Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Troubles Turning Camera On


\015 I just received this camera as a birthday present two weeks ago. I charged it fully first thing and took a few pictures with it around my apartment. Now, I have trouble turning the thing on! The battery is more than 2/3rds charged and if I turn it on the screen illuminates a little bit but the on/off light does not illuminate and nothing works. If I plug the camera in it shows the battery is mostly charged and I can see previously taken photos but I cannot get to a mode to take pictures. This is really frustrating as I cannot figure out what is wrong. I haven't even taken the camera out of my apartment yet. \015\012\015\012I don't have the receipt as the camera was a gift. I do have the box and everything though. Any suggestions?\015

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on. When I attempt to turn the camera on all you are able to see is a black screen and there is also a buzzing noise which I assume is the lense trying to adjust itself. The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.

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

Help! Hi I am having trouble with my sony camera. Every time I turn the camera ON, the lens starts going out and the in for several times. Then, the screen tells me to turn the camera OFF.

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing

Hello, I have had this camera for a few years and have had nothing but trouble with it. This camera shuts off or locks up when you turn it on. I believe the lense gears were changed the last time I sent it in and are still not repaired. Because of the continuous trouble I have just let it set for about a year. What do you reccomend, can you repair?

My beloved camera has trouble turning on. When I move the "Power" switch, sometimes the screen flickers, so I know that the batteries are inserted correctly. I am in Hong Kong and the climate is humid and the camera has not been used in a long time. How can I fix it?

I have a Sony DSC-H1 camera and have recently removed photos from it's memory card - the same way that I've always done it before without any troubles. Now, when I put in the memory stick and turn on the camera, the screen shows "no file in this folder" and won't go any further. I've tried to go through the menu and reformat the memory stick but it didn't make any difference. What do I need to do to continue to use this memory stick?

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
