Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera ?

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

Card Error Hello. I am having a problem with my camera reading my card. My card was working fine. I took the card out to have the pics saved onto a disk. When I put my card back in my camera it first said that the card was full but it would not pull up any pictures. So I panicked because I thought I had lost all my pictures and I went back to Target and checked out my card to see if it still had pictures on it. It did....so I saved all the pictures to a cd and I was then going to delete th

I have a Nikon S200 digital camera. I took some pictures last night, using the flash. When I flicked back through them, I found a problem. I would look at a picture as it was focusing, and after a few seconds when it was focused, it would distort in all different colors. Also, when I try to import those photos into iPhoto on my Macbook Pro, it says that the files are unrecognizable.


I have seen this problem on a few cameras, not limited exclusively to Nikon. Try replacing the memory card with another one, and make sure the camera is set to use the memory card vs. internal memory. It sounds as if the memory card is ... Digital Cameras

A85 Dead During a normal session, switching from picture-taking mode to view mode, the lens would not retract and the picture in the view froze with the current image. I could not turn off the camera. After a while, the batteries got very hot, so I removed them. I took out the CF card. Later, I replaced the batteries and the put the card back in. The camera worked very briefly, but the LCD view would not work, displaying flashing lines on a black background. New batteries didn't help. The camera

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00 and not take a picture. Turning the camera off and then on again, or removing and replacing the battery temporarily took care of the problem. Now I am getting the ERR 01 and can not take pics at all, regardless of which lens I use or whether I am using the IS option. I've tried cleaning the c

We have a Kodak 8.2 mega pixel camera that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I took pictures and then uploaded them onto my computer. Unplugged everything. When I went back to delete the pictures off the camera card, the camera would not turn on or do anything. I tried to charge the battery but when everything is plugged in it is still totally dark. We purchased a new battery thinking that was the problem and still nothing. When the charger in plugged in there is nothing - no lights at all.

My Pentax W90 camera won't stop taking pictures when I turn it on. At first, it would take 2 pictures without me pressing the shutter and the screen would get "locked" (no menu or other buttons would do anything). Then, after changing the battery, the camera continually takes pictures until I turn it off. The flash goes off with each picture. I took it in the ocean with me and I noticed it started while I was snorkeling. I don't think I got anywhere near the 20 foot depth limit. I dried it

Polaroid Model a815 just bought yesterday: I took pictures with it and turned it off to get another item to photograph. When I turned it back on I got "Card Error" then a screen to Format Card: Cancel/Execute. I could not move to hit the cancel. It would only take Execute. It sat there "Busy" until it timed out. When I turned it back on I was back to the Card Error. I removed the Card and tried a different one. None of the buttons would work, but I still had the Format Screen showing. According

Lens inoperative? When camera is turned on, there is no image on the screen, just flashing horizontal lines. It will take a picture and the flash goes off, but the result is a picture of the flashing horizontal lines. Any fix for this? Is the camera repairable? Would we send it back to Canon for repair? What would be the approximate cost? Thank you.

I purchased a Fujifilm finepix Z20fd camera from target last december. About a month ago, after putting a full charged battery into the camera I pushed the slider to turn it on and it would not come on. The battery charger tells me it is fully charged. After sliding the front back and forth a few times I left it in the "on" position and took out the battery and put it back in. It came on, but would not flash. Also I was able to close the slider, but the camera stayed on until I took out the

Hello. I have problems taking pictures with my Cobra DCA1030 indoors. The flash either seems to be entirely too bright or if I don't use the flash the picture is too dark.

Just had my Canon Powershot s1 is flash explode in my face at a meeting with over 30 people attending. I took a picture, the flash went up and suddenly it popped so loud that people ducked. There was also a fire/smoke smell coming from the flash area. Very scary. Those witnessing said they would back me up if suit filed. Checked the batteries and they work fine. The camera will take pictures still but without a flash. Hear of anything like this before? Recall issue?

I am having problems with my Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS IXUS 105 Digital Camera. when i am in the playback mode, looking through pictures, the screen will cut off at the last picture (when instead, it should just go straight to the first picture). the lens does not retract and if i press the on/off button, the camera turns back on, but then cuts off again whenever i'm trying to look through pics. I can't figure out if I need to send it back and exchange it or what. Please help me, thank you!

I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?

The LCD on my DMC-TZ5 looks like someone ran the image through one of those turn-your-picture-into-a-cartoon filters. The problem is present in both record and review modes (and menus too), both for still pictures and video. It does not affect the actual pics/video once downloaded to the computer; it's just a problem with the LCD display. It developed this problem after I took it to a repair shop to fix a stuck lens shutter/cover thingy. Before I take it back and accuse them of screwing somet
