The flash refuses to open. you hear it going click click click trying to open when I press the force flash button on the side but it won't or can't. It also tries to open in low light settings, but can't then either. Then the error message appears in lcd screen and I have to turn the camera off and on again to start it up. Otherwise camera is working perfectly. No recent knocks or bangs, no dust damage to my knowledge.

It's an adjustment under the top cover. It'll have to be done correctly by a repair shop ( sometimes you can encourage it by putting light upward pressure, but you risk breaking the latch and it'll stick again anyway ).

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off

If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

When I press the wall button to open the door I hear a clicking sound, but nothing happens. I have checked the sensors and they are in order. I have also checked to make sure that there is power to the...

Use the pull cord and disconnect the opener from the door. Operate the opener and let the carrier slide back away from the door. Is the carrier moving smoothly when disconnected? Next, lift the door by hand from the bottom to the top. Is it moving smoothly? If not, lubricate the axles of all the rollers on both sides of the door. Check the cable pulleys at the top sides of the door channel, lubricate them as well. Are all cables in all the pulleys, there are 4. After checking those things, there is a "up force" and "down force" adjustment on the opener, try increasing the "up force" by turning the adjustment in the direction of MORE force.

Camera clicks and I get an 05 message on my canon rebel XT

Listen to the flash when you press the button. If you hear a click help the flash up and search here for how to clean the switches or the hinge. If you hear nothing the release is stuck and I don't know how you can open the flash.

Taking photo's requiring the flash.

the flash housing unit is stucked!!  Try to do this: use around 3 inches sticky tapes like scotch tape or masking tape, stick the 1/3 part on the flash housing unit , now set the release button while pulling the tape upward, do not apply too much force, you are trying to help the housing to go upward not to detached it, ha ha..( the sticky tape is safe to use, dont worry). It always work but in case it does not work from your unit try this dangerous one, using small metal and pressing the release button try to open the door ( yes, like opening the stucked door!), its dangerous that yo might detached the housing from the unit, so be carefull.

Camera lens is out, but camera is off

First deconnect all batteries, usb cable anything from the camera. Leave it for about 1 hour and then without connecting batteries press and keep the the power button pressed for about 1min. Then press twice on every other button including the shuter, zoom or stuff like that. This should reset a microcontroller that remembers the last operation done. This doesn't reset the camera. After this, connect the batteries and try to power it again. IF this doesn't work. Try to push the lens back in using your fingers. Don't force them to much if they doesn't appear to go back. Use 2 fingers to press on the lens one on each side aplying equal pressure. You may hear a click noise when the lents start to go back. Again, don't force them to much. Try these at first and then if they doesn't work, please post back and specify what does the camera do. No led's no nothing or ..?
