Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

My camera, a brand new s95, will not turn on. It was briefly in my handbag, in its case, and when I took it out there was a little condensation on the viewfinder at the back. I dried it off, it didn't look like much and no other part of the camera was damp. But now I can't turn it on. I have charged the battery, left it and tried again but no result. Is this fixable?

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

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?


From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera.  thanks for responding.  now i have to go thru "what to buy" again....... ... Canon Digital Cameras

We took a few pictures the night before we went to a museum. That night we put the battery for the camera in a charger that plugs into an outlet. This batery was taken out of the camera. The next morning, I was getting out of the car and the camera, in its protective bag, and it is much larger than the camera, fell. It was about, tops, 3 feet in the air. Cushening the fall, it hit my ankle. Anyway, the camera never turned on again. The camera actually makes a noise all the time like you a


Cushioned or not, your camera likely landed on the end of its lens, dislodging it from the track it rides on to zoom, or jamming it on the track so that it cannot move, and the camera powers itself off to prevent further damage when it senses the len ... Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera

Strange noises I bought it last week and its makes strage "clicky" noises when on. I've exchanged it twice and all 3 have made the same noises. Is this normal?

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

That is a mechanical problem due to the shock. The lens assembly must be taken apart and re-assembled.Try first pushing gently the lens with your finger, or tapping the back of the camera while you start up the camera at the same time. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 Digital Camera
