I have a sony cyper-shot digital camera and have been experiencing a blurred screen as soon as the camera has been switched on and this has remained blurred whilst taking photographs. There is also a code that keeps appearing on the screen at random times. The camera has not been dropped or near any liquids of any kind. If you can offer any solutions as to why the camera may be doing this that would be greatly appreciated. Regards Tammy Mitchell

I have an SL620 Samsung Digital camera, when I try to take pictures I can't due to it saying card locked. I have taken the memory card out, re-charged, cleaned and looked at the manual for this camera. I can not find anything on how to deactivate this. I do not have a switch next to my camera or memory chip to switch over. I read the suggestion on flipping the switch I do not have one. I have no switch on any part of my camera just all the buttons for mamory etc. please help I am very frustrated

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off. I am in the process of taking it apart to figure it out but unless it is a problem of the screws needing to be tightened I don't know what to do next. Can you help me or refer me. I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks
The problem you are facing is most likely to be lens related. Perhaps it is not able to extend fully and hence retracing and turning off. The cause may be a mechanical obstruction. However before we try anything else, remove the battery hold for 1 mi ... Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera

The power switch won't turn to Off from the Player position. There is a tiny green button that usually releases the switch so it will turn. This tiny green button seems to move in but I'm not sure if it's going in far enough. I suspect it is broken on the inside where it releases. I don't know if I can remove the switch knob by prying it up off the switch or if you can suggest a method of fixing this. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on the camera (digital cameras look inviting), but I

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on.

Recently had to ship my canon Digital RebelXS/ 1000 digital camera for repair. It would keep showing me an error 99 code. the camera is only 7 mths old. I'm just learning to use this camera..
