Having problems with your Vtech Kidizoom Digital Camera ?

Water damage Good morning my daughter has a vtech camera which has broken i think she put it in the bath but i would like to get it fixed


Answers :

Glad to see I'm not the only person to drop a digital camera in the water. LOL. Here is what I did to save my camera.
First remove it from the water. Take the batteries and SD Memory card out. Toss the batteries out. Dry the memory card with a soft terry cloth hand towel and set aside. Do your best to drain the water from the camera. There is still water in the camera. Give it about 3 or 4 days to let it dry out. Leave the battery lids off and prop the camera up onto it's side so any excess water can drain or evaporate freely.
Once the camera is dry, put a set of fresh batteries in (not rechargeables) but not the memory card. Power the camera on and see if LCD comes to life.

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.


Try a hard reset first - Remove batteries and SD card, wait 5 minutes and reinsert everything and try. If the issue still recurrs, then best take it to the shop and check it out. You should still have the warranty on it. If they cannot fix it, ask th ... Digital Cameras

Alright.. Heres the question. Me and my nephew put his Sanyo digital camera onto his handel bars.

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse.

Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.

If not, and you know where they can fix it (other then sending it back to the company) please inform
