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.

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

Dropped Camera I leant my camera to someone and now it won't turn on. The front of the camera is slightly separated from the back and top (the part with buttons on top). Any suggestions? I'm tempted to open it with a small screwdriver and manually put the camera back together but I'm afraid that it's probably not a very good idea. I can't bring the camera in for repair because I'm in Rwanda and can't necessarily find a canon expert here. Any help is appreciated!

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off.

I need some help to repair my Sony Cybershot DSC W50 camera. When you turn the camera on, it displays 'Access' for about 30 seconds, during which time the lens zooms in and out. Then it says 'Turn the power off and on again'. Nothing has happened to the camera - it has not been dropped and this fault just suddenly started. What can I do about this? I have had it just over a year. I’d be really grateful for any support! Thank you! Clare

So, I've had an Olympus fe-230 for almost two years now. This camera was sent in for repair under warranty about four months after purchase (August '07), because I got caught in a rain storm with it and it fizzled. Olympus fixed it up for me, and I haven't had problems since then. It is possible I may have dropped the camera at some point since then, but I really don't remember doing so.

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!

Exposure Control I have an Optio S6 that I accidentally dropped into a building's girder while doing Kite Aerial Photography. From that point on I've gotten very poor exposures. Out at a beach the photos were totally black. There are only some small nicks right above the flash, but my guess it was a pretty good hit. I took it to a Pentax Repair Center but the cost of repair equalled the cost of a new camera. I hate to just throw it out, any suggestions?
