Answers :

Repair will probably run from $180. to over $250. You can try to gently clean the lens with a Q-tip and cleaner.
\015\012This is a common problem with the Mavicas....The 400 and 500 models seem to last longer,but in the end..Sony has created another camera that despite it's price is a 'throw away camera" (just like the one's that used floppies)

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!

I never finalized the disc. When I went to do that last night, it read disc drive error. It told me to power it up again. I did this like 3x's. Finally I got the footage to show up so that I can finalize it. While the disc was finalizing the screen read disc drive error again and it stopped finalizing. I'm unable to get the footage that I need off the disc right now.

Canon rebel xt eos shows ERR CF. What do I do now?I tried a new flash card but still got the same error message. When I try to preview pictures I have already taken the screen says ¨no image¨.

Pictures missing some (not all) of pictures taken end up missing from the camera ; they can't be viewed on the camera or loaded into my pc. I know the pics were there but missing later. this has happened with two separate memory cards so I know it's not a card problem. I've had the camersa a few years and this is the first problem. One of the memory cards intermittantly comes up with a "memory card error" message but not the card that was exclusively in use when the problem first showed itself.


If you haven't done so yet, take one of the cards, reformat it correctly (please ask again if you need info on how to do this) and see if you get any change.\015\012\015\012Are you using a PC card reader to transfer the photos or a USB cable?\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
