I have a Pentax Optio E60. Everything has been fine until recently it has a blank screen in capture mode: no picture, no access to MODE or MENU. It will still take a picture but you have to switch to playback to see if it worked. Any ideas?

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.

It seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is vi ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

Black Screen ive got a black screen when i take pictures; everything else on the camera works. the menu's pop up; the pictures ive taken show on review. but the actual view doesnt show anything and is completely black so whenever i take a picture its just all black. i just got this camera for christmas and it hasnt been dropped or exposed to liquid. it doesnt show a lens error number either; because i dont even think it knows it has one.. its just black though.

My D90 sometimes has an err message and also a CHA in the the ISO mode. Also there is a green LED on the back of the camera that stays on. The only way to get all this cleared is a battery pull. When this happens it wont take a picture, you cant access the menu or anything.

CHA indicates a problem with the SD card. ERR indicates a camera malfunction. Try reformatting the card which may clear the problem or try a different card. The card may be creating the ERR message. On page 259 of the D-90 users manual, Nikon says th ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.

There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Canon SD400 I dropped my SD400 and it will turn on, but the shutter will not retract. However, the screen comes on in color and then goes black and says no image. I can access the menu screen while on the picture taking mode. If I move to anything else the camera beeps three times and turns off. What should I do? Can it be fixed? Should I take it somewhere to get it fixed... and where can I take it?

Whenever I plug the USB cable into my camera, the screen goes black. It does it even when the cable isn't plugged into the computer. Even though the screen is black the camera still functions normally but it won't let me upload anything. When i try to upload my pictures it keeps saying USB Mode connecting........ then it says below that: Switch on [ MENU ] .... i don't know what to do ????

As far as I know, most cameras are made so that once it senses a USB cable (whether as being inserted physically or as a source of current), it reduces the camera to pretty much no more than a memory card reader.  It is my belief this is so you ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S650 Digital Camera

I have a Kodak Easyshare model dx5430 digital camera (5mp). It has worked like a champ for years. Last night I was at an event when the image display went dark at picture 31.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

Lumix tz3 Please turn camera off and then on again" as soon as camera is switched on. I Can view any menu, or read SD card, but cannot take any pictures. If I turn on in a picture taking mode it starts to focus and then the message appears, when I turn it off the lens does not close. If I turn on in playback mode, it works fine, if I turn it off from playback mode, then the lens closes. Basically, any picture taking mode triggers the error message. Solution?

I also have the problem of pictures not in focus. I have made a point to lock in first by pushing halfway down before snapping the picture. It's ridiculous that a picture of an inanimate object is not in focus when I'm making a conscious effort to hold my hands steady, lock in the object and then snap, and I'm in the automatic mode. This problem seriously makes me sorry I bought this camera.
