D60: I just got back from Certified Repair group where they said the camera is "okay". The Problem: It's like the ISO has shifted, and the readings on P, S, A, even M all result in a long exposure/wide open aperture reading. Frequently the reading is such that the shutter will not release, due to no focus or wrong light amount. Frequently the focus "peep" does not go off, and so the shutter will not release. Two weeks ago it was fine, don't think I changed anything, but it's like a setting is

When turned on, my Olympus 700 Stylus digital camera shows a thin green vertical line on the right side of the viewfinder--7/16 of an inch to the left of the right edge of the viewing area. Part of this line from the bottom up appears on the images downloaded into my computer. However, when the intensity of the light is increased, the visibility of the line in the viewfinder and downloaded image is decreased. What is the problem and can it be corrected?

I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.

My Nikon D80 seems to not be letting in enough light, its struggling to do any exposures in a fairly well lit room, that are above 5th sec and regularly defaulting to 1600 ISO when in auto!

The problem I'm having with my Sony DSC F828 is that the mobile lens has come loose from the body of the camera. There are no obvious screws visible that would stabilise it. I have read that it is a commin problem for this model. I would be grateful if you could help me find a solution. Should I take it in to get it fixed professionally or can I do it myself? thank you


Hi,\015\012I had the same problem. I have done a comprehensive repair which I have documented on my blogsite: http://howtheheckdididothat.blogs ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

Over exposure The exposure settings on the camera have suddenly become fixed - I can't change them either through fixing shutter speed, OEV, or any other settings. Even tried a factory reset by selecting 'initialize' from the menu, but the problem persists. High or low exposure settings are visible on the viewfinder (i.e. changing the settings shows the picture getting darker or lighter on the screen), but once the picture is shot, it's fixed at an overexposed state.

Your CF pins in the camera are most likely bent/broken. This is a very common problem. Most repair shops will charge $150-$200 to repair this.\015\012\015\012Hope this helps.\015\012\015\012Wes ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
