I have a Panasonic PVGS19 Mini DV Camcorder. The problem is the flip screen. Will not work when fully open. There is a picture when it is opened at about 1/4 of the way. Also, when opened and flipped over ( self portrait mode) and closed the image is upside down. Thinking it is a mechanical connection between the camera and the LCD that either need some cleaning or repair. Can I do this myself? Not cost affective to have repaired by service, I am sure. Thanks Bob http://www.fixya.com/lpregis


There is a small flat ribbon cable between the camera and the LCD display that probably has a small crack in it. Move the cable the right way and it works. The cable neds to be replaced. This is NOT a repair to be done by anyone without prior repa ... Panasonic Digital Cameras

My SONY Cypershot DSC-W55 lens will not open. The camera works, battery is charged, I can download the photos onto my computer but the lens won't open to take pictures. The camera beeps 3 times and says" turn the power on and off again." When I do that it gives me the same message and still doesn't open. Is there anyway I can clean it out myself?

Stuck Lens I fell on my camera just recently and the lens is stuck open half way. When you power it on it moves a bit to the side and up, then to the other side and up and then beeps couple of times. You can view all the pictures and see the opening screen when you turn it on on picture-taking mode but it won't open up completely. Is it possible to fix? If so how?

When I insert the cassette into the camera, I hear noise like it is setting up, but when I press play or record, whether I'm in the VCR mode or the Camera mode, it whirrs for a moment, then stops. When I open the camera to take the tape out, sometimes the tape is hanging out of the cassette, sometimes it's not. Also the power light blicks twice quickly. Thanks. Bill Freeman


\015\012The tape hangs out of the cassette which means that one of the wheels that move the tape or one of the motor moving the wheels is gone weak or is faulty.the power light blinking quickly also indicates that the motor part or wheel part i ... Panasonic Digital Cameras

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?! Many thanks

Focusing Problem I have a Casio Exilim 10.1 Mega Pixel Digital Camera EX-s10 and I have had it for a little over a year now. I dropped it in sand and the lens would open then beep then close on its own. It stopped doing that and started working though in about 2 days, but now the focus isn't focusing. When I turn on my camera the image on the screen is blurry. What should I do?

Hi welcomejee, I read all your solutions regarding the digital camera Sony DSC N2. I really have to thank you for your precious Some of the problems are very similar to mine: After the camera fell on the ground from about 2 meters in off mode the lens would come out and immediately back in 4 times in a row. After that the lens is back in, a beeping sound comes up and on the display it is written to "Turn the power off and on again". Of course that does not help at all. The lens is opening


George, this is most likely a lens issue, and more precisely, probably a stripped gear when it fell. You will have to disassemble the entire unit to get at the lens assembly, and will probably be a professional by the time you get through! ... Digital Cameras

My Olympus C3000 fell while I was downloading pictures. The download completed, but the lense was open. When I unplugged it from the computer, it made a loud beeping noise and went out. I charged the battery. The lens will not retract. The viewer is ready for a picture and shows the remaining pic count, etc., but goes out almost immediately. The download mode simply shows "No Pictures".

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

My Fuji A210 has slowly stop functioning. It will display pictures but in the photo mode it will open the lens and then turn off. I found that if I apply an external voltage to the voltage jack on the outside of the camera and I increase the voltage from 3V to 3.6V this camera works great. Just as it did when new. It seems to me that something in the camera has increased in resistance to cause the internal logic to not function. [email protected]

Hi, My D80 has suddenly developed a fault, where it registers the flash as open and in use even when its shut. This has the effect of syncing the shutter speed and limiting it to 1 200th in all modes. In addition, whilst the flash button will still change the flash mode using the command dials, it won't open the flash- almost like the camera thinks the flash is already open. I have tried prising open the flash, and it still doesn't fire even when open. There was no indication of a problem previ
