My D40 does not shut off properly, and sometimes turns on by itself. It seems to be getting worse, and sometimes I can only get it to turn off by putting the on/off switch in between the two settings. Also, sometimes if the camera gets left on I have trouble taking pictures the next time I go to use it (even if the battery is still charged).
Obviously something is wrong with the on-off switch. I would have it serviced. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
I just recently bought a Polaroid t1234 from walmart and ive only had it for 2 weeks. When i turn the camera on the screen turns pink or has pink lines running across the screen. When the camera is like this it wont take any pictures, if i do the pictures turn out pink just like the screen. I dont have the receipt and so i cant take it back but i want to know what is wrong with it or how much it will be to get it fixed.

Verticle Lines When I turn on my camera, all I can see in my view-finder is many lines, almost like a multi-colored bar code. Sometimes this occurs after trying to take the first picture, but most of the time there cannot even be a first picture. When I attempt to snap a picture with the lines in the view finder and then 'recall' that picture, it is only the lines.
This is a CCD or main processor failure.\015\012Nikon will advise repair or replace. ... Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera
Memory card errors. I turn it on and get message MEMORY CARD ERROR PLEASE CHECK CARD. Occurs on different cards. Sometimes I can clean the contacts on the card and it will work. Sometimes, I can take pictures but if I remove the card it cannot be read if install it back or by a computer or printer. I use the camera as publicity in trade shows taking then printing pictures, so the cards are removed and inserted constantly. I have reformatted the card in the camera, still fails.

Blurry pictures I've had this camera for almost a year and everytime I want good pictures (vacation, birthdays, xmas) I'm disappointed with the quality of my pictures. So many of my pictures turn out blurry. And sometimes they'll look fine when reviewing on the camera, but when downloaded to my computer, the quality is poor. Some people say they keep their's on the auto setting, I find I need to keep mine on the nighttime setting to get decent pictures. Any sugggestions with settings, etc to hel

When turning on the camera, the card reader light flashes sometimes for a full minute before you can take a picture, I am using a Olympus xD 2GB memory card which works fine after the card reader light quits flashing.

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!
The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
I have a Fuji FinePix A330 camera and when I try to take a picture in the light, daylight or lamp light, lines appear through the picture. Sometimes fine lines but other times like a burst of light.

Olympus DE-510 Zoom When I turn camera on, the screen has a red T at the top, with a box saying Yes, and one saying No. The line at the bottom says Go>OK. If I click OK, I get the same screen again.

My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white. No matter what setting I turn to, I can not get the image to appear. It had been working fine till a couple of days ago. It has not been dropped. I get the same result when trying to view a picture of a card. Is there any way to reset the camera?

Twice recently, I ordered an OEM battery model LI-42B on-line, but both times, after fully charging the battery, the camera does not operate properly with the replacement battery. Once the camera would not turn on, the other time I was able to take only 2 pictures, then the camera would not retract the lens. Have other people had similar problems with OEM batteries? How can I be sure to get a battery that will work with the camera? My camera model is Olympus Stylus 7010 12 megapixel.
This doesn't sound like a battery problem. It sounds like a lens problem. Read this article:\015\012Fixing a Lens Error on a D ... Olympus Stylus 7010 Digital Camera
Negative effect. I've had my Canon Powershot S3 1S for over a year now. The other day I was taking pictures and it was working fine. I turn it off and set it down. I come back later, turn it on again and the screen shows has white lines that keep flicking over it. I turn it off and take the batteries out. Later I put the batteries back in, turn it on, and find that it is in negative effect. I'm pretty sure that my camera can't do this naturally and I've tried everything to see if I could get it
