOS Rebel XS. One issue has been acting up for a while: If I turn the camera on and try to shoot, it tells me shooting is not possible and to turn the camera off and on again or redo the battery insertion. The only thing that works is if I take the battery out and in and turn the camera on again. The second problem started yesterday. My camera would not turn on so I thought the battery was uncharged even though I got no message saying that. But after chargi

I have placed brand new double A batteries and when I press the power button on the camera the screen tells me my battery is low and the camera powers off.

My camera was working just fine, then the on off switch no longer works. I couldn't power the camera off. The automatic shutoff turned it off, but of course I can no longer turn it on.
Well, obviously the slide switch is no longer making contact inside the camera. There's nothing you can do...this requires a service tech...not necessarily a panasonic tech but a camera service center would do nicely and probably cheaper. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
