Question about Digital Cameras

2 Answers

Recently my Power Shot G-3 started washing out pictures I take outside. Here in my home it has diminished quality, but outside it gets nothing or very little. Is this something I can repair, or do I need to send the camera to a technician?

    When I said I could fix the problem, I was assuming that it could be fixed without opening the camera. I an not versed in internal repairs on cameras. If I could have some instruction what to look for and how to open the unit for inspection, I might make the repair, but the expert did not give me that. Thanks. Ellis

Ensure first that is not a setting problem. For example if camera is set to night picture, all the normal photos will be overexposed.

Reset camera to factory default, and try also removing battery for five minutes.

If the problem is not a setting problem, check if there is dust or dirt on the lens, this can cause blurry pictures, and also grayish pictures, like they are underexposed.

If you cannot fix it in this siple ways, then probably the lens are dirty from the inside.

In this case it will be better calling a technician, rather than risking to reduce your camera to a bunch of bits and screws.

You can call a technician, validate your guranty, or eventually ask a guaranty extension (if available) , by calling the phone number listed on the last pages of the owner manual.

If you know how to open and check circuit of camera, you can make it.
Problem seems CCD Imager flexible board connectors to be removed and hooked in board. This must be done with care as flexible board can be damaged easily.

A 32mb card isn't very big. If your camera takes pictures larger than 6mps, the card will fill up fast. Why not buy a larger card? You can set the picture quality to a lower setting in the menu of the camera, but if you capture that once in a lifetime shot and you want to print an enlargement, the quality will suffer. My advice...shoot in the highest quality and use a big card.

The microphone on most of these slip cameras are very small and it is possible your finger or hand was over it. And to be honest since this microphone is so small the quality is not going to be very good at all. I don't know if there really is a solution to this outside of buying a high end camera if sound quality is so important.
