Lens Problem I just bought an Olympus C-8080. While switching the camera on there are some 4 to 5 light pixels on the display (lcd monitor on the back of the camera), even when directing the camera into the dark.

There is no pattern to how they appear and when, but the ones you have will stay for ever. If they bother you right now, send ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!


Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have an Akai digital camera model DC6371.

On trying to operate it again today, the green light indicates the camera is on for a few seconds and the screen lights up momentarily, but the lens doesn't pop out and the camera closes down again.


Looks like you have the notorious lens stuck problem. Since you said it pops out occasionally but does not go in, it is probably a faulty motor or some kind of mechanical obstruction. A qualified camera should be able to fix this for you but I recomm ... Akai DC6371 Digital Camera
