I have a Nikon S230 (touch screen) and out of nowhere, it said "Lens error" whenever I turned it on, and zoomed in and out then just shut off. I got really mad since it was a new camera, and hit it a couple of times. The "Lens error" went away and it returned to normal, except now the screen and all the pictures I take are extremely blurry, please help!

I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However, now when I take pictures the images seem to have horizonal lines through them if I don't use the flash. Also, if I am taking a picture outside or in a lot of light, the image ends up being extremely light. Have any suggestions?


Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about i ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Purple Pictures When in the camera mode my mvc-fd73 appears all purple, the pictures also turn out this way. I was outside taking pictures and noticed the screen color go nutz a couple of times. Came inside to take a few pictures and found the camera in this purple almost a solorized effect. The Screen looks fine in the play mode. I've tried a freshly charged battery and a fresh disk, but it made no difference.

Hey I have a problem with my fujifilm finepix jv100 camera. My mom was on vacation and the camera was working perfectly fine but then she said my aunt started using it and she pressed something and it made the camera look weird.

Blank photos Hi I've had a refurbished rebel XT for a little over a year now. It worked great until last september or so when all of the sudden for the first 50ish pictures i take it records completely black photos. If I take enough the complete blackness becomes a few black lines and finally it takes normal photos, but only until I turn it off and then I have to start the whole process over again. I made sure my software was up to date and I tried two different memory cards. Any advice?

I have a 4-5 year-old Canon Sureshot 3.2 MP (PC1037?)digital camera that has been extremely reliable. I use it for fishing trips primarily now. The viewing screen is now black and I am unable to take new pictures, other than black pictures. The menu still works and the playback of prior pictures still works. Question is whether to toss the camera or do you have a quick and inexpensive fix for this second or third camera in my collection. Thanks.

Fuzzy Pictures Hello, We are in the business of selling custom made lighting and chandelier crystals. Since our products are sold on eBay and our website, it is critical that our pictures are crisp and clear. But for some reason they mostly seem to come out fuzzy, escpecially after resizing the images. How can we take clear pictures of these shiny objects? Thanks!

I got a Nikon D5000 and 18-55mm lens. When I take pictures using focal between 18-24 mm the deep of field is not sharp especially for landscape pictures. I made at list 200 pictures (the same image) test and the conclusion was: between 18-24mm focal the far field is not clear but what it is close to lens is sharp. The sharpness is coming when I change the focal to 35-55mm. I got a Nikon 24-70mm lens only for test purpose and the same. My test was on different modes that means P, S, A, M, and Aut

Every time I try and upload pictures onto my computer using my Nikon s4000, the pictures are extremely distorted, but look completely fine on the camera itself. I use the chord that came with the camera to transfer them onto my computer. This is the second s4000 I've had, because the first one i purchased had the same exact problem. The only way that the pictures aren't distorted are when I upload them to my boyfriend's laptop by taking the memory card out of my camera and putting it in his lapt

I cannot get my camera to take a picture...the item I am photographing does not appear in the back screen, it is just blank. I can look at previous pictures taken, but after that it goes black. can I reset, or have I pressed something that has made the camera not work as it should?? this is a panasonic lumix dmc-f10, and has been an awesome camera so far...not sure what the problem is.

Brightness I recently bought the Olympus Stylus 700 and took it on a vacation with me and it worked fine, but shortly after returning, the camera began to take extremely bright pictures, in fact if there is any natural light (not produced by the flash), there is nothing but the vague outlines of some objects. I adjusted the shutter speed to little avail and even thought formatting the memory card would help. Now I have no idea what else to do, aside from taking it back for its warranty.
